Cloud, big data and social media transforming HR

Screen Shot 2013-04-11 at 23.25.57.png  I only recently came across this interview in Computer Weekly that I provided during HR Tech Europe's Spring Warm-Up.  I talk about the need for HR and IT to work more closely together and then go on to say:

"In most UK organisations, the technology used to underpin HR operations is "woefully inadequate" compared to level of IT used in the rest of the business, Ingham said.

“What you have is a huge gap between what organisations are doing and what they could be doing, in one of the areas that is becoming the most important for business,” he said.

Ingham advised HR professionals start learning about the impact that social analytics, cloud and other technical innovations could have in driving the effectiveness of business."


The first paragraph sounds a bit stronger than I really believe but I did mean what I said about the gap.  And we do need to get much more closely connected to the developments in HR tech...
