E-forms and workflow automation have caused a sea change in human resources and hiring processes. Businesses can now streamline and simplify the application and onboarding process, which is especially important for companies that are growing rapidly or hire seasonally. The combination of e-forms and workflow automation saves valuable time and resources while helping to ensure compliance and providing managers insight into the hiring process itself.

Email has become a symbol of disparity, even of siloed work, and many argue that it needs to disappear from the workplace, at least in large part. Email leads to cluttered environments and disjointed, indiscernible data that are difficult to track, manage or navigate. Likewise, emails get in the way of work. Organizations are bogged down by it. Unfortunately, email typically mean much less gets done, but email is not going anywhere soon so we need to find a way to work around it.

Life happens! Employees come and go and the market changes, leading employers to require different talents as well as eliminate positions. Layoffs, terminations, new hire onboarding, and benefits administration are all part of human resources professionals’ repertoire of duties they must manage.

I recently attended the largest event for human resource professionals, the annual SHRM conference held in Washington, D.C. While employee engagement, recruiting, talent retention and professional development were top themes at this conference, it was clear HR professionals were focused on improving efficiency by eliminating administrative work. Of course, in today’s mobile, “always-on” work culture, what business professional isn’t looking for ways to do things better, smarter and faster?

In both basketball and in business, there is a goal. For the past two seasons, my hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, aimed to bring an NBA title home and break the city’s 52-year losing streak since the Cleveland Browns won the NFL championship in 1964.

In what has become a continually developing saga, the recently reminted HP Inc. divested several business assets to enterprise information management firm OpenText, announcing the first batch in April and the second in June. Timing on the June deal coincided with a coolly received shift in HP’s channel inventory, but perhaps is even more interesting given the fact that HP Inc. pulled these assets over from HPE during the split. With HP Inc. and OpenText continuing to reshape (and dare I say, refine) I have to wonder just what this means for players in the market?

In this blog we highlight a client case history that demonstrates an important element of efficient records management workflow: document remediation (or document “repair”). The story concerns a major passenger rail service provider that wanted to streamline access to important engineering information stored in its relational database.

You’ve been to all of the conferences, slogged through the various webinars, and heard all of the promises about value-add services and software. You are likely even seeing some modest success by adding software and IT solutions to your offerings portfolio. But have you thought about whether Microsoft SharePoint should play a part in your future?

We hear so much about “big data” and unstructured data these days, and we automatically associate things like emails, texts, tweets, and audio clips to the unstructured data category. And as we are being reminded by the purveyors of the big data mining tools, it’s all about making sense of this huge mess of uncoordinated, anomalous data.
