Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Product Update: Workday 16

Workday 16 On Tablet

[Full disclosure: Workday is a client as are several of her competitors. Also, where I’ve noted below that something is free, a more precise description (with thanks to Dennis Howlett for suggesting this clarification) would be “included at no additional cost” if you’ve subscribed HCM.]

It seems like only […]

SAP/SuccessFactors — Help Me Count The HRM Codebases

Shall We Leverage Your Code Or Mine?

[Update 12/5/2011 @ 1:40 PM EST — After an always great conversation this morning with Paul Sparta, Chief Integration Officer at SuccessFactors, here’s his update (as confirmed by Paul) on some of the important product and technology questions arising from the SAP acquisition of SuccessFactors: 1) […]

#WorkdayRising 2011 — Mostly Non-Software Observations

Aneel Bhusri and Dave Duffield, Workday Founders/Co-CEOs

Full disclosure: Workday is a client, and I was a compensated speaker at Workday Rising 2011.

After several days in Vegas at Workday Rising, attending lots of sessions (including one I did with Leighanne Levensaler, VP for HCM product strategy, in which she did the play […]

M&A Observations: Oracle, Infor And… SumTotal?

When SumTotal announced in July a not unexpected acquisition of Accero (really more of an aggregation because both firms were already owned by Vista Equity Partners, a private equity firm with a now substantial stake in HRM #EnSW) along with the acquisition of CyberShift, I was not surprised. One could speculate at length, and others […]

The Four Pillars Of ADP

It's Not Your Grandfather's ADP!

Everyone in my professional world, and most business people in general, know ADP — or at least they think they do. While ADP offers a very wide range of products/services to both employers and all types of vehicle dealers, they continue to be known most widely as “the […]

Larry Ellison And I Disagree, And Not Just About The America’s Cup

First things first. Although all responsibility for this post is mine, I want to offer my sincere appreciation to Michael Krigsman (@mkrigsman on Twitter) for his suggestions on how I could write a better, more useful and balanced post and to Dennis Moore (@dbmoore on Twitter) for his insights (with which I agree entirely) about […]

Lawson Software — A Very Sad Ending

Lars Lawson — The Symbol Of All Things Lawson

I first wrote about the HRM enterprise software “Snowdons of Yesteryear” (with apologies to Joseph Heller for this misuse of his famous phrase, “where are the Snowdons of yesteryear” in Catch-22) in the earliest days of this blog (so 11/2009). In that original post, I […]

Event Report — Ultimate Connections 2011

Ultimate HQ In Weston Florida

I rarely attend vendor user conferences unless I’m an invited speaker or otherwise participating at the request of that vendor, so I’m the last person to offer a learned comparison of conference venues, programs, parties, swag, logistics, etc. But one thing I have observed is how much […]

Bloom & Wallace Release 2011 — Constellation Research Group

In November, I posted the first installment of this series on planned changes in the mix and style of B&W consulting engagements/projects for 2011. In December, I posted about the work I’ll be doing in 2011 with Mercer’s Human Capital Operations And Technology Solutions practice with a particular focus on their Human Capital Connect solution […]

Bloom & Wallace Release 2011 — Mercer Human Capital Connect

I Hired Naomi!

Last month I posted the first installment of this series on planned changes in the mix and style of B&W consulting engagements/projects for 2011. It’s now with great pleasure that I announce one of those engagements. Beginning in January, I’ll be acting as a strategic advisor to the Human Capital […]
