PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 15, 2013 - Asia Pacific – Cornerstone OnDemand (http://www.cornerstoneondemand.com/) (NASDAQ: CSOD), a leading cloud solutions provider, and Appirio (http://www.appirio.com/), a global services provider and one of the largest human capital management (HCM) technology consultancies, today announced they have formed a strategic global relationship. Appirio will become a preferred service provider for Cornerstone’s cloud-based talent management solutions. The teaming of the two companies also allows Appirio to broaden its existing talent management solution.

“Cloud, mobile and social technologies have changed everything, especially the way employees find jobs, engage in the workplace and grow in their careers,” said Chris Barbin, CEO of Appirio. “Few get this as well as Cornerstone, which has created and continues to evolve its solutions with these shifts in mind. Cornerstone is a perfect complement to our existing HCM capabilities and will be a great addition to partnerships we currently have in place with leading cloud companies.”

As a preferred service provider, Appirio will work with Cornerstone’s clients and prospects to design and deliver a comprehensive and highly impactful talent and learning management solution. These capabilities will become part of Appirio’s broader HCM portfolio, which help organizations move people-based processes such as recruiting, onboarding, core HR, performance management, learning management and employee engagement from tactical to transformational.

Cornerstone can now tap into Appirio’s team of global experts, along with the company’s integrated Cloud Enablement Suite and its fast-growing CloudSpokes developer community, to extend Cornerstone’s solutions and services. Appirio will provide full service offerings including strategy consulting, governance and process design, project management, deployment and integration, and content creation. Alongside with their presence in the States and Europe, Appirio had its first expansion into Asia Pacific in 2009 by leading the Force.com platform implementation at Japan Post Network Co., Ltd., The company has the largest number of employees in Japan.

“Appirio’s experience in helping more than 500 enterprises apply cloud technology in innovative ways, through their work with companies like salesforce.com, Workday and Google, makes teaming with them great for both Cornerstone and our clients,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “Talent management has become an increasingly essential component of empowering the new workforce. By managing people strategies in the cloud, organizations are better positioned to effectively meet the ever-changing needs of the global workforce.”

According to research from IDC, the worldwide HCM market is forecasted to reach $11 billion in 2016.1 According to Lisa Rowan, program director, HR, learning and talent strategies for IDC, “Despite economic uncertainty in various parts of the world, human capital management investments have remained strong, driven in large part by SaaS and next-generation talent management software solutions. More organizations are migrating to integrated, cloud-based solutions that allow them to gain a global view into their workforces, evenly apply talent management efforts, streamline operations and achieve more with their current resources.”
