LinkedIn is introducing its Deep Sales Platform. The professional network has launched its first deep sales platform which has opened up a new category of business-to-business (B2B) sales intelligence technology. According to the company, the technology is claimed to be a breakthrough solution for businesses as it learns from data to make predictions and recommendations at a scale that may not be possible for sellers to achieve on their own.

The deep sales launch came after a global research by LinkedIn, which revealed that only 20% of buyers are in-market for services in a given year and that makes understanding buyer intent critical for all sellers. Learn more about ‘the new superpower for sellers and commercial organizations’ here.

LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky shared his vision for the future of talent and training. Roslansky and Byron Auguste, CEO of Opportunity@Work, expessed their opinion on employers’requirements by hiring process in an article by CNN. Their focus was the higher education and its demand by the HR specialists and companies managers. Although Ryan and Byron admit that a degree is an achievement, they claim the reality is that with the current pace of technological change, everyone needs to continuously expand their skills, especially as industries keep changing.

‘We’ve started to see signs of a shift on LinkedIn, with job postings that don’t have degree requirements up from 15% in January 2020 to 20% so far this year. And HR teams are increasingly looking beyond who you know or what school you attended to find great talent, with 40% of hirers on LinkedIn explicitly using skills data to fill their roles’, claims Roslansky.
