SAP Fieldglass is putting machine learning to work to help executives plan, predict and simulate external talent scenarios.
SAP Fieldglass Live Insights, which is powered by SAP HANA, is the product of a partnership with SAP Data Network. Organisations can use the solution to benchmark market rates, hiring cycle times and supplier performance using SAP Fieldglass data and trusted third-party data that has been aggregated, anonymised and normalised. Employee data can also be uploaded into the solution to gain visibility of their talent across channels in real time.
“With access to the most robust data via SAP Fieldglass Live Insights, our customers can analyse and make decisions at speed about their external talent – arguably one of their most valuable assets – as they race to become more competitive in every aspect of their business,” said Rob Brimm, president, SAP Fieldglass.
“SAP Fieldglass Live Insights is the latest example of our commitment to help organisations transform how work gets done in a digital world where companies must move quickly to activate their workforce strategies and secure the talent that best suits their needs.”
According to SAP, having insight into where to source the right skills at the most competitive rates and being able to requisition that talent will allow organisations to conduct cost-benefit analysis in real time informing external talent decisions, determining competitive rates for talent that is needed to launch a new product or service, and identify the optimal time to release requisitions for striking a balance between lead time and cost.
“With SAP Fieldglass Live Insights, we were able to put the extracted value of ready-to-analyse transactional data into the hands of our customers for the first time in a way that is immediately actionable for their external workforce strategies, helping to keep our customers one step ahead of the fight for talent,” said Helen Arnold, president, SAP Data Network.
