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 […]

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 […]

Making My Peace With Not Knowing/Following/Connecting/Clicking Through Etc.

No Wonder We're Overwhelmed!

As a toddler, I took great pride in being able to rattle off the names of all the Kittredges (Barry, Bobby, Eddy, Georgie, Chucky, Sydney, Al, Ralph and Adele), a large family who lived across from us on Somerset Street. Later, it was important to me to have read every […]

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 […]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2011

Ooooogah! Oooooogah!

Updated 10/11/2011 — join the discussion about getting to great HRM software over at LinkedIn’s HR Technology Group http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?view=&gid=1772602&type=member&item=74705112&qid=589809af-35c8-492b-b988-49f4c32dd041&trk=group_most_recent_rich-0-b-ttl&goback=%2Egmr_1772602

I’m exhausted but energized, if it’s actually possible to be in both states at once. I’ll leave it to others to do both the play by play and color commentary, neither of which […]

Matching Vendor/Product And Buyer Lifecycles

Vocabulary Shapes Our (Wishful) Thinking

This post was inspired by a Twitter exchange with a valued colleague after I tweeted that this might not be the best time to be a new buyer of Oracle PSFT/EBS HRMS given Oracle’s commitment to Fusion HCM as the next generation of these long-established product lines. My colleague […]

Monaco To Paris With Twitterscope Up

Provence, Toujours Provence

You’ll have noticed that my last post went up on May 3rd, shortly after we left for two weeks vacation. Before I return to our regularly scheduled programming, to blogs on more or less professional topics, I wanted to say a few words about this vacation and its impact on my […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — Capability Matters

HRM May Not Need Battlestar Galactica Capabilities

My first post in this series focused on the importance of understanding the ambitions of HRM software/services vendors and the implications of those ambitions for buyers/investors/employees/the industry. Next came a post focused on the different strategies of these same vendors, the many moving parts that must be […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — Strategy Matters

Show Me The Money!

In my last post, I wrote about one aspect of the way in which I look at and learn about the HRM software vendors and outsourcing providers with whom I’ve been meeting over the last few months, namely their ambition as businesses. In this post I want to take up […]

Friendship And Technology: Shout-out To Vinnie Mirchandani

Long before I had a blog of my own, way back in May, 2009, Vinnie Mirchandani, who runs Deal Architect and wrote The New Polymath along with his very active consulting/speaking practice, encouraged me to do a guest post on another of his blogs, New Florence, New Renaissance. He was hosting a series of guest […]
