With all due respect to Isaac Asimov, the continuing reliance on technology has yet to produce the predatory examples of “I, Robot,” or the scary dominance of machines of “Terminator” (which threatened to come back and kept on doing so in sequels, sadly), or the terrifyingly logical and murderous Hal of “2001: A Space Odyssey.” In truth, software robots, manufacturing robots, and even those Roomba vacuum cleaners are pretty boring (unless you see a YouTube video of a cat riding one). For HR, the questions are: What are robots? And what are they not?
HR applications of technology are different than automobile assembly plants, which deal with inanimate production products. The frothy excitement that is seen in the HR press about “bots” and their future is pretty speculative and at some level, in spite of the promise of technology, I just don’t care. And as you will see below, that is the point.

But the 2019 ISG Industry Trends in HR Technology and Service Delivery survey found that while more than 60 percent of respondents are achieving significant savings in the areas of IT/technology operations and HR administration, drawing ongoing business value from platform technology solutions is still a challenge.
