Palo Alto, California, August 29, 2022– (work wire) –SkyHive®Today, the first company to map and sequence the global labor market in real time for workforce intelligence, strategy, and architecture, as well as rapidly reskill workers and communities around the world, today announced the launch of SkyHive Platform, a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution. The first for skills for public and private sector institutions.

Real-time use of SkyHive labor market intelligence and AI to analyze global job markets at a skill level, SkyHive employers gain external intelligence as well as instant insights into their talents, such as emerging gaps and skills that can be leveraged to future-proof their workforce, retain talent, and understand evolving labor market needs.

The SkyHive platform enriches existing Human Capital Management (HCM) systems with scalable Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to integrate with core HR systems such as a work dayand Microsoft and SAP SuccessFactors, as well as custom applications. By doing so, the SkyHive Platform enables businesses and communities to reap maximum value from HCM investments while improving performance and cost effectiveness through talent acquisition and retention, and workforce training. Businesses and governments seeking insights into the state of business skills critical to their workforce, skills gaps, attrition, sourcing, standards, future talent needs, and recommendations for reskilling can harness SkyHive to run apps with or without SkyHive Foundation Software applications.

“Skills are the ‘currency’ of talent in the modern age, so it is only natural that leaders are eager to have a comprehensive, comparative, and real-time view of the skills of their workforce,” said Sean Hinton, founder and CEO of SkyHive. “We have built the SkyHive Platform and opened our APIs in response to the demands of customers around the world who want to customize applications and update their existing HCM platforms with the most in-depth workforce and job market information available.”
