Using data wisely can help you gain valuable insight into your people

July 8, 2013

By Dror Orbach

Does your company collect HR data and metrics? Do you know what to do with it once you have it? And most importantly, are the right people seeing it? In their SAP Insider article entitled “Move from HR Data Collection to Real Insights About Your People” (http://goo.gl/TKZc0), Jean-Bernard Rolland and Kouros Behzad stress that, far too often, the HR department within organizations cannot easily access and interpret employee data across the enterprise, leaving crucial HR metrics often unseen by

Mobile devices allow employees to connect, create, consume and control

March 13, 2013

By Dror Orbach

Can you remember a time when you didn’t rely on your mobile device to help you with your work? Many people can’t, even though this evolution is still fairly new. The fact is, a significant number of us now use mobile devices not only to communicate, but also to interpret data, interact with business applications and share a variety of information through wireless media. A report called “Key Considerations for Successful Adoption of a Mobile Platform?” by Jorge

Implementing a self-service model – where to start

February 22, 2013

By Dror Orbach

In a recent blog post, I discussed the many benefits self-service models can have within your ERP systems – including faster response times and reduced infrastructure needs.  But why are so many companies still not taking advantage of this opportunity? Perhaps they just don’t know where to begin.

Where to start? There are many different considerations. First, take a look at your business and its different functions. Where are the bottlenecks? Would self service help address and resolve them?

Doing business in the real world requires real-time communication

January 14, 2013

By Dror Orbach

Does it seem like people are busier than they used to be? Though the concept of “business hours” still applies, it’s quickly becoming obsolete. Real-time business communication across all times zones is the new normal, thanks to the interconnectedness that ubiquitous mobile technology and social media adoption has brought. Communications no longer stop when the traditional workday ends.

A recent whitepaper, “Real Time Business,” produced by Oxford Economics, (http://goo.gl/GnXrr)

explores this new interconnectedness of global markets and cultures, how it

Is a self-service model right for your business?

November 8, 2012

By Dror Orbach

You have probably heard the term “self-service” used when exploring different ways of making your business run more efficiently.   A self-service solution enables your stakeholders to easily find information, receive instructions or perform activities on their own.    Self-service solutions have some tremendous benefits – ranging from reduced time to information,  reduced error rates for data entry, faster process turn-around times and more effective back-office operations.  Yet, despite of the obvious advantages, most mid-sized companies have yet to consider

Why asking “Why” is so important to successful ERP implementation

September 26, 2012

By Larry Perlov, Illumiti

When making any major shift in technology it’s important to know the answer to “Why” first

Why is it that despite the millions of dollars invested each year in ERP projects, so few companies can show direct causality between this investment and material financial results? In almost 18 years of ERP experience, both as a customer and a consultant in dozens of companies, I have seen but a few who have set ambitious and specific improvement targets upfront,

Mobility in the enterprise reaching its tipping point

September 20, 2012

By Dror Orbach

Has your company fully embraced mobile computing yet? Don’t feel too bad if you are not sure exactly what that even means. Hopefully, this is the year it will all start to make more sense.

In fact, many feel that 2012 will be remembered as the year companies reached a tipping point in the adoption of mobility as a critical tool for the enterprise. But so far, most of us are only on the cusp of understanding the vast

CIOs and CEOs not on the same page when it comes to tech investment

September 4, 2012

By Dror Orbach

You may have heard the importance of using technology to “transform your business” and may even agree that this is needed, but do you know how to go about it, how much to invest, what to expect and where to start? If your answer is “no” to one or more of these questions, you are certainly not alone.

In fact, a recent survey conducted by McKinsey & Company and cited in the New York Times tech blog “Bits” shows that

CEOs creating more collaborative cultures: IBM

August 1, 2012

Every two years, IBM releases an impressive, massive study on emerging trends. According to SAP’s Michael Brenner, the data for this report is actually based on face-to-face interviews with more than 1,700 CEOs from 64 countries and 18 industries. Check out the original IBM report and the SAP commentary by Michael Brenner. (http://goo.gl/hngc7)

This is obviously no small undertaking, (probably one reason they only do it every two years) so you know that the answers gleaned from this are bound to
