Last updated:October 2014

Editor's note

The HR Technology Conference returns to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas for the second year in a row on Oct. 7-10. Panels and keynotes at the 17th annual conference are geared to the sweeping cloud, social, big data and analytics trends that are transforming stodgy HRIS and human capital management (HCM) systems, and causing HR managers and senior executives to rethink how they recruit, develop, retain and manage talent.

Companies on the leading edge of HR technology will present their case studies, including ConAgra, which says it has used workforce analytics to make decision making more fact-based; and Lockheed Martin, which installed a new recruitment marketing platform to unify recruitment efforts and make them more data-driven. Expert panelists will debate such issues as the emerging role of the chief human resources officer, or CHRO, and the best ways to manage global HR services. CNN analyst and former presidential advisor David Gergen will moderate a panel on how data and analytics might shape the workplace.

SearchFinancialApplications Executive Editor David Essex will be on-site sharing success stories and best practices from users, and interviewing industry experts about challenges and trends in using technology to improve HR processes.
