Case Study: Allianz Global Investors Deploys Ceridian Dayforce to Modernize the Necessities of Employing People

What You Need to Know For well over a decade, employers have been ripping out legacy deployments of software for human capital management in favor of superior, cloud-based solutions delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS). Providing the impetus for their decision to leave these often on-premises solutions behind is, typically, some combination of factors: the desire to emancipate HCM from pernicious inefficiencies, the business rationale to lower IT-related labor expenditure and eliminate expensive yearly maintenance fees, and more. Modern technology for HCM tends to deliver automation that greatly alleviates the administrative burden associated with the last generation of software for HCM. It is unacceptable today to accept highly manual processes in payroll or anything immediately surrounding it—e.g., the human resource information system (HRIS, a.k.a. core HR), time […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Brenda Laughlin, SPHR, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Enavrio

For this episode of 3Sixty Insights’ #HRTechChat, we decided to approach our favorite subject matter, technology for human capital management, from a slightly different angle. Joining us was Brenda Laughlin, SPHR. Brenda is not only co-founder and managing partner of Enavrio, a consultancy that helps “create tomorrow’s world of work for today’s workforce,” but also CEO and principal consultant of PeakSource Consulting. A central area of Brenda’s expertise is in helping to ensure organizations’ “data collection and retention process aligns with industry rules, regulations and best practice.” This is where our discussion focused: around the extensive considerations that wise organizations take when handling their people’s data. The very idea that data privacy is important is just beginning to hit its stride, in my opinion. Highly […]

The Road to Global Payroll

The road to global payroll is paved with reactions. Let’s add that it’s paved also with good intentions. We all know where those lead, and an unaddressed global payroll process won’t exactly take you there, but the ride can be rough. This is why, for most organizations, the journey to well-sorted global payroll is long and winding — and bumpy. It is the exceedingly rare employer that sets the table to process global payroll in an efficient way the very first time the need to process global payroll arises. This is what I’ve learned, anyway, from lengthy discussions with executives in this industry. No, almost to the very last one, organizations that become global pretty much never outsource it promptly; instead, they do their best, […]

3Sixty Insights Anatomy of a Decision

Channel Fish Anatomy of a Decision SAP Business One

The first decade of the 2000s saw a sea change in IT  spending. Until about 2009, spending oversight was starkly different from what it has become at most companies today. Chief Information Officers were generally happy to sign off on anything that stayed within their budget, so IT departments were free to make the technological and system decisions they thought would be best since they would be supporting that technology should anything go wrong. In the last decade or so, however, there’s been a shift. It’s far more common today for every purchase decision to go through finance and other departments, involving colleagues who may be unfamiliar with the provider or the ultimate use of the system and potentially slowing the adoption process (3Sixty Insights […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Marc Havercroft, Chief Customer Officer for SAP SuccessFactors

For this, the latest episode of #HRTechChat, our guest is Marc Havercroft, global chief customer officer for SAP SuccessFactors. Marc and I had a conversation a couple weeks ago and were both struck by how much we have in common in terms of our views on HCM. We at 3Sixty Insights speak of abstract and concrete HCM, and how you need both. Marc shares a very intriguing rendition on this, equating the two to operational-related HCM and experience-related HCM — i.e., the employee experience. And we agree that whether it’s abstract and concrete or operational and experience, all of it comes to bear squarely and undeniably on employee sentiment. Our podcast together reiterates these points and continues in this vein. Ultimately, our discussion explores wide-ranging […]

Tuning Up Your ERP/Finance Infrastructure

To judge the ultimate immaturity of the “Cloud” ERP/Finance solution market, look no further than the broad success of vendors offering MDM (Master Data Management) solutions. Ironically, one of the perennial leaders in the space is one of the biggest purveyors of “you only need one” ERP/Finance solutions talking out the other side of their mouth—the 800-pound gorilla that is SAP—calling into constant question whether there can ever be a single, central solution to any company’s ERP/Finance needs. This actually makes perfect sense: Even within a unicorn single-instance ERP/Finance implementation, there will always be utility in matching incoming and outcoming transactions/messages to the proverbial “Golden Record”—to/from suppliers and customers who so often represent the true source of the information contained therein. (How many times has […]
