Report Detail

HRExaminer is proud to announce the upcoming publication of its latest industry report: The 2018 Index of Predictive Tools in HRTech: The Emergence of Intelligent Software.

The report is an industry analysis of the technologies that many in marketing refer to as Artificial Intelligence.

More on the report

HRExaminer’s Principal Analyst, John Sumser, visited the academic centers of excellence in AI and spoke with the experts. Early in the project, he learned that there isn’t any AI in HR just yet. Instead, he found an explosion of intelligent tools that deliver new benefits to HR Technology users, often with less effort from the user.

Intelligent software is the next generation. What first generation software always delivered was essentially an empty spreadsheet for the user to configure and fill. Success was measured in ‘stickiness’ (or the amount of time a user spent using the software). The new tools do just the opposite, freeing the user to make better decisions.

Early adopters always derive the largest benefits from a new technology. The report offers all of the key insights necessary to make sound purchasing decisions at this early stage of the technology. Included are sections on key budgetary issues, ethics, and a look at what tomorrow will bring.

The underlying research is based on extensive interviews and demos with thirty software vendors from tiny startups to well-recognized platform providers. Each company is profiled and critiqued in a two-page summary that includes funding, business model, vision, and execution details along with a serious analytical review.

 The report is intended for use by potential purchasers, marketing departments and investors.
