Top 8 Vendors in the Human Capital Management Software Market in Germany from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top eight leading vendors in their recent human capital management (HCM) software market in Germany report. This research report also lists 12 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The introduction of the Employment and Labor Law 2016 in Germany will increase the adoption of HCM software. The law regulates the employee-employer relationship by providing a set of guidelines such as contractual agreements, proper documents of employee and working conditions, and work time. It also facilitates protection of employees from unlawful employer activities such as insufficient wages. HCM software has employee-related compliance management where the process is automated to ensure all the regulations are satisfied.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the market is fragmented with the presence of many multinational vendors. Several vendors have established a sizeable market presence in the HCM software market in Germany. ADP, SAP, Oracle, and Workday are the leading players in the market.

“Competition has intensified due to the increasing demand for HCM software among large enterprises and SMEs. Price wars among players have increased, driven by the need to form high-value partnerships with large enterprises,” says Ishmeet Kaur, a lead enterprise application analyst from Technavio.

The highly fragmented nature of the market is affecting the proportion of target audiences, with vendors struggling to build clear business cases. Large players require multiple vendors to mitigate risks, especially when they wish to discontinue their business with a specific vendor. Established vendors will acquire smaller vendors to expand their product portfolio and increase their market share. Through such acquisitions, large companies acquire advanced technologies and have an opportunity to enter new markets. In addition, smaller service providers have less success in establishing effective working relationships with end-users, compared with their larger counterparts.
