OVHcloud and Talentsoft, a Cegid Company, combine forces to offer a fully trusted cloud-based human capital management solution
OVHcloud and Talentsoft, a Cegid Company today announce a new unique trusted cloud offering dedicated to Human Capital management in Europe. This offer supports the two French companies’ will to assist in the HR transformation of public sector organizations in France and Europe, as sensitive data protection and digital sovereignty are at the heart of much concern.
Creating an ethical local ecosystem for data protection and digital sovereignty is necessary according to 89% of respondents in the latest IFOP survey for OVHcloud. Nearly half of respondents (45%) have more trust in French and European companies to protect their personal data; 72% oppose the storage of their data outside the European Union. With this partnership, the two companies will deploy new services faster and securely within a trusted SaaS ecosystem, thus ensuring the protection of sensitive data related to human resources.
Talentsoft’s offering leverages OVHcloud’s Hosted Private Cloud vSAN and High-End Dedicated Server solutions, combined with Talentsoft’s own services and software. Both solutions are certified to the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, compliant with the requirements of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The offering therefore meets the most stringent standards in terms of data security, availability and reliability, which are required for the official operation of government agencies, organizations and Critical Service Operators (CSOs) that process sensitive data in France and Europe.
“Through this strong partnership, we offer a solution that meets the challenges of data sovereignity. It is also proof that all organisations and institutions, both French and European, are increasingly sensitive and attentive to this issue. Together, we reinforce the trusted SaaS ecosystem for the benefit of user data protection, while at the same time bringing new innovative services into human capital management. This new component strengthens OVHcloud’s panel of partners that devote and commit themselves to the co-building of a safe and reliable open cloud, through the Open Trusted Cloud program,” said Sylvain Rouri, CSO of OVHcloud.
“Talentsoft, a Cegid Company, is a pioneer in operating a HR cloud and our mission is to anticipate and assist in the transformations of this sector. This partnership with OVHcloud is a very exciting one, ensuring that our clients will continue to benefit from sovereign management of their most valuable data with a comprehensive human capital management solution that we fully control in Europe. Our clients can thus rely on our solutions to transform their organization, and increase their agility and the impact of their HR strategy by complying with all the specifics of HR practices in Europe, both now and in the future”, added Geoffrey Janvier, VP Product & Engineering at Talentsoft, a Cegid Company.
