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 [...]

Applications Integration — Financials And HR

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about both business and applications integration. You may have read my modest rant on the bastardization of the term integration as used to describe how applications are connected. You also may have seen my videocast comments on the reasons why I think that your HRMS and core talent management [...]

SAP, SAP, Wherefore Art Thou SAP?

SAP Founders 1988 — Klaus Tschira On The Left

[Full disclosure: SAP has not been a client in many years, and then my work with them was quite limited.]

I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for SAP. When I published my first (and thus far only) 700+ page book in 1994 [...]

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 [...]

My First Word On #HRTechConf 2012 — And Your Best Discount Offer

Me And Mr. Bill!

I’m writing this as Fort Myers is experiencing a relatively mild summer (compared to the rest of the country’s astonishing heat, forest fires, and deluge of political ads) while getting enough rain to float all our boats. Lake Devonwood is almost up to our pool cage, and it’s only [...]

Objects To The Left Of Us, Objects To The Right Of Us

Pattern Recognition With The Cookie Monster

[This post is dedicated to Marc Maloy, SVP Worldwide Sales at HireRight, just because he asked for it. It's the story of objects from a decidedly human resource management (HRM) perspective. For you object modeling mavens, rest assured that my knowledge of this topic as it is applied [...]

Product Update: Workday 16

Workday 16 On Tablet

[Full disclosure: Workday is a client as are several of her competitors. Also, where I've noted below that something is free, a more precise description (with thanks to Dennis Howlett for suggesting this clarification) would be "included at no additional cost" if you've subscribed HCM.]

It seems like only yesterday [...]

The Future Of HRM Software: Agile, Models-Driven, Definitional Development

[Updated 6/18/2012 -- Huge shout-out to Stan Swete of Workday and Raul Duque of Ultimate (both of whose firms have been clients, as was Raul's former employer, Meta4) for their review and feedback on my much shorter first draft of this post, which addressed only models-driven development. Based on their feedback, I've now touched [...]

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 [...]

Even Successful Products Deserve A Sunset Plan

The End Of An Era Is Near

[Disclosure: This is part memoir and part advertorial, where the advertiser is Bloom & Wallace.]

If you’ve been wondering about the long delay since my last blog post, read on to learn about one project on which I’ve been working. That project has been to finalize the [...]
