New IDC MarketScapes Show Client Satisfaction Is On The Rise In Worldwide Integrated Talent Management Market

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. August 22, 2013 – International Data Corporation (IDC) has released a new series of MarketScape reports profiling and rating the leading vendors in the worldwide integrated talent management market.

The series of five reports show that customer perceptions have improved since last year, despite pricing having increased by an average of 40%. Buyers still perceive offerings as being priced appropriately for the value they are receiving and are satisfied with the solutions available to them.

“The vendors serving the market for integrated talent management have advanced their offerings in features and functions through both organic development and acquisition,” said Lisa Rowan, Research Vice President, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies and Services at IDC. “The gaps continue to close with buyer perceptions going up and integration, depth of capability, and customer service all garnering better marks from buyers than in 2012.”

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Talent Management 2013 Vendor Analysis (IDC #242562), Cornerstone OnDemand, Infor, Peoplefluent, Oracle, Halogen Software, and Successfactors (an SAP Company) were identified as Leaders.

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Recruiting in Integrated Talent Management 2013 Vendor Analysis (IDC #242682), Peoplefluent, Oracle, Kenexa, an IBM Company, and Successfactors (an SAP Company) were named Leaders.

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Performance Management in Integrated Talent Management 2013 Vendor Analysis (IDC #242569), Peoplefluent, Oracle, Cornerstone OnDemand, and Successfactors (an SAP Company) were placed in the Leaders category.

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Learning Management in Integrated Talent Management 2013 Vendor Analysis (IDC #242568), Oracle, Cornerstone OnDemand, and Successfactors (an SAP Company) were named Leaders.

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Compensation Management in Integrated Talent Management 2013 Vendor Analysis (IDC #242545), ADP, Peoplefluent, Oracle, and Successfactors (an SAP Company) were placed in the Leaders category.

“It is important to note that all of the vendors covered in these reports have solutions that appeal to buyers,” added Rowan. “Differentiation is more difficult to qualify than ever before. With the gaps in functionality closed or closing fast, it will be those non-functional factors that will tip the balance.”
