IDC defines talent management as those functions that serve to attract, develop, reward, and retain the workforce.

In this MarketScape, 14 integrated talent management vendors were evaluated, with five identified as Leaders: ADP, Cornerstone, Oracle, PeopleFluent, and SAP SuccessFactors.

"The value of leveraging a fully integrated suite across a modernized user experience (UX) remains of utmost importance to buyers and the vendors that are investing heavily in both functionality and usability are being noticed by clients," said Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies at IDC. "But just as important is a vendor's ability to support clients beyond implementation – through client success strategies and strong partnerships – to drive adoption and enable transformation in talent management."
