Maximising the Business Impact of Learning

September 2017

Moving beyond evaluation and embracing impact as a central ethos for L&D

With all the change and new technology options available in learning and development, it is sometimes easy to focus only on the 'what' and the 'how' but not on the 'why'. Learning should be a strategic investment that drives business performance and builds business capability. But how do you measure the impact it really has, or go about truly maximising that impact?

Why learning management systems need to evolve into learning engagement systems

As much as they have been pivotal in delivering learning transformation, learning management systems have also become a source of frustration and dissatisfaction for corporate learning. If LMS’s are to prosper in the future, they need to take on a new role, one that they have often failed to do in the past; the role of stimulating and managing learning engagement. This Core Insights paper explores how they can evolve to do just that.

HR Technology in Europe: Key Trends and Differences

With all the talk of transforming HR, we need to also understand the corporate realities as well as the global market trends and technology possibilities.

He explored the implications for U.S. and global vendors, including corporate trends and realities and Fosway's latest vendor analysis for next-generation HR, talent, and learning.

HR Critical Realities Part 4: HR Analytics 2016

January 2016

Nowhere does analytics have the potential to be more visible in the organisation than in HR

Much has been made of Big Data in the past few years, but the reality is that it’s ‘actionable insight’ that has the greatest potential to transform organisations. Analytics could transform HR’s role in every part of the employee life cycle. But there are challenges ahead around the expertise and skills within HR and the ability of HR technology providers to meet increasingly high expectations in this area.

The fourth and final report in this series explores the increasingly important area of HR analytics.

HR Critical Realities Part 3: European HR in the Cloud 2016

January 2016

One of the key trends in European HR today is the growth of Cloud-based HR systems

The acceptance of HR technology moving to the Cloud might have come a long way, but there are still numerous challenges for both end user organisations and suppliers to contend with. Data privacy and security concerns, residual internal resistance, existing IT systems and infrastructure can all create issues that slow down or even prevent a successful move to the Cloud.

This third report in the series explores the research on how organisations are moving - or planning to move - their HR operations to the Cloud.

HR Critical Realities Part 2: The Fragmented HR Landscape 2016

An exploration of the nature of HR operations and the systems landscape across Europe.

It should come as no surprise that the HR systems landscape is more fragmented than ever. This second report in the 2015-16 Critical Realities series analyses the data that demonstrates not only a lack of standardisation but the business challenges that arise as a result. And what organisations want as they take their HR solutions forward.

HR Critical Realities Part 1: The Challenges and Priorities 2016

January 2016

What are the realities, plans, trends and challenges of HR and HR technology in Europe

With two years of data thanks to Fosway’s ongoing partnership with HRN, the realities of HR in Europe are becoming clearer. Whether it’s the top levers for success, the top HR priorities, Cloud HR or the drivers for changing HR systems – our data is telling some interesting stories.

When commentators and analysts talk about HR, the regional subtleties are often ignored. It is often viewed as a global business. But the reality for most European and international customers is that HR often feels very different from a one size fits all approach. It can be much more complex. However, understanding that complexity through data hasn’t been easy. Research on the priorities, needs and differences for European companies has been very thin on the ground. The HR research that does exist, frequently has a very US centred perspective.

This first report in our series takes you through the critical realities and challenges and what’s driving change in European HR today.

HR Technology in Europe: The Critical Realities 2015

March 2015

What are the realities, plans, trends and challenges of HR and HR technology in Europe

HR technology tends to be viewed as a global market, but the reality for European customers often feels very different, and research on the priorities, needs and differences for European companies is very thin on the ground.

This unique research, conducted by Fosway Group in association with HRN, starts to address that gap. Based on research conducted in the second half of 2014, this analysis explores the critical challenges facing HR professionals today – including critical assessments of HR strategy and organisation, operating models, and of HR technology.

SaaS Impact on Talent and Learning Systems

April 2009

Why SaaS is the critical deployment option for enterprise organisations

How are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or on-demand applications shaping the market in learning and talent systems? What will their impact be longer term? What are the barriers for SaaS in Enterprise customers? What are the key questions to ask potential suppliers?

This Core Insights paper explores how SaaS became the major force in the business applications market, impacting new and existing providers alike, and increasingly dominating corporate decisions on a range of business application decisions from accounting and customer relationship management through to video conferencing.  The learning and talent systems market has been no exception to the above trend, but how significant is SaaS in this specific market, and what are the implications for both suppliers and customers?

As Europe’s #1 HR and learning analyst, Fosway Group has been tracking the learning and talent systems market for many years. Here we examine the significant shift in the attitude of corporate decision makers towards adopting SaaS/Cloud solutions to their learning and talent management needs.

Talent Market Consolidation

Talent Market Consolidation

May 2012

What is the impact of consolidation within the talent systems market on corporate strategies and supply-side options?

Taleo buys Learn.com. SuccessFactors buys Plateau. Lumesse buys Edvantage. SAP buys SuccessFactors. Oracle buys Taleo. Kenexa buys Outstart…What’s driving these big market changes and what do they mean for their customers? What’s the likely impact on the market, on competition between the vendors, and the supply side options available to corporates?

Within little more than 12 months the talent management market has changed beyond recognition, and that’s just looking at the bigger guys. Recruiting software companies and performance management companies acquire and merge to become talent management companies. Talent companies acquire to become bigger talent companies. And the 800 pound gorillas, the HRMS/ERP providers called SAP and Oracle, finally wade into the ring and take out two of the biggest talent management companies with one swing for a cool $3.4 billion and $1.9 billion respectively. Something is definitely up!

What’s driving these big market changes and what do they mean for their customers?

What’s the likely impact on the market, on competition between the vendors, and the supply options available to corporates? What will it mean for the specialist providers still standing in the market? What do you do if you’re a customer of one of the acquired companies, or have commited to products now owned by competing ERP vendors? How are these changes going to impact talent system decision making in the future?

Here’s our take.
