Congratulations to our Talent Management Systems Beauty Pageant Winner – Salary.com!

February 12, 2010

 

On Friday, February 12, 2010, HRchitect held the 12th installation in our Beauty Pageant webinar series, this time focusing on talent management systems. Participants included leading vendors in the talent management systems world – Jobpartners, Salary.com, and Workstream. Others were invited but apparently frightened to get up on a worldwide stage and unfortunately one was scheduled but dropped out at the last moment due to nerves, or perhaps scandal – we just don’t know.

At the end of the webinar, which featured a short overview of HRchitect and some definitions and observations on the HCM and talent management space, Salary.com was crowned the winner. HRchitect would like to thank the vendors for participating and the attendees for judging the contestants.

HRchitect’s Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Tiffany Appleby, once again did her usual tremendous job in ensuring the pageant ran smoothly. It’s not an easy task coordinating each vendor’s presentation, setting up rehearsals, and then running the program the day of the event!

The HRchitect beauty pageant series of webinars has become the buzz of the industry since its debut in November 2008. This series of webinars covers a different area of HR technology with each event. The concept allows attendees to see presentations from up to six leading vendors in a fun and informative format where the audience votes on the winner at the conclusion.

As an interesting side note, Human Resource Executive columnist, Bill Kutik, must have somehow seen this victory in his crystal ball as he wrote in his column this week about Salary.com widening their “functional footprint faster than any other in the market.”

Past Winners:

In November, iCIMS won the Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and Cornerstone OnDemand won the Talent Management Systems pageant. Then in December, GeoLearning won the Learning Management Systems pageant. In January, we had our Mid-Market Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and iCIMS was crowned the winner and our Onboarding pageant where SilkRoad was the winner. In February we covered Employee Performance Management where SumTotal Systems won and then mid-market HRIS where Spectrum HR was the winner. In March it was all about Workforce Planning Systems and Infohrm walked away with the crown. April brought us Compensation Systems where Workstream walked away with the crown and then we finished up the first leg of beauty pageants with Time & Attendance Systems in June, where Legiant was crowned the winner. Last August (2009), HodesIQ walked about with a  Talent Acquisition Systems crown.

HRchitect’s Beauty Pageant Webinar Series Continues on September 4 with Talent Management Systems

August 24, 2009

 

The HRchitect Beauty Pageant series of webinars, which has become the buzz of the industry, returned with a bang last week after a two month hiatus. Next week will be another action-packed Beauty Pageant, this time covering Talent Management Systems.

This series of webinars covers a different area of HR technology with each event. The concept allows attendees to see presentations from up to six leading vendors in a fun and informative format where the audience votes on the winner at the conclusion.

Last week, Hodes iQ took the crown for Talent Acquisition Systems, previously held by iCIMS.

The next exciting pageant, the twelfth in the series, will be on Talent Management Systems and will take place on Friday, September 4. The participants will be top vendors in this space, Jobpartners, Saba, Salary.com, SumTotal Systems, and Workstream. Two of those contestants have won Beauty Pageants in other categories in the past. 

The 90-minute webinar agendas will look like this:

Intro by HRchitect

Overview of the marketplace by HRchitect

Short vendor presentations (vendor order will be determine at random)

Q&A of vendors from the audience

Crowning of the Winner

Wrap-up

The sessions are moderated by Matt Lafata, VP of Sales & Marketing for HRchitect.

HRchitect developed a format to help guide each vendor with an outline of what should be covered during each portion of the pageant.  Since we have billed this as a beauty pageant, we tried to come up with pageant categories for vendors to loosely follow. Of course each vendor is free to follow their own format as this is simply a guideline:

Evening gown – To start off each portion, we are asking the vendor to come out in their best ‘outfit’ – corporate overview, history, specific identity, financial viability, marquee clients, leadership team, etc. This will be the grand entrance.

Swimsuit – Here the vendors will show some skin in this portion – usability, configurability, etc.

Talent – This portion will cover functionality, technology/integration, global ability, etc.

Interview – This will be the Q & A section from the audience. 

These beauty pageants are designed to give the audience a quick overview of the leading vendors and we are looking for creativity in presentations. Some of the past participants have gotten extremely creative in their presentations and we thank them for their time and efforts in doing this.

In November, iCIMS won the Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and Cornerstone OnDemand won the Talent Management Systems pageant. Then in December, GeoLearning won the Learning Management Systems pageant. In January, we had our Mid-Market Talent Acquisitions Systems pageant and iCIMS was crowned the winner and our Onboarding pageant where SilkRoad was the winner. In February we covered Employee Performance Management where SumTotal Systems won and then mid-market HRIS where Spectrum HR was the winner. In March it was all about Workforce Planning Systems and Infohrm walked away with the crown. April brought us Compensation Systems where Workstream walked away with the crown and then we finished up the first leg of beauty pageants with Time & Attendance Systems in June, where Legiant was crowned the winner.

