Cornerstone OnDemand Positioned Among the Leaders in HerbertNathan’s HCM Market Report for Sweden, Denmark and Norway COPENHAGEN, 26 JUNE 2017 – Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based learning and human capital management software, today announced that it has been placed among the leaders according to the independent 2017 HerbertNathan & Co analyst grid for the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian HCM (Human Capital Management) markets. Independent analyst and consultant firm HerbertNathan & Co is the leading market analyst in Scandinavia for ERP and HCM systems. In their latest in-depth market report, they share insights on latest HR trends, as well as provide a detailed analysis of the leading HCM systems available on the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian markets. The systems were analysed according to extent and complexity of process, functionality as well as size of the organisation they cater for. The market grid offers a visual comparison of the different solutions and Cornerstone OnDemand is placed in the top righthand quadrant which is the high end regarding both process width and breadth as well as covering up to and including large enterprises. According to the report “The market is very vivid right now. We see a very high growth in the market (both in terms of new businesses and number of customers). The reason for this is that HR plays a central role in an organisation, and many companies have decided to select and implement an HCM system. Compared to the ERP market, 100 percent of all companies has an ERP system, but only approximately 15 to 20 percent of all companies have a “real” HCM system implemented. The trend is that most companies will want to source an HCM system. The digitisation of HR is currently on many management agendas.” One of the key tasks for most organisations in the coming year will be preparing for the new EU personal data protection regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in May 2018, but the report also describes how the HCM functional footprint is expanding, with more and deeper functionality into areas such as support for social media, mobility support, apps access and BI. The new functionality is often integrated and HerbertNathan & Co are expecting to see more complete HCM suites covering all HR processes in the future. Cornerstone has invested heavily in Europe recently to assist customers through the GDPR change, opening two new data centres and creating a team of Data Privacy Officers operating worldwide from Europe.
