On February 9, 2012, Oracle announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire Taleo Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based talent management.
The transaction has closed.
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.
Taleo customers and partners: Please use your existing contacts for support, professional services, and sales.
