California-based talent management software provider, Cornerstone OnDemand, is launching Cornerstone Analytics, a suite of cloud-based people analytics applications designed to help organisations manage their workforces more effectively and to meet their business objectives more efficiently.

Cornerstone Analytics applies data science and machine learning to help organisations harness the power of real-time workforce data. By unlocking descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive data analytics, Cornerstone helps organisations to make smarter, more strategic, data-driven talent decisions and removes their historic reliance on guesswork and intuition.

“We’re bringing the powerful data science models to the world of HR that mega industries such as retail, finance and energy rely on to make the smartest decisions possible,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO, Cornerstone OnDemand.

The suite is built on a massive network of shared talent data, representing more than 16 years of workforce management activity across 25 million users in nearly 2700 organisations across all industries and seven talent management dimensions: recruiting, onboarding, training and development, performance management, compensation management, succession planning and workplace collaboration.

The suite comprises Cornerstone View, Cornerstone Planning and Cornerstone Insights, along with Cornerstone Reporting.

Cornerstone View is a simple, easy-to-use interactive data visualisation application that gives organisations deeper insight into their people. Functions include the ability to search, filter and compare people across multiple categories such as location, division, performance and tenure.

Cornerstone Planning is a workforce planning application that enables organisations to improve their workforce planning in alignment with budgets and to generate forecasts for both expenses and future resource gaps. The application enables users to easily create, manage and execute accurate hiring plans over multiple time horizons.

Cornerstone Insights is a predictive and prescriptive analytics solution, revamped with two new dashboards for career mobility and learning optimisation, to provide organisations with the intelligence to better recruit, train, manage and develop their people.

Cornerstone Reporting is a set of self-service reporting tools and visually rich dashboards, enabling control of, and visibility into, Cornerstone system data.
