Pilat HR Solutions to Present Webinar on the Risks of Cloud-Based HCM Solutions

Industry Experts to Highlight the Overlooked Dangers as More Companies Embrace the Cloud

WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - Clinton Wingrove, executive vice president and principal consultant of Pilat HR Solutions, the premier provider of human capital management technology and professional services, will lead a webinar that addresses the overlooked risks to human capital management (HCM) that organizations are often unprepared for as they embrace cloud-based solutions. Wingrove will deliver the webinar, titled "Flying through the HCM Cloud is Not Risk Free!" on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. GMT, 10:00 a.m. EDT and 7:00 a.m. PDT.

Organizations that move their HCM operations to the cloud by embracing a single integrated solution are likely to see many benefits. But as more organizations follow suit, there are certain disadvantages to this group mentality. During this complimentary webinar, Wingrove and Ryan Tweedie, co-founder and managing partner of Sapien, a provider of on-demand HRMS and HCM software solutions, will discuss the risks organizations face as they join their competitors in implementing cloud technology.

Attendees of the webinar will learn about the issues organizations tend to overlook when implementing an integrated cloud-based solution, such as what they are giving up when moving to the cloud and whether or not the product they choose, or even the vendor, will be around tomorrow. Additionally, the tools that vendors provide may allow full customization of the user experience but might not be best-fit for all organizations and too many companies accept them "as is."

"As organizations try to keep up with their competitors, many follow the latest industry trend such as implementing a cloud-based HCM solution," said Wingrove. "But how does doing what others are doing address your company's specific requirements and make you more competitive? During this webinar, we'll explain the key aspects that all organizations should consider before implementing a cloud-based solution -- and offer an alternative solution that most people don't know about."
