Increasingly, today’s employees “workshift.” That means they work from anywhere, anytime. Furthermore, they and their supervisors now demand more control over managing and developing their careers.
These human capital management trends make the IHRIM 2012 HRMS Strategies Conference and Technology Expo, April 30-May 3, Chicago, with more than 58 educational conference and pre-conference sessions, such a marquee event for HR systems learning.
Citrix Senior Director of Global HRIS and Metrics Rich Berger agrees. “There’s no better place to meet leading HRIS providers than IHRIM,” he says. During the conference, Berger will present a compelling case study, “Manage Talent from Anywhere—Mobile and Cloud Come Together for Citrix.” In it, he will detail how Citrix implemented a robust talent management solution, helping a mobile workforce plan and track talent needs 24x7x365 by leveraging mobile devices (such as iPads) and remote access to corporate talent information, recruiting activities and other mobile apps—all from the cloud.
Expect Berger, a long-time user of HumanConcepts workforce visualization solutions, to drop by our booth (#810) during IHRIM. Learn from a master how combining application-driven software with established business processes and a cloud computing platform can transform a workforce while simultaneously delighting employees and managers.

Offers Secure, Cost-Efficient Access for Enterprises Adopting HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite SaaS Platform
SAUSALITO, CA—Feb. 17, 2012—HumanConcepts, developer of HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, has opened a new data centre to meet the growing demand by UK and EMEA-based customers for high-quality Software as a Service (SaaS) organizational planning solutions.
Housed in London, HumanConcepts’ new facility will allow European customers to access sensitive enterprise information quickly, cost efficiently and securely while avoiding the internet latency and data privacy challenges often posed by cloud computing solutions.
In 2011, HumanConcepts introduced HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, the next generation of its award-winning OrgPlus Enterprise platform, taking full advantage of the growing trend of moving corporate services to a web-based infrastructure, i.e., the cloud. Built to the highest industry standards for performance reliability, security and 24/7 availability, the Data Center strengthens HumanConcepts’ overall portfolio and marks the next step in its European development.
HumanConcepts CEO Martin Sacks said, “Our new data center underscores our growth and commitment to offering HumanConcepts’ European users advanced organizational planning solutions, able to satisfy complex business requirements.”
By adopting a SaaS implementation, new and current HumanConcepts customers realize considerable benefits. Quick to deploy, HumanConcepts’ web-based solution is easy to use and accessible from multiple channels, including web, enterprise portals and mobile devices. It is compatible with a wide range of browsers, including Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Firefox in both Windows and Mac OS environments.
“More and more of our users are looking to lower total cost of ownership,” said Sacks. “Our web-based services are ideal for them, requiring no upfront investment or capital expenditure. As many IT departments see staff numbers diminish, moving to a SaaS environment allows users to do more with less. Not only will our new data center provide higher performance, but it will guarantee that EMEA customers gain ultimate protection for their sensitive or mission-critical data in today’s cloud-based environment.”
