Today, I am pleased to share exciting news with you about our new relationship with Appirio, a global services provider and one of the largest human capital management technology consultancies. With the flurry of conversations around the “cloud,” we believe there’s no better time than now to assemble the best providers that can deliver the combination of great technology and world-class service. To us, part of this involves teaming up with Appirio.
Cornerstone has continued to be one of the fastest-growing companies and cloud vendors—from 2007 to 2011, we had 588 percent fiscal year revenue growth. To this end, we now see a great opportunity with Appirio to expand our cloud ecosystem in support of our commitment to growth and focus on customer success. As part of our relationship, Appirio will become a preferred service provider for Cornerstone clients, in addition to extending Appirio’s existing talent management offering through use of the Cornerstone solution.
Appirio has quickly emerged as the leading cloud services provider in the world. Having built a tremendous reputation in the cloud world, Appirio collaborates with what I consider the best cloud vendors in the world, including salesforce.com, Google, Workday, Amazon and now Cornerstone OnDemand.
Like Cornerstone, Appirio was “born in the cloud.” We mutually understand what it means to deliver with scale and flexibility, and the importance of helping our customers succeed to that end. Appirio’s global reach provides a significant advantage as we continue our own global expansion. With the recent addition of Knowledge Infusion, Appirio now has tremendous depth in talent management – from building the talent strategy to managing the deployment, ensuring it is aligned and tied to business goals.
Needless to say, we are tremendously excited to join forces with Appirio—together embracing the cloud, mobile and social revolution to empower today’s new workforce.
