PA IN THE MEDIA

HR and the Cloud

Tom Starner

Human Resources Executive

13 June 2011

PA is quoted in Human Resources Executive discussing how Software-as-a-Service and cloud computing can help human resources. These technologies are already changing the way HR operates and can help HR organisations of any size compete and operate on a global scale.  

Here is an excerpt from the story "HR and the Cloud" where PA is quoted:

PA says many aspects of an employer's HR processes can now be delivered using SaaS applications, including recruitment, administration, employee-relationship management, communication, learning and development, etc.

"However the main challenge in adopting SaaS and making it a reality is not a technology challenge - it is a management challenge," PA says. "There are several key factors for success."

First, HR organisations need to clearly establish their requirements for SaaS and the business case for change.

Second, HR organisations should adopt a multi-sourcing strategy for SaaS services that integrates with wider HR and business processes, as well as aligning with the enterprise cloud strategy and the enterprise HR-shared-services and outsourcing strategy (assuming there is one).

Finally, the HR organisation needs to build new governance and oversight capability to manage SaaS-delivered services.

"SaaS will increasingly be a key component of the future HR operating model for organisations of all sizes, but the transition to SaaS needs to be carefully managed in order to ensure the promised benefits are delivered," PA says.
