One Stop Shopping
(June 24, 2005) We goofed in our article about the Authoria-Hire merger. Kenexa, Recruitmax, Authoria and Workstream all have their feet in the HR Management arena. Each company offers portal oriented employee talent solutions. On a point for point basis, the Workstream solution is the most comprehensive, not Authoria as we suggested.

We like the thinking on the HRTechnology Discussion Board. The blog's author, Dub Dubs, is an anonymous consultant with obviously deep experience in and around our industry. His categorization of the players is right on target:

What is an integrated talent management point solution? Well, first of all, realize you still need an HRMS. The goal is to decrease your ongoing expenditure in the HRMS and minimize implementation expense by limiting customization. If you have a point solution (aka "best of breed") then the chances you'll need to customize the solution decrease dramatically. We all know that (for example) SAP and PeopleSoft recruiting is not ready to go out of the box for most organizations. So an integrated point solution in the talent space should/may include (1) talent acquisition, (2) new hire onboarding, (3) performance management, (4) compensation management, (5) learning management, (6) succession planning, (7) analytics, (8) ESS, and (9) MSS. This is probably not a complete list. Here's how they stack up:

Kenexa: 1, 3, 7, 8, 9
Recruitmax: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9
Authoria: 3, 4, 7, 8, 9
Workstream: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Note that none of these vendors has really expanded to full LMS or LCML yet as it's too big and at this point is really a project of it's own. It should obviously be included as part of the overall talent management strategy, even though the systems implementation may be a separate sub-project. As per a previous post, you may ask why Taleo is not included in this list. Taleo is really just an ATS and does not include other components of TM.

The Authoria breakdown obviously precedes the recent merger which added the very strong Hire.com solution.
