Redwood Shores, Calif. – December 19, 2011

News Facts

To provide additional options to Oracle customers, Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) systems implementation partners (SIs) around the world are developing rapid implementation offerings for Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM). Rapid implementation offerings are designed to simplify and accelerate the adoption of Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Services with predictable costs and reliable timeframes.
Customers can more quickly realize the value of Oracle Fusion HCM through these rapid implementation offerings in a software as a service (SaaS) model, whether they elect to use individual applications coexisting with their existing Oracle’s PeopleSoft, Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle’s JDEdwards HR applications, or to adopt the full capabilities of the Fusion HCM suite.
Combining expertise in implementation approaches and methods with leading practice setup templates and business process flows delivered with Fusion HCM Cloud Services, partners are developing structured programs that can accelerate time to value for every customer.
Oracle partners, including Cognizant, eVerge Group, The Hackett Group, HCL AXON, Infosys, KBACE, KPMG LLP, PwC and Wipro, are planning to make available rapid implementation offerings for Oracle Fusion HCM.

Implementation Partner Offerings

implementation offerings planned by Oracle SIs include:
Cognizant plans to offer AccelHRate, its Oracle Fusion HCM SaaS rapid implementation solution, leveraging the company’s strong background in implementing SaaS solutions, and deep domain knowledge and experience across Oracle HCM applications. The solution is supported by Cognizant's Fusion Applications Center of Excellence to harness Cognizant’s strong capabilities in Fusion Applications and provide continuous refinement to the approach.
eVerge Group has contributed to the development of Oracle Fusion HCM and is implementing all available Fusion HCM applications internally to manage its own human resources and payroll activities. By implementing the applications within the company, eVerge Group:

HCL AXON plans to offer its HCL AXON InHouse Fusion HCM, which includes its Fusion HCM Innovation Lab to help reduce cycle time and effort while providing enhanced delivery excellence through standardized methodologies and frameworks.
