According to report, Cornerstone edges out the competition to become the strongest performance management software vendor; also receives high customer ratings

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 24, 2011 – Learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) today announced that the company has been ranked as a “Leader” in the May 2011 report, “The Forrester Wave™: Talent Management, Q2 2011” by Forrester Research Inc.

“As a true multitenant, SaaS-only offering, Cornerstone edged out the competition to become the strongest performance vendor,” stated the report. “Customers give Cornerstone high ratings for delivering a product that meets their needs. Cornerstone is the only company we evaluated that has nearly equal numbers of customers deploying learning and performance.”

Forrester’s vendor assessments covered three categories, including learning, performance, and combined learning and performance. Assessments included evaluation of each vendor’s current offering, strategy and market presence.

In recent months, Cornerstone has been recognised as a leader in three other vendor and market studies, including IDC’s 2011 Integrated Talent Management MarketScape report[1], the 2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Corporate Learning Systems report[2] and the 2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Employee Performance Management Software report.[3] Strengths called out in the reports include customer experience, product capabilities and innovation, and the scalability of Cornerstone’s SaaS architecture.

“Cornerstone is the only pure play, organically developed SaaS solution to be recognised in these recent analyst reports as a leader in both the learning and performance management categories,” said Adam Miller, president and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “Other vendors may be rushing to fill out their talent management functionality or make the switch to SaaS, but we’ve been there with an integrated SaaS solution from the beginning.”
