Cornerstone OnDemand Eyes Public Sector

Cornerstone OnDemand, the Santa Monica enterprise software developer which has done very well providing talent management and software for recruiting, human resources, and other functions, said today that it is now eyeing the public sector to help drive its growth. The publicly held firm said that it is seeing growth in the public sector market, and that it sees the sector's "rapidly growing need" for talent management.

Cornerstone OnDemand said its public sector clients already include such customers as the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Emory University, San Francisco Unified School District, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Interestingly enough, the move puts Cornerstone OnDemand up against another, growing Southern California company, NEOGOV, which has quietly built its own, fast growing, and profitable business in the talent management area by focusing on those public sector clients.
