Saba People 2013-Of Learning & Development Cloud Platform


I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the energy and mood permeating the Saba People 2013 event. I had expected a somber mood in light of the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Bobby Yazdani’s ousting on Friday, on the very eve of the conference. Indeed, how often does a CEO (willingly or not) step down on the eve of an important annual user conference? This issue was briefly

Saba customers seek deep functionality and scalability, whereas CSOD customers look to the snazzier Microsoft .NET UI and lower price. Jeff Carr and other employees expressed some frustration over not being able to divulge more details on Saba’s new deals (owing to the ongoing restatement).

Kronos, the company that introduced the first micro-processor time clock in the 1970s, knows how tricky workforce management (WFM) can be. In this article, TEC principal analyst P.J.

They can track “off the clock work,” which refers to indirect time—for cleaning up before or after a shift, allotted breaks, travel time between assignments/tasks, etc. While labor management systems typically measure the amount of time to perform specific tasks, they may not account for the time before or between these tasks, Read More

What Have Epicor and Activant Been Up To (Post-Merger)?


April 2011 saw the merger of Epicor and Activant Solutions to create a global leader in business software solutions. TEC principal analyst P. J.

Experiencing a Different Corporate Culture at QAD Explore 2008


No, my intent here is not necessarily to provide a typical analyst alert after attending a vendor's annual user conference, in this case the QAD Explore 2008 in Orlando, Florida (US) last month. This is not to imply that there was nothing there to write home about either. Quite the contrary, the multiple-day event was, well, eventful for market observers and hundreds of QAD's global customers

Kronos seems to be reaping the benefits from its geographic expansion into India and China. Reportedly, Renault-Nissan Automotive India evaluated lots of local time and attendance (T@A) vendors, but none of them fit the automaker's automation requirements. Kronos was selected for its ability to offer a complete solution including full automation of the punch-to-pay process, real-time
