Imagine a future where data can predict which employees are flight risks, and which of those are worth trying to keep – and your “auto assistant” then schedules an appointment with them and marks your calendar?

It’s not that far off, according to Stuart Sackman, CIO/CTO and corporate vice president, global product and technology, at ADP. In fact, some of this HR-solutions technology is already being used. Sackman envisions a day when systems are smarter, interfaces are more conversational and experiences with technology are more personal, all thanks to the Cloud.
