Brilliant decisions start with HR insights: Three steps to turn people data into business impact

Published By: ADP     Published Date: Nov 16, 2017
People are the most important part of your organization. Understanding what they do, how they do it, and even why they do it, provides invaluable insights for optimizing your processes, department, or entire organization. And as a business leader, in many ways you’ve never had it so good. There’s more people data available than ever before, and you’ve got the opportunity to put it to work through data-driven initiatives like changes to workforce demographics, employee retention, or benefits allocations. And most important, you have a chance to fuel business decision-making with smart workforce insights. Once you’ve learned how to turn your people data into real business value, you’ll create more visibility within your business, and everyone will see that the rewards of HR analytics are worth the effort. It’s time to take the opportunity to prove the value of data-driven HR. No more darkness. Otherwise, the only journey ahead is into some challenging pitfalls. We’ve identified five of t

Core HR for the Mid-Market Professional

Published By: Workterra     Published Date: Nov 10, 2017
Mid-market HR today is being asked to be a business partner in areas that range from compliance to employee engagement. They need to be able to connect the dots among various sources of employee data to deliver better-informed business decisions to help achieve strategic goals. Connecting those dots and delivering those results demands more HR firepower and greater data visibility than the manual or homegrown processes and systems often used by mid-market organizations can deliver. On the other hand, most mid-market companies aren’t ready for the intricacies or expense of human capital management (HCM) systems designed for enterprise-level organizations. The answer for forward-thinking HR leaders who want to boost their team’s capabilities and play a greater role in their company’s future is having core HR functionality designed into an integrated benefits administration solution. Automated HR that delivers core HR features as part of its architecture — not as an afterthought or a separate, stand-alone module — gives HR leaders: • The tools they need to better handle their administrative work • The data and analytics necessary to better coordinate programs and more confidently make strategic decisions • A user experience that makes life easier for HR and employees

Your Hidden Quality-Of-Information Problems: What you don't know can hurt you

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Nov 03, 2017
Ironically, the most important business decisions are too often based not on the best available data and analysis, but on the judgment calls of HIPPOs — the highest-paid people in the organization. In large part, these individuals became HIPPOs in the first place because, over the course of their professional careers, their intuition and gut feel has tended to be more right than wrong. This approach may have sufficed in simpler, slower-moving times. But modern enterprises are too connected and too fast-paced for important business decisions to be made strictly on individual intuition and gut feel. For better-informed decision-making, your organization’s decision-makers need timely access to information they can rely on.

Real-Time Analytics

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

Redefining Real-time Database Performance

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
Databases have long served as the lifeline of the business. Therefore, it is no surprise that performance has always been top of mind. Whether it be a traditional row-formatted database to handle millions of transactions a day or a columnar database for advanced analytics to help uncover deep insights about the business, the goal is to service all requests as quickly as possible. This is especially true as organizations look to gain an edge on their competition by analyzing data from their transactional (OLTP) database to make more informed business decisions. The traditional model (see Figure 1) for doing this leverages two separate sets of resources, with an ETL being required to transfer the data from the OLTP database to a data warehouse for analysis. Two obvious problems exist with this implementation. First, I/O bottlenecks can quickly arise because the databases reside on disk and second, analysis is constantly being done on stale data. In-memory databases have helped address p

IT Transformation Trends: Flash Storage as a Strategic IT Asset

Published By: Pure Storage     Published Date: Oct 09, 2017
There’s no question about it: purpose-built all-flash storage is an exceptional catalyst for improving data center operations and supporting the transition to the cloud operating model. AFAs’ highly strategic role in both IT and business underscores the need to move storage purchase discussions and decisions beyond the storage team. IT leaders who want to see their organizations reap AFAs’ benefits—performance improvement, productivity gains, and cost savings, among others—should actively define their AFA strategies and oversee storage-related decision making, thus treating storage like the newly strategic asset it has become.

TDWI Report/Checklist “Delivering Business Value Faster with Visual Analytics” (2016)

Published By: Oracle Analytics     Published Date: Oct 06, 2017
Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance. Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse data preparation features for better data access. They support collaboration, mashups, and storytelling. TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern, up-to-date tools for working with data.
