Is Real-time Defragmentation Needed in Today’s Environment?

The exponential growth of storage requirements is driven by the information age—the thirst for information and the increased complexity and size of applications, operating systems, and data. There are bigger disks storing an abundance of larger files than ever before, so the effects of fragmentation can worsen noticeably over time. To keep up with same-day performance degradation, disks must be defragmented in real time.

Creating a Compelling Business Case for a New HR Solution

In today’s tough business environment, businesses have to be very competitive with respect to products and services and focus on saving money at the same time. In the battle for sales and customers, the victors will be the companies using their resources to the fullest, especially their human resources. Outdated and convoluted HR technology can mean disaster for a company seeking to make employees more engaged, develop a strong enterprise culture and values, and streamline recruiting and hiring practices.

The costs and time and effort involved in upgrades and maintenance for old on-premise HR solutions can be a concern. Additionally, out-of-date HR software increases the chance of inaccurate data, and can hamper the ability to create real-time reports. It is vital to ensure access to real-time information to make more informed, proactive human resources decisions faster, meaning nimble business processes and agile technology solutions are also important considerations when selecting HR technology.

In this white paper, learn how to create a strong business case for an accessible and data-driven human capital management (HCM) solution that will help your company both today and into the future. Read more about the many obstacles facing HR and payroll teams in the current business environment, and how the new class of HCM/HR features can help overcome them.  Read More

Time and Attendance: The Core of Managing and Measuring Your Workforce

This paper is based on data from more than 200 organizations in Brandon Hall Group’s 2014 Workforce Management Study. It reviews the evolution of time and attendance, the impact of automation and integration, and the key role that time and attendance solutions play in managing and measuring today’s workforce.

Some of the key findings include:
  • Organizations with fully automated time and attendance saw 67% greater year-over-year improvement in customer satisfaction.
  • Organizations automating time and attendance were 73% more likely to have real-time visibility and reporting on current time and attendance data.
  • Workforce analytics was cited as a top workforce management concern, by 54% of organizations, but just 32% indicate they are using workforce analytics tools regularly.
