Best of Breed Project
  • Two goals:
    • Compare a wide variety of HRIS products
    • Collect and share this information in a database
  • Each individual will collect information on several products
  • Each group will prepare a report on the “best of breed” within a product category
where to get information
Where to get information?
  • Start with the HRIS product directories
    • in your course pack
    • on the web
  • Contact vendors via phone or email
    • Get all the info they will send
    • Get demo versions if possible
  • Each student should be able to do at least 5
this database was created as an lir828 term project
This database was created as an LIR828 term project
  • The HRIS Product Database was created by Aggie Tran, Kim Johansen and Akio Tsuchida
  • It is a good example of what you could accomplish as an LIR828 term project
    • But don’t expect to do a web interface unless you already know how -- it can be a lot of work!
definitions of fields
Definitions of fields
  • Some are self-explanatory (e.g., product name)
  • Product Function: an overall description of what the product does (NOT an evaluation of how well it does it)
  • Starting Price: a description (not necessarily a number) that says what the least cost version of the product would be
more fields
More fields
  • Demo available? Is demo software available from the vendor (Yes or no)
  • Intranet enabled? Does the product have a WWW interface? (Yes or no)
  • Employee size: Is there a size range that is most appropriate for this product?
    • Note that for many products, this is irrelevant, because they do not store employee records
editorial research fields
Editorial/research fields
  • Student Editor: enter your name here (so you get credit for your work)
  • Date of editing: when did you enter the data?
  • Research source(s): List all of the sources you used: product brochures, corporate web site, product reviews, etc.
entering product functions
Entering product functions
  • Product functions will be used to search and select records from the database
  • Choose functions from the combo box
    • If you need to add a function, go to table maintenance
  • Describe how the product performs each function that you enter. The default is “contact vendor for details”
client server platforms are tricky
Client/server platforms are tricky

Client OS Platform

e.g., Win95, Mac OS

Server OS Platform

e.g., WinNT, Unix, AS/400

network

Database

e.g., Oracle, Sybase...

entering platforms
Entering Platforms
  • A “stand-alone” program only needs the “Client OS” filled in
  • A client-server database (like HR/Vantage) needs
    • Client OS (OS for the client software?)
    • Server OS (OS for the server software?)
    • Database (what databases can be used to store the data for this application?)
data entry strategy
Data Entry Strategy
  • See if the vendor is there.
    • If not, enter the vendor first
  • See if the rest of the look-up terms are there
    • Operating systems
    • Databases
    • Product functions
  • If not, you will need to enter them
accurate descriptions are vital
Accurate Descriptions are Vital!
  • This information will be published on the WWW
  • Need to differentiate rumor and opinion from actual product function/performance
  • When in doubt, you can enter “contact vendor for details”
