UNIFIED TALENT MANAGEMENT In a market that has markedly shifted over the last few years towards large, generalist ERP suites and mixed delivery models, it has become quite clear that Cornerstone OnDemand is truly different. Different by design. Different by delivery. Cornerstone OnDemand is the leading best-of-breed, organically grown Talent Management solution on the market today - not a distant ancestor of a clunky ERP system that was built to do something other than manage, measure and retain your people. Since 1999, Cornerstone's software has been delivered via the cloud and has impacted end-users throughout the employee lifecycle. The lumbering ERP companies have taken to offering talent management solutions that have been cobbled together from mergers and acquisitions of the last few years. They are "reconciling their software portfolios" and patching it all together with 'middleware' and 'custom integrations'. Some of us believe that these labels are really just cosmetics that give the appearance of modernization and the look of a true cloud application. Do not be fooled. Executives and HR technology managers will learn from this whitepaper what the difference and benefits between having a truly organic and unified suite of talent management applications is versus a costly integrated piece-by-pieced system that is just labeled 'cloud'. INTRODUCTION Lots of analysts speculate that this market will become dominated by the ERP providers. Not true. I firmly believe this market is far too big and moving far too fast for the ERP providers to dominate. Yes, we all want our talent management tools integrated into our other core HR systems - but the "space" is moving too fast for ERP vendors to keep up. Not only are there 200+ LMS vendors today, but we predict an explosion of new tools for social recruiting, sourcing, analytics, real-time engagement and feedback, and social recognition. These HR software categories will all eventually "converge" into the talent management system, keeping the market exciting and alive. JOSH BERSIN
