Aldar—Syed Ome Salam, Assistant Manager, HCM Applications
Aldar, the leading real estate developer in Abu Dhabi, needed a recruiting solution as innovative as its iconic buildings. Project Manager Syed Ome Salam built an ironclad business case for adopting Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud to foster an agile talent culture. With Oracle’s solution, Salam and his team have dramatically improved time to hire and time to productivity by leveraging these powerful capabilities.
This first implementation was such a success that Salam went on to deploy Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud at one of Aldar’s subsidiaries in a matter of weeks. The Recruitment department proudly says time is back on its side.
American Diabetes Association—Christa Wilson, Managing Director
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has a network of more than 1.5 million healthcare professionals, staff, volunteers, and members making rapid advances in the prevention, treatment, and cure of diabetes. But its disparate, aging human capital management (HCM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems were failing to keep pace with the organization’s innovation. Managing Director Christa Wilson deployed Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud to provide one source of truth for all HR and financial data, resulting in improved organizational agility, decision-making, and workforce management. Modules implemented with Oracle Platinum Partner Evosys include Oracle Time and Labor Cloud, Oracle Talent Acquisition, Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence, Oracle Financials, and Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service. The ADA is now moving at cloud speed and achieving these benefits.
BRAC Bank—Faisal Hussain, Head of Organizational Development
BRAC Bank, the fastest-growing bank in Bangladesh with a market capitalization of US$1 billion, needed an HCM and ERP solution that could keep pace with its rapid expansion. With a background in both HR and finance, Faisal Hussain, SVP and head of organizational development, was ideally suited for the task. Hussain chose Oracle as the innovation partner in transforming the bank into an even more nimble, talent-centric organization. His team is deploying Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud in record time and has already achieved a 35 percent decrease in manual processing only three months after going live with Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud. Process automation such as having resumes directly feed into the career portal without manual entry helped drive this dramatic improvement. BRAC Bank is now going live with Oracle Performance Management Cloud, Oracle Talent Review and Succession Management for Midsize Cloud Service, Oracle Workforce Compensation Cloud Service, Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service, Oracle Sourcing, and Oracle Supplier Qualification Management for Midsize Cloud Service.
Already recognized as the Best Bank for SMEs, BRAC’s greater agility with Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle ERP Cloud is helping position it to become the #1 bank in Bangladesh.
Emerson—Jim Rhodes, Vice President, Human Resources Information Systems
Emerson, a global leader in technology and engineering, was transforming its business to deliver even more value to customers. Pivotal to its organizational transformation was making key strategic acquisitions. Jim Rhodes, vice president of human resources information systems, led the worldwide deployment of Oracle HCM Cloud to replace existing on-premises solutions in support of Emerson’s evolving business model. Rhodes undertook a phased implementation, rolling out core HR and benefits modules to more than 7,500 acquired employees across 44 countries in only five months. Thanks to Rhodes’ strong leadership and team communication, the project finished on time with acquired employee data in the system prior to open enrollment. Rhodes and his team achieved this milestone despite several concurrent projects and competing staff demands. The implementation’s success supports Emerson’s business goals of better, faster decision-making through analytical insight and streamlined processes—and provides the foundation for continued Oracle HCM Cloud expansion in 2018 that includes the payroll module and 30,000 additional users.
Smart Dubai Government—Huda Al Hashimi, GPPS Director
Smart Dubai Gov (SDG) is the technology arm of Smart Dubai, whose mission is to deliver world-class smart services and infrastructure to create sustained happiness. Dubai Careers is the shared service group responsible for acquiring top talent to fill vacancies at 37 government entities.

Oracle’s innovation has helped Dubai Careers deliver a faster path to happiness.
