Enterprise Solution Offers the Industry’s Only No-Cost Workforce Analytics, Dashboarding and Reporting for the HR Market.

"The ZCL will change the way that HR uses workforce analytics, moving it beyond the progressive few organizations that are currently leveraging this advantage, and providing it to an infinitely broader audience,” said Mike Psenka, eThority Pres. & CEO.

eThority, the provider of a user-obvious performance engine for reporting and analytics, today unveils the Zero-Cost License (ZCL) for their Workforce Analytics package, DataTalent. This game-changing announcement was made at the 13th Annual HR Technology Conference® in Chicago. Based on their CODiE-Award winning platform, the ZCL delivers workforce analytics, customizable dashboarding, and interactive reporting for 500 users with enterprise security and compliance, all with no license cost. The ZCL is the most robust, comprehensive zero-cost business intelligence and analytics offering in existence, and the only workforce analytics offering available at no cost to users.

DataTalent provides HR with an easy-to-use solution for their workforce analytics , reporting and metrics initiatives. By integrating data from core HR systems with other relevant data from across the enterprise, users are no longer forced to manually combine this information for reporting. Instead, users can create personalized and interactive dashboards with automated report delivery. This helps share insight with their organizational executives—proving their impact on the bottom line and the success of their initiatives. The Zero-Cost License opens the door, for the first time in many cases, for organizations to connect their data ecosystem and deliver enterprise-class workforce analytics to HR departments that previously lacked the budget, or who were waiting for their current vendors to provide state of the art reporting and analysis.

“eThority has chosen to offer the revolutionary Zero-Cost License for DataTalent because of the belief that HR organizations deserve access to their data,” said Mike Psenka, eThority President and CEO. “Software should not be prohibitively expensive or overly complicated. Data should be easy to extract from applications for reporting and further analysis—the ZCL provides that access for DataTalent customers and for our Alliance partners. The ZCL will change the way that HR uses workforce analytics, moving it beyond the progressive few organizations that are currently leveraging this advantage, and providing it to an infinitely broader audience.”

The ZCL for DataTalent includes these unique features :

  • Data ecosystem –

The ZCL allows users to connect to an unlimited number of data sources from enterprise data systems, desktop data sources, and cloud sources. This means that previously siloed data held in an organization’s HRMS, Applicant Tracking, Recruiting, Payroll, etc. applications can now be combined into a single application for reporting and analysis. And, once the data connections are configured, the automation engine makes sure the data is connected, collected and directed--automatically.

  • “User-obvious” reporting:

DataTalent’s user interface utilizes progressive disclosure, QuickTutor videos and a robust help system, to make the application self-teaching. Users require little to no training to get up and running with their data.

  • Interactive visualizations

The ZCL includes eLectric Graph™, a progressive, dynamic data graphics engine, as well as eValuate, data visualization columns that compare one record in a dataset to its peers for at-a-glance analysis. These data-rich graphics allow users to get answers faster and gain new insight.

  • Clear, concise dashboards:

Users author, publish and view dashboards from a “user-obvious” interface. Information-rich dashboards can be automated and shared up the chain to executives and to the front lines. This improves performance, communication and collaboration. Plus, triggered alerts can be set to notify team members of critical changes occurring daily in the enterprise. Workforce analytics dashboards keep executives effortlessly engaged in HR initiatives.

  • World-class enterprise security:

eThority offers unprecedented flexibility and depth with its Enterprise Security Engine. Data is secured easily by role (RBAC), function, or organization level (HBAC). And, data collaboration is possible through Content Based Access Control (CBAC). Single-sign-on, and more are also included in the ZCL, allowing the solution to easily scale throughout the organization.

A simple application process grants the use of the Zero-Cost License. The purpose of this is to ensure that the DataTalent Zero-Cost License is used to solve real problems, and that every deployment will be a success. Those interested in receiving a license for up to 500 users inside their organization, can stop by the eThority® DataTalent™ booth #222 at the HR Technology Conference or visit our ZCL webpage to learn more.
