Sessions I cannot wait to attend in HR2013 Amsterdam

The countdown has begun for HR2013 conference which is to be held in Amsterdam on 11-13 June 2013. As most of the attendees, I am very much engaged in building my agenda nowadays. All of the sessions are attractive but some of them draw my attention more. In this blog, I would like to share the sessions I am excited about the most:

I am an HR Professional; but at the same time a BI Professional on an equal basis. So, what draws my attention the most in HR 2013 Amsterdam conference are the sessions dealing with HR Analytics. Especially the session “How to transform HR data into HR intelligence for more informed decision making” is one of the sessions I can’t wait to attend. In this session, the presenter is going to talk about HR KPIs, how there are to be measured, and how HR intelligence is to be visualized and utilized. Briefly, the session will emphasize the transformation of SAP ECC data into “intellectual” analytics data.

Another very interesting session on HR Analytics is “SAP’s strategic roadmap for SAP and SuccessFactors analytics solutions: Lessons for harnessing current and upcoming functionality for maximum benefit” . By attending this session, I hope to gain an understanding of the latest enhancements for SAP ERP HCM and SuccessFactors analytics as well as for BI functionality on SAP HCM.

“A guide to HR reports and dashboards that support strategic decision making” is also another attractive session for HR analytic professionals. The presenter will share ideas on how HR dashboards should be implemented in order to support the upper management with the most accurate and relevant HR data for effective decision making.

“Guidelines and best practices for deploying ESS and MSS on mobile devices” is a session by Jeremy Masters, one of the most well-known SAP HR
gurus. Jeremy will be demonstrating his experience on how to utilize the latest technological improvements to deploy self-service applications on mobile devices as well as which applications are more effectively used on the mobile platform.

Martin Gillet is the rockstar of SAP HCM, as I always call him. So attending SAP HR conference and not listening to Martin’s session would be unimaginable. In “An expert shares undocumented guidelines for setting up standard SAP ERP HCM workflows” Martin will share his experience on explaining the ways to make most out of standard HR workflows.  A step-by-step guide for enabling standard workflows and a house-keeping checklist to ensure quality are bonus take-home materials from this interesting session.

If you are not a listener type of person, you may find SAP Mentor Luke Marson’s interactive session interesting. In session “SuccessFactors debunked: Lessons from the trenches” peers will be sharing their experience on SuccessFactors implementation. It is for sure that you won’t be bored!

And last but not the least, there is the panel discussion: “The future of SAP ERP HCM – Predictions from the experts“. HCM gurus and my Mentor friend  Martin Gillet will be the moderator and Prashanth Padmanabhan will be the panelist. They will be sharing the information on where SAP HCM is going and what will the hot topics be for the upcoming years. For the ones passionate about SAP HCM, this is a not-to-be missed panel.

Above are some of the sessions I am planning to attend in #HR2013 –my agenda is full of course, but I didn’t want to bore you with the full list-. I hope you will attend some of these too so we can meet in person. Hope to see you in Ams!
