The world of talent acquisition, also referred to as recruiting, has been turned upside-down in the past few years by new paradigms for talent sourcing and candidate engagement, a technological environment that embraces transparency, recruiting vendors that have been slow to adopt new approaches, and significant M&A activity. Unless organizations adopt new methods of finding, interacting with, and moving candidates through the hiring process, they will miss many qualified applicants. This report analyzes the characteristics and dynamics of the market for talent acquisition technology and examines the use of social tools to find candidates. Finally, it helps application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals navigate the landscape of recruiting vendors, including human resource management (HRM) suite vendors with a talent acquisition offering, standalone recruiting vendors, and niche players with innovative add-ons.
