People Analytics Platform

Track, analyse, adapt: unlock the full potential of your People Data

Transform your underused HR data into strategic gold 

Too often, People Data is locked into a HR & payroll system, with no easy way of putting it to work. People Analytics Platform is a single, instantly deployable framework to extract key HR data, combine it with data from across the organisation, analyse it, and realise its core strategic value. 

With our out-of-the-box solutions, you can finally track performance with ease, plan for what’s ahead and generate insights to enrich decision-making right across your organisation.

At a glance 

  • Powerful, self-service analytics for all iTrent users 
  • A cloud-based solution that takes just hours to deploy 
  • Integrates with your BI tools for joined-up decision making
  • Executive dashboard for tracking, analysis and sharing insights
  • Workforce planning starter pack for forecasting people costs


Chances are, you are already using the iTrent ecosystem to automate and improve HR processes. You may also be using our Managed Data Service offering or iTrent Reporting, such as BusinessObjects or Report Packs, to stay on top of operational and regulatory reporting.

iTrent’s HR and payroll solutions harness large volumes of data. Far from being a by-product, this data is a valuable strategic asset, so long as you have the ability to use it.

Driver of strategy

In areas such as board reporting and budget forecasting, once you combine People Data with data from across the wider business, HR is transformed from being an admin function into a major driver of strategy. 

Insights at your fingertips

Track KPIs, pinpoint costs and assess risks, all in one place. This will enable you to become proactive in your approach rather than reacting when something within the organisation occurs. 

Proof of HR’s value as a strategy powerhouse

Provide compelling evidence of how people impact organisational success. Reshape recruitment and retention policies to match business needs. Share your findings through compelling visualisations via Power BI to keep business leaders in the loop.

A clearer picture of performance

Extract and blend HR data with data from all corners of your business, for a joined-up picture of organisational performance. 

Maximise ROI on existing tech investments

Data sitting idly in your HR system along with wasted investment on Business Intelligence tools represents a huge wasted opportunity cost. Put it to work for the purposes of tracking, analytics and planning for maximum value. 

Big change - without a big IT headache

For many organisations, creating a platform to utilise or extract vast quantities of HR data was too difficult a task to contemplate. Not anymore. Our cloud-based model for iTrent can be configured in hours and deployed instantly.

How it works: People Analytics Data Model

People Analytics Platform structures your People Data into a core data model. This includes key data relating to performance, absence, recruitment, learning & development, pay & benefits, employee information and organisational structure. 

Model also provides the framework to release People Data from the iTrent system, combine it with other data (e.g. finance, operations, sales, marketing) and feed it into your existing analytics solution of choice. It opens up the ability to track, analyse and forecast using our pre-built Discover and Workforce Planning tools.


How it works: Discover

Discover provides organisations with all the HR and payroll insights needed at the click of a button. 

You will have instant access to 3 separate pre-built dashboards utilising  Power BI covering four key areas: Workforce, Payroll and Absence. Plug and play out of the box and customise or drill down in to your data with ease prioritising the metrics you need the most. 

Track all your KPIs and analyse trends,  in one place, with no need to worry about the burden of monthly data collection. Analyse trends in absenteeism, step in early to respond to flight risks, identify the attributes of high-performing employees and more.

How it works: Workforce Planning

Built in IBM Planning Analytics, Workforce Planning is designed to help you with financial planning and modelling of people costs. This can range from salary, maternity, pension costs to scenario modelling for budgeting. 

Many organisations still use Excel for their planning but this can lead to inaccurate data and countless hours wasted on changing and updating spreadsheets in different locations. With Workforce Planning all your financial planning and modelling is in one place and all data is pulled straight from iTrent so you know its accurate.
