The end of Flash is nigh. 2020 is the year when Adobe finally discontinues support for its Flash plugin. That's honestly a good thing, but it may spell change for some outdated technology users (including older workforce management systems).
If the conversations we had at KronosWorks last month are any indication, interest in Kronos Workforce Dimension is growing. Over the course of two years since the platform's launch, Kronos has continued to build on the platform's offerings, including technology partner integrations and quality-of-life improvements.
Throughout this year's KronosWorks event, one of the biggest concerns we heard was what upgrade options are still on the table for businesses preparing to catch up. Even with all the buzz around Workforce Dimensions, it's worth reminding everyone that Kronos is also making huge strides with its other trusted offerings like Workforce Central.
The IBM iSeries servers (formerly AS/400) have long been trusted by mid-sized businesses for their heavy computing capabilities. Their endurance can largely be attributed to IBM's support for past compatibility with each new version of the software and operating system they release.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's KronosWorks another special experience. Connecting with so many like-minded professionals is the reason we look forward to this event every year. Changing workforce management systems is no small task, but there comes a time when sticking to an outdated or ill-fitting workforce management solution does more harm than good.
