In today’s competitive landscape, finding the best talent, hiring them, and onboarding them quickly demands time, energy, and resources. Organizations are leveraging technology to make recruiting strategic, and agile. Staying ahead of the competition in attracting and retaining top talent is increasingly becoming more challenging.
HR leaders are propelled to broaden their approach to Human Capital Management (HCM). HR, as a practice has evolved from being a cost center to a value generator. With holistic talent development driving business growth, the functions of HR include using technology to improve workforce efficiency. Equally crucial is their role in providing insights into parameters that boost productivity. Based on these insights, leaders can understand their organization’s talent capabilities and optimize them for success.
Taleo, also called Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud (OTAC) was considered an industry leader in the cloud-based Talent Acquisition market. As times and technology changed, the inherent challenges of using Taleo being a standalone tool have led users to migrate to Oracle Recruiting as an attractive alternative. A part of the HCM Cloud suite, Oracle Recruiting (OR) was launched in the market in 2018. Within a short span of 2 years, Oracle Recruiting has matured in the complexity of business processes and delivered user-friendly integrations. Many Taleo customers who are looking to simplify their HCM landscape are making a transition to .
What is Oracle Recruiting?
Oracle Recruiting is a complete solution for sourcing, recruiting, and onboarding candidates. OR is a Taleo alternative for people who already use Oracle HCM Suite. It delivers distinct benefits, upgrades, and returns as compared to the standalone Taleo. Catering to the needs of the present times, OR allows businesses to monitor, track, and measure talent information across the HR spectrum.
One of the main reasons why we see clients shifting to Oracle Recruiting is because of the central focus on candidate experience. Across various facets of HR and during the recruiting process, you can leverage cutting-edge technologies such as chatbots, a modern and mobile-friendly user experience for both internal and external candidates along with an intuitive consumer-like experience.
Intending to address the modern-day challenges of recruiting using a data-driven and mobile-first user experience, this platform is intuitive to source and connect with candidates. At the same time, it empowers recruiters with Artificial Intelligence (AI) based matching to make data-driven recruiting decisions.
6 Reasons for Migration from Taleo to Oracle Recruiting
Evosys, as an Oracle Cloud system integrator, has worked with 650+ Taleo customers for more than 10 years now. We have helped customers from medium to large scale enterprises adopt Taleo for their businesses.
However, in recent times, based on our interactions and feedback, we have observed an increasing number of Taleo users to have migrated to OR. An equally large number of customers are actively considering the migration to Oracle Recruiting. Here are a few reasons why:
Better data quality
The major drawback of Taleo is that it needs an interface to Oracle HCM Cloud. Data from the ORC cloud is not available and requires a separate reporting tool.
On the contrary, with Oracle Recruiting, the number of integrations required to maintain the system decreases drastically. Foundational data such as organization, location, and job function, requisition templates, job details, employees, internal candidates, and new hires are no longer required.
All this data on a single platform and the ability to leverage configuration from other HCM modules makes the latest data available immediately for the recruitment process. Data from the HCM modules include organizations, jobs, positions, work locations, and geographies. This way you can reduce the number of costly data errors that arise with legacy systems during sourcing, hiring, and onboarding processes.
Oracle Recruiting equips organizations to store all HR data within one reporting tool. After implementing OR, you eliminate the need to export information to a data warehouse or any additional cloud solutions. Reports can integrate data from across different HR domains.
With integrated reporting, your business solves numerous challenges such as – combining recruiting data with performance records for making more strategic business decisions. The result is identifying top talent, linking job openings to talent profiles, and identifying internal talent around key competencies.
A comprehensive HR platform
HCM Cloud enables employees to have one location for all HR-related self-service activities. Employees can also search for open jobs and review a job offer on the same platform. When it comes to identifying high-quality new-hires, managers can use the self-service interface to drive adoption, satisfaction, and enhance decision-making.
A part of Oracle Cloud HCM, Oracle Onboarding offers organizations an opportunity to provide meaningful and enriched new hire experiences. The effective onboarding covers a comprehensive set of features from pre-boarding to onboarding, offboarding, and guidance-based task management. An integrated experience extends a sense of inclusion within the organization and ultimately improves productivity and engagement.
Effective onboarding has multiple benefits. Firstly, it improves pre and post-hire interactions, and empowers the new hires with critical workplace connections. At the same time, it augments operational awareness, efficiency, ensures compliance, and verifies, manages, and consolidates data and information.
Leveraging the power of Oracle Cloud HCM, Oracle Recruiting is accompanied by a host of features that Taleo falls short of. They include delivering deeper insights and easy access to information about your hiring candidates at all stages of employment.
For superior user-experience, work structures, position information, security profiles, and configuration tools are unified across a single platform.
Intelligent, adaptive and data-driven outcomes
Oracle Recruiting takes advantage of technologies consumers frequently use including chatbots, adaptive intelligence, and consistent and mobile-first user interface. These technologies provide a competitive advantage for hiring and retaining talent while reducing the operating cost of the HR department. Imagine the affordability when a chatbot does the work of a help desk! Even the candidate experience is elevated to dynamic conversation-based interactions instead of a monotonous form-driven process.
To facilitate smart and quicker hiring, OR has an in-built intelligence feature that is powerful and easy to use.
These are predominantly the functions and integrations offered by OR, which is why our Taleo customers are looking to make the transition to Oracle Recruiting.

Elimination of integration management overhead and data integrity risks
