Talent Analytics: Emerging Themes and Successful Practices: William A. Schiemann, Ph.D., GPHR, and CEO Metrus Group
May 17, 2017 7:30 AM

There is increasing interest today in using workforce analytics to make decisions and allocate resources in organizations. In the recent Rise of HR project, spearheaded by Dave Ulrich, William Schiemann and Libby Sartain, 73 global HR thought leaders identified the use of information and analytics as one of seven key requirements for HR to be successful today and tomorrow. Issues range from evidence-based mindsets to asking the right questions to using the right analytic tools. Today, this nascent competency is evolving rapidly, but often with many avoidable false starts and challenges. For example, Big Data has taken on a life of its own, often with disappointing results. Employee surveys continue to be used in non-strategic ways that often do not lead to better decisions, higher engagement, stronger leader competencies or better resource allocation. Bill will talk about the key issues to consider, share examples of good and bad practices, provide a list of key questions, and demonstrate the potential power of using information more strategically.

Time: 7:30am-10:00am
Location: Radisson Hotel Valley Forge 1160 1st Ave, King of Prussia, PA 19406

JULIA: An Exciting New Programming Language for HPC, Analytics, and Much More, NJIT, Guttenberg Information Technology Center, Room 3710
May 17, 2017 8:45 AM

Julia (Http://julialang.org) is a high level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments (e.g. Matlab). It provides a sophisticated compiler, distributed parallel execution, numerical accuracy, and an extensive mathematical function library. Julia’s base library, largely written in Julia itself, also integrates mature, best-of-breed open source C and Fortran libraries for linear algebra, random number generation, signal processing, and string processing. Julia can be run on a laptop or a cluster.
