Plateau Named a "Leader" in IDC MarketScape for Integrated Talent Management

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - Plateau Systems, a provider of SaaS-based talent management solutions, today announced that independent analyst firm IDC has recognized Plateau as a "Leader" in the "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Integrated Talent Management 2011 Vendor Analysis(1)" report, released this week. The report analyzes integrated talent management providers in terms of their strategies and capabilities, product offerings, go-to-market execution and business plans.

"Plateau rose to leader status in this year's analysis through deepened integration of its offerings, strong client references, and the advent of Plateau Foundation," Lisa Rowan, Program Director of HR, Learning and Talent Strategies at IDC, stated in the report. "Other strengths include the depth of its various talent offerings, a good partner ecosystem, and a strong consulting team and consultative approach to onboarding clients."

Plateau Foundation is the talent management industry's first platform-as-a-service solution, enabling customer-specific extensions to Plateau SaaS-based Talent Management Suite that address their individual business requirements. Plateau Foundation ensures that customers get their talent management solutions "their way" without impacting the total cost of ownership.

"IDC's recognition of the Foundation architecture show how important SaaS architecture and implementation can be to ensuring a positive experience for customers."
