Have You Outgrown Your Accounting System?: Stepping Up to Cloud Computing & FinancialForce.com


No matter the size of your company, every business is challenged by organizational, technological, and economic growth. The stages of a company’s maturity are fairly well defined—from start-up and small businesses to midsize businesses and multinationals. But it’s not always clear when a company moves from one stage to the next, and what steps need to be taken to support that growth.

There comes a point when a company needs more than an entry-level bookkeeping system. Companies that are well established need a business system that supports the full range of its activities. It needs to reinforce how the business operates in practice rather than limiting it to the narrow confines of a conventional bookkeeping or accounting package.

This white paper describes the telltale signs that a company is ready to move on from software that covers basic accounting requirements to the next level—a progressive business system that can sustain growth for years to come. You’ll learn what to expect from such a system, and how business can change for the better.

The Big Picture: A Comprehensive Approach to Talent Management


Talent management is an ever-evolving challenge for HR professionals. Acquiring the best talent from the largest candidate pool in history is a difficult task, and competition is fierce, while the traditional performance review cycle is no longer adequate for evaluating the roles and needs of employees. Managers must ensure that not only are they able to find the right individual for the job, but that they are also proactively retaining, engaging, and preparing top performers for leadership roles.

Meanwhile, talent demographics are changing dramatically. In 2015, members of Gen Y, or “millennials”, will outnumber baby boomers in the workplace for the first time. Generation Y employees thrive under adaptive talent management that utilizes social collaboration and recent technological advances, something that talent tactics of the past may not be adapted to.

Talent management is thus more complicated than ever, and it’s no wonder HR professionals need help to find the right people with the right skills at the right time and keep them engaged. Talent management systems can help HR professionals create and sustain a competitive advantage. This white paper looks at some factors for talent management success in today’s challenging talent landscape, including how talent solutions can leverage business intelligence and analytics to create and sustain a competitive advantage.
