Sometimes, it becomes hard to imagine how wide and deep is the impact of Technology on practically all spheres of our lives. Probably, even more difficult is to really catch up with the speed of its evolution, evolving constantly to stay in competition with its own-self.

Think of Human Capital Management, the epicenter of any Organization or any Endeavor to succeed- Could it have lagged behind in the journey of Technology? Definitely not and so, we have the likes of IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle etc. competing for a piece of the huge pie it has to offer.
