"Results of IDC HR buyer research over the past three years show that the importance of social technology is on a steady rise in the minds of HR buyers," says Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies for IDC. "However, mobile, cloud, and analytics are still seen as more important than social technology by HR executives. As a result, uptake of social technology in talent is slow, with an aggregate average penetration rate of just 15–20%."
