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 — 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 [...]

InFullBloom’s 4th Anniversary — Where To From Here?

Celebrating Our 2010 Anniversary Over Dinner In The Languedoc-Roussillon, France

I launched my blog about 4 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. I so wish new readers could start at the beginning because I’ve [...]

HRM Analytics — Dashboards, Cockpits And Mission Control

[Many of you know that my husband, Ron Wallace, was a mission manager at NASA for international Search and Rescue Programs (official program name COSPAS/SARSAT) until he took early retirement in 1999 so that we could relocate to our present home in Fort Myers, FL. We were both fascinated by all things spacey, and continue [...]

InFullBloom’s 3rd Birthday — Here’s Where It All Started!

Happy Birthday InFullBloom

I launched my blog exactly 3 years ago, 11-8-2009. In my wildest dreams, I never expected to attract so many loyal readers — there are now 10K+ of you — nor did I realize how much I would enjoy blogging. So, with a huge shout-out to those of you who have [...]

Driving Business Outcomes — Vocabulary Shapes Our Thinking On Analytics

The Yiddish Of My Youth Still Shapes My Thinking

In a previous post, I focused on the most fundamental metrics for measuring the impact of changes in HRM, presumably intended as improvements, on revenues and profitability. Hopefully, I succeeded in offering no-nonsense, strictly financial metrics. Focusing on changes in revenues and profitability per agreed [...]

Reprise — The Road From HRM To Business Results Is Littered With Misguided Metrics

[I published a post addressing this topic right after I launched my blog 11/9/2009, and I never expected to address this topic again. Surely by now, I would have thought that we'd have broad agreement on how to measure the impact of HRM on business outcomes. But I had few readers in the beginning, [...]

What’s True SaaS And Why The Hell Should Customers Care?

Why Buy The Cow?

When I was barely into my teens, my mother’s (every mother’s of that era) version of the sex talk was captured in this expression: “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” This was long before birth control pills were invented, years before the “Summer of [...]

#Consumerization, #Gamification and #Mechugasification

Mechugas — Fun But Without Organizational Purpose

I love the fact that enterprise software is becoming more like consumer software every day — more usable, more accessible, more obvious and discoverable functionality, more mobile/social/global, and with much more of the look and feel of the consumer Web sites I’ve come to know and love. [...]
