As a key element of workplace technology, human resource management systems (HRMS) have undergone a number of changes in response to data management trends. HRMSs has arisen in response to the large quantities of data that human resources professionals process on a daily basis, but the rise of “big data” has placed even greater demands on these systems.

Over half of the HRMSs in place at large companies were more than seven years old as of early 2013, and many systems are being updated or will need to be updated soon.

HRMS developers are offering customizable systems that provide greater analytic capabilities, integrate with other software, allow for mobile recruiting, and enable companies to find answers to the specific questions that they pose about their candidates. Updated HRMS systems can also serve as online file repositories that enable access to documents such as benefits forms and employee handbooks. Sophisticated HRMS systems can also automate tasks and eliminate the need for HR staff to engage in labor-intensive data-entry-type functions.
