Your business is complex. Big data promises to manage this complexity to make better decisions. But the technology services that run your business are also complex. Many are too complex to manage easily, fueling more complexity, delays, and downtime. Forrester predicts this will inevitably get worse. To combat this onslaught, you can no longer just accelerate current practices or rely on human intelligence. You need machines to analyze conditions to invoke the appropriate actions. These actions themselves can be automated. To perform adaptive, full-service automation, you need IT analytics, a disruption to your
existing monitoring and management strategy.
If your business relies on an owner or other employee to manage HR tasks, rather than employing a certified, dedicated HR expert, you might be experiencing some unforeseen risks, including wasted time and decreased morale. Check out the infographic to learn more about the risks of ad hoc HR management, as well as what you can do to free your company from this burden so you can focus on what you do best.
Michael Parrish Dudell, bestselling author and one of nation’s leading Millennial voices, explains why now, more than ever, is the time for businesses to anticipate the rapidly evolving expectations of the new workforce or face the very real threat of irrelevance.

Within the next three years, Millennials will make up the majority of the workforce
By 2025, they will comprise a whopping 75% of workers
In the last five years, 87 percent of Millennials took on management roles—up 75% from the five years prior
If you don’t know the diverse landscape of personal and family leaves that states allow, you run the risk — and could face the potential consequences — of noncompliance, reduced productivity, and employee disengagement.

Enterprise Workload Management gets the right work to the right person at the right time, eliminating the outdated manual distribution of work model.
Enterprise Workload Management finally gives organizations the ability to correlate the work that customer service interactions create in the front office -- with the best resource within the organization required to complete that work in the back office.
Enterprise Workload Management ensures that the highest priority work is being handled by the right resource, and gives managers real-time visibility into when the work will be completed, as well as reports that show the outcomes of the work. Customers get notified when an order or application is processed instead of waiting to hear or having to repeated call back. Employees get specific coaching and training plans based on the results of their work.
