Today companies buy these systems to help transform their talent strategies and directly improve employee engagement and the ability to hire.  Our best estimates show that more than 450 million people around the world could license and use corporate HR software, yet only 55-60 million seats have been sold. So this market is still young. And every year new categories are created (social sourcing, for example), enabling the market to expand in size.

Every second, at least two more people join LinkedIn’s network of 238 million members.

They are head hunters. They are the talent in search of a job. And sometimes, the career site for the professional class is just a hangout for the well-connected worker.

LinkedIn, using complex algorithms, analyses their profiles and site behaviour to steer them to opportunity. And corporations parse that data to set business strategy. As the network grows, LinkedIn’s trove of information also grows more comprehensive.

5 ways companies are using big data to help their customers ... | Big data in recruitment | Scoop.it

While companies of all industries can better understand their customers and provide better service with the help of big data, there’s more work to be done beyond simply collecting customer data. Companies that use big data well excel in sorting through the white noise of data, filtering out the relevant information and drawing insight from its analysis.

Big data can certainly be valuable, but only with actionable insight.
