SaaS HR Market Landscape in 2012 SaaS is growing fast! SaaS is a $21B global market in 2012 (Gartner). 83% of all companies expect to adopt SaaS (IDC). There is pent p demand for HR solutions! pent-up sol tions! HR systems is a $10B worldwide market, growing at CAGR 8% to 22% depending upon module (Forrester). Versus the USA, European organizations have much lower adoption of HR solutions integrated with payroll and benefits administration (61% vs. 92% in US organizations via CedarCrestone).While the market for big companies is saturated with executives debating the merits ofadopting/upgrading to SaaS, the biggest market opportunity for SaaS is the small business(more than a million registered businesses) and the mid-market (100,000 companies).Beyond the initial on-demand and affordability benefits of SaaS, adoption is accelerated by the availability of access/try/use additional productsand services much like an app store. Also driving SaaS HR adoption is the growth and demand for bundled (multi-process, multi-function)outsourced solutions such as Workforce Management (WFM) and Human Capital Management (HCM). These outsourcing solutions represent alarge market due to limited overall penetration in the small & medium sized businesses (~50% of all business). In secondary and tertiarymarkets, enterprise providers with their “bundled” outsource service offerings are not present. With this unsatisfied demand, there is anopportunity for accelerated organic revenue growth (18%-22% per year).For larger enterprises, there is a short-list of software providers depending on whether a company opts for an ERP (business managementsystem for enterprise resource planning), a core HRMS including the TM suite (talent management), and then adds-on “point specific solutions”to fit their unique needs. While the market for larger enterprises, has consolidated to a few dozen major global players, the small and mid-market i hi hl f k t is highly fragmented. t dUsing EPM (Employee Performance Management), which is greater than a $1B worldwide market, as an example to show that the HR technologymarket continues to grow, consolidate and evolve, consider that EPM started as a stand-alone application and is now readily available as part ofan ERP, part of an HRMS, or as a single application. In 2005, Gartner recognized 27 Performance Management Vendors. In 2009, by Ephor’scount, there were 60 vendors with specialized industry solutions with active clients, but in 2011 there were only 17 remaining that had asignificant number of clients. Between 2010 and 2012, there were more than 30 major acquisitions in the talent management software marketalone,alone and nearly every solution provider launched several new offerings Now starting in 2012 large corporations including SAP and Oracle are offerings. Now, 2012,focused on HR SaaS. The market demand for HR solutions, coupled with the deployment economics and profitability of the SaaS model, hastriggered an industry consolidation. Now, there are only a few large corporate leaders with impressive technology and client lists; on the otherend of the spectrum, there are small business startups looking to emerge.During 2012, emerging technology providers capitalizing on new client demands (social goals, mobile, etc.) will start to solve the small businessand global market gap.
