Companies Create a Unified Experience for Organizations that Closely Align Learning and Development with Broader Human Capital Management Initiatives in the Cloud
WORKDAY RISING – LAS VEGAS – October 25, 2011 – Today at Workday Rising 2011, learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) announced that it has collaborated with Workday Inc., the leader in SaaS-based enterprise solutions for human resources, payroll, and financial management, to enable integration between the Cornerstone Learning Cloud and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM).
Customers of Cornerstone OnDemand and Workday will be able to use this cloud-to-cloud integration at no added cost, and without the need for custom development or additional middleware or servers. The jointly designed and developed integration will bring worker, organizational and talent information to and from Workday Human Capital Management and the Cornerstone Learning Cloud. This will enable customers to leverage their investments in each solution and bring together the key information employees, managers and executives need to have in one place.
"The Cornerstone and Workday integration creates a truly unified experience for organizations that want to align learning with their broader human capital and talent management initiatives," said David Somers, vice president of alliances and strategy for Cornerstone OnDemand. "The close collaboration among our product teams ensures that organizations are now able to seamlessly share relevant data among the systems, such as competencies, and transcripts and certifications, and, in turn, more effectively develop their workforces."
"Companies want to integrate training and development with their core human capital management system of record without the inconvenience of disjointed systems," said Leighanne Levensaler, vice president of HCM Strategy at Workday. "With this collaboration, customers that use Workday and Cornerstone can benefit from a seamless integration that unites their core system of record with learning management solutions."
The Cornerstone Learning Cloud, with features for e-learning, instructor-led training administration, compliance management, enterprise social networking and more, has been recognized as a leading solution by industry analyst firms such as IDC and Forrester Research. Earlier this year, Cornerstone also was positioned by Gartner Inc. in the “Leaders Quadrant” of the 2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Corporate Learning Systems report.1
