Machine Learning and Algorithms in HR Software and e-Recruitment Software

Posted by Mathew French on 20 April 2016

The next wave of HR Software innovation has arrived. Without rushing too far ahead, here is a recap of the amazing disruption that has occurred in the HR Software Market over the past 5 years.

There has been a dramatic shift in the pricing model of HR Cloud SaaS. There is a huge shift from on premise licencing to Annualised. Oracle has made this shift and is now one of the biggest generators of revenue in the Cloud Software space.

Over the past 8 years, Human Resources systems have undergone a significant evolution - with the architecture of many of today's solutions virtually unrecognisable in comparison to their early noughties counterparts. Even the Payroll space has been radically transformed, despite the fact that many people thought it would take a lot longer for Payroll and Finance to go on-line and be cloud based in a mainstream manner. At the foundation of all these changes is the purpose of connecting both people and different systems together to create increased efficiencies and greater degrees of freedom. This level of innovation and automation has created inspiring levels of progress and change for many businesses, but what is in store during the next 5 to 10 years?
