technology can help HR leaders achieve business objectives. Leaders
have the ability to execute against that vision through products,
services and demonstrated, solid business results in the form of
revenue and earnings. In talent management suites, Leaders show a
consistent ability to win broad suite deals. They have significant
successful customer deployments in North America, EMEA and the
