Technology made simple



Ah, technology. To quote Steve Jobs, arguably the most famous disruptor of our time, "we have no idea how far it's going to go".

Whether you're the savviest techy around or a complete tech-dummy or somewhere in between, join Luis Salerno, who enjoys writing about tech-related matters, and Carla Santos, a journalist eager to learn more about it, during their bimonthly conversations with experts.

The matters revolve around technology developments and the business challenges linked to them, with interesting reflections on how far we've come and how far we just might go.

TechTalk is technology made simple, over a cup of coffee.

Ep8: The One on Technology to Enhance the HR function

Could the HR function escape the Attila of the XXI century, namely, the digital horde? You know the answer! Digital tools that can ease tasks related to people management and, in turn, help to boost the digital transformation of organisations are already out there. They are called Human Resources information systems, or HRIS.

In this episode of TechTalk, we speak with Shanika Charles, Director at PwC Luxembourg, about HRIS, including their capabilities and how they are evolving, but also the challenges of implementing these tools within an organisation.

Ep7: The One on Business Design

The words 'design' and 'design thinking' have joined the list of the 'buzzwords' of the decade, being thrown around in summits, workshops, conferences and even in the office’s small break room. It’s to reckon, though, that not everyone using these terms fully understands what they stand for. 

This TechTalk is a sort of 101 introductory episode to revisit and discern what design and design thinking are and, in addition, it gives us room to introduce business design and how important it is for the future of the consulting business. Our guest is Sherif Labib, Senior Business Designer at PwC Luxembourg.

The One on Social Engineering

Ep6: The One on Social Engineering

Have you ever got a phone call from someone posing as a representative from a legitimate entity asking you for your personal information, or worse, telling you that your bank account has been compromised and they need your credentials? This is just one example of Social Engineering tactics, but there is more.

In this episode of TechTalk, we speak with Christina Lekati, Social Engineering Trainer & Consultant at Cyber Risk, who tells us all about Social Engineering, including what are the most commonly used tactics and how we can spot them before it's too late.

Ep3: The One on Ethical Hacking

Very often, we hear on the news about a cyber-attack, where malicious hackers worked to disable a security system to either take it down or to steal information, usually to get a ransom.

But hacking isn't only about illegal activities. In this episode of TechTalk, Luis and I talk with Simon Petitjean, Offensive Security & Red Team Leader at PwC Luxembourg, about "the good type of hacking" - the ethical one. And who’s better placed to tell us about it than an ethical hacker himself?

Ep2: The One on Process Mining, simply Explained

The term "Process Mining" was first coined in a research proposal written by the Dutch computer scientist Wil van der Aalst, known as the Godfather of Process mining. This is how this new field of research began, emerging under the umbrella of techniques related to data science and process science at the Eindhoven University in 1999.

In this episode of TechTalk, we invited Maxime Hennau, Advisory Senior Manager at PwC Luxembourg, to explain to us, in layman’s terms, what process mining is.

Ep1: The One on Digital Procurement

The procurement function is currently changing, like most if not all business functions and operations, due to digital technology. Organisations are looking for solutions to advance procurement, which, among others, translates into cost savings and risk mitigation, while improving the employee and user experience with new digital tools. However, when betting on this transformation, there are challenges to face too. 

In this episode of TechTalk, we talk about the digitalisation of procurement with Yoliana Bayona, Advisory Services Director, and Frédéric Chapelle, Partner at PwC Luxembourg.
