Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

If You Don’t Ask The Right Qs, You Get The Answers You Deserve!

To get maximum value from attending #HRTechConf and/or #HRTechWorld, prepare your questions carefully and gather different points of view on possible answers. Be an investigative journalist in order to get useful answers to your important questions.

Introduction

It’s conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re not going to be “Trumped” during […]

Prepare Your Questions For #HRTechWorld and #HRTechConf

If you don’t ask the right questions, you sure as hell won’t get useful answers!

It’s HR technology conference season, and we’d better get our act together if we’re going to get the maximum value from our time spent at these conferences. That means knowing what questions we’re trying to answer before we’re bombarded with […]

Modest Rant — No HCM Pain/Rethink/Disruption, Then Little Business Gain

Don’t Even Think About Getting Innovation Without Disruption

[This post evolved from my Twitter reactions to a range of marketing messages and advertorials which make it sound as though their current on-premise customers, as well as the on-premise customers of other vendors, could get all the benefits of business innovation enabled by next generation […]

Modest Rant — HCM SaaS Economics — One More Time!

With a huge shout-out to Brian Sommer from whose wonderful blog post I “borrowed” this graphic.

[The impetus for this post, first published 2-21-2015, was some absolute nonsense online which sort of equated SaaS to “cloud” (and faux “cloud” at that), then suggested that, while customers might save a little in the short run […]

Applications Integration — Core HR And Talent Management

ALL CREDIT GOES TO JOSH BERSIN FOR THIS GREAT IMAGE.

[Looking for an appropriate image to convey the necessity of deep integration across core HR (whose system’s name is HRMS) and talent management (whose system’s name is usually abbreviated TM), I remembered this really terrific graphic from Josh Bersin. Giving tremendous credit where it’s […]

2014 Edition: Do You Know How To Answer These HR Technology Questions?

[ It’s HR technology conference season, and we’d better get our shit together if we’re going to get the maximum value from our time spent at these conferences. That means knowing what questions we’re trying to answer before we’re bombarded with vendors telling us that whatever they’re selling is the answer to our not-yet-formulated-clearly questions. […]

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 […]

Modest Rant — Applications Integration By Any Other Name… Is Something Else

Painting The Roses Red

Given the active discussion (debate?) over on LinkedIn about my proposed definition of true SaaS (now renamed “Blooming SaaS,” this post was intended to be more of an insistence on precise definitions than a disparagement of other business/deployment/architectural options in enterprise HRM software), I thought I’d rattle a few more […]

Modest Rant — Blooming SaaS Or Not

[After a really terrific discussion of this post’s original version, along with a zillion surrounding/closely related topics, over on LinkedIn, I’ve updated the terminology in this post as of 12-3-2013 to replace “true SaaS” with “Blooming SaaS.” This change is not intended to be facetious but rather to ensure that using value-laden adjectives, like […]

Do You Know How To Answer These HR Technology Questions?

Carnac the Magnificent

[ I published the original version of this post on 9-12-2011, just in time for the 2011 HR Technology Conference, and I did an updated edition for the 2012 conference. I had planned to do another updated version for the 2013 HR Tech Conference in Las Vegas and the 2013 HR […]
