Forrester names top cloud-based HR performance and learning software
- Forrester Research names SAP SuccessFactors, Cornerstone OnDemand and Saba Software the top cloud-based HR performance management and learning software, reports TechTarget.
- Runners up in the 16-page report were PageUp, Talentsoft, SumTotal, Halogen Software and PeopleFluent. Haufe was a distance behind.
- Claire Schooley, principal analyst at Forrester and author of the report, told TechTarget that in performance and learning management, cloud-based software is becoming more vital to businesses. Performance management and learning are closely connected because a performance evaluation can spot what training employees need.
The various tools the technology provides HR, and business generally, is immeasurable. Cloud-based software allows the storage of massive bits of information that HR needs to sustain and manage. HR also has access to more big name options these days as well, as companies like Microsoft have begun to recognize the potential business in the space.
The array of software gives HR several products from which to choose. However, studies like these can help HR with the selection based on need, use, performance and cost.
