Today, we’re delighted to unveil our new 2018 Fosway 9-Grids™ for both Cloud HCM (Human Capital Management) and Integrated Talent Management (ITM).

The aim of the Fosway 9-Grids™ is to help to demystify the supplier side of the next gen HR, learning and talent markets, assisting HR leaders in making informed decisions around solutions choices. It is the only industry analysis specifically focused on Europe and helps buyers compare supplier solutions based on their Performance, Potential, Market Presence, Total Cost of Ownership and Future Trajectory.

2018 Fosway 9-Grid - Cloud HCM

“At an overall level, HR is trying to evolve to deal with big changes in work and in the workforce.” comments our CEO, David Wilson. “Moving HR into the Cloud and engaging with strategic HR processes in a connected way with a great employee experience is no longer just optional. Customers using Cloud HCM platforms are three time more likely to report value for money than traditional HR systems, and maybe more importantly are also able to be much more agile. New innovations in people analytics and artificial intelligence will only accelerate this further in the future.”

“Meanwhile, the value of talent management to organisations against a backdrop of skills shortages continues to increase. In 2018 and beyond, managing talent is not just another HR process, it is the vehicle for delivering an organisation’s Employee Value Proposition (EVP). Both these new 2018 Fosway 9-Grids™ reflect the changing nature of the markets, with new inclusions and new positioning that reflect how suppliers are working to really tackle today’s HR challenges.”

The Fosway 9-Grid™ model is now in its sixth annual research cycle and is based on independent research and insights from our corporate research network, as well as market profiling, briefing activities and customer feedback.

Each Fosway 9-Grid™ is accompanied by a useful analyst report, outlining the broader trends and context in each market. To download your free reports click here for Cloud HCM and click here for Integrated Talent Management.
