Meta4 vs. Workday
Well, now at Oracle you just got an extended waiting time. The first major acquisition by Oracle, last decade, and which launched the series, was PeopleSoft. Not Oracle, whose acquisition spree since then, and culminating now with Taleo, has always been premised on the "if you can't beat 'em, buy 'em" principle. Just as Oracle in the mid s recognized it couldn't build and sell a better HR product than PeopleSoft and therefore set about buying it, in this decade they are just acknowledging the same by buying a SaaS-based talent vendor, recognizing its own double failure at having a true SaaS offering and competitive talent functionality, especially in the recruiting space.
My advice: Of course, there is no guarantee that such a vendor will itself remain independent for long so make sure your contract protects you adequately. Another driver for the acquisition was that Oracle was clearly worried that Workday might decide to plug its recruiting and learning holes by acquiring Taleo the latter's CEO is a former PeopleSoft executive. Why Taleo? Another bad surprise awaiting Taleo customers is that you can forget about all product direction commitments and promises. And I don't see Oracle just buying one small vendor after another.

And of course, if you are looking at having an innovative talent management system, then, pass your way. With customers stubbornly refusing to buy its pseudo-SaaS offering called Fusion, Oracle was left with no other choice but to go and buy a customer base. How are customers going to make sense of it, especially when coupled with other issues such as integration, upgrades and product direction expectations?
