Oracle have been spending a lot of time developing the HCM Cloud product, and it's now a full-featured product set as far as I'm concerned. It covers the core lifecycle of an employee, all the way through from hiring somebody, managing their... more»

With the product being in the cloud, that means that the users don't have to worry about having servers on premises, they don't have to worry about all the infrastructure, all the upgrades. They have to test upgrades, but Oracle Cloud... more»

What needs improvement?

I think Oracle HCM is a full-feature product. It's perhaps that some of the parts of the product need expansion. I come from the UK and we deal a lot with people who want a UK-based, legislatively-based payroll service. There are certain very... more»

The recruiting process needs work. This is the only module that is provided by other applications and it is not integrated. You need to ask Oracle to "integrate" both applications. This is done with no additional cost, but it is still an... more»

The best feature of the product is the middleware where it allows you to create a project and all the required and the optional tasks come pre-configured. So, you don't have to look for, "What do I need to do?" You can follow a step by step... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I think the customer experience, especially with the process flows at the top, where it takes you through the five steps, it has a nice navigation path at the top. So you know where you are at any point of the configuration.

What needs improvement?

Oracle should make sure all their partners are well trained, so that they can go to the client site and make themselves truly valuable. Instead of just, "Oh, it works this way," that is not. They need to be trained, and I think Oracle is... more»

User Assessments By Topic About Oracle HCM Cloud

One of the big issues at the moment that I think customers have is that the need to make a decision. If they've got an on-premises system, do they stay with that? Do they upgrade it? Get the next version, or do they move to the cloud? Now that's an individual decision for different companies and everybody will have their own reasons for why they decide to move to the cloud or why they don't. I think some of the benefits of moving to the cloud, that you don't have to manage that infrastructure anymore. Also, I think it's fair to say that Oracle really are developing the cloud. That's where all the innovation is going. Although they do update their legacy systems, we see more and more of the innovation going into the cloud first. I think that will just increase over time. I think there comes a point when a customer who is thinking about moving to the cloud is going to think, "Well, if I buy an on-premises system and I keep that for the next five or 10 years, is that system going to be a bit of a dinosaur quite quickly?" Whereas cloud, it's in its infancy and I guess it's got a longer shelf life at this point. I think it's a decision that will be made differently by different companies. What we're seeing in the market is that more and more people seem to be moving to the cloud now. I think when you're choosing a solution for the cloud, you've really got to look at is that vendor growing its application portfolio? Is it developing it? Is it bringing out new features? Is it giving you something that is scalable? If I want to grow my organization, will my application grow with me? I think they're the important things. Secondly, I'd look at support. Does my vendor provide the right level of support for me? If I'm a global organization, does it cover me following the sun around the world 24/7, 365 days a year?
Return on investment is always a major consideration when making an investment in your company. Here are some key best practices for HCM solutions that you can utilize to increase your return on investment and lower risks: * Identify your HR processes, and select a complete HCM solution: You need to determine the HCM capabilities that are required and their interaction with each other to maximize business. The key is to understand the interaction of the related HCM processes in different modules and select an HCM solution that allows you to deliver a complete solution without starting a new process at every turn. * Identify the integration points with other non-HCM applications and solutions: You need to take into account the standard integration of HCM modules with other applications like, Procure-to-pay, Project Accounting, and Internet Expenses etc. For instance sharing the HR position hierarchies for procure-to-pay workflow processes ensures that the procurement managers making purchases are managers with the appropriate authority to make the types of purchases they are making. Considering the need for these integrations will reduce ongoing technical costs and enable greater automated workflow from the solutions implemented. * Identify international scalability and data ownership compliances: You need to ensure availability, redundancy and performance at all global locations by taking into account the global scalability feature of the HCM solutions. For instance, Multi language support ensures that the managers don't need to maintain separate systems and will help bring together key processes and data thus maximizing business results. Data privacy norms, which differ by country, needs to be considered and long term control of data should be maintained.
