IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Modern Talent Acquisition Suites 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study assesses modern talent acquisition (TA) technologies provided by vendors through the IDC MarketScape model. The research includes both quantitative and qualitative criteria that can be used to evaluate a vendor's offerings as well as current and future success in the marketplace. Twenty talent acquisition vendors were analyzed through buyer feedback and vendor interviews. Vendors were evaluated on various criteria categories (detailed in the Appendix), including user experience, core ATS, candidate relationship management, recruitment marketing, analytics, internal mobility, and onboarding.
"Talent acquisition technologies and services are offered in abundance across a large variety of capability areas for recruiting," says Matthew Merker, research manager, Talent Acquisition and Strategy at IDC. "Talent acquisition specialist and talent management suite (TMS) vendors, while competing with each other, also contend with niche third-party solutions as they seek to engage clients in more technologies pushing the boundaries of innovation. At the same time, these providers need to offer robust integration with third-party applications that may offer similar services. This creates a competitor/collaborator ecosystem that is quite complex and difficult for clients to navigate. Assessment of vendors across the capability and strategy criteria within this IDC MarketScape provides buyers with a guide to point them in the right direction and ask the right questions."
