There is an increasing awareness of the significance of talent and talent management to an organization's performance and competitive advantage. Similarly there is increasing recognition that human capital and talent issues permeate throughout most segments of an organization. Accordingly, when an organization decides to change its processes and the way that it conducts its business, talent management will be affected. Based on an in-depth case study, this paper shows that the decision to transition from a proprietary to a vanilla HRIS (Human Resource Information System), significantly affected the way in which the organization viewed and managed its talent.
