What needs improvement with Oracle HCM Cloud?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The interface is easy already, but if you improve user interface — any upgrade of that sort — they will improve the product. We notice an improvement with every update and they should continue to do that. In our next phase of the deployment, we want to implement the financial modules which has been part of our plan for a while. That is just the deployment of something that already exists in the product. Oracle HCM in some countries only has the payroll module on-premises. We can use it that way, but we would like them to include all countries to be cloud so that it is available in our preferred deployment. Currently, payroll in Egypt is on-premises only because of regulations. We need to be on the cloud so we look forward to that. Right now, we don't need anything that is really a new feature. Our company will start to more fully utilize the current features already available.
Sometimes implementation documentation is a bit behind. Some customers like to manage things themselves after the initial implementation and they find that a bit difficult. Also -but I think that this is the case for all solutions with such a functional extent- you feel that different teams are working on the different modules, but this is normal because everybody has their own specialization. In the next release, I would like to see a some further updates to the recruitment module. I would like to see the preboarding extended so that it sends out notifications through personal email. That would be very useful.
The features available in EBS should be available on the cloud as well. When these features are not available on the cloud, it's hard to convince customers to migrate. The solution needs to allow for more integrations and customizations.
The recruitment aspect is good, but it's new and it still needs some enhancements. In the future, we hope it will be similar to Taleo.
I would focus on making high volume recruitment more bulky. E.g., if we could clone offer at the same hourly rate for the same position, it would be helpful.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
