The ongoing evolution towards Cloud In 2012, the Human Resources sector was one of the largest consumers of SaaS solutions, in particular with the talent management segment. 2 The trend towards Cloud HR solutions will continue to expand in 2014. HR Challenges, Pitfalls & Benefits Moving Successfully HR to the Cloud Is your organization ready to undergo the challenges and the emergence of new roles, new ways of thinking and working?

All rights reserved. 3 Challenges you need to address 1 New ways of thinking and working 2 Organizational changes & support 3 Speed of deployment 4 Emergence of new roles When considering to implement a cloud based HR solution in your organization, you need to address a couple of challenges. Each challenges is unique and differs from traditional ERP implementations.
  4. 4. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. Challenge #1 Rethink Change Management. It’s essential to ensure a successful transition to a new platform. •Ready for standardization? • From customized to standardized • Degree of personalization based on existing business needs and processes does no longer exist with Cloud solutions. •Processes and operational methods must be adapted to the given platform • And not reverse  acculturation to the Cloud is far more important. 4 New ways of thinking and working
  5. 5. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. Challenge #2 Most Cloud solutions contain a self-service component which broadens the employee scope. •Can you ensure the support of employees? • The success of the Cloud strongly depends on how employees embrace the new platform and the related new processes. • Support your employees with clear communication and innovative & interactive training. •Do you have the buy-in of managers and employees? Get it first! • The manager buy-in is needed to motivate teams. • Make managers aware of the reasons for the changes, to understand their pivotale role. Explain the how’s and why’s. 5 Organizational changes & support
  6. 6. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. Challenge #3 The speed at which the Cloud can be deployed is one of the principal benefits, compared to a traditionnel ERP solution. The system might be ready before the people! •Change management activities need to be well-prepared in advance of the Go-Life date. •Is your project team yet operational? Are the business needs clear? Do you know what the platform is able to do or not do? •Turnaround times are very short and can become a major risk. Is your organization familiarized with the specifics? • For the administrator • For the end user 6 Speed of deployment
  7. 7. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. Challenge #4 Cloud implementations require good planning and clear definition of new roles and responsabilities. •Coordination of the different stakeholders and proper organization are a major challenge. •Re-balance the role of HR and IT. • Role of HR is growing: support in choice of implementation and adequate solution. • Role of IT is focused on the integration of new platforms and rest of the application portfolio •Manage the relationship with your Cloud Partner. •Create a Cloud Coordinator role: deployment of SaaS creates new activities, specific position dedicated to the Cloud. 7 Emergence of new roles
  8. 8. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. What typically goes wrong in Cloud projects? 8 When ignoring the typical Cloud challenges in the preparation phase, you will end up with a higher project cost, longer implementation time and inaccurate use of the new HR environment. Typical failures can be categorized as follows: 1 Failure to effectively prepare and manage the change (acculturation) 2 Failure to define, validate, and support data 3 Failure to understand and properly plan 4 Failure on having buy-in from the organization, managers & employees 5 Failure on the level of readiness from the project team
  9. 9. NGA Human Resources confidential. All rights reserved. Why you should opt for Cloud? 9 #1 - Quick deployment and dramatically reduced maintenance costs Standardized solutions have a turnkey characteristic. Deployment time decreases from years to months. #2 - Cost savings generated due to the direct relationship with the Cloud vendor #3 – Increased speed to unforeseen events #4 – Easy to get the latest and greatest updates Benefits of Cloud Any business changes that may arise unexpectedly can be handled quickly because operations are handled by the cloud vendors.
