Ace Hardware Enables Improved Employee Investment Decisions With Infor

Infor Total Rewards Delivers Consolidated Benefits Access

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 -- Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Ace Hardware has successfully implemented Total Rewards, a module of Infor Enwisen HR Service Delivery. Through this application, employees at Ace Hardware's Corporate Headquarters and 14 distribution centers now have consolidated access to information such as benefits packages, profit sharing plans and salary increases from any location.

News Points

  • Ace Hardware originally selected the module because of its ease-of-use and Infor's proven expertise in Human Capital Management.
  • Ace Hardware employees previously used multiple portals to view information on benefits. Infor Total Rewards now presents data on everything from incentive plans to healthcare options in a more user-friendly format so employees are aware of the overall compensation they receive.
  • The module provides employees with enhanced understanding, clarity and insight into retirement savings so they can make better, more informed decisions about how to utilize their earnings.
  • Infor Total Rewards allows the human resources department to present complete packages to prospects when hiring new employees. These overviews outline each part of their offer in addition to base salary in an organized way, helping Ace Hardware to be more competitive when seeking top talent.
  • Managers can use Infor Total Rewards during merit or salary reviews to outline compensation employees receive in addition to their base salary, promoting greater understanding by painting a complete picture of their earnings.
  • Because Infor Total Rewards is built with flexible dynamic coding, Ace Hardware can more easily make changes to compensation and benefits, as well as customize the module to display particular data sets on an individual user basis.

Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
The level of trust we have with individuals, businesses, and technology affects our lives daily. This is important to remember when discussing new technologies. For example, our level of trust is a critical factor when evaluating a new technology as a potential solution for providing business value. Given the importance of trust, imagine one's reaction upon hearing that blockchain is a "trustless trust" system. On the surface, that does sound like an oxymoron. This paper discusses how "trustless trust" applies to blockchain. It will discuss the various consensus algorithms used to provide that trust, including the benefits and challenges of each. Key use case patterns will be provided as examples and what the impact of the tradeoffs between consensus algorithms.
Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. PJ Hough, Citrix Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, discusses improving personal productivity with an evolved approach supporting modern workstyles and simplifying IT complexities to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time, on any device.
