Industry analysts, industry influencers — who are we? What are we. What are the ways to work with us, as a solution vendor? How should solution vendors work with us? These are great questions. There are others. And it is the rare event where analysts and influencers, as panelists, get the opportunity to provide their thoughts on these issues, and directly to an open forum-style audience.
The first day’s second session at HR Tech Alliances’ February Virtual Collaboration Zone: Partner Ecosystems Expo was just that, and it is our distinct pleasure to have appeared on this panel alongside several people we respect very much: fellow analysts in human capital management Pete Tialakos and Ben Eubanks, Rayanne Thorn Kreuger as master of ceremonies, and moderator Marilyn Pearson Hendricks, managing partner at HRTA’s sister entity, HR Tech Advisor (and my fellow Cornerstone alum). In keeping with HRTA’s charter, the theme fell back on partnerships and alliances in the HR technology space wherever appropriate, adding an interesting dynamic not often a part of these kinds of discussions.
