Journal of Technology Management for Growing Economies 2020-06-25T16:36:11+0530 Dr. Jaiteg Singh Open Journal Systems <p>The<strong> Journal of Technology Management for Growing Economies</strong> (J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ.) was started in 2010 with an intent to extensively cover research work with innovations and management of technology. Technology has a direct impact on our lives. It is a well-known fact that the developed economies are surging ahead to the next level of growth whereas the emerging economies are still reeling under pressure with numerous issues to manage the innovations in multiple domains viz. education, healthcare, transport, energy, environment, agriculture and shelter among others. Here, sharing and management of technology can play a key role in making a difference to the lives of so many people providing a better quality of life. The&nbsp;<strong>J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ.</strong> has therefore been created to assess and debate about relevant technologies which could bring about a change in growing economies.</p> <p>The <strong>J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ.</strong> is a biannual, open access and fully refereed international journal. Being focused on Engineering and Management, it broadly covers contemporary research work on technology and strategies for effective management of research outcomes in these fields. We do not charge any publication fees from prospective authors.</p> <p><strong>J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ.</strong> publishes only original, unpublished manuscripts such as Research Papers, Survey Papers, Review Papers, Thesis (or Chapters thereof) and Case Studies. J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ. boasts of its fast review process. The manuscripts are blind peer reviewed within two weeks of submission and authors are communicated regarding the same.</p> <p><strong>J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ.</strong> has a team of scientists and academicians on its review panel and advisory board. The blind peer review process ensures that only high-quality research papers are selected for final publication. Critical evaluation of research paper is performed by each reviewer of J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ., with special emphasis on identification and reporting of plagiarism. At J. Technol. Manag. Grow. Econ., our endeavour is to ensure novelty in each research manuscript being published therein.</p> <p><strong>The areas of interest of J. Technol. Manag. Grow.

It relates to the activities of data sharing, data controlling and automation among billions of physical devices around the world. Lower price of processor, wireless network and inexpensive technologies result in turning any object into the part of internet. Smart environment equipped with sensors provide automation in interrelated computing devices, machines, animals and human resources. Data collected from different smart devices is being interpreted by different researchers for analyzing in order to make better business decisions. This review paper has shown experimental research on the Internet of Things published since 2013. We summarize different applications of IoT in various fields and highlighted various issues related to different factors of<br>IoT. enabled devices.</p> 2019-10-25T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2019 Amandeep Kaur et. al Redesigning Human Resource Management System through Cloud Computing: A Strategic Approach 2020-06-25T16:36:09+0530 Poonam Arora Poonam <p>Cloud computing is enabling human resource (HR) management functions to strategically integrate into business operations. Its acting as a game changer for HR amid intense competition to survive and grow. Digital disruption, transformation, agility has set the new benchmarks for organizations to automate and redesign their functions. Cloud Computing offers HR a completely new dimension with cloud centric benefits like reduction in communication gap, increased organizational excellence, effective talent strategies, data driven decision making, and supporting revenue in organizations. Cloud Computing has the right capability to redesign major HR functions with agility to match the changing requirements of business, automating transactional activities, smarter decision making and meeting the business expectations. Use of HR cloud in organization can result into structural benefits beyond technological advancements. Cloud HR gives organizations flexibility of location, prompt information processing, effective use of data analytics and strategic decision making. This paper discusses ways through which cloud computing could be integrated into HR functions. An analysis on applications of cloud computing in human resource areas with their outcomes is also presented in this paper. A brief note on future prospects of cloud computing in HRM is also discussed.</p> 2019-10-25T00:00:00+0530 Copyright (c) 2019 Poonam Arora Investment Attitude of Working Women: A Study of Education Sector in Punjab 2020-06-25T14:55:01+0530 Poonam Sharma Navdeep Kaur <p>Investment is important for improving productivity and increasing the competitiveness of an economy.
