Acceptance of Cloud-based Talent Management Solutions to Foster Market Potential

Due to digitization, organizations generate vast amounts of data, exerting pressure to exploit that data to obtain competitive advantages. Agencies are increasingly adopting cloud-based solutions to turn massive data into relevant insights. Talent management is proving to be a critical competitive advantage for key players. Furthermore, organizations are shifting to cloud-driven software, owing to flexible payment and plan options. For instance,

  • In March 2021, IBM OpenPages launched cloud-powered data privacy management software, enabling companies to resolve emerging data privacy issues.

Therefore, cloud-based solutions provide organizations with a customized model to fit their needs, including analytical functions and talent management capabilities.


Streamlining Hiring Process through Technological Innovations to Boost Market Potential

One of the essential factors driving the talent management software market growth is the increasing penetration of cloud-based platforms as well as the use of mobile-based personnel management systems. Organizations and HR professionals are increasingly using Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms to automate scouting, identifying, and recruiting new talent from talent pools, and retain existing personnel. Talent management software can also help streamline the hiring process, reinforce workplace culture, provide flexible learning opportunities, and identify top performers. Various technical breakthroughs, such as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), also expand the economy. For instance,

  • In June 2021, Trakstar, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) performance management and employee engagement organization, announced the merger of its modular offerings into a single Trakstar Platform. Trakstar Learn is offered for employee development, Trakstar Hire is available for better hiring and quicker onboarding, and Trakstar Perform is accessible for constant performance engagement and tracking.

Furthermore, prominent players are introducing various talent management solutions that aid in staff management and give proper development opportunities for employees. As a result of the increased need to optimize HR operations, talent management software has become more popular among companies.


Limited Awareness of Talent Management Software Solutions among SMEs to Hinder Market Growth

Although data and analytics have long been used to make informed business decisions, most companies still have a long way to go with respect to adopting talent analytics. A lack of understanding of the benefits of talent management software is a significant factor hindering the market growth. Furthermore, the costs of talent management in terms of resources, time, and money can be significant. Talent management necessitates using tools to map out talent requirements at all levels of the organization, which can be expensive. Due to their limited resources, Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) find it challenging to invest in advanced technologies. As a result, limited adoption of talent management technologies across SMEs will stifle the market growth.

The large enterprises segment dominated the market. Large enterprises will likely integrate their talent management systems with emerging technologies to provide services such as staff headcount and working hours. These firms use analytical solutions to handle problems such as recognizing the threat of high-potential employees leaving for different countries and essential roles.

SMEs are predicted to be the early adopters of HR technologies. As a result, market participants are being forced to create economical options that produce quality and high-value outcomes. Similarly, mid-sized enterprises are projected to increase their HR technology spending in the coming years.
