If I recall your ISOWeek function takes in a datestring in your example

ISOWeek["20120101"]

I believe you may get some speed gains by not letting Mathematica do the
date format translation.

Write you own translation if the date format is also in ISO to Mathematica
date list form.

"20120101" -> {2012,1,1}

Tks for your attention
I have made some progress, but not enough:

below there is one fast way to get weekDay

weekDayC = Compile[{{ano, _Integer}, {m, _Integer}, {d, _Integer}}
, Module[{t, y = ano},
(*2 for Monday*)
t = {0, 3, 2, 5, 0, 3, 5, 1, 4, 6, 2, 4};
y -= Boole[m < 3];
Mod[y + IntegerPart[y/4.] - IntegerPart[y/100.] +
IntegerPart[y/400.] + t[[m]] + d + 1, 7, 1]
]
]

I used it in my ISOWeek like this

ISOWeekX2[x_] := Module[{baseDate, year454, weekNames, numWeek},
year454 = First@DatePlus[x, -Mod[weekDayC @@ x - 1, 7, 1] + 4];
baseDate = {year454, 1, 3};
numWeek =
IntegerPart[
1/7 (DateDifference[baseDate, x] + weekDayC @@ baseDate + 5)];
{year454, numWeek}
]

But the there are 2 another slow parts, that are DateDifference and
DataPlus. But to get rid of that that is a lot of job..
Native functions would be great...
