Why choose the cloud for HR Software in 2015?

As an HR professional you may not have been involved in the procurement of software in the past – this would have been the domain of IT, as any software would need to be supported by them and be able to 'talk' to their legacy infrastructure. However, the term 'cloud' is disrupting technology so you probably want to  know the answer to the question "Why choose cloud based HR Software?" as it could well bring value to your business.

In a recent CIPD podcast Arnab Banerjee, an HR Transformation and Technology expert explains how attractive cloud based HR software should be to HR professionals in 2015.  She explains that in Canada and the US organisations have moved almost exclusively to the cloud for these sort of activities.
