Analytics and “Big Data” continue to be a hot topic, and this year’s SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG Annual Conference on May 14-16, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, will feature demo theater presentations, education sessions, and microforums that will allow you to dive deep into SAP’s strategy and solutions for workforce analytics and planning on the cloud and on-premise.

Many organizations are successfully using workforce analytics to support business decisions and drive business strategy and results.  At the same time, there are many more HR organizations struggling to get a start, or make progress, in leveraging analytics and Big Data to get a clear picture of the dynamics and composition of their workforce in order to improve and expedite the quality and speed of business decisions. Many of these conference sessions are designed to provide you with a practical understanding of how analytics can help to build credibility for the HR function, and position HR as an agent of impact.

This year’s events showcase a broad range of solutions, from rapid deployment solutions offered on-premise based on a foundation of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) and SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) for HR, to the very mature and leading solutions, Workforce Analytics and Workforce Planning, offered on the cloud from SuccessFactors, an SAP company.  You’ll be very impressed with the wealth of content and best-practices delivered out of the box with these solutions.

Featured Sessions

See below for a list of sessions covering workforce planning and analytics – note that Education Sessions are offered through ASUG, and the others via SAPPHIRE NOW.

For a great customer story, make sure to attend the Theater Presentation on “Transform Workforce Data into Insight with Cloud Workforce Analytics” (session 35496).  Florida Blue is a long-time customer of SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics (back to Infohrm days) and Dawn Pickett will discuss their analytics journey, how they’re using the solution, and the value they’re getting from it.

If you have the time,  connect with Peter Howes (Thought Leader, Workforce Planning and Analytics, founder Infohrm), Tony Ashton (VP, SuccessFactors Workforce Planning and Analytics), Jean-Bernard Rolland (VP HR Line of Business Solution Management, Twitter: @watchthewave) and draw from their insight and experiences, or stop by for a demo of the solutions.

We hope to see you soon in Orlando!
