Well I could come up with a lot more, but this would be a very long blog post and you wouldn’t read it. So here are my top four:

Having had a few weeks back from the OHUG Global Conference in Las Vegas, we thought it worthwhile for a short wrap up blog post. It was a really interesting event from a number of angles. Before getting into that I wanted to say how hot it was in Las Vegas this year!

The Talemetry team is in overdrive working hard to prepare for the upcoming HCM @ OpenWorld event in San Francisco September 22-26. This is the first year of a dedicated focus on Oracle HCM at the OpenWorld event, and yet another sign of the growing importance Oracle sees in their HCM offerings.
The dust is finally settling following this year’s OHUG annual conference in Dallas. As it turns out, that timeworn maxim about everything being bigger in Texas is true - attendance was up, vendor participation increased, and there were no shortage of waistline busting barbecues.
Even in the sweltering heat of summer in the Lone Star State, it wasn't difficult for attendees to see where Oracle sees the future of their human capital systems and services. As the keynote presentations by Chris Leone, SVP & GM Oracle/Taleo HCM & TM or Gretchen Alarcon showed, Oracle HCM is moving to keep up with emerging trends and best practices in the industry. And, when it comes to the business of talent management, that future is inexorably intertwined with mobile recruiting, social recruiting and big data.
It seems counterintuitive to take a step back and challenge the basics of innovation, but after a whirlwind of conferences these past couple of weeks, it seems apropos to pause and ask: when did HR and recruiting innovation become so, well, stale? The word ‘innovation’ gets bandied about so much in the HR and recruiting space it has become, ironically, a tired cliché. But just like the word ‘influence,’ this is one subjective term that, objectively, really can’t be defined (at least by consensus), much less measured.
In his keynote presentation at the 2012 HR Tech Europe Conference in Amsterdam, Across Technology CEO Peter Hinnson discussed the concept of “the new normal,” and the impact of the “consumerization of technology” on the constantly evolving world of work.
While the jury’s still out if “consumerization” is an actual word (although dictionaries can’t possibly keep pace with Moore’s Law, after all), it was a recurring theme throughout the conference – and the industry dialogue in general.
As HR Tech 2012 winds down following another great show, thousands of attendees and exhibitors like myself are catching flights and heading home after spending the last few days learning, networking, giving and receiving demos, and attending one too many late night event parties.
I thought I’d share my top 3 takeaways and observations as I reflect back on the last few days.
On October 7, the fifth iteration of the HREvolution un-conference will take place at the McCormick Place Conference Center in Chicago as a prelude to the Annual HR Technology Conference. The HREvolution event allows all constituencies connected to human resources to come together and discuss the future of HR.
Highlights include “Data Driven Employer Branding” with John Sumser, “Future of Work and HR to 2030” with Alexandra Levit, and “60 Minutes to a Better Candidate Experience” with Gerry Crispin and Elaine Orler
Of particular note is the session, “What the CEO Wants,” featuring Mike Psenka, President and CEO of eThority, and Jade Bourelle, CEO of Talemetry, and moderated by Dr. Matthew Stollak, Associate Professor of Business Administration at St. Norbert College.
I attended my first HR Technology Conference in Chicago in 2010. After a decade in the business intelligence market, I'd been to a fair number of technology events and expositions over the course of my career.
But what really struck me at that first HR Technology Conference was the breadth and depth of exhibitors, ranging from the global enterprise suite players to specialist HR vendors and a significant number of new, niche vendors whose offerings seemed to be jumping on the ever-shifting "latest and greatest" bandwagon.
