Document Management System (DMS)

Document management systems (DMS) assist with the management, creation, workflow, and storage of documents within different departments. A DMS stores documents in a database and associates important information about the documents, to the documents (known as metadata). Most systems provide workflow engines to design and support document creation, publication, and usage. DMS solutions are often used by insurance and health care industries, government bodies, or other organizations processing high volumes of documents.

TEC 2014 HCM Buyer’s Guide for Medium and Large Enterprises


How do you treat humans as capital? The concept of human capital depends on its two parts: what we understand by “human” and what defines something as “capital.” The supporting technology then is a shape-giving agent to what human capital management (HCM) or human resources (HR) departments can become.

This buyer’s guide examines high-level features and functions offered by HCM technology vendors. It underlines the market tension between a tendency to consolidate various aspects of HCM technology into one suite and the best-of-breed approach to tackling HCM requirements. Additionally, it explores new niche-oriented technologies.

The product comparison included in this guide consists of information supplied by vendors of HCM solutions. The chart is intended to inform users about how vendors position themselves in the market as well as reveal some of their partner ecosystems. We acknowledge that there are many other vendors and products in the market, but we are able to include only a limited number in the product comparison chart.

This guide also includes discussions on how contemporary leadership models tackle global challenges, the prevalent perspective on workforce as talent versus “non-talent” and how businesses can shift toward a more fluent view of the workforce, and the new role of learning in realizing business goals.

Lastly, the buyer’s guide presents a range of real-life case studies that highlight client successes and thought leadership about relevant HCM issues and challenges, and the solutions vendors are offering to address them.

But most importantly, this guide invites us to imagine—beyond simple HCM/HR goals and accomplishments—an economy that continuously redefines the intersection of “human” and “capital.” Gabriel García Márquez recognized “that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”* We pay tribute to Márquez in these pages as a reminder that inspiration in our careers and business can come from any human endeavour—and this inspiration is ultimately what challenges the HCM technology market to stay vibrant.

Full-suite HCM versus Best-of-breed Software Solutions



In human capital management (HCM), like in most other areas of enterprise software, buyers are often confused by the choice between a full suite and a best-of-breed solution. But, is this confusion a construct resulting from vendors positioning themselves as either conquerors or underdogs? The full suite is generally understood as consisting of core human resources (HR), talent management, and workforce management. Best-of-breed solutions typically offer functionality and service that focus on one of the three areas.

Buyers report that they hesitate between wanting to have all HCM software capabilities under a greater-scope solution—preferably their current enterprise resource planning (ERP) system—and an attractive, flexible, and deep best-of-breed HCM software option. However, the idea that a company can benefit only from one and must sacrifice the other may be erroneous. For example, software as a service (SaaS) appears to be a robust and reliable model for integrating best-of-breed solutions with larger systems.

In addition, competing vendors with modular software products propose offerings that are diverse—in their technology and product formulations, and also in their partnerships with other enterprise software vendors. Although to date vendors have not generally been going into a selection project with competing partners, this may be the case in the future, if the marketplace moves towards a more open market. For instance, on the same bid, one would be able to see a CSOD + ADP package and a CSOD + Workday package competing side by side.

So, a company does not have to be consumed by having to make a definitive choice on full suite versus best-of-breed HCM. Depending on the company’s culture, competing human resources (HR) priorities, and evolution, companies do not have to fear taking advantage of the core HR functionality present in their current ERP system when starting out. In most cases, there will later be the option of adding more systems to its portfolio of HCM software solutions, thanks to vendors presently being more open to the idea than in the past.

One of the major challenges when acquiring HCM enterprise software is to strike the right balance; companies often end up buying either more than they actually need or not enough. Buying more is seen as incurring unnecessary costs and risking low adoption. Yet providing less to buyers at the outset means requiring add-ons and third-party solutions to compensate for the insufficient initial offering—these imply costly and complicated integration by either in-house information technology (IT) personnel and/or vendors.
