Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

My 2013 And Beyond Wish List For HRM And HR Technology

Never mind trying to make meaningful predictions, which are very hard to do safely when you’re under a zillion NDAs. Instead, I’m focusing my energies on what I want to happen. What would I make happen if my magic wand, bought years ago at FAO Schwarz, could be recharged? What would I ask him to […]

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 […]

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, […]

A Tale Of Two Perspectives — Customers Of And Investors In HR Technology

Cover of serial Vol. V, 1859

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, […]

Even Successful Products Deserve A Sunset Plan

The End Of An Era Is Near

[Disclosure: This is part memoir and part advertorial, where the advertiser is Bloom & Wallace.]

If you’ve been wondering about the long delay since my last blog post, read on to learn about one project on which I’ve been working. That project has been to finalize […]

An Open Letter To HR Executives

There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Any One Of Us

Dear Sir/Madam,

We may not have met, but I’ve got your back. I’m on your side when it comes to using effective HRM practices and business rules to drive improved business outcomes in your organization. I know how hard it […]

Lars From Mars, The Wookey, Carmen Miranda And Me

Island Of Lost Souls — 1932

When Ron and I moved near DC in 1977, there was a late night TV program, called “Creature Features,” that we loved. It was hosted by Dick Dyszel who, for reasons lost in the mists of marital life, I nicknamed Lars from Mars. Dick played rarely shown […]

Naomi’s Annual “Appearance” On Mr. Bill’s Radio Show

Oh No Mr. Bill!

On Wednesday (8-31-2011) at noon EDT, I’ll be doing my fourth annual guest “appearance” on Bill Kutik’s Radio Show, which is very generously sponsored by Knowledge Infusion. I always look forward to doing these shows because Bill’s a great interviewer, the long tail of replays is enormous, and getting ready […]

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 […]

Is It Really SaaS If?

If It Looks Like A Duck…

I’ve long since put to rest the whole multi-tenancy debate around SaaS. If it isn’t multi-tenant, then it isn’t SaaS. You can host/subscribe single tenant software, and with piles of virtualization and other techniques for optimizing data center/operations costs, you may be able to approximate the operations […]
