132 The Art of the Possible: Extend Your Talent Management Technology with APIs
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PT
Monday, November 15
How many times have you heard someone in your organization proclaim, “If only our system did X, then we would be able to do Y”? The initial investment businesses make to get any talent ecosystem up and running is significant, and it is imperative that the business see impact for many years to come. But let’s face it, businesses don’t standstill. The processes and requirements that the system was configured to meet three years ago (or even three months ago) may completely change overnight, meaning that you must resort to workarounds and manual processes to make your technology work.
Now’s not the time to throw in the towel. Your existing platforms can keep pace with the evolving needs of your business. The answer lies in understanding the network of APIs and web services available to extend the life (and functionality) of your talent management technology.
In this session, you will learn:
- What APIs and web services are and how can they extend your talent management technology
- How have other organizations solved unique challenges using these tools
- How to get started assessing the possibilities for your business
