What do you like best?
In my opinion Oracle's Fusion HCM cloud is a solid product and has been well received by a lot of customers in last 12 months. Yet it still requires improvements in some areas in order to compete with some of its toughest competitors like Workday HCM. Based on my experience, I feel that the product has matured a lot in the last couple of years and meets most client requirements for the following areas:
1. Core HCM
2. Talent Management
3. Compensation Management
Oracle is putting a lot of efforts to improve various aspects of the products and has been extremely receptive towards client feedback. Fusion HCM cloud is for real and will just improve with time. So if one is working in the field of Oracle ERP such as eBusiness Suite or PeopleSoft, its about time to take a plunge into the world of Fusion Cloud HCM.
What do you dislike?
Some of the key areas where the product is still in its infancy are:
2. Time and Labor
These modules require significant enhancement in order to be successful for large customers.
Apart from that the integration with Taleo recruitment and onboarding (especially for Taleo first customers is not fully ready. The process is even more difficult for Taleo business edition customers. Alos we have found that there are a lot of incorrect translations for a lot of european languages.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
1. Global implementation for an organization with 3000+ employees
2. Using Compensation module to solve grade progression for hourly employees
3. Using fast formulas to derive certain values within the compensation worksheet
4. Use modelling to solve budgeting problem for multiple countries in a single compensation plan
