IBM Buys Kenexa — A Dramatization

I’ve been experimenting with GoAnimate, trying to make quick videos on a range of personal and professional topics. Here’s one I just did on the latest deal in HR technology: IBM buys Kenexa http://goanimate.com/videos/0MW0S_pmXbek?utm_source=linkshare. For a more complete treatment, you may want to join the discussion over at LinkedIn (free registration required). I’ll look forward […]

Naomi’s Top Ten List — Coping With Vendor Consolidation

Don't Let This Happen To You!

Last week I delivered a keynote for HR Technology Week which I hope many of you attended and/or for which you have access to the replay. I thought that the top ten preparedness list I created for this session, with many thanks to Ed Frauenheim for suggesting it, […]

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 […]

A Tale Of Two Perspectives — Customers Of And Investors In HR Technology

Cover of serial Vol. V, 1859

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, […]

Reprise — HRM #EnSW Vendor Consolidation Fairy Tales

Fairy Tales Can Come True, It Can Happen To You…

2-12-2012 I just couldn’t help myself on this one. After another week of non-stop M&A fall-out from Oracle/Taleo, I was reminded of the post below, written just over a year ago, and thought it was not only worth a reread but also […]

Lars From Mars, The Wookey, Carmen Miranda And Me

Island Of Lost Souls — 1932

When Ron and I moved near DC in 1977, there was a late night TV program, called “Creature Features,” that we loved. It was hosted by Dick Dyszel who, for reasons lost in the mists of marital life, I nicknamed Lars from Mars. Dick played rarely shown early […]

What Just Happened To The Talent Management Technology Spend?

What Happened To The Rest Of My Pie?

Updated 12-16-2011 after the 12-15-2011 announcement of Salesforce.com’s acquisition of Rypple. If there was any doubt left in your mind that I’ve been working in the hottest, sexiest corner of enterprise software, you’ve been living under a rock. After all, in a world of subscribed software […]

M&A Observations: Oracle, Infor And… SumTotal?

When SumTotal announced in July a not unexpected acquisition of Accero (really more of an aggregation because both firms were already owned by Vista Equity Partners, a private equity firm with a now substantial stake in HRM #EnSW) along with the acquisition of CyberShift, I was not surprised. One could speculate at length, and others […]

Lawson Software — A Very Sad Ending

Lars Lawson — The Symbol Of All Things Lawson

I first wrote about the HRM enterprise software “Snowdons of Yesteryear” (with apologies to Joseph Heller for this misuse of his famous phrase, “where are the Snowdons of yesteryear” in Catch-22) in the earliest days of this blog (so 11/2009). In that original post, I […]
