Published since 1997, the Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey is the longest running, most widely distributed, and most highly participative research effort in the HR industry, annually tracking 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.

HR technology selection and adoption is rapidly shifting to focus on culture and strategy outcomes as organizations reassess their HR technology environments, evaluate intelligent technologies, and determine where those fit into their long-term goals for meeting employee and business needs. Growing demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) insights, data aggregation tools such as Data Lakes, and the impact of the growing Employee Data Footprint are emerging trends in the HR technology conversation.
