Austin, TX – May 13, 2008 – nGenera™ Corporation and Cornerstone OnDemand today an-nounced a partnership to integrate and sell selected applications from each company’s talent offerings to Global 1000 customers. nGenera will integrate Cornerstone OnDemand’s Learning applications into its nGen Talent™ offering, one of three broad offerings made available through its business innovation platform to power the Next Generation Enterprise. Cornerstone OnDemand will integrate nGenera’s nGen Collaboration, its Web 2.0 collaboration software suite, into its Talent Management Platform.
”We are pleased to partner with a forward-thinking organization like nGenera that shares Cornerstone OnDemand’s understanding and approach to the talent and workforce planning needs of next generation global enterprises,” said Sean Jacobsohn, VP of Alliances of Cornerstone OnDemand. “We’re excited about the potential impact of the partnership on the strategic initiatives that drive human capital and organizational excellence at our respective customers.”
“Learning systems are finally catching up with the way most learning actually works: informally, on demand, through peers, or watching experts. With Web 2.0 tools, customers see a big opportunity by rapidly making vast amounts of unstructured, user-generated content available for linking, tagging, and displaying in multiple formats,” said Steve Guengerich, Chief Learning Officer of nGenera Corp. “Companies that can quickly and effectively link this informal insight with their formal learning and performance management systems will provide significantly better experiences for employees and their own customers. Together with Cornerstone OnDemand, we deliver such a system through nGenera’s nGen Talent.”
In April 2008, nGenera launched nGen Talent – a platform-based combination of software-as-a-service, knowledge and advisory capabilities. The new product helps enterprises find, source and retain key resources anywhere in the world, and to create attractive, compelling work environments. nGen Talent features five outcome-based capabilities: Talent Readiness & Workforce Planning, Talent Acquisition, nGen Total Compensation Solution™, Talent Devel-opment, and Culture & Employee Experience.
