Cool Vendors in Human Capital Management

Transforming Talent to Drive the Digital Workplace

We believe that a company's strategy is its plan to achieve its most important goals. Strategy execution means aligning work with the company's plan and goals. One of the most critical parts of doing that is aligning the workforce with the work that needs to get done. Yet, many companies fail to execute their strategies because they lack visibility into the work that needs to be done and into the people, both inside and outside of the company, who have the right skills and capabilities.

This Gartner report Cool Vendors in Human Capital Management: Transforming Talent to Drive the Digital Workplace, which includes Catalant as a Cool Vendor in the category, states how “A lack of insight regarding skills required and skills that will be retired as a result of the digital workplace is creating challenges for organizations that wish to plan with accurate predictions for the digital workplace.” The report also finds that “Talent mobility remains cumbersome despite widespread adoption of workforce management and project planning tools.” Finally, the report argues that “Changing workforce characteristics – such as the rise of the gig economy – have been overlooked by traditional human capital management (HCM) technology. This significantly impairs the ability of workplaces to become fully digitized and keep pace with knowledge worker environments.”

Crossing Catagories to Bridge Strategy and Execution

In our view, a mention in Gartner’s research is a validation of a technology company’s vision and ability to deliver for its customers. We were delighted to be mentioned in eight different research reports in 2019 and 2020, including four different Hype Cycle reports and this Cool Vendors report.*

We’re grateful for Gartner’s continued acknowledgment. More importantly, though, we’re convinced that our representation across different topics and categories is evidence of something bigger: we’re part of a new category of software that bridges the gap between strategy and execution.

We believe that strategy execution sits at the center of what a company does, how it works, and the people who make it happen. Catalant is purpose-built to help companies organize strategic work, access and allocate the people needed to do it, and track progress against what they set out to achieve.
