Say Bye to Taleo

On February 9, 2012, Oracle announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Taleo Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based talent management. The proposed transaction is subject to Taleo stockholder approval, certain regulatory approvals, and customary closing conditions and is expected to close mid-year 2012. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.

Taleo’s Talent Management Cloud helps organizations attract, develop, motivate and retain human capital to improve performance and drive growth.

Together, Oracle and Taleo expect to create a comprehensive cloud offering for organizations to manage their Human Resource operations and employee careers. The combination is expected to empower employees and managers to effectively manage careers throughout their entire employment, enable organizations to retain talent and optimize costs, and improve the employee experience through faster on boarding and better collaboration with team members via social media.

甲骨文公司一直专注于企业级解决方案,所以这一并购进一步加强了其人力资源方案的筹码。几年前甲骨文就吃掉了一家人力资源软件公司PeopleSoft,但是在recruiting方面,Taleo是当仁不让的老大,所以吃掉Taleo后,使其人力资源管理体系更加完整。

提供One-Stop Solution是甲骨文公司一贯坚持的目标,所以在企业资源管理(ERM)方面,已经无人可出其右。同时这一举动也意味着,人力资源管理,或者说人才的竞争在企业管理的比重将越来越大。
