The Future Of Candidate Tracking And New Hire Onboarding

Annually, $400 Billion are being spent on recruiting services and systems and even then, businesses are struggling to find the right talent, interested candidates are not finding their dream jobs, and star talent are still stuck in a job which they are not interested in doing. One of the main reasons behind these frustrations amongst the hiring managers, recruiters, and candidates is the use of outdated systems like emails and spreadsheets for hiring.

One of the crucial aspects, which are often overlooked in the recruitment process, is the candidate’s application experience. In the bigger picture, a positive candidate experience can play a significant role in boosting the organization’s reputation and attract a larger pool of qualified applicants. Taking shorter time to make hiring decisions also helps in catching the top talent before they accept another offer.

5 Myths Vs Facts of Governance, Risk and Compliance

As disruptive technology changes the way businesses operate and communicate internally and externally, companies are facing increasing complexity of governance, compliance and risks. The need for a high degree of agility and transparency in the GRC program is imperative today. But organizations usually respond in a piecemeal way to these new pressures as these compete with the management’s time and available resources. The consummation of IT is also creating a bigger challenge for organizations to establish a comprehensive GRC program with proper governance structure enterprise-wide. The result is a haphazard collage of process monitoring and reporting tools that potentially increases costs and risks.

Here are 5 myths that add mystery to the effective implementation of a GRC program with 5 supporting facts that work:

How Does IT Operations Management Help Enterprise IT?

Rapid change is the new constant with today’s Enterprises. There is a continuous shift in the technology landscape and the demands of the customers coupled with Enterprises wanting to stay competitive. This changing, fluid environment results in concurrent changes with IT infrastructure. Enterprises today are turning to IT Operations Management to bring order to this complex situation.

The Paradigm Shift in Enterprise IT

Technology is central to the ability of the Enterprise to respond to changes in the market and its customers and to execute its business plans. Today’s IT leaders are responsible for more than overseeing technology breakthroughs but are also integral to advising chief executives about the organization’s business strategy. Similarly, this has also meant that traditionally non-IT departments are also getting more involved in decisions that were earlier the purview of IT – for e.g. Choices regarding edge devices, cloud services and even security policies and plans. It’s clear that several factors are at work in making the IT infrastructure ever more complex and unmanageable.

Standardizing Business Processes on the Cloud Platform

The technology keeps moving forward, which makes it easier for the artists to tell their stories and paint the pictures they want.” – George Lucas

Cloud computing is spreading through the IT world like wildfire, spearheading companies to grow fast in the cloud platform and development space.
No doubt, a handful of big companies are being dominated by this technology for solving their complicated and expensive business solutions. Grown as a full fledged enterprise, the global cloud advisory and implementation services company ‘Alcor Solutions’ was incorporated in the year 2008, focusing on building strong competence on cutting edge cloud technologies and advising clients in implementing them.

The company has partnered with some of the industry’s leading cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) platform providers to bring cost effective, rapid implementation cloud solutions to their clients. Serving clients in multiple geographies including North America, Europe, Japan and India, the focus of the senior consultants at Alcor Solutions lies in providing advice to leading businesses on cloud platforms, architecture, enterprise service management and integrated IT service delivery. Alcor’s focus for future business operations covers Big Data, Application Performance Management, Risk & Compliance Solutions.

Delivering Cutting Edge Cloud Solutions
Cloud advisory and cloud technology services are at the core of everything at Alcor Solutions. Their cloud advisory services are based on a deep understanding of enterprise IT landscape and the importance of stable, secure and cost effective cloud architecture. Alcor consultants and technology teams work across Cloud Application, Cloud Advisory, Cloud Integration, Cloud Migration and Managed Services.

  • Platform Application Development

In conversation with Amit Singh (Senior Vice President)

  • Tell us something about how Alcor was set up?
    There are lot of traditional technological companies that provide application services or infrastructure services either in US or anywhere in the globe, but what we saw that there was no organization truly focused on managing the cloud and platform like SeviceNow, Azure or Salesforce. In terms of approach, we saw the traditional IT software company struggling to adjust to this new paradigm, where the need was more towards knowing the business, knowing process, know strategies and knowing adoption. We realized that a much more consolidated way needed to emerge from what we saw in the market place. There was no central leader too. Then we decided to focus on cloud services and cloud solutions. So that being our starting point, our central theme is management of the customer’s business on the cloud.
  • You are selling the management system specifically for managing the cloud environment?
    Our expertise is to create a cloud based architecture for traditional business systems and help them to migrate to the cloud architecture. Our work involves a lot of consulting, cloud strategy and that is our business.
  • What is the structure of the company and how exactly does it ensure file transferring, scheduling and monitoring?
    Our key practice is the Service Management Practice – look at how service delivery is done in an organization, how to capture all the data looking into all the IT services in the organization, how to build HR portals, how to build facility, etc. We use a software called ServiceNow for that purpose.Another practice of ours is Cloud Application and Integration- to move application for people on to the cloud and then build integration. We have partnered with a software company called MuleSoft and use their software to build connectors between applications on the cloud.Another key area of our practice is Security Incident Event Management – we work with multiple security companies and their software and provide solutions.
  • How popular are the Alcor apps that you have developed on the partnered cloud platform?
    The apps are gaining pretty rapid popularity because it’s based on platforms. And there are customers who have already invested into the platforms.
  • Who are your big clients and do shed light on target verticals?
    Our teams have worked with companies like Walmart, CisCo, parts of Toyota, Multiple Product Unions, Multiple Banks like Silicon Valley Bank. In terms of verticals, we want to focus on Insurances and Financial services, Technology & Manufacturing.
  • How does Alcor contribute to Hybrid IT solutions?
    Alcor helps in designing architecture and implement that software’s to create the Hybrid IT solution. We implement new service and that’s how we are different from traditional IT companies.
  • How efficiently do you think Alcor is positioned to tackle the challenges or cyber threats that a typical cloud based company faces?
    No company can ever be 100 percent hacker proof. There are two key solutions to it: One is being up to date with whatever is latest in the market in terms of managing security, monitoring solutions, parameter security and ethical hacking. The other part of solution is to prepare on how to respond by having a plan in case of data issues, etc.
  • Any plans of expanding the geographies of the company?
    We already have a significant presence in New Jersey and North East, Canada, Toronto regions. We are now planning to grow into the North East, Western nations and as well as South East zones.

5 Reasons to Service Map with ServiceNow ServiceWatch

Today, enterprises have a huge onus on them; that of delivering critical- IT enabled business services like email, supply chain systems, customer portals, and financial applications in a seamless way. A single impairment in a business service would potentially impact customer service, profitability and productivity. Now, every service is made of a complex set of interacting IT components that include physical and virtual servers, networks, databases, enterprise buses, assets, security loops and more. An outage in any of these directly impacts the delivery of the service.

Hence, an organization today needs a clear understanding of how services are affected by infrastructure issues. One needs to know and keep track of each and every infrastructure component that makes up a service. One needs to diagnose and resolve service impairments and outages quickly, flawlessly and on priority such that the business delivery is not affected. Today’s enterprise needs a service mapping tool that’s accurate, proactive, flexible, automated and simple – appropriately provided by ServiceNow ServiceWatch.

Here are five reasons to Service map with ServiceWatch: Read More
