                               I.   Introduction

HR administration was kept to issues, for example, pay rates and enrollment.
The organization framework was unbending and bureaucratic. HR frameworks were
paper-based. Features were included as required, the announcing was
exceptionally simple, and HR was the sole overseer of the information. It was
regular for managers this period to send workers to HR to get their everything
their work force questions replied. In the following stage, there was a
relocation of the data occupant in these paper-based frameworks to PCs and
neighborhood (LAN) frameworks. These HR databases could create reports that
essentially recorded fundamental worker’s data. Advances in database innovation
included finance and some extremely fundamental versions of worker following.
The following stage started with the development of social database innovation.
A social database implies that a bit of information can be put away in more
than One File, every one containing distinctive kinds of information. The
diverse records can be connected with the goal that data from the different
documents can be utilized together. 1A social database enables databases to be set up in a
few distinct areas and the data connected. This innovation furnished organizations
with the capacity to grow more intricate reports that incorporated a few
information components. Right now, many organizations have begun to grasp HR
innovation. The concentration has moved to computerizing whatever number
exchanges as could be expected under the circumstances to accomplish viability
and efficiency. Online applications utilize a Web program as a user interface.
Clients can get to the applications from any PC associated with the Internet by
means of a safe, secret key shielded login page and from that point forward all
the data are encrypted.  Now, the larger
part of framework is still not Web-based, but rather some leading edge
organizations have grasped this innovation. The innovation of the future will
be about expedient access to precise current data, and the capacity to get to
this data by means of numerous frameworks will give organizations a vital edge.
The new framework will be about HR and IT cooperating.2

Pakistan has a deficiency of
skilled labor, which keeps the nation from financially contending in the
worldwide town. Sadly, minimal expenditure was spent on the preparation and

innovation, present day fabricating forms, guarantee quality in production and
enhance skills of the workers so they can adjust to new condition. By doing as
such organization are required to enhance their insight administration work. It
is therefore essential to see new innovation worldview and dovetail skilled
human asset in the process to accomplish human factor building to empower
quality item and administrations are rendered to the general public. It is in
the light of the above; HR functions are required to be believed to meet the effect

operation example or structure that stipulates what data is to be gathered from

                                V. Analysis

An organization’s Technology is the procedure by which

Technology incorporates apparatuses, hardware, tools, work techniques, and
workers learning and attitudes. In the present focused world, technological
achievements can drastically impact and organization’s administration markets,
providers, wholesalers, contenders, clients, fabricating forms, marketing and
aggressive position. Technological progressions can make new competitive
benefits that are more capable than existing ones. Recent Technological
advances, as we know, in PCs, lasers, robots, satellite systems, fiber optics,
biometrics, cloning and other related areas have made ready for critical
operational enhancements. The quick innovation likewise requests HR experts to
get new skills through instruction, or sourcing HR Professionals who have IT
information. Note that an organization that does not have an electronic system
still has a HRM framework; that is, the paper system that most organizations
used before the advancement of PC innovation were as yet similar with a HRIS,
however the administration of worker data was not done as fast as in an
electronic framework. If an organization did not have a paper framework, the
improvement and execution of an automated framework would be to a greatly
difficult. Larger part of the organizations has now understood the significance
of data stocking and recovery.5

Traditional Vs. New
HR Functions

Traditional HR:

traditional managers focused on work administration, but did not take part into
an organization’s arranging and procedure decision. They gave careful
consideration to control their workers, including precisely planning the
agreements and rules for checking the workers. The role of HR manager in the
association was principles and regulation for worker administration. Actual
decisions were executed by the line managers as they were in charge of building
employee relations and looking after peace. During this period, there was a
shift in the part of HR experts as they were being considered for key business
issues. Scope of HR was enlarged to some degree with new HR Functions related

administrators to create, execute and assess competitive business techniques,
HR systems, policies and practices and steady business methodologies. In their
role as change operators, they deal with the Organizational changes and make
new culture where its workers are motivated to participate in the new
circumstance. As a manager, they help in outlining organizational procedures,
building authoritative ability to increase benefits, diminishing cost,
including quality and better HR administrations to make HRM works more

part of their HR work. The HR experts should successfully use the technology
for creating skills of the workers to confront these challenges and for the
development of the business also. The application of information technology can
make great expansions and raise the status of the HR experts all in all. The
business world is becoming competitive and looked with new difficulties every
day including business natural change, innovative change, consumer loyalty,
developing relations and issues relating with reduction in cost and increment
in efficiency. The people can address the difficulties of the
present day market. The technological improvements have
been main thrust for making new parts for the HR functions to enhance their
business capability. Human Resource Information technology has made it simpler
for the HR departments to coordinate their databases, and give information on
the policies, news, and advertisements and so forth. It is the least complex type of implementation of the HRIT which could be available by anybody, whenever and anyplace inside the organization. It has additionally
empowered the workers to refresh the data and hence, relieved the HR experts of
the weight of keeping up and putting away records. Various devices have been
produced, for example, e- e-recruiting system, e-determination framework
e-execution framework, and e-pay framework. For instance, in the enrollment,
without the eye to eye meeting and inquiry HRIT can make the candidates less
demanding to gather data about jobs and to access to the HR experts. Thus, data
about worker’s abilities, qualities, evaluation information and so on can help
in settling decisions about their skills, data on worker output can be utilized
for enhancing their qualities. Further, the electronic systems like web, email
and so on are very helpful in sending and refreshing data.1
