Five Ideas: Human Capital Management

March 2016

“Everything from how to source, select, hire, and onboard talent to how to performance manage, reward, and transition talent benefits from better data context, insights, and suggestions,” says Bertrand Dussert, vice president of human capital management transformation for Oracle.


But how do you know you’re getting the most out of your data? And will things get easier when your company moves to the cloud? These are some of the big questions that HCM executives are asking.

Here, get details about what you’ll learn at Oracle HCM World, taking place from April 5 to 7, 2016 in Chicago. Plus, read on to see what human capital management experts have to say about dealing with data and moving to the cloud—and even just getting along better with your coworkers.

“There is a tsunami of data in the enterprise. So getting started with simple correlations will lend confidence to your HR team and lead to more-advanced hypotheses to test.” Christine Mellon, vice president of human capital management transformation at Oracle

“The data contained in HCM systems is highly sensitive, so businesses must ensure its safe transfer from on-premises environments to the cloud. Also, are there industry or regional regulations and laws that need to be considered? These are just some of the security questions business leaders need to ask when planning the cloud journey.” —Peter Jahnke, Oracle Insight

“If you’re making mistakes, you are probably in a job that is a good fit. Making mistakes suggests that you’re trying something new and that you’re taking the right kind of risks, because your mistakes are merely mistakes—they’re not failures.” —Ross McCammon, senior editor at Esquire and business etiquette columnist at Entrepreneur

“We’ve eliminated paper, we’ve eliminated spreadsheets, and we’ve eliminated the back-and-forth emails. Our HR organization has completely changed, and has moved out of that administrative capacity to be much more of a value-add, strategic component of the organization.” —Larry Freed, Overhead Door CIO

“The most consistent technology trend we see is building momentum toward cloud technology adoption, even among the world’s largest corporations. The question for HR leaders and their IT partners is now typically when they’ll move to the cloud, not if.” —Bertrand Dussert, vice president of human capital management transformation at Oracle
