Wowie Zowie: PSFT Gets Merritt
(December 10, 2001) We
wondered. Doug Merritt, one of the industry's most profound thinkers and doers,
was given a second seat at the company he founded, Icarian, during this past
spring. It didn't seem very likely that he would hang around all that long.
While Icarian did what it needed to do (and is probably stronger for the
decision), it left Doug without substance to chew on.
In a brilliant strategic move, Peoplesoft has
picked Doug to head its Human Resources Management Systems division.
PeopleSoft Inc. today announced it has hired Doug Merritt as vice president
and general manager for PeopleSoft's industry-leadingHuman Resources
Management Systems (HRMS) product division. Merritt's proven domain
and management expertise will drive PeopleSoft's future strategic direction,
building on the company's thought leadership and dominant position
in the human resources (HR) applications market.
Merritt joins PeopleSoft with more than 14
years of unique experience in the software industry. Most recently, Merritt
was founding president and CEO at Icarian, a Sunnyvale company that offers
internet-based workforce lifecycle software. During his tenure as CEO, Merritt
earned his reputation as a visionary in the HR applications market. Prior to
that, Merritt worked at Patrol Software as director of sales, which was later
acquired by BMC Software. Additionally, he served as the first head of western
region sales and marketing at PowerSoft. Merritt has also held positions at
Oracle and Andersen Consulting, after earning a degree in Business from the
University of the Pacific.
(from the Peoplesoft Press Release)
Currently, the Recruiting/Applicant Tracking
functionality that is a part of Peoplesoft 8.0 is rearranging historic client
relationships and fueling Peoplesoft's reputation as an up and comer in the
industry. With the addition of Merritt, the firm should begin to be poised to
grow outside of its captive markets of current customers.
Currently, it's clear that the bulk of growth in
the industry will be awarded nearly equally to Recruitsoft, BrassRing and
Hire.com (check out the buyers' survey in the 2002
Electronic Recruiting Index). Executives at those companies should brace
themselves for an onslaught of innovation from Peoplesoft and real competitive
behavior by the end of 2002.
We're excited to see that Doug's voice, vision
and performance is staying in the industry. Peoplesoft should be congratulated.
