Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

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 [...]

My 2014 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

[I posted my first such wish list 1/29/2013, and just writing it lifted my spirits. So, I thought to myself, why not do it again?]

Carnac In Bloom

If any of us really knew what was going to happen in 2014, wouldn’t we keep it to ourselves and invest accordingly? Furthermore, anyone worth their [...]

Yikes! Is Oracle Reeling In Salesforce And NetSuite?

The Manchurian Candidate Goes Silicon Valley

[Updated 6-30-2013 after having a little time to digest this week's overload of Oracle deals and read/listen to many other perspectives. Whatever else may have been said by those much smarter and more in the loop than I am, it remains very clear that everyone involved in these [...]

I’m Feeling Optimistic About The State Of HR Technology!

It’s Good To Be Queen!

I’ve been feeling quite optimistic lately about the state of HR technology, which is quite a good feeling. For most of my career, I’ve been frustrated by less than great software and less than great adoption of the best available software, but now there are multiple reasons for optimism [...]

Reprise — How I Evaluate HRM Vendors/Products — What Impresses Me

Show Me The Money!

[After many vendor briefings in Q1 2011, I published a series of blog posts summarizing my reactions to those briefings which really captured, as of then, how I evaluated vendors and their products/services. Rereading those posts after a two year hiatus, I was struck not only by their relevance to [...]

Reprise — How I Evaluate HRM Vendors/Products — Capability Matters

[After many vendor briefings in Q1 2011, I published a series of blog posts summarizing my reactions to those briefings which really captured, as of then, how I evaluated vendors and their products/services. Rereading those posts after a two year hiatus, I was struck not only by their relevance to my current thinking about this [...]

Reprise — How I Evaluate HRM Vendors/Products — Strategy Matters

Happy Pesach! And for those of you with a few minutes to spare, this video from http://www.maccabeats.com will get you into the right mood. For those of you who celebrate Pesach, and for those of you who don’t, my personal prayer is that every form of slavery, from physical to economic to psychological, will be [...]

Reprise — How I Evaluate Vendors/Products — Ambition Matters

Show Me The Money!

[After many vendor briefings in Q1 2011, I published a series of blog posts summarizing my reactions to those briefings which really captured, as of then, how I evaluated vendors and their products/services. Rereading those posts after a two year hiatus, I was struck not only by their relevance to [...]

Ch..Ch..Ch..Changes At Bloom & Wallace

Naomi and Ron, The Way We Were

[ We've been revising our business strategy, mix of clients, project types, and so much more on a regular basis since 1987, but this is the first time we've made such changes in the era of social tech. My own view is that we should be as [...]

My 2013 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

Never mind trying to make meaningful predictions, which are very hard to do safely when you’re under a zillion NDAs. Instead, I’m focusing my energies on what I want to happen. What would I make happen if my magic wand, bought years ago at FAO Schwarz, could be recharged? What would I ask him to [...]
