EdCast recently announced the launch of a comprehensive add-on to its Learning Experience Platform, SkillsDNA to improve the End-to-end Employee Experience (EX) across the enterprise in response to the increasing need for enhanced skills. SkillsDNA from EdCast provides businesses new approaches to assessing skills across industries and organizations as well as evaluating capabilities at the individual, team, and enterprise levels.

Bhaskar Deka, VP and Global Head of Products at EdCast, said, “Organizations face more and growing challenges today in assessing and deploying high-demand skills in a rapidly-changing business world. Our customers have consistently asked for higher-quality granular data and improved processes to help drive their skills and talent development efforts and maximize competitiveness. With the launch of AI-powered SkillsDNA within EdCast’s learning and talent experience platform, we can now deliver to enterprises a customized, purpose-built, and easy-to-use skills operating system to help them meet their talent needs.”

The SkillsDNA platform offers a unified architecture that allows organizations to effectively normalize skills, find learning assets relevant to their needs, and surface them at the point of need. The EdCast Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology identifies, locates, tracks, and connects skills across learning objects and multiple dimensions with HRTech and learning environments. The SkillsDNA and EdCast Learning Exchange Platform form a solid integration that enables talent owners and managers to plan their talent development strategies effectively and explore reskilling and upskilling options in real-time.

Josh Bersin, Global Industry Analyst, commented, “SkillsTech has become one of the biggest markets in HR, enabling companies to build skills databases everywhere. SkillsDNA by EdCast is the first family of tools I’ve seen that can help companies design and manage these systems and build an integrated Skills System of Record.”

Business leaders can now leverage EdCast’s AI-powered LXP and SkillsDNA to build an organization-wide approach to managing talent by leveraging rigid and generalized taxonomies that can quickly become outdated.
