      Historically at Microsoft, employees performed reviews by printing out hard copies of Microsoft® Office Word documents and then delivering signed copies of the employee reviews to the Human Resource department. An early solution was created that included e-mailing Word documents to each other and then uploading final versions of the Word document to a secured web site. Although this process used electronic documents and was effectively paperless, it relied heavily on messaging (e-mail and messaging-based applications) for sending the reviews between employees, managers, and the human resources department.

This meant finding a way to take data entered in an offline form and store it in a structured manner so that it could be tied to other performance management tools in the future. With a tight deadline for creating a new commitments tool that would be used at the start of the new fiscal year, the HRIT team was eager to find a solution that would efficiently meet the team’s needs and be easy to deploy.
