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 […]

Hidden Talent

As some of you know from my tweets, I tap danced last night as part of a very special adaptation of a classic Fibber McGee and Molly radio show at our annual fundraiser, Radio Daze: OnStage With Florida Rep. It was quite a night, a successful and really fun evening, with many thanks to the […]

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 […]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2012

Trumpie And Me!

I’ve just reread my observations from last year’s conference, and you should too. If I say so myself, it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of what was happening then, much of which is still happening but which is much farther along, at least in some (but by no means all) vendor products […]

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 […]

There’s True SaaS, And Then There’s SaaS InFullBloom

 

Monet — Field of Flowers and Windmills near Leiden

In my last post, I provided a minimum definition of true SaaS and described the potential benefits for both vendors and customers who adhere to this now well-established concept in enterprise software. But the potential benefits are only realized as vendors move from delivering […]

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 […]

The Scourge of HRM Software — Technical Debt

Where Does Technical Design Debt Originate?

I spent a very intense week last July in Silicon Valley meeting mostly full days each with Workday, SuccessFactors, Taleo, Saba and SAP, and would like to start this post with a huge and very public thank you to all of these vendors for their time, their preparations, […]

HRM Software/Services Q1 Vendor Briefings — It’s A Wrap!

In my first post in this series on learnings from my Q1 vendor briefings/demos, I wrote about the implications of HRM software and services vendor ambitions for buyers and, more generally, for the industry. In my second post in this series, I covered a wide range of changes in the context within which these vendors […]
