Example of new UX enhancements for Oracle HCM Cloud.
Oracle today announced new additions to the Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud portfolio. Part of Oracle Cloud Applications Release 13, the latest release of Oracle HCM Cloud introduces three new applications, major user experience enhancements, and extensions to existing HR modules. New innovations include powerful artificial intelligence (AI)-based recruiting features, as well as new health and safety and governance and risk capabilities.
To successfully manage and retain the best talent, organizations need access to the right technology to optimize the employee experience and anticipate and respond to changing workforce needs. The latest release of Oracle HCM Cloud empowers HR professionals to meet this challenge by combining all major HR functions on one platform to enable collaboration, optimize talent management, provide complete workforce insights, increase operational efficiency, and make it easy for everyone to connect on any device.
“The latest additions to Oracle HCM Cloud incorporate simple but powerful features that enable organizations to leverage the latest innovations to anticipate and plan for the future,” said Chris Leone, senior vice president, Oracle Applications Development. “By combining innovations in artificial intelligence (AI) and user experience with major enhancements to core HR modules, we are able to help HR leaders drive digital transformation and positive business outcomes.”

In addition to the new applications, Oracle has also introduced major user experience enhancements and significant additions to existing Oracle HCM Cloud modules. The new user experience puts the needs and experiences of users at the center of the design in a way that’s consistent, simple, and intuitive. The new design delivers a warm and approachable HR tool that people can use—it’s fast, familiar, and easy—mirroring platforms they are accustomed to using everyday as consumers, but now appearing in enterprise applications. It provides a common experience across all devices, including mobile, so business information can be accessed at all times; meanwhile, the instinctive user experience enables seamless and simple interactions with artificial intelligence built in to provide users with customized recommendations so they only see data that is adapted for them, such as role, location, and business. Users can complete self-service transactions and inquiries to help maintain data accuracy in the system to increase user participation and engagement. The new contemporary look and feel also enables organizations to more easily make customizations to best match their brand, corporate culture, and other enterprise software—from logos to color schemes.
Additions to existing Oracle HCM Cloud modules include:
