Since the beginning of 2017, I have addressed till date in excess of 100 CHRO enquiries from across the globe – ranging from the west coast of the US to the east coast of Australia and everything in between. One recurrent theme which stands out from all of these enquiries is the growing need for HR Analytics & richer, timely, actionable reports.
What is the event about?
We are experiencing unprecedented change and disruption in the industry today. Business and technology paradigms are changing at a pace that has never before been seen and the innovative use of technology to adapt to these changes is becoming the only way forward.
To address this change, Dimension Data is organising the Leadership Connect, a gathering aimed at bringing together CxOs involved in Digital Transformation journeys.
Fireside Chat Topic: Bringing Transformation Home
Greyhound Research’s Chief Analyst & CEO, Sanchit Vir Gogia (SVG), will be at the event to share insights on Digital Transformation from across the globe and in the region. Separately, SVG will chair a fireside chat session (participants below) on how can CxOs tailor Digital Transformation for their respective organisations.

Below are excerpts of a recent Keynote by Sanchit Vir Gogia on the topic: Who Owns Digital Transformation?
In today’s time, while leading with Digital is evident, who owns this transformation still remains a bone of contention. This journey needs to be co-owned by those who will be impacted first – the CXOs. Having said that, the starting point of this journey is an understanding of why this matters to CXOs.
For decades, Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) have automated processes in a bid to improve employee performance.
However, they continue to search for better ways to motivate employees simply because employee engagement and organisational success is so interlinked. It’s no surprise, then, that the need to align their teams to organisational goals and be counted as a strategic advisor to the management continue to be some of the long-standing struggles of CHROs.
Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) are starting to pilot the use of bots in HR-related functions.
In a recent research note we highlighted a key trend about Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) piloting and implementing Workforce Empowerment Systems (WES) to win the war for talent. This trend was noted in our recent Greyhound Research study titled Global CHRO Priorities 2016, where we spoke to 750+ CHROs from across the globe.
Need for HR analytics and in-depth timely reports is starting to drive enterprises to modernise existing or adopt new HR-related solutions.
On 7 April 2016, as part of the Greyhound Research Analyst team, we had the opportunity to attend the Oracle CloudWorld 2016 in Mumbai, India. At the event we met some of Oracle’s global executives who highlighted the growing demand for MobileFirst, CloudFirst business applications.
It’s not often that one comes across a young, new-age Research & Advisory firm which does not believe in pay-to-play, but dares to say things as they are.
Last week I was with posed a question for the nth time – probably the 50th time since launching Greyhound Research 3 years ago – and it prompted me to formally pen down my thoughts. This question is not new for me and I sort of expect it with those who are yet to get acquainted with our ethos:
“Like your peers, why don’t you not have reports that benchmark vendors?”
The correlation between employee engagement and organisational success is a no-brainer. Over decades while Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) have automated processes that translate to improved employee performance, they continue to search better ways to motivate employees. The need to align their team to organisational goals and be counted as a strategic advisor to the management continue to be some of the long standing struggles of CHROs.
