Six Representative Customers in Recent Oracle Fusion HCM Implementations
Organizations are now at the beginning of a 20-year replacement cycle for human capital management (HCM) technology. Over the past decade, the market of large enterprise solutions has consolidated into two major players, Oracle and SAP , challenged by a number of new cloud entrants. Oracle offers three HCM solutions in the enterprise business solutions market with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS), PeopleSoft and Oracle HCM Cloud (Fusion HCM).
While Oracle announced the release of Fusion Applications, its business automation suite built from scratch, in May 2010, the market has not had much exposure to the customer wins and momentum of the release. Over the past six months, Constellation has seen an increase in interest in Oracle Fusion HCM. Recent inquires, vendor short lists and contract negotiation projects show a growing momentum.
At Oracle OpenWorld 2013, Constellation interviewed a dozen Oracle customers who have implemented Oracle Fusion HCM. Based on those interviews, customer inquiries and conversations with implementation partners, Constellation believes it's important to not only move to the cloud, but also consider Fusion HCM when functionality, usability/mobility, integration and flexible deployment matter.
As the vendor selection inquiries, short list requests and contract negotiations volume increase in the human capital management (HCM) space, Constellation recently took a deeper look at a key player on the HCM vendor landscape. This Best Practices report discusses where Oracle HCM is in the market, what types of selection patterns have emerged and when Oracle Fusion HCM may be a candidate for vendor selection short lists in a very hot HCM market.
