Published since 1997, the Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey annually tracks the adoption, deployment approaches, and value achieved from HR technologies. We study the roadmaps that organizations navigate and decisions they make regarding technology, integrations, processes, and people when building an empowered HR function that serves the workforce and supports organizational outcomes. We provide practical data on emerging and innovative technology trends and help organizations understand how they can capitalize on them. We share this research freely to assist organizations with developing their HR systems strategy, devising a plan, justifying investments, and ultimately executing on their HR technology vision.
