While some multinational corporations (MNCs) have HR analytics capabilities within a global head office, local HR professionals are stymied by their inability to tap into this information for local, timely planning and decision-making. Important employee information can live in a million different places ? enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, HR information systems, payroll and talent management systems, you name it. Some data are even still held in spreadsheets.
Just finding the data can be a challenge, let alone integrating it and running sophisticated business-focused queries on it.
