Chronus Corporation Updates Chronus Mentor Software with New Engagement Plans

Chronus Corporation, a leading provider of software for talent and career development, recently released a new update to its software, Chronus Mentor, which helps organizations start, manage, and measure mentoring programs. Engagement Plans is a new feature that guides participants through the mentoring process to realize program goals, improving the return on investment (ROI) of a mentoring program.

“Chronus Mentor software has always provided guidance through the mentoring process,” explained Praerit Garg, Chief Product Officer of Chronus. “Now, the new Engagement Plan feature connects goal-setting, tasks and resources all into one simple workflow. This makes it easier for administrators and participants to define and work through a mentoring program toward a successful result. We are thrilled with the early feedback on this feature set from our customer base.”

The new Engagement Plan feature offers:

  • Program format flexibility – Administrators can define the level of structure of the mentoring program, from very lightweight to highly structured program formats
  • Intuitiveness – The online environment is simplified to make it easy and engaging for administrators and participants to follow
  • Enhanced goal feature – For mentoring participants to define and track progress
  • Resource integration – For attaching documents, web links and tasks to activities
  • Templates – Included templates make creating an engagement plan fast and easy

Customer Reaction

“Seeing the whole program in a timeline format makes it easy to visualize. The ease of editing and ability to link documents to tasks or email is also helpful,” said Eric Simpson, Ph.D., Director of Leadership and Employee Development for BBVA Compass.

The new update went live in the cloud-based software on January 20, 2014. Existing customers can expect assistance with migration from the Client Services team at Chronus. New implementations of the software will include this update starting on that date.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.
