Raise your hand if you've been in recruiting and HR long enough to remember when Kenexa was the cat's pajamas. It wasn't that long ago. In 2005 Kenexa went public and grew rapidly through acquisitions like BrassRing and Salary.com.

Kenexa was ranked the #1 most popular Talent Management Solution in 2012 and 2013 with 9,000 customers and 30 million users. Back in 2011 I interviewed the then-CEO of Kenexa, Rudy Karsan, who co-authored a NYT bestselling book "We: How to Increase Performance and Profits Through Full Engagement," which you can still find on TotalPicture.com (see the side bar). And, let's face it, engagement is something many companies still struggle with.

In 2012, IBM bought Kenexa, which remains the foundation of many products geared to the HR and recruiting markets, like IBM Kenexa Talent Frameworks. Today I'm joined by Craig Shoneman, Director, Offering Management, IBM Talent Management Solutions. According to Craig's LinkedIn profile, he is "focused on disrupting the HR technology space by leveraging IBM Kenexa solutions and IBM Watson capabilities to help our clients attract, hire, and source talent and develop that talent in a unique way. Today, we're going to focus on two new products, IBM Watson Candidate Assistant and IBM Watson Recruitment.