To view any of these past pageants, please visit the beauty pageant part of our website. We have a full schedule of 2009 beauty pageants on our site for the remainder of the year, and several vendors have asked that we create beauty pageants around additional topics, which we are currently in the process of scheduling.

What’s Up With Workstream?

October 2, 2008

 

 

 

 

Earlier in the week we talked about the Authoria acquisition and the infusion of capital by a private equity firm. It was another clear sign that the Talent Management space is really, really hot.

 

However, the picture isn’t rosy for all vendors.

 

Take Workstream, an Ottawa, Canada based company with stock pricing issues over the past few months. They received a delisting notice from NASDAQ in late September (which they have appealed) for failing to file its annual report. Couple that with the fact that they have been facing the very real possibility that their shares will be taken off the exchange for trading at too low of a price. They have been given until November 17 to regain compliance with a $1 minimum bid price that has been set forth by NASDAQ but things are not currently looking good as they have been trading at less than 40 cents a share since June and are currently under 10 cents a share.

 

Workstream also pulled out of a planned merger with HR and Payroll vendor Empagio in June which resulted in litigation between the two companies.

 

Let’s back up a little bit and take a look at who Workstream actually is, and how they got here.

 

Workstream was founded in 1996 by Michael Mullarkey and originally started out by pulling together several distressed niche players in the talent acquisition space (Icarian, Perform, and Pure Carbon), which helped them gain market share. They expanded into other Talent Management areas with further acquisitions such as Kadiri for compensation planning, HR-Soft for performance management and Exxceed for competency management. With more than 14 acquisitions, Workstream ended up with a mixed bag of non-integrated applications in a market that was increasingly demanding integrated solutions. As a result, their revenues grew only 1-2% for 2005-2007.

 

This led to a multi-year integration effort on their part where the first phase culminated in the release of TalentCenter 7.0, which unified their best-of-breed talent management solutions through a Web 2.0 user interface, while providing built-in advanced analytics and dashboards, out-of-the-box multi-language and multi-currency support, a common reporting engine, a common security infrastructure, and user-definable, personalized workspaces.

 

So what does all this mean? Well, for starters, I don’t believe Workstream is going anywhere as they have over 400 customers including some big names such as Chevron, Kaiser Permanente, Wells Fargo, Verizon, Dell, and Nordstrom. They also claim a 96% retention rate so they must be doing something right.

 

Add to that the fact that a few months ago they were claiming growth in their business with fourth quarter revenue (their fiscal year ended in May) up 13% over the previous quarter and annual bookings growth of 50% year-over-year, and you have some of the right ingredients for success.

 

Further, Workstream also owns 6figurejobs.com and combined with their TalentCenter solution should be an attractive solution for the right company or investor to come along and put some money behind what looks to be a company that is on the path to turning things around. Of course you never know what will happen in this dynamic and changing world of Talent Management solutions and our continuing word of caution to companies looking to purchase Talent Management solutions in these uncertain times is to hire HRchitect to help take the risk out of your evaluation and selection and choose the system that is right for your firm…the first time.

Integrated Talent Management (ITM) Market Factors – Part 1, Consolidation

August 4, 2008

We’ve been blogging about Integrated Talent Management for weeks including predictions, market dynamics, how vendors have achieved ITM, and more.

 

HRchitect believes that a number of other factors will impact the evaluation, selection and implementation of ITM applications over the next 12-36 months and we will cover these in a series of blogs. In this blog we will cover consolidation in the marketplace.

 

 

The overall Human Capital Management software market will continue to consolidate – Momentum for this continues to come from many different directions, including:

 

Core HCM platform providers trying to expand their footprint (ADP’s acquisition of recruiting vendor VirtualEdge as well as Empagio’s attempted merger with Workstream are recent examples).

 

Integrated Talent Management vendors expanding from their “roots” to cover more processes (recent examples include SumTotal’s purchase of performance management

provider MindSolve and Plateau’s acquisition of compensation specialist Nuvosoft).

 

“Aggregator” HCM firms snapping up distressed niche players with differentiating capabilities (such as Workstream’s acquisition pattern over the last few years).

 

Dominant players in one HCM niche seeking to expand to a related area (the best example here is Kronos; having dominated the workforce management/optimization space, it is moving even more strongly into recruiting, predominantly hourly, by adding Deploy to its previous acquisition of Unicru).

 

Niche vendors (many of whom are chronically under-capitalized and have never been profitable) running out of money and ceasing operations.

 

With this level of market dynamism, vendor viability continues to be critical to the evaluation and selection of ITM technology. We have seen too many stories of firms that “hitched their wagon” to one vendor’s differentiating functionality, only to have that provider either go out of business or be acquired by another vendor with significantly different plans. Knowing such information as the funding structure, plans, recent sales history, and forecasts of your privately held vendors are key, as well as developing robust contingency plans in the event that the worst-case scenario occurs.

