HRIS trends

In 2001 I noted a number of trends that I felt would begin to take shape over the next few years. They were publish on my Web Site at the time, which has now been disbanded. Anyway I thought I would re-publish them here, not that they are correct and nor do I still see them as valid trends today. However I felt it would be interesting to compare how they do stand up 3 years on. Over the next few weeks I plan to review each item to see if I can predict the future :-), or at least we can all have a bit of a laugh .

HRIS Trends
-Transactional focus is old but still important, not only save time but reduce process steps
– Enterprise process integration
– Corporate Portal, one stop shop for all your information needs, in the form of a common access point for all internal and external data, including universal connections to employee tools
– Common user experience via a consistent user interface and common tools used globally
– Content and Knowledge management with extensive collaboration tool sets
– Syndicated content both internal and external
– Single Sign On
– Project management integration
– Employee Relationship management (Full EE life cycle, before hire to after hire)
– Extranets, full supply chain management of HR services
– Data analysis (using Business Intelligence tools)

One thought on “HRIS trends

  1. I know the response is a bit late, but you had mentioned that “enterprise process integration” will become a HRIS trend. Given that we (Data Jelly) provide software to help with web-based integrations, we would love to hear more about the integrations trends you have been seeing and what type of tools may be needed to meet these needs.
