“SumTotal is the largest of the pure-play talent management vendors”
“SumTotal is the largest of the pure-play talent management vendors,” writes Claire Schooley, Forrester senior analyst, in the report. “While SumTotal offers a SaaS deployment, it also offers an on-premises deployment aimed at giving customers a choice. It has excellent localizations to meet country requirements — sometimes through partnerships — that other vendors find challenging. It continues to expand its mobile platform, social components, and portal strategy to provide its trademark feature/functionality depth.”
Forrester evaluated the software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings of select talent management software providers against 57 specific talent management criteria. To participate in this Forrester Talent Management Wave, vendors were required to provide three solutions as SaaS offerings: performance management, learning management and succession planning. In addition to receiving the highest score of any provider in learning management and collaboration, and among the highest score for financial viability, SumTotal earned perfect scores across 40 total criteria areas.
“We are pleased that Forrester has again recognized SumTotal as a leader in its recent Talent Management Wave,” said Holly Rollo, Chief Marketing Officer at SumTotal. “SumTotal is often considered the industry’s best kept secret, but as I believe this Wave report confirms, we are, in fact, the industry’s largest independent talent management provider with over 43 million users and 17 million in the cloud. We have achieved this status quietly and methodically, by continuing to innovate our solutions and by partnering with our customers to create great places to work. It’s exciting to see that the secret is getting out as SumTotal continues to outpace the mega-vendors when it comes to agility and pragmatic innovation and outperform smaller and pure-SaaS providers on stability, deployment flexibility, geographic reach and functional depth.“
