Strategic Enterprise Analytics - Keeping HR Relevant
As People Analytics is growing in data quality, capability and scope, so other departments are beginning to draw workforce data into their own analytics programmes.
Similarly, technology is developing and further permeating business on all levels - from internal messaging to AI-driven insight to the Internet of Things.
All of this is leading some more advanced organisations to begin combining analytics and technology across domains, blending the tools, expertise and initiatives to form a strategic Enterprise Analytics function.
As departments like Marketing, Procurement and Finance are often further ahead in terms of analytics capability and sophistication, the challenge for HR is to step up and assert the importance and usefulness of workforce data in this new, integrated analytics approach.
One of the most recognisable names in HR and Business Analytics, Bernard Marr discusses with Max Blumberg several topics around the outlook for HR and Enterprise Analytics:
- The main trends in Enterprise Analytics, such as fog computing, data minimisation and analytics democratisation
- The application of AI in day-to-day business operations
- How companies apply Enterprise Analytics in practice
- How to maximise the value of data as a strategic asset
- The four pillars of value creation as they apply to HR and the people function.
