We cannot be more proud that SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Recruiting in Integrated Talent Management 2016 Vendor Assessment.
IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the shortterm. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the circles. Vendor year-over-year growth rate relative to the given market is indicated by a plus, neutral or minus next to the vendor name.
But I have to ask myself, what makes someone(thing) a leader, or in this case many someones. When you break it down, solutions are built by people for other people, but in an analyst report, what does it actually mean? I think the general answer you are going to get is “well there are a number of factors, and we rate those factors across the market (or something to that extent). However, I think the best answer is given by Warren Bennis, who said, “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
Over the past years, we have worked tirelessly to do exactly this in SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting. Yes, some roadmap items aren’t the sexiest on the planet, but they are built for people that need it and desire things like career site builder; a responsive candidate experience, in both design and function; or bringing one of the most comprehensive job distribution solutions, Recruiting Posting, to market.
We continue to strive to deliver a complete recruiting solution to source, engage, and hire the world’s best talent with a comprehensive yet simple solution that provides guidance to everyone at every step. And by being part of the leading talent management suite, we are able to provide a proactive system that helps not only recruiters but the entire organization, get a picture of talent coming into the business. All of this means meeting the needs of organizations around the world, while focusing on the individual user to make his or her job more enjoyable. We look forward to the rest of 2016 and beyond.
