The conference dialogue has moved forward too - this year's discussion looks at how software, technology systems and collaborative tools are driving deep transformation in the HR function, in the way people work, and how organizations are managed. All the key issues uppermost in the minds of HR professionals are up for debate: business & HR transformation, talent analytics, 'big data', vendor selection, enterprise collaboration, the cloud, recruitment, workplace democracy & Bring Your Own Device, engagement, implementation & cultural change - it's about the workplace of the future and tomorrow's world of HR.
Keynote Analysts on HR Technology including Thomas Otter of Gartner, Naomi Bloom, and Josh Bersin will discuss and debate the implications of mergers and acquisitions in the HR Technology market and the implications for users.
Leading Practitioners are central to this years event.

The co-located Next Generation Talent forum is about Transformative Change - the key challenge facing those responsible for talent management, leadership, learning and development. During the forum they will be required to ask themselves if what they are doing is just a walk on part in a corporate process. This will include a lively discussion on the next generation of talent management tools, tactics and techniques.
The co-located Social Enterprise forum on collaborative technology mines deep into the coming changes shaping the world of work. A happier workplace culture where the focus is on the work rather than being part of a process. Flatter management structures, the end of information silos and the barons that control them. Workplace democracy, and improved efficiency and performance through social networks. Europe's leading thinkers and practitioners on social media inside the enterprise will help delegates stay ahead of the game.
The 2nd Annual iHR competition takes place on 25 October at HR Tech Europe 2012, showcasing a shortlist of the newest, most innovative start-ups and the IT applications they offer for those in the business of HR management. With judges that include Leading Analysts, HR Practitioners, Investors, Entrepreneurs, and of course the audience, this years competition is set to reveal the disruptive technologies that will change the game for HR.
