The ASUG Experience for Human Resources & Payroll is coming to Toronto Oct. 16–18. As the communications chair for ASUG Ontario, I look forward to welcoming you to North America’s fourth largest and fastest growing market for tech workers when you join us in Toronto this fall.
All of us are on a journey with dreams of making positive impacts in life. Throughout the journey, there will be a mixture of cheers of happiness and tears of disappointment. How we navigate through all of that, while helping each other along the way, will lead to a better experience on that journey.
Many businesses are moving and operating some, even a majority, of their corporate infrastructure in the cloud. According to the analysts at Gartner, “by 2020, a corporate ‘no-cloud’ policy will be as rare as a ‘no-internet’ policy is today.”
Substantial benefits of cloud migration include reduced IT costs, improved service quality, and enhanced system performance. So, it makes sense that corporate encouragement for SAP cloud migration will only continue to grow.

The role of IS/IT is not about successfully delivering system projects, it’s about ensuring the adoption of sustainable solutions. Let that sit with you for a minute while I first explain what I mean by sustainable solutions, and then I’ll dive into how and why it’s important.

In my first post in this educational series on AIOps, I defined AIOps as a category of cloud-based software systems that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to automate and transform IT operations. I also defined the key benefits. In my most recent post, I gave you four key business drivers for investing in AIOps initiatives.
Before we go any further, I think this would be a good time to address the potential elephant in the room for end users of AIOps. Members of the BASIS team and Level 2 support community may well be..
In my role as CIO of Johnsonville, I am analyzing indirect access, the impact of digital access licensing, and the pros and cons of adopting the new licensing model. I have committed to documenting that process and sharing insights with you in a series of blog posts. In the first post, I provided some background and laid out Johnsonville’s high-level approach to the process. In this post, I will cover the initial steps we took to get an understanding of our indirect access exposure and an estimate of documents required to address that exposure..
ASUG conducts research year-round to help our members better understand what their peers are thinking, planning, and doing in various industries and functions. In one of our recent studies on enterprise information management (EIM), ASUG looked at two key areas that require an EIM strategy: data and documents.
Once again, ASUG is joining with SAP to provide technology-based education for SAP TechEd Las Vegas 2019. For the fifteenth year in a row, ASUG will provide its customer volunteer-driven content, which includes real-world insights from other SAP customers and partners just like you.
AIOps is a category of cloud-based software systems that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to automate and transform IT operations. In my first post in this series on AIOps, I discussed the specific benefits of integrating this technology into your SAP operations and BASIS administration processes to shrink the time and effort required to detect, understand, and resolve incidents. I suggested that with AIOps, you will not only crush your incident mean time to resolution (MTTR) metrics, but eliminate frustrating routine..
ASUG’s research team generates insights year-round to help ASUG members compare their perspectives and strategies with their peers. ASUG has spent time examining topics related to human resources and payroll functions since 2018. Out of that research, several themes have emerged from what our participants had to say—including some predictions around how the workplace will change.