 

HRchitect recommends a series of decision drivers before selecting HR or Talent Management software and will cover some of those in upcoming blogs. If you are looking to evaluate Talent Management projects in the future, we implore you to utilize our services to help find the right product, the first time, and take away any risk associated with selecting, purchasing and implementing new software.

Integrated Talent Management (ITM) Market Dynamics – Mergers and Acquisitions

July 28, 2008

The ITM market is in the midst of a period of strong growth, fueled by the desire of many organizations to increase the impact of their people-related investments, especially those that involve attracting, developing and retaining the firm’s talent. This has sparked a wave of investment in ITM capabilities throughout the entire market ecosystem, including content providers, consultants, and technology providers of all types. Of course, vendors have also invested a great deal in marketing their ITM capabilities, and have aggressively sought to expand via venture funding, acquisition, partnerships, and organic development. During the past three years the market has experienced increased volatility, with a number of vendors making significant market moves.

 

Recently we talked about some of the funding investments made in vendors that are in the ITM space. Below are some of the major merger and acquisition activity that has taken place affecting the ITM space over the past couple of years:

 

Kronos – acquired Unicru (hourly recruiting specialist) in July 2006, was taken private by Hellman & Friedman in June 2007, then added Deploy Solutions (salary and hourly recruiting) in October 2007

 

ADP – acquired recruiting vendor VirtualEdge in October 2006

 

Kenexa – acquired recruiting vendors WebHire and BrassRing in 2006, and Recruitment Process Outsource (RPO) provider Quorum in 2007

 

Ultimate Software acquired performance and competency management vendor RTIX in October 2006

 

SumTotal – acquired performance management vendor MindSolve in November 2006

 

PreVisor – launched in January 2006 as a result of the merger of assessment vendors Qwiz, ePredix and PDRI, the firm has since acquired multiple boutique assessment firms, including Brainbench, Talent Technologies, and CraftSystems

 

Plateau Systems purchased compensation specialist NuvoSoft in February 2007

 

Ceridian – taken private by Thomas H. Lee Partners and Fidelity National Financial in November 2007

 

StepStone Solutions – purchased German-based talent management provider ExecuTrack in 2006

 

Workstream – announced in February 2008 that it will merge with HCM software aggregator and HRO provider Empagio. Workstream later pulled out of this deal which we questioned about a month ago as to why, and we still don’t have clear answers.

 

Taleo – announced on May 6, 2008 that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Vurv Technology, Inc. for approximately $128.8 million in cash and stock. As we know, the deal was finalized a short while later.

 

It will be interesting to revisit some of these acquisitions and mergers at a later date to see how they worked out for the vendors and the customers involved.

How Have Different Vendors Achieved Integrated Talent Management (ITM)?

July 25, 2008

If you are in the market for an Integrated Talent Management solution, one of the many items you should consider is how the ITM vendor is expanding their functional footprint – by organic development, or acquisition. I say one of the many items you should consider because when evaluating a Talent Management solution, HRchitect recommends the use of Decision Drivers, which I will discuss in a future blog.

 

Acquisition of one or more niche solutions provided a quick way for many vendors (e.g., Authoria, SilkRoad, SumTotal, Vurv, Plateau, Workstream) to expand their functional footprint and offer more functionality to current and prospective customers. It also provided a marketing advantage for these firms, as they could tout these expanded capabilities to build awareness as a ‘true’ ITM vendor. There is definitely a downside to this approach, however — it has often resulted in a hodge-podge of user interfaces, data models, workflow, and reporting engines residing “under the hood,” with vendors and customers struggling to meet expectations for integration from predominantly non-integrated applications. HRchitect generally expects a minimum of three years before an acquired solution is fully integrated into a vendor’s infrastructure, with interim delivery of “messaging” level data integration (i.e., two applications passing data back and forth), a common user interface, and (finally) a unified data model, fully integrated processes, workflow, and reporting.

 

Other vendors in the market (e.g., Cornerstone OnDemand, iCIMS, Softscape, SuccessFactors) chose to build additional capabilities organically rather than take the acquisition route. While it has often taken longer to bring new capabilities to market, once delivered they are already integrated and have a common user interface and more holistic processes, with one workflow engine, data model, and reporting platform. It should also be noted that organically developed functionality may take several releases to approach parity with market leaders.

 

So, is it better to wait for fully integrated functionality, or implement an acquired but not-yet-fully integrated module? The answer depends on the customer situation, including the criticality of the need and the level of requirements that need to be met versus the priority of process integration across functions. Potential customers should not underestimate how long it will take for the vendor to fully integrate an acquired module into the ITM suite, and plan for additional time after full integration has been theoretically ‘completed’ for bugs and kinks to be completely resolved.
