The trend towards cloud-based software solutions is not stopping at the Human Resources department. Almost all major software vendors offer not only conventional on-premise systems (customer-specific installations) but also a cloud variant, of which some offer significantly greater functionality.
Often manufacturers only provide new functionalities and modules in the cloud.
First and foremost, SAP is setting standards in Cloud HR solutions with SAP SuccessFactors. The solution can be used to map the entire employee lifecycle in the cloud.
But respecting the path from on-premise to the cloud is not a purely technical paradigm shift, but rather also associated with the fact that areas of responsibility change or previously blurred areas at your boundaries are now blurred.
In everyday life, this is usually noticeable in the fact that expertise from the human resources department paired with technical knowledge is essential to be able to execute an ideal position. HR and IT merge in many ways so much that often a reorganization makes sense or in the department of IT experts to settle to ensure short distances and response times.
