Core HR Market Definitions and Forecast Assumptions

Human capital management includes such functions as eRecruiting (applicant tracking), Onboarding (employee profile), Performance Management (assessment, goal management, succession planning), Core HR (personnel administration, benefits, compensation management, payroll), Workforce Management (absence management, activity tracking, scheduling, time and attendance), and eLearning (learning management system). For complete definition, please see below or visit our Taxonomy page.

Drivers behind the growth of Core HR applications market include

  1. Companies, especially those that operate in multiple countries, are searching for a system of record to minimize attrition, groom talented employees, while addressing complicated compliance requirements.
  2. Digital transformation in response to new user demands, market forces.
  3. Restructuring of HR processes to accelerate for next decade.
  4. Heavily modified Core HR systems entail rising costs
  5. Employers are reevaluating performance management process by giving workers continuous feedback with consistent and transparent metrics

Inhibitors include the following trends that cut across multiple Core HR segments:

  1. HR analytics fall short of expectations
  2. Potential changes to Affordable Care Act and other key legislations could undermine HCM’s near-term growth. Shifting regulatory and compliance demands prompt stopgap measures.
  3. For eLearning vendors, expanding a content library is a challenge. The same applies to fending off the ubiquity of Youtube and Lynda from LinkedIn. The issue is whether users are better off with courseware or do-it-yourself microlearning development tools.
  4. Eroding trust in the workplace, lack of employee engagement; Bring Your Own Device trend engenders Core HR system distrust as well.

The move toward continuous, ad-hoc and spontaneous feedback process will entail micro services that assimilate project management and team collaboration, requiring HR performance management apps vendors to combine personalized evaluation and unstructured communication. The challenge is to deliver tangible benefits for small work groups, while still using the same metrics to drive process improvement for the entire organization.

The HCM Top 500 report series covers more than 3,000 pages of content, make sure that you don’t miss any of the 500+ profiles by becoming a subscriber. Or you can catch the highlights with the following links:


Similar to any of the hundreds of reports that we have published since 2010, HCM Top 500 is a labor of love. Since 2013, our team of researchers have been conducting rigorous research on thousands of HCM vendors, surveying them quarterly, reviewing their products at even shorter intervals because of the compressed Cloud release cycle, and discussing HR vision with their customers to better understand user needs as well as different paths to upgrade and replace their existing systems.

Each year we also attend many industry-wide and vendor-specific user conferences – HR Tech, Dreamforce, SAPPHIRENOW, Oracle Open World, just to name a few, to gauge what customers are looking for.

Throughout this process comes a rich database of more than 2,000 HCM vendors as well as over 50,000 HCM customers that have been touched one form or another through regular surveys, phone and in-person interviews, email exchanges, and social media interactions, etc.

On a proactively basis, we contact the vendors directly to tabulate their latest quarterly and annual revenues by HCM segment, vertical market, revenue type, region, country and customer size.

We supplement their written responses with our own primary research to determine quarterly and yearly growth rates in each of the 22 segments and 21 verticals, in addition to customer wins to ascertain whether these are net new purchases or expansions of existing implementations.

Another dimension of our quantitative research process is through continuous improvement of our customer database, which stores more than one million records on the enterprise software landscape of over 100,000 organizations around the world.

The database provides customer insight and contextual information on what types of HCM, enterprise software systems and other relevant technologies are they running and their propensity to invest further with their current or new suppliers as part of their overall HCM and IT transformation projects to stay competitive, fend off threats from disruptive forces, or comply with internal mandates to improve overall enterprise efficiency.

The result is a combination of supply-side data and demand-generation customer insight that allows our clients to better position themselves in anticipation of the next wave that will reshape the HCM marketplace for years to come.
