Infosys today unveiled Infosys TalentEdge, a comprehensive talent management platform that deepens employee engagement. Infosys TalentEdge addresses the entire HR lifecycle helping companies streamline their HR processes and reduce operational costs. The platform is built on state-of-the-art technology and is delivered in the Cloud on an outcome-based pricing model.

Leading global enterprises, across industries, are already on their talent management journey with Infosys TalentEdge.

In the May 2011 report 'The Talent Management Suite Market Emerges' James Holincheck, research vice president at Gartner, observed, "Customers are increasingly using more talent management capabilities from a single vendor. Thus, a talent management suite market has emerged."

Infosys TalentEdge deepens employee interaction through rich social engagement and interactive self-service capabilities. The social collaboration features of the platform helps companies improve access to organization-wide expertise, generate ideas, and accelerate innovation. The platform also allows employees to access HR functionalities "on-the-go" through mobile and smart devices thereby enabling an always-connected workforce.

Infosys TalentEdge simplifies the entire Hire-to-retire lifecycle of the HR function. The platform brings together preconfigured, best-in-class industry processes that helps enterprises streamline HR operations and free up time spent on transactional HR activities such as payroll, attendance, benefits processing, etc. The Infosys TalentEdge platform is built on Oracle’s industry-leading PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM) Suite.

Delivered in the Cloud on an outcome-based pricing model, Infosys TalentEdge optimizes costs and delivers better spend predictability to the HR organization. This frees up significant capital expenditure typically locked into HR technology and process investments, allowing the HR function to be a strategic enabler of an organization’s business objectives. Infosys TalentEdge provides companies with the convenience of single point of accountability by taking complete ownership from technology to business operations.

Samson David, Vice President and Global Head - Business Platforms, Infosys said, "Infosys Edge business platforms in the cloud, is focused on accelerating business innovation for our clients across functions. Today HR organizations spend over 60% of their time on transactional HR activities leaving little time to focus on talent engagement.
