Abstract:
Human resources information systems (HRIS) help a number of HR processes to be executed with the help of IT. These systems are usually set up as on-premise systems, usually as a part of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in large organizations. Latest developments in the cloud technology field has enabled Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)- or cloud-based HR systems, and their usage is proving to be a viable alternative to on-premise HR systems. Organizations are motivated to move their HR systems to cloud in order to benefit from new technology, reduce IT costs and standardize their HR processes. In-cloud HR systems differ from on-premise systems in many aspects including their implementation methodology, costs involved, the IT and HR skills needed to implement and maintain these systems.
