eThority ®,the provider of a user-obvious enterprise performance engine for reporting and analytics, is launching its HR-specific offering DataTalent, in booth #408 at the IHRIM HRMStrategies Conference today. DataTalent is a workforce performance engine designed from the ground up to help HR deliver intuitive workforce analytics, reporting and benchmarking of key metrics to stakeholders. Powered by eThority, DataTalent helps HR leverage workforce performance management to meet and exceed corporate business objectives.
DataTalent brings workforce analytics to HR users of all technical skill levels within an organization, and reduces the Human Resource department’s dependence on IT interaction for report creation, modification and analysis. In addition to its user-obvious interface, DataTalent is powered by eThority’s enterprise performance engine, which results in an easy-to-use, robust, secure and scalable software solution.
“We are very excited about the launch of the DataTalent brand in the Human Capital Management space,” said Mike Psenka, eThority’s President and CEO. “Our aim is to form a tight partnership with the leaders of HR to provide them with the tools they need to maintain their pivotal role in the direction and leadership of organizations around the globe. Our solution is designed to empower entire organizations from key decision makers to the front line troops that make success a reality for their teams.”
“The pressure on HR to ensure effective execution and results from recruiting, learning, performance, compensation, and succession activities requires analytics that provide insight and ability to take action for ensuring the efficiency of HR.” said Mark Smith, CEO & EVP Research of Ventana Research. “The introduction of DataTalent brings a fresh approach to analytics designed for HR professionals with software that is simple but sophisticated, and provides a common and shared approach for improving workforce effectiveness.”
Key features of DataTalent include:
Integration of Information across HR
DataTalent enables HR to combine data from virtually any data source-- including HRIS, SaaS workforce applications, Excel spreadsheets and Access databases-- for a comprehensive view of their organization. Time is saved because this process no longer requires manual, and often error-prone, consolidation; and the integration of desktop spreadmarts increases the security and validity of information.
Data Extension—Embracing Workforce Data
In many HR departments, use of spreadsheets runs rampant because key data elements are not tracked in the systems of record. These spreadsheets pose a security risk and have the potential to create a versioning nightmare. DataTalent solves this problem by allowing users to “extend” their data, adding the details that are relevant to getting their job done, but which is not currently being tracked elsewhere. All data is safely managed in DataTalent and extended data is clearly marked as added data.
User-Obvious Interface for the Workforce
Through use of eThority’s paradigm-breaking “user-obvious” interface for DataTalent’s front-end, data access and reporting are no longer restricted to the IT department or technical experts. DataTalent empowers users of all skill levels to create insightful reports and glean meaningful information from their HR and organizational data, with little or no training required.
Workforce Analytics Dashboards
DataTalent provides a comprehensive dashboarding component called DashPoint, which keeps key KPI’s and workforce analytics at the user’s fingertips. To dig deeper into any analytic element on the DashPoint panel, users can drill down to view the detail. Dashboards are user-created, so they are built around the measures that are most important to the user’s role(s) within the organization; making them relevant and meaningful, and giving executives the ability to make blink-assessments.
Using compelling data visualization, DataTalent takes HR benchmarking to a whole new level. Employees can be compared to their peers to ensure that their pay matches their performance, and goals can be set and tracked against for up-to-the-minute performance reviews. Organizations have the ability to create internal benchmarks, as well as incorporate data from external sources to benchmark against industry standards.
DataTalent grew out of the realization that the reporting and workforce analytics needs of HR departments were going largely unserved by traditional providers, and that eThority’s user-obvious performance engine could fill that gap. DataTalent is a workforce performance engine designed from the ground up to help HR deliver intuitive workforce analytics, reporting and benchmarking of key metrics. Powered by eThority, DataTalent helps HR leverage workforce performance management to meet and exceed corporate business objectives. It is on display May 3rd and 4th at the IHRIM HRMStrategies Conference in Las Vegas at booth #408. To learn more, please visit http://www.DataTalent.com.
