Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Infor HCM has been recognized as a Leader among human capital management applications in Nucleus Research's latest Technology Value Matrix for Human Capital Management (HCM). Vendors are evaluated on their depth of functionality and usability across the spectrum of capabilities provided, including the level of integration between functions and the use of analytics and social collaboration to support decisions. Nucleus Research placed vendors in the Leader category who are focusing their efforts on providing integrated functionality across the core competencies of HCM and integrating HCM into the bigger picture of operational HCM analytics.
"Infor provides a quantitative and analytical approach to human capital management that gives customers a scale to determine employee value potential from the point of hire," said Zachary Chertok, analyst, Nucleus Research. "The company supports the employee lifecycle with a cloud-based solution that includes core HR, workforce management, and talent management with packaged offerings for industry specific needs in healthcare, public sector, manufacturing, financial services, retail and hospitality."
The report also notes that Infor's breadth of functionality within HCM and beyond provides a distinct market opportunity to provide customers with combined solution capabilities on one data platform, supported by one company. In addition, while the company is pushing to create a common visual interface through its 'Hook and Loop' strategy, Infor has gone deeper to create an analytical base for subjective and objective labor feedback that can be extended to talent management, workforce management and core HR processes.
"This Leader ranking illustrates our commitment to Infor HCM and providing our customers with industry-leading software," said Tarik Taman, general manager, Infor HCM. "With the recent acquisition of PeopleAnswers, we're looking to even further deepen our workforce analytics capabilities by integrating talent science into our human capital management suite of solutions to quantify employee characteristics across multiple industries."
