Migrating from Taleo to ORC: How Do They Stack Up?

Taleo has long held market share as a standalone, cloud-based, robust recruitment platform. After its acquisition by Oracle in 2012, the product has been Oracle’s response to Recruiter’s needs, easily integrating with the rest of the Cloud HCM Suite of applications.

Post R13, Oracle released its own response to the evolving recruiter landscape in the form of Oracle Recruiting Cloud (ORC). As ORC has matured in both complexity of business processes and delivered integrations, many Taleo customers are looking at making the transition. 

Migrating from Taleo to ORC offers a suite of benefits including:

  • Improved candidate to hire process by removing integration complexity
  • Fully integrated system allowing seamless data integration between core setups, person and employment data, talent profiles, and compensation 
  • Expansion of Oracle Cloud capabilities such as Onboarding, Talent Profiles, Career Development, Digital Assistant, Social Networking, Learning and BI Reporting Analytics
  • Fully Integrated reporting capabilities across all modules from candidate to hire to retire  
  • Reduced cost to no longer maintain two separate systems and upkeep on integrations
  • Adobe Flash retirement. The Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud (OTAC) utilizes Flash for Recruiting Center. Customers utilizing this Flash-based user experience will be impacted by the end-of-life of Adobe Flash

But how do Taleo and ORC stack up on functionality? 

Oracle Recruiting Cloud versus Taleo

Considering moving from Taleo to ORC?

First, analyze current state business processes.  Look to answer the What, Why, and How.  What is your process for creating a new job requisition?  How many career sites are you using?  Why do you have certain user-defined fields enabled?  

Next, understand the future state.  What are the capabilities for requisition approvals? Why might we want to enable social?  How does ORC integrate with Core HCM?  This analysis helps to fully understand what is a fit and what might be a gap as you migrate to ORC.  Having this understanding of current to future state lays the foundation to implementation design.
