Big Data Continues To Grow in HR

Possibly more important and valuable than a company’s financial data is the data gathered by human resource departments. Companies may not realize it yet but in the long run, such data could be mined in a number of ways.

According to a recent article that appeared on SHRM, Phil Wainewright, who had recently attended the HR Tech conference in London doubts that most HR departments are ready to deal with the impending changes regarding data. This may be due, Wainewright says, to just how conservative HR leaders tend to be around new technologies and adapting to them, preferring instead to cling to the worn out practices of the past.

According to an article appearing in Entrepreneur Magazine from 2015, it was predicted that by 2018, 6,400 organizations with 100 or more employees will have implemented big data analytics within their organizations. This prediction it seems is well on track,

What is clearly looming on the horizon in the sphere of human resources is the Cloud. In a recent study conducted by Information Services Group, it is believed that by the year 2020, “more than half of all enterprises will move all or some of their HR systems to the cloud.” What’s true is that many organizations have already begun transitioning some of the functions usually conducted by their human resource departments to the Cloud.

ISG further asserts that by 2020, those companies that were early adopters of cloud technologies will have moved most if not all of their HR information there. No matter where the information is housed, however, ensuring data security is something that should be taken into careful consideration. You can read more about HR data trends here.
