<strong>Arlington</strong><strong>, Va. &mdash; Feb. 14</strong><br />Plateau Systems, a provider of talent management software, content and services, announced it was named a leader in the February 2008 &ldquo;Forrester Wave: Enterprise Learning Management Suites, Q1 2008&rdquo; report. <br /><br />In this evaluation, Plateau received the highest vendor score in the strategy category among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate. This report follows Forrester&rsquo;s recent recognition of Plateau as a leader in the performance solutions segment and the integrated performance and compensation management segment of the August 2007 &ldquo;Forrester Wave: Integrated Performance and Compensation Solutions, Q3 2007&rdquo; report. <br /> <br />&ldquo;We are pleased that Forrester has recognized Plateau as a leader in its Enterprise Learning Management Wave and take great pride in being the first and only talent management solution provider to have been named a leader in this report as well as Forrester&rsquo;s Integrated Performance and Compensation Solutions Wave,&rdquo; said Paul Sparta, CEO of Plateau Systems. &ldquo;Learning, performance and compensation are clearly key components of any company&rsquo;s talent management strategy. By delivering a seamless talent management solution that also provides deep, stand-alone functionality for learning management, performance management, compensation management and career and succession planning, Plateau allows customers to grow their talent management strategy and solution in line with their business goals, and allows them to do so without having to trade functionality for integration, and vice versa.&rdquo; <br /> <br />Forrester&rsquo;s report evaluated 12 leading learning management vendors across 90 criteria according to current offering, strategy and market presence. Plateau was awarded the top score in the strategy category, receiving the highest possible score for product enhancement. According to the report, &ldquo;Plateau plans to continue to build out its talent management suites, as well as to develop capabilities in Web 2.0 technologies.&rdquo; Forrester further states: &ldquo;In our user reference checks, Plateau received the highest marks of all vendors for knowledgeable, honest and supportive sales, implementation and customer service teams.&rdquo;<br /> <br />According to Forrester, learning suites are &ldquo;quickly becoming a critical component of an organization&rsquo;s talent management efforts.&rdquo; Forrester went on to note that &ldquo;pure-play vendors like, Plateau Systems (along with three other vendors), have created or acquired performance management, succession planning and compensation capabilities and have integrated these components into a talent management suite that complements the learning suite.&rdquo; <br />
