Santa Monica, CA – May 6, 2008 – Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc., the only proven provider of on-demand, integrated learning and talent management software, content and services, today announced that they have strengthened their public sector practice to deliver world-class integrated learning and talent management solutions to federal government agencies.


Cornerstone and the National Technical Information Service - a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce that serves as the largest central resource for government-funded scientific, technical, engineering and business related information - have entered into a strategic partnership to provide a comprehensive integrated talent management solution.
