  • KPI and dashboard library: Delivers a rich set of more than 50 HR KPIs, dashboards and reports for key HR metrics including workforce composition, turnover and retention, and team effectiveness to help HR teams gain faster insights. Pre-built KPIs include:

“To deliver value, analytics must impact a business process. Analytic applications support business processes directly by delivering a variety of different types of analysis packaged as solutions targeting specific processes, and specific groups of business users. They cover various functions. Some support industry-agnostic business processes such as procurement, which some are industry-specific,” said Gartner analysts Alys Woodward and Gareth Herschel.
