As I finalize my HR Technology report for 2021 I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about HR Tech for the year ahead, and among the many things going on, the biggest of all is what I’d call “adaptable HR platforms.”
Think about it this way. In the traditional world of enterprise software, companies build applications. The application is essentially a set of forms, interfaces, and transactions that automate and integrate your work. In payroll, for example, the software captures your hours and then computes pay, taxes, benefits, and other deductions. It then captures the data, sends information to your bank, and sends notifications to you.
