Overall Satisfaction with Oracle HCM Cloud

Oracle HCM Cloud is being used to support Global Core HR, NA Payroll, Global Payroll Integration, and Global Compensation functions for a large high-tech company. The application consolidates the organization on a single, global platform with common/standardized business processes. Implementing the Oracle Cloud application has greatly reduced the number of complex customizations (and associated maintenance) that were present in the legacy on-prem application.

Pros

  • Regular maintenance and application functionality updates. Clients will not have to undergo a significant upgrade to stay current once they have migrated to the cloud application.
  • Standardized business processes across the global organization.
  • Greatly reduced number of customizations, results in lower effort to maintain.

Cons

  • The UI within the application is not always consistent between modules. Look/feel can vary across modules and ESS/MSS pages.
  • Delivered integration between Taleo and Oracle HCM Cloud does not provide robust functionality.
  • Bugs with existing functionality need to be addressed before adding new functionality.
  • Reporting tools have been used by users to create their own reports without going through the IT department.
Application functionality of Oracle HCM Cloud seems to be mostly on-par with Workday. However, Workday excels in usability from an end user perspective. Workday's UI is stronger than Oracle HCM Cloud's.
Oracle is well suited to organizations that wish to consolidate to global standard processes onto a common platform. Organizations that are willing to accept change are in a good position to be successful with Oracle Cloud.

Organizations that remain fractured from a business process perspective may struggle with Oracle HCM Cloud implementation. Organizations that have custom business rules that don't allow for flexibility (i.e. unions) will have greater difficulty implementing Oracle HCM Cloud. Some key payroll related functions are not yet proven in the client base (ex: OTL)
