Jobscience Offers Oracle Acquired Taleo Customers a Fast Track to Social Talent

Jitterbit Powers Free Data Migration for a Smooth Ride to the Social Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2012) - Jobscience, the award winning recruitment system on the platform, today announced the Jobscience Social Recruiting FastPass for Taleo Business Edition customers impacted by Oracle. This Jobscience program provides Taleo customers a transformative way to find social talent.

"It's nice to see Oracle has conceded that Cloud Computing is the new way to operate, but Taleo customers have to be concerned about future product direction and support from a server company that builds massive databases, that doesn't have social DNA," said Ted Elliot, CEO of Jobscience. "Recruitment has transformed beyond the Cloud and now must embrace Social relationships where HR applications are not in proprietary Cloud silos, but part of a Social organization supported by a social ecosystem. Jobscience lets companies build relationships with talent by leveraging Social verse traditional application mills pumping out transactions that don't lead to the right hires. Jobscience allows Taleo customers a way to transform the way they interact with talent and avoid becoming another Oracle transaction."

The Jobscience Social Recruiting FastPass program is available to all Taleo Business Edition customers affected by the recent Oracle acquisition. The program includes:

  • Free basic account set up
  • Free Taleo Migration Package, powered by Jitterbit until July 31, 2012
  • Live and recorded web-based training sessions specific for Taleo migration customers
  • Switch before April 1, 2012 and gain access to Premier Phone Support for first 90 days

The free Taleo Migration Package included with FastPass is powered by Jitterbit, a leading cloud integration vendor that simplifies data migration and application integration, connecting Jobscience, and hundreds of other on-premise and cloud applications. As a member of the Jobscience social ecosystem, Jitterbit's proven integration platform will provide rapid and seamless data migration from Taleo to Jobscience, providing Taleo users a risk-free exit from Oracle.

"Data migration is the often overlooked roadblock for businesses that want to realize the full potential of their Cloud and Social technology investments," said George Gallegos, CEO of Jitterbit. "As a member of the social ecosystem, we are excited to provide the data migration solution that will help current Taleo customers quickly realize the powerful benefits of Jobscience and the platform."
