Do you often find that your team struggles with performing their daily tasks? The data to drive strategic plans and allocate budget isn't adequate, reporting is fragmented and often adhoc, and close processes take longer than usual. Oracle sees a core reason for this struggle is that there is no integrated approach to financial planning, forecasting, reconciliation & close and reporting. Processes are fragmented; most organisations take an annual approach; there is no direct input from operational areas; slow planning practices are not keeping pace with changing business conditions. More significantly, spreadsheets are still the most commonly used tool, especially with planners outside of finance.

The Real Business Value of Getting Engaged with Your Employee Experience

Embarking on your transformation journey? It's easy to let the technical issues absorb all of your attention. But those that carve out time to create a purposeful end user adoption strategy, and to execute it, will have greater success. Training your employees post Go-Live should be more than a one-time delivery of information. Training is important, but more attention is required. So how can you make sure that your employees are actually using Oracle HCM cloud to its fullest extent?
