NEW YORK - Oct 04, 2017
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced the availability of Infor Team Dynamics, and its recognition at the 20th Annual HR Technology Conference as one of 2017's "Awesome New Technologies." Combining two of Infor's newest products, Infor Coleman, an artificial intelligence solution designed specifically for business users, and Infor Talent Science, a predictive behavioral analytics tool, Infor Team Dynamics will now extend the ability of Infor Talent Science to predict high potential talent based on not only their fit to the role, but also their fit to their new team and manager.
Over the past 17 years, Infor Talent Science has proven that a person's behaviors are a significant predictor of future performance in a role or business. Infor Team Dynamics now extends this prediction to incorporate another significant predictor of performance; how a candidate or manager will work effectively with the people closest to them.
"An individual's behavioral fit to a role is a significant factor in determining someone's propensity to stay and perform in a company," said Dr. Jill Strange, vice president, Infor HCM Science Applications. "However, it is not the only factor that drives retention and performance. Infor Team Dynamics enables us to maximize the effectiveness of our product suite by also considering the second largest factor of potential performance; how that person will 'fit' with the team and the manager."
Part of the Infor Talent Science suite, Infor Team Dynamics leverages a predictive analytics solution to select, align, and group employees based on their fit to each other and their manager. With Infor Team Dynamics, managers have the tools to assist them in finding the right people for the right role, and to also assist in putting the right people together to work effectively. By understanding how teams function and how individuals will work together on tasks, leaders can optimize the teams within their organization and make better decisions when forming and managing them. This product will enable companies to intelligently select and build high performing teams across their organization based on science. With a click of a mouse, managers will be given insight to detractors, promoters, champions, and allies and their ability to work together to outperform the competition.
"Teamwork is critical for any large organization, and it's important to select the right mix of people for each task and provide them the right tools and environment for achieving the desired results," continued Strange. "Organizations need to adopt modern technology to better understand the similarities and differences of current and potential team members from one another. Understanding how individuals interact in teams and how teams interact with each other is important for driving organizational outcomes and creating strong organizational culture and engagement."
For the second year in a row, Infor has been recognized as one of the "Awesome New Technologies" at the HR Technology conference, and both times it has been for infusing predictive analytics and artificial intelligence into new products and identifying new ways to predict future performance of talent. "Artificial Intelligence is changing the way we look at and manage talent," said Trish McFarlane, vice president, HCM Strategy, Infor. "Now, powerful new technologies are enabling us to consider numerous different elements and factors into our algorithms so that we can derive even greater predictability out of our models."
Infor Team Dynamics will be featured as part of this year's line-up for the "Awesome New Technologies for HR" session on October 11, 2017 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Venetian in Las Vegas at HR Tech. "Awesome New Technologies for HR" features live product demonstrations of the best new technology from every part of HR. Nominees undergo an extensive vetting process that results in a slate of outstanding industry leaders who take the stage to showcase their innovation.
