According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Office 365 is Microsoft’s most strategic API. But to realize
the potential of this business collaboration platform, Microsoft and its partners have to convince
business and IT leaders that it offers levels of security, privacy, and compliance that are equal to or
higher than those of their existing on-premise solutions. Even though a high percentage of enterprises
are adopting cloud storage and compute within their businesses, the adoption of cloud-based content
and collaboration products is by no means universal. Concerns relating to governance, risk, and
compliance with regard to cloud services are understandable, but it is not unusual to find them

Over the past decade, talent management initiatives have become a critical priority for organizations. While CEOs see the business value of talent management— typically talent acquisition, learning, performance, talent mobility, compensation, and analytics—some organizations have found it challenging to quantify the business impact or return on such investments. If you are looking for help in building a talent management business case, this overview was created for you.
Over the past decade, talent management initiatives have become a critical priority for organizations. In 2016, KPMG found that 99 percent of CEOs reported they’ve taken action to develop existing or future talent.1 The same study also found that nearly half of CEOs expected their companies to be transformed into a significantly different entity within the next three years. This is because since 2000, 52% of companies in the Fortune 500 have gone bankrupt, been acquired, or ceased to exist.3 To remain competitive in our disruptive, digital age, this type of business transformation has become necessary. Achieving these huge business transformation feats is not for the faint of heart and requires robust organizational change and talent management.
Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later. Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.

If it's everyone's job to enable your sales team, it's no one's job. This study highlights the lack of a consistent definition for the sales enablement function, and the importance of this role in organizations today to bridge the disconnect between marketing and sales goals.
Two dominant trends are potentially reshaping the role of the HR function in the corporate world. The first relates to the rapid growth of the knowledge economy. In this environment, a committed, appropriately skilled and prudently deployed workforce is critical in order to develop new products and outstrip the competition. Second, many administrative functions that were formerly handled by HR departments, such as payroll and pensions, have now been farmed out to third parties. Indeed, research reveals that more than two-thirds of companies outsource a portion of their HR functions. This report by the Economist Intelligence Unit investigates whether the HR function is forging a close and robust relationship with the CEO. It also explores the nature of these working relationships, how they have been affected by the economic downturn and how they vary across industries and regions.
Being responsible for one-third of a business’ success already puts HR in a critical role. But it’s not just about finding the best people—it’s about finding the best people, at the lowest cost, with the lowest possible attrition and the best possible performance. And it’s about guiding your executive team to the right decisions using the language they understand best: numbers. Talent management—covering everything from recruiting and compensation to ongoing education and retention—has traditionally been managed in silos, with a series of disparate systems and disconnected processes and reports. In today’s data-driven world, CEOs demand more. This new study conducted by HR.com explores what’s working for organizations today and the biggest gaps to fill.
In a recent survey of CEOs by the consulting firm PWC, over half of the executives surveyed said, “lack of talent meant they either cancelled/delayed a strategic initiative, were unable to pursue a market opportunity, or could not innovate effectively.” A talent audit can help your organization avoid those issues and ensure that you have the right talents in the right places at the right times. Today and tomorrow.
