When designing your HR Technology landscape there is no one size fits all approach. Before simply selecting some fancy software tool, it is essential to understand what application architecture fits with your overall strategic direction, your current IT landscape, your culture, and management attitudes. Also, you can’t always just choose a platform. Most organisations cannot start from scratch and need to deal with legacy applications and respect the company’s fundamental IT design principles.
In HRTech there is rarely a silver bullet all-in-one solution that cover all the company’s requirements. In almost every case a point solution is needed to cover the last 20% around for example skills management, employee engagement, or reporting. However, some very mature all-in solutions for HR do exist that cover payroll, Core HR and Talent Management.
