Deploying a performance management
system is a powerful catalyst for increasing
employee and organizational performance.
If not handled properly, however, organizations
risk creating unnecessary administrative work
which can diminish some of the benefits. A key
challenge is to balance the tension between
creating a fair and consistent evaluation
process across the organization and measuring
employee performance based on individual
needs. What best practices should you follow to
help strike the right balance? How have other
leading organizations designed effective review
forms and processes?
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.

Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy.
One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware.

Data security is a top concern these days. In a world of privacy regulation, intellectual property theft, and cybercrime, ensuring data security and protecting sensitive enterprise data is crucial.
Only a data masking solution can secure vital data and enable outsourcing, third-party analysis, and cloud deployments. But more often than not, masking projects fail. Some of the best data masking tools bottleneck processes and once masked, data is hard to move and manage across the application development lifecycle.

E-learning is already known to be the most efficient and cost effective way to deliver training to a workforce. However, the best way to truly prepare employees for meeting organisational objectives is to focus the training on three major areas of skill development. Using a learning solution that is capable of delivering optimal training on each type of skill and checking for comprehension by examining the outcomes from other HR processes will drive performance within the company as employees develop their soft, functional and compliancebased skills.
What you see isn’t always what you get with HR, talent, and learning software. Did you know that, even with the rigour frequently put into selection, two-thirds of HR software projects fail to produce at least half of the expected benefits? Or how about that a recent research project from Clarkson University determined that there was no link between HR software and HR’s ability to be more strategic? Even though HR technology is often sold as “best practices in a box,” looks can be deceiving. To avoid being duped by pretty demos of software with no substance and find a partner that can meet the hidden complexities that exist in your unique processes, you need to ask the right questions.

The mobile-cloud era is here. It is not merely about delivering apps; it is about simplifying processes so you can accomplish more. The mobile-cloud era is redefining productivity by enabling workflows through the key foundations of identity and contextual experiences, mobile collaboration, united endpoint management and security, and windows apps and desktops.
Today people work primarily from mobile sources and expect a strikingly continuous experience across all their devices, regardless of which device they select to best accomplish any given task. Once access is established, organizations are looking to transform processes to mobile so they can increase efficiency and workflows for end users, thereby driving productivity to the next level.
