Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Belated Comments On Workday’s 2-27-2017 Earnings Call

[This should have been written and published in early March, but that’s when our kitchen remodel project went into what’s called demolition, and life at Bloom & Wallace has been pretty disrupted ever since. It’s going to be gorgeous when finished, but first we have to survive the process. And I can tell you from […]

From Human Resource Management To Worker Management Or ???

If you’ve read even a few of my posts, then you know I focus pretty consistently on an issue that lurks, quietly but dangerously, waiting to sabotage our best efforts to achieve improved organizational outcomes through improved workforce performance. The villain of this piece is the sloppy, inconsistent, ill-defined and rampant misuse of terminology. The […]

Smart Machines/Robotics — Implications For HRM/HRTech — Where Do I Begin?

Hi, I’m Naomi, Your HR Tech SmartyPants Robot

Last week I was privileged to deliver a presentation to the top women execs at ADP about the future of HR and HR technology. Sounds straightforward enough, but it wasn’t. My presentation wrote itself, and it demanded that I title it: ” A Tale of Two […]

InFullBloom’s 4th Anniversary — Where To From Here?

Celebrating Our 2010 Anniversary Over Dinner In The Languedoc-Roussillon, France

I launched my blog about 4 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. I so wish new readers could start at the beginning because I’ve […]

Interrogatory Configuration And Workday’s Tech Summit 2012

[Full disclosure: Workday is a client, but I attended their Tech Summit 2012 and a portion of Workday Rising 2012 as an “influencer,” and my related travel expenses were reimbursed by Workday.]

You may have thought that everything that could be said about Workday’s Tech Summit 2012 had already been posted, but […]

Everybody’s Talking ’bout Workday’s IPO, But I Think There’s Still More To Say

Everybody's Talkin'

[Full disclosure: Workday is a client as are a number of their competitors. More importantly, I been looking under the covers of HRM enterprise software practically forever, and before that I was writing the code.]

I still haven’t digested every word in Workday’s recently released S-1, nor am I likely to […]

Potential HRM Enterprise Software Landscape Disruptions — Microsoft

With the first post in this series, I introduced my concept of potential disruptors and other sources of disruption to the HRM enterprise software landscape. In that post I used Kronos and a hypothesized expansion of their functional footprint — a huge expansion of their functional footprint — combined with their global distribution capabilities, competent […]

Potential HRM Enterprise Software Landscape Disruptions — Introduction And Kronos

It's Not The Ripples From A Single Pebble But Their Interactions With Others That's My Mental Image of Market Disruption

Introduction

The idea for this series comes from the work I did to update my competitive landscape talking points before several recent client meetings. After updating the vendor by vendor notes which are at […]

Deliver Me From Today’s Hot Topics!

It’s only April, barely the start of 2012’s vendor and industry conferences with their associated rebrandings, new positionings, exciting partnerships and product announcements, and I’m already tired of the constant drumbeat on mobile/social/big data/in-memory/analytics/consumerization etc. of enterprise HRM software. When everybody’s talking about the same things — even if most vendors don’t have […]

#Consumerization, #Gamification and #Mechugasification

Mechugas — Fun But Without Organizational Purpose

I love the fact that enterprise software is becoming more like consumer software every day — more usable, more accessible, more obvious and discoverable functionality, more mobile/social/global, and with much more of the look and feel of the consumer Web sites I’ve come to know and love. […]
