We Enhance Your Data Via a Common Skills Language 

Most organizations only have insight into their own company data when it comes to skills—they have no reference to external data, industry trends or supply and demand information. Lightcast helps to make sense of your internal data and connect it to our open taxonomy so you can see external insights layered on top of your own internal data. 

Lightcast will connect you to a world of data that will normalize and elevate your existing skills data to give you a common skills language.
