THE BOTTOM LINE

Talent Management Technology Value Matrix 2017

Year-over-year change in vendors’ placement within the Talent Management Technology Value Matrix is light. The biggest exception is Saba Software, which has catapulted into the Leader quadrant on the heels of the company’s decision to acquire Halogen Software to offer mile-deep end-to-end specialization at the intersection of performance management and learning. It’s a wise competitive move, and Nucleus believes 2018 will touch off a fire sale for vendors that fail to develop sound strategies to survive and thrive in the new normal—where everything they do today is also available from full-suite providers of technology for all of human capital management (HCM).
