Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

2012 Was Workday’s Year; Who Will Own 2013 In HR Technology?

And the winner is?

[Shout-out to my colleague Lisa Rowan at IDC. Her recent guest post was the impetus for my finishing this post, which I had started right after Workday went public on 10-12-2012.]

1987: Bloom & Wallace and PeopleSoft Founded

1987 was a big year in the history of HR technology. That’s [...]

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 [...]
