Talent Management contributes to the backbone of any of the HRMS system and its market has been evolving over time. As per a report from Bersin & Associates- a specialist research firm- an amount of more than $3 billion has been spent by the organizations to buy talent management softwares in 2011 and this number is expected to increase by 16-17% in 2012.
Peoplesoft to Taleo Integration
Why Taleo? Taleo has been preferred by the organizations to a great extent due to its cloud based solution, offering tremendous vendor capacities and unrivaled functionality in Recruitment and Performance Management functions.
Why Peoplesoft? Peoplesoft is valued for Core HR business processes extensively.
Why Taleo-Peoplesoft Integration? With the market trending towards cloud based solutions, there is a substantial requirement to integrate the disjoint best of the breed HRMS systems catering to various HR processes. After the acquisition of Taleo by Oracle, the scope for integration of both the systems eventually intensifies.
Below is one of the approaches to integrate Taleo Talent Acquisition and Performance Management modules with Peoplesoft Core HR module, in form of outbound interface, imparting the Peoplesoft data to Taleo.
For the Taleo Recruitment module, data has to be fed to Taleo for Cost Center and Cost Center Managers, Departments, Locations, Recruitment Managers and Employees information.
The feeds will be in form of files generated by an interface. A specific file with Peoplesoft job data will be fed to be used in Taleo application for Requisition creation and its management and also for accessing the internal job postings.
An additional file including personal data, job data and security roles of the employees will be fed to Taleo Performance Management which shares the information with the Recruiting module. Taleo Performance Management will use this information for Performance Reviews and Talent Management processes to enable employees to access their Performance Review data and talent management team to manage the entire Talent Management and Performance Review processes.
Taleo Connect Client- Taleo integration tool
The data from Peoplesoft will be extracted in files and uploaded into Taleo using Taleo Connect Client (TCC). TCC is a part of Taleo Connect suite which is used to integrate Taleo with other organizational systems like HR Operations, HR Information System, Reporting, Analytics and Core HR systems. Technically, TCC is utilized as an integration tool to deal with the information flow in form of Interfaces to/from the Taleo system.
The subsequent post (part-2) will outline the description and business rules for the Interface and its output. It will also brief the future scope of this approach.
