Harness Big Data for Smarter Workforce Decisions

As job markets heat up, HR organizations are once again focused on attracting and retaining talent. Now, thanks to Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, HR leaders can leverage a wide range of previously untapped data sources to drive smarter workforce decisions.

As digital information sources continue to proliferate, organizations are leaving a rich array of employee information untapped, including

  • External Websites
  • Social media
  • Job boards
  • Text-based human resource transactions in legacy systems
  • Unstructured documents in content management systems

"With Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, HR professionals can tap into these sources for an unfiltered glimpse into the pulse of their workforce. They can capture simple, employee-generated ideas for improving the work environment and even discover why top performers may be leaving their organizations," says Sophia Tseng, product marketing director, Oracle Endeca Information Discovery.

Finding Root Causes in Unstructured Data
Oracle Endeca Information Discovery enables exploration of the diverse unstructured data that lies beyond traditional business analytics systems. Tools such as text enrichment, sentiment analysis, intelligent search, and contextual navigation make this possible.

And thanks to the hybrid search/analytical database at the core of Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, IT can load diverse data sources, configure easy-to-use applications, and iteratively expand them—all in a fraction of the time traditionally required to conform complex and ever-changing unstructured data.

With Oracle Endeca Information Discovery, HR professionals can

  • Understand the voice and sentiment of the workforce. Natural-language queries provide insight into the effectiveness of strategic and tactical HR decisions such as career changes, organizational realignment, compensation adjustments, training, and a host of other significant HR events.
  • Identify the root causes behind events and exceptions. By combining structured and unstructured data from both internal and external sources, HR organizations can discover root causes—with minimal IT intervention.
  • Supercharge existing business analytics investments. With unscripted exploration of workforce data and full-featured search, navigation, and interactive analytics, HR organizations can leverage, improve, and extend existing investments in workforce analytics and HCM applications.
