Oracle Cloud HCM

Very well suited for permanent employees in global organizations.

Not well suited for contingent workforces as you have to pay for Oracle licenses for all of them. We are looking at moving some of our temporary associate payrolls to Oracle Cloud, but the license cost is prohibitive (even though they will not have access to most features within Oracle).

Books 24x7 is well suited for a corporate environment where employees need to have access to a variety of books on many topics. It is not so friendly for someone who is traveling because they have to be online, logged into the company network in order to read the books they have put on their shelf. One time when it is most convenient to read is on an airplane, but this is not an option in the current setup of Books 24x7.

Pros

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Streamlines processes by making them consistent but also allows ability to slightly change those processes based upon business units needs.
  • With new newsfeed capabilities making system access more readily available to all users on all devices.
  • Allows for upgrades which allows end user to be on the most up to date product but now incorporates features to truly let you determine when to release those features.
Steve Jordan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skillsoft Books

  • Books 24x7 is very good at keeping their content up to date, offering new selections on a regular basis.
  • The books are easy to search for by topic and can be sorted and stored for future reading in a custom library.
  • The selection of books is very versatile and multi-faceted.
Richard (Ric) Hazel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Reporting out of Taleo Learn is difficult.
  • Automation of performance plans in Taleo performance is difficult given our complexity
  • Historic performance records of terminated associates can be difficult to find due the the large number of previous associates records we have
Joshua Pekar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skillsoft Books

  • The biggest issue I have with Books 24x7 is that you have to be online to read the books. It would be nice if there was a download option where you could read the book in an e-reader app like Kindle or Nook.
  • The portal to log in to Books 24x7 is not easy to navigate. This may be an issue internally with our Information Systems.
  • Having an option to highlight sections of the book as you are reading it would be very helpful.

Taleo does what we need it to do and based on the costs from both a time and money perspective, I don't see us changing anytime soon. If anything I think we will look to leverage the capabilities available that we may not already be using.

Books 24x7 is a useful tool for growth, knowledge sharing, and overall intellectual health within the company. Our company has been very forward thinking in offering this to every employee. As a result, people have been able to grow in areas they may not have previously explored because of the free access to resources they may not have bothered with before they had free access to them.

Overall, Books 24x7 is relatively easy to use, and has a lot of positives going for it. It has room for improvement, but in its current state or version it is still a useful tool to enhance, encourage, and promote learning across the entire corporation. It has filled a much needed gap in learning and personal development, and is a value add to any organization.

Oracle has an excellent support model. The challenge is in adopting this support model and making traditional IT and non-mature system administrators use this model. In combination with the Oracle Cloud (client) Community, the support is excellent.

There is a lot of potential on Fusion. We have reaped about 10% of potential benefits. Especially on Workforce Intelligence, the opportunities are huge. The reason why we do not use the solution at its full potential is not in the product (which is simple and transparent). A roadmap is under construction to bring more of its potential to the end user.

Alternatives Considered

I personally liked using Bullhorn better, everything was easy to pick up on and flowed really nicely. I feel that it was very intuitive were as Taleo does not have the same flow to it. Bullhorn also has a modern look and the ability for me to open all the jobs I am currently working on and candidate profiles at the same time

We have used no other products similar to Books 24x7. I am certain that HR probably tested or reviewed several options before settling on this product, but I have no information related to why they decided on Books 24x7.

Return on Investment

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Once Taleo is up and running at your organization you will see a ROI within your first hire. I was using a lot of outside vendors prior to using Taleo which typical cost me 20K per hire for an engineer. So it was clear to the CEO once I made my first hire using Taleo via a job posting or referral or sourcing method that the ATS was the way to go. He was quite pleased. Cut the vendor fees from 500K a year down to under 100K!

  • The product has improved the furthering education aspect of all jobs within in the company by offering access to books both inside and outside the employees job description.
  • Workgroups have be able to read books at the same time while cooperating on a certain initiative, allowing for open conversations in relation to what they are reading.
  • Our company's leadership initiatives have been strengthened due to the free access to leadership related material offered within Books 24x7.
