Introduction to HR Digital Transformation and HR Data Science with AWS

· Data Science

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant changes in the business landscape, and digital transformation has become more important than ever. In particular, the pandemic has highlighted the need for HR digital transformation, which can help companies address new challenges such as remote work and employee engagement. As a data scientist, I have seen firsthand how HR digital transformation can help companies maintain digital processes without disruption.

In this blog, I will explore the importance of HR digital transformation and HR data science, the existing use cases of HR on AWS.

Why is HR Digital Transformation and HR Data Science Important?

HR digital transformation is crucial for companies to integrate their people strategies with their digital strategies, allowing them to move their business in sync with AI capabilities and people capabilities. Without a successful HR digital transformation, companies may find it difficult to enable their digital transformation, resulting in disruption caused by people sticking to previously implemented digital processes. Without a great HR digital transformation in place, companies can lose revenue, increase costs, and be unable to attract the desired talent.

Existing HR Use Cases on AWS

There are numerous existing HR use cases on AWS that companies can learn from. For example, Singapore Airlines has been using AWS Redshift, AWS EC2, and Successfactor to build an attrition dashboard on Microsoft SharePoint. DBS has built an HR data warehouse on AWS for their HR data science team to develop use cases that optimize HR in all 11 HR categories. Additionally, Sage Human Capital is using AWS Marketplace to offer their recruiting analytics. Ascender is selling its payroll system with AWS. These use cases can serve as a valuable resource for companies looking to implement HR digital transformation.

Risks and Challenges of Undertaking HR Digital Transformation

HR digital transformation comes with its own set of risks and challenges. One of the most significant concerns organizations face is HR's concern about data privacy and data breaches. These concerns can be addressed by working with AWS to demonstrate their ability and steps to protect against data breaches while enabling ease of use for HR data science. Another challenge is closing the skills gap. AWS can address this challenge by hiring HR data science practitioners to demonstrate the AWS capabilities in building HR digital and HR data science capabilities.

The Role of AWS in HR Digital Transformation

AWS provides the necessary infrastructure and tools for companies to implement HR digital transformation with ease. With AWS, companies can easily store and manage HR data, run analytics and machine learning algorithms, and build custom HR applications.
