Philadelphia, PA – April 27, 2018 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today, and Alexander Mann Solutions, one of the world’s leading providers of talent acquisition and management services, have partnered to release the Human Resources New Technology Quarterly Summary: Q1 2018.
The purpose of publishing these new quarterly reports is to track and analyze recent advances in technology and in funding initiatives aimed at supporting product innovation in HR. This information provides critical insights into new technology, their applications and the companies offering them in the human capital management technology sector.
Among the 36 major announcements noted in the first quarter alone, three areas of technology development had particularly high levels of activity: artificial intelligence (AI), platforms that facilitate communication between employers and employees or candidates, and blockchain technology.
“Nearly one-quarter of the announcements so far this year have referenced AI,” said Jerry Collier, director of global innovation at Alexander Mann Solutions. “AI is becoming a larger part of HR technology, but what companies are actually doing with it can vary. The implications for the adoption of the technology are enormous, and in this report we provide some insight into what that can mean to an organization.”
“Blockchain technology, which provides a secure way to view data in real-time, is poised to make a significant difference in how businesses of all sizes operate,” said Larry Basinait, vice president of market research, SharedXpertise. “Its ability to address cyber security concerns, as well as its cost savings implications, gives companies an incentive to invest in this emerging technology.”
In addition to exploring key areas of technology development, the report provides a monthly breakdown of major product development initiatives, funding transactions, and mergers and acquisitions.
