The Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey White Paper is one of the main sources I use to keep my finger on the pulse of the HR Technology industry. The trending data and future landscape analysis is extremely valuable—I’m not sure I could effectively do my job or remain a thought leader in the industry without it.

Having a career passion for enabling technology for HR, I am drawn to the unbiased, objective nature of the Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey White Paper. It serves as my voice to the vendors in terms of what we need and where we want to go at Dell. The benchmarking component is also vital in validating the technology and making the case for investment.

The real win for our organization is in the actual exercise of completing the yearly Survey. The detailed questions force us to take a good, hard look at what we’re really doing in our business… a real eye-opening experience and well worth the effort.

I really enjoyed Stacey’s presentation and am excited to see the full Survey results.  Metrics tell such a great story and are fabulous for supporting proposed initiatives.  The data provided underscored what we have been hearing and seeing as trends in HR—especially as they relate to social media.  Balancing Stacey’s presentation with Diane’s (the successful and practical application) was very smart and shows that, with a little elbow-grease, great things can be accomplished.  I continue to enjoy running into friends in the business and meeting new peers.
