IT 2.0 & HR 2.0: From Transaction to Transformation

Future of CIO

Future of CIO

Interesting article by Pearl Zhu on how IT and HR have similar issues and need to work together:

IT and HR have many things in common, HR is taking charge of the most valuable asset – people in organization; and IT is custodian of business’s life blood, the other crucial business asset – information; at digital era, both IT & HR functions are short of business’s high expectation, and not get well-respected in organization, since they have been perceived as cost center, rather than value center.

 The value of the Human Resources (HR) function elicits sharply contradictory views within organizations. on the one hand, in today’s competitive global markets, the “war for talent” is understood to be crucial to almost every business, on the other hand, the HR function is often dismissed as non-essential or ineffective; same as IT, via numerous CIO debates, IT struggles to “keep the light on”, lack of focus on innovation and transformation. Both CIO and CHRO usually don’t have a seat at big table, as they act more like functional manager, than business strategist and visionary.  

So in order to avoid becoming irrelevant and obsolete, there’s tough choice ahead –how to blueprint IT 2.0 and HR 2.0?
