HRchitect Announces the Availability of Two New HR Technology Reports »

Frisco, Texas (PRWEB) February 02, 2012 HRchitect, the leader in HR systems strategic consulting and the premier Human Capital Management (HCM) and Talent Management systems consulting firm, today announced the availability of two new HR technology reports, ‘Integrated Talent Management Technology Trends’ and ‘Using Decision Drivers for HCM Technology Evaluation & Selection’.

“Information is power and HRchitect takes a unique approach to putting together these reports,” stated Matt Lafata, president of HRchitect and a talent management systems analyst. “These reports are designed to help practitioners understand the dynamics of our industry, where it is going and how to proceed with caution while ensuring they choose the right systems the first time around.”

‘Integrated Talent Management Technology Trends’ delivers a real-world perspective gained from hundreds of evaluation, selection and implementation projects conducted by HRchitect to give readers not only an understanding of what integrated talent management is and how it can benefit their business, but also insight into the HR technology market, how it has evolved and will continue to evolve, and who the major players are.

“The most common question we at HRchitect get asked is ‘Which are the best integrated talent management suites?’” commented Ron Hanscome, Vice President of HCM Strategy for HRchitect and primary author for both reports. “Unfortunately, there is no single right answer to that question, as it depends on a number of factors unique to each organization. It is incredibly important to understand not only the market, but the features and functions that are most important to your organization.”

‘Using Decision Drivers for HCM Evaluation & Selection’ leverages HRchitect’s experience with more than 1800 HCM technology projects for more than 800 clients to provide readers with best practices around the creation of decision drivers and how utilizing these criteria can have a major impact on the process of selecting new HR technologies.

“Many systems look the same and appear to do the same things during an evaluation,” continued Lafata. “Using decision drivers helps to get past the hype and slick demo, and in effect, help avoid costly mistakes by taking a more scientific approach. This proven approach ensures the right system is selected for each organization’s unique needs.”
HR professionals are encouraged to visit to download their complimentary copies of both reports.

“These reports cut through the hype and buzz to provide a balanced, reality-based perspective on the rapidly evolving integrated talent management market,” explained Hanscome. “Absorbing and using the information within will increase chances of a successful selection and implementation of ITM technology.”

Additional reports and summaries of the industry’s top vendors will be published in the coming weeks via the firm’s website. To learn more about how HRchitect’s HR systems and strategy expertise benefits many of the world’s leading organizations, visit
