HR technology architecture is multi-platform

Solutions include PLUG IN components built for three interconnected platforms: Edge Computing (Internet of Things) - Blockchain - Cloud.

The CLOUD is for storage and analytics
BLOCKCHAIN is for employee owned data 
The EDGE is for process efficiency and innovation


CET helps clients select and implement the right components for an organisation across all three platforms. In addition we offer clients:


  • Client can select interchangeable components using our unique online selection tool
  • Assemble their HR system from components that match business processes
  • Change components as the business changes


  • Clients can copy and paste code into their custom fields
  • Find the right code to suit their needs through standardised cataloguing
  • Collaborate with other CITIZEN DEVELOPERS


  • CET offers clients a downloadable mirror image of their code library
  • Clients can track and record the source of integrated data
  • Clients can record secondary data usage for analytics
  • Clients can record AI (Artificial Intelligence) algorithims for audit

Blockchanin technology and datat integration


CET is laying the platform infrastructure to support COVID-19 testing. The steps are:

CLOUD: Create a cloud platform for test recording and analysis. [done]

BLOCKCHAIN: Invite eligible companies to join the blockchain network. Then upload relevant employee data from their legacy HR systems. Then connect the platforms to communicate test results to the person’s employer. [in progress]

EDGE: Connect IoT device readings to the IoT platform in a standardised format for Blockchain and Cloud integration. [in progress]

CET are working with the DeHR to share the solution with the global community

data integration


The CLOUD platform is for data storage. Data about the company's workforce is the asset that HR professionals use to contribute to corporate value.

HR require a flexible data platform to store their asset and have a flexible application tool that can transact and report data in near real time. Competitive Edge Technology offers clients a pre-built HR application framework on a cloud infrastructure.

The application is built on a Low Code platform for easy customisation. Additional fields can be added quickly to support data needs for company analytics

Most HR legacy systems are still built on the Cloud using a centralised monolithic data structure and is entirely unsuitable for the new generation of HR technology components. CET is working with partners to re-engineer legacy systems to a microservices design.

CET's HR Data Platform is a downloadable packaged solution for clients to extend the capability of their current legacy HR system or use as an alternate and cheap method of protecting the continuity of their data during the economic uncertainty brought on by the corona virus pandemic.

CET were the first HR company in the world to recognise the benefits of blockchain for employee data ownership and portability

CET recognised the blockchain as source of trusted verified data, a scalable solution for employee owned data, and a decentralised secure means of managing an employee's identifiable data sought after by hackers.

In 2017 CET began reaching out to HR associations around the world to participate in a global workforce database where employees owned the data.

Employee details must be verifiable and portable as they move from one company to another.

CET became one of the first 100 companies in the world to sign up for the World Economic Forum's Presidio Principles

In 2020 CET signed a partnership agreement with IHRIM (Intentional Association for HR Information Management) to create a governance layer for the Global Workforce Database built on a private blockchain platform.

The EDGE is the new computing environment for companies seeking to use technology to gain a competitive advantage over their competitors,

Edge is the home of the Internet of Things that introduces billions of devices into corporate technology architecture

CET recognised the potential of Edge Computing for innovation and integration to back-end HR systems.

CET is using the power of Edge Computing to connect COVID-19 diagnostic devices to back end HR databases to prevent the spread of the virus in the community and to keep the workplace safe.

Air and breath testing devices can detect the presence of VOCs (Volatile Organic Components) and can indicate exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus before a person leaves home each day. That has become CET's focus and supports processes that help HR prevent transition to the workplace.

Cheap effective continuous testing is the solution to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Vaccination is critical and so is testing. We cannot rely entirely on vaccination because we know the vaccine wears off after less than one year, there will always be anti-vaxxers, and there are reports of false vaccination certificates being issued, The World Health Organisation (WHO) favours third world countries receiving their first dose of the vaccine before developed countries receive their booster and new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are emerging.

It is the frequency of testing and the practical aspects of testing that is of concern to CET.

A person can test NEGATIVE one day and then come into contact with an infected person the next. It may be weeks before a person is tested again and many contacts in the community could be infected whilst waiting for the result. Also, the infection may not show up in the first couple of days and testing will not pick those cases.
Regarding the testing process: The three most common test methods are:

  1. PCR is the gold standard and is administered by health professionals. The test samples are sent to pathologists for analysis and determination of status. The cost in Australia for a single test is approximately $95, paid by tax payers.
  2. Rapid Antigen testing. Whilst it could be administered at home or in the work place it still requires testing by a health professional to avoid FALSE NEGATIVE results and allow people to circulate in the community whilst infected.The cost is estimated to be $15.
  3. Detection of airborne particles. This is the least common method because it is not recognised by Australia’s TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) as a reliable method, presumably, due to potentially differing environmental factors and air sampling techniques.
CET believes testing must be daily to trap all instances on infection

The cost must be realistic: There are 13.2 million workers in Australia. The cost of testing everyone on a single day using the PCR method would be $1.2 billion dollars. To test the same group every working day would cost $300 billion dollars per year. If the Rapid Antigen Test was used ($15 per test) it would still cost $47 billion dollars per year. Those costs do not include labor or transportation to pathology laboratories.
The airborne particles test could be done at home without the need for a health professional and the cost would be a mere fraction of either PCR or Rapid Antigen testing. That means it is entirely practical to perform continuous testing each day before a person goes to work.

The need for shared data to protect the integrity of the process

To be realistic again, it comes down to trust and immediate communication to the employer. Data from the At Home test must be shared in near real time with the employer.
