Too irrelevant to the team leader.
Such are the complaints heard repeatedly about Performance Management and Engagement systems.
And these don’t even touch on the biggest problem of all: current systems produce a tidal wave of unreliable data. The ratings they yield are based on the notion that, with enough time and training, managers (and peers) can become reliable raters of other people’s skills and competencies. Sadly, that’s not true. A large body of research reveals:
61% of your manager’s rating of you is a reflection of the
manager, not of you. Your organization, apparently unaware of this, then persists on paying you, training you, and promoting you—and everyone else in the organization—based on these flawed ratings.
Application release automation (ARA) tools enable best practices in deploying and promoting applicationrelated artifacts, properties, configurations and even data across an application lifecycle in a safe, predictable and repeatable manner. Gartner reports that using an ARA tool is key to enabling DevOps and achieving continuous delivery.
Wikipedia also defines five dimensions of scalability that can apply to ARA tools:
• Administrative scalability
• Functional scalability
• Geographic scalability
• Load scalability
• Generational scalability
This white paper will explain how each of these criteria is relevant when choosing an ARA product that is capable of scaling along with the growth of your enterprise.

It’s true that webinars and webcasts are a great way to generate
leads, launch products and interact with prospects. Yet, when it
comes to attendance, less than half of those who register join
the online events. Meaning, regardless of how great the content
is in your webinar or webcast, it doesn’t have much meaning if
no one’s attending!
There are plenty of effective ways to promote your online event
and up your attendance rate. Some traditional ideas include
creating landing pages, promoting the event on your company’s
home page and sharing across social media channels. Here are
a few additional out-of-the-box ideas from Team GlobalMeet
that are simple and surprisingly effective ways to make sure you
not only drive awareness for your event but can also get people
excited to attend!
Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically
transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have
continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and
keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve. Originally
envisioned as an IT-centric tool for enterprise reporting, analytics today
has evolved into a business solution—empowering a range of users
across every line of business, including front-line employees, field
personnel, and executives.
The rise of self-service analytics over the past decade has played a key role in promoting a data-driven mindset
within every business function. However, this practice is limited to a skilled few. The vast majority of business
professionals lack the time, analytical skills, or inclination to conduct their own analyses, and fail to effectively use
