Market Guide focused on Talent Acquisition Applications released by Gartner, Separating Recruiting from HR Technologies

HOLMDEL, N.J. [December 21, 2018] – Gartner’s Market Guide dedicated to talent acquisition applications, released on Dec. 18, 2018, lists iCIMS as a Representative Vendor.

From our perspective, Gartner’s Market Guide focused on talent acquisition will help human resource and talent acquisition leaders stay ahead of recruiting trends and technology, such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, programmatic advertising, texting, and evaluate the best solution providers for their business. There is an arms race underway to find better ways to attract great talent. By separating talent acquisition from its talent and workforce management Market Guides, we believe that Gartner is enabling chief human resource officers to understand the increased expectations of candidates, and the distinct technology providers transforming recruitment.

“Talent acquisition should not be lumped in with human capital management systems since recruiting is more like marketing than other HR functions because we source, attract, inspire and engage people,” said Colin Day, iCIMS founder and chief executive officer. “As the leading best-in-class recruiting solution provider, we know that the jack-of-all-trades HR payroll and talent management providers do not understand the complexity, nor recruiting needs, of global organizations. In our view, Gartner’s Market Guide helps organizations understand the value of integrating a purpose-built talent acquisition solution into their HR system.”

“Evaluate how your TA strategy connects with your HCM, talent, digital business and other critical application strategies. Use caution when selecting appropriate vendors, as the TA market will continue to evolve rapidly over the next two to three years,” wrote Jason Cerrato, senior director analyst at Gartner, and Jeff Freyermuth, senior principal analyst at Gartner.
