2012. Oracle buys SaaS talent management system Taleo

SaaS-arms race between Oracle and SAP continues. After SAP acquired the leader of the talent management market - SuccessFactors, Oracle's boss Larry Ellison could not sleep in peace. In order to calm down a little he decided to buy the second company in this market - Taleo. (Not so long ago we compared SuccessFactors vs Taleo). The deal amount - $ 1.9 billion. Taleo is famous primarily for it's personal compensation tools and head-hunting tools, integrated with social networks. As usual in such cases we say that this deal is a big sign for those who still doubt in SaaS. If Larry Ellison, who doubted more than others and who already owns the HRM system PeopelSoft, buys the SaaS-alternative - it's a big sign.

2010. Talent Management 2.0: SuccessFactors vs Taleo

Everyone knows that "talent is everything". Everyone knows that 80% of his time boss should  devote to employees and their motivation. But in practice, boss remember about an employee only when he did something wrong and proved once again that his salary is too high. However, as competition in all areas is growing and business becomes more and more dependent of its talents, this outdated practice will only lead to deadpool. That's why talent management software and services are now experiencing a rapid growth. In the recent SaaS tool ratings talent management (and related technologies - HRM and e-Recruting) - are among most demanded. In this talent management market two gorillas have emerged: Taleo and SuccessFactors. And both these companies provide SaaS solutions.
