Best corporate expertise finder tools and service providers? #expertise-location
Jules Hugot, <jhugot@...>
Dear SIKM Leaders Community members,
I am an economist with the Asian Development Bank (ADB)—a multilateral development bank, similar to the World Bank, but with a focus on Asia.
We are looking to upgrade our internal people finder, which currently only displays staff’s name, office and phone number, job title and a photo. Instead of going through the usual HR/IT channel, our ‘innovation hub’ has launched an internal call for proposal, asking staffs to form teams combining people from different areas of the bank. As a member of one of these teams, I am looking to understand what are the state-of-the-art solutions for corporate people/expertise locators in the market, and which companies can best design and implement such tools. The next step would be to commission one of such companies for a pilot.
Our goal is to turn the current ‘people finder’ into a proper skill/expertise finder, while requiring as little effort as possible from staff (ideally none). For this, we would need a well-functioning search engine (e.g., that can understand mis-spelled names, for example), that would draw on data possibly pulled from:
Please let me know if you are aware of companies that could be able to help us design and implement the best possible internal expertise finder.
