LAS VEGAS, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Peoplefluent®, a leading social human capital management technology company, today launched Peoplefluent Colossus, a comprehensive data integration cloud platform that allows customers to leverage critical data from across multiple organizational and departmental sources to optimize talent analytics and organizational performance. Peoplefluent's new data integration cloud is unlike any data management or integration effort within the Human Capital Management arena today and dramatically expedites Talent Management solution deployment, while significantly reducing integration, maintenance and upgrade costs. By easing the complexity associated with data integration, HR professionals and business executives will have access to the workforce data they need – when and where they need it – to make better informed, strategic business decisions.

"Our research shows that large organizations have seven or more different systems managing HR data," said Josh Bersin, founder of Bersin, now known as Bersin by Deloitte, and a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Bringing this data together for meaningful analysis has become mission-critical, driving tremendous demand for integration tools to help rationalize, integrate and analyze people-related data."

In addition to providing access to expanded data sources across the organization and a broad set of new functional integrations with a wide array of different applications, the Colossus platform will propel and facilitate the implementation of Peoplefluent's Talent Management product suite. Data integration has typically been an inhibitor to the full potential of unified Talent Management. Today, Peoplefluent, the first to market five years ago with a fully integrated Talent Management suite and the only one to market with an integration and implementation solution of this nature, is the catalyst for sweeping industry change. Colossus shifts time spent away from complex integrations and configurations to strategic decision making.

"The launch of our groundbreaking the Colossus data integration cloud is the direct result of key customer feedback and deep and focused investment in research and development over the last year," said Jeff Carr, president and CEO of Peoplefluent. "With this news, we are not only delivering customers the most integrated and comprehensive Talent Management solution available in the marketplace today, we are also ensuring an even more powerful organizational impact for line of business and HR leaders who can now access and analyze the full spectrum of talent data to comprehensively, accurately and successfully change business outcomes."

When used alongside its Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) integration framework, Peoplefluent can deliver unified Talent Management solutions that feature seamless data integration paired with single sign-on (SSO) functionality and consolidated navigation. Colossus provides intelligent rules-based data cleansing capabilities, data replication services and new integration tools with open standards to pull disparate data from Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, XML web services and on-premise solutions such as ERP, flat file and payroll applications. Colossus enables Peoplefluent customers to:

  • Connect: Communication and secure sharing of data across on-premise and cloud applications
  • Configure: Intuitive, browser-based interface used to easily configure and monitor services
  • Process: Design, model, execute, monitor and optimize processes spanning across applications
  • Automate: Automated task monitoring in relation to promised completion and proactive alerting of exceptions

Peoplefluent has outlined several practical use cases in which data from third party systems would be vital to an integrated Talent Management solution. For example, payroll information pulled into compensation and performance management systems could help ensure top performers are most appropriately compensated; integration of product development or sales data with recruiting management systems enables hiring managers and HR teams to better prepare for growth periods.

Peoplefluent is showcasing the Colossus data integration cloud at the HR Technology Conference and Exposition this week in Las Vegas. For a preview, please visit Peoplefluent at booth #1201.
