Drivestream takes to the Cloud to maximize human capital performance and drive global expansion

Drivestream Inc. is a leading provider of management and IT consulting services. Founded in 2002, the company provides strategic advice and tactical support for implementing, upgrading, maintaining, and supporting Oracle Cloud applications, as well as Oracle’s PeopleSoft, Oracle Hyperion, and Oracle Business Intelligence solutions. Drivestream incorporates innovative methodologies with proprietary tools and high-performance employees to bring extreme efficiency to solving complex business and technical challenges for large enterprises and midsize companies.

Drivestream is a professional services firm. Our people are our product. We needed a global HR system to move our Drivestream Career Model away from a paper-based process and provide the best possible career path for our people. With Oracle HCM Cloud performance management, everything is in the cloud. Now our performance management process makes our employees feel more empowered and more in charge of their careers, and it allows the company to continue to attract and retain world-class talent.

  • Empower the executive team with global insight and agility to make strategic decisions to support rapid growth  
  • Automate and improve the Drivestream Career Model (a comprehensive performance management process allowing employees to set goals and track performance against attributes of the next level in their career path) to retain top technical and business-process consulting professionals
  • Deploy a globally integrated, highly available, easy-to-deploy HR management platform that can scale quickly to support company growth

Why Drivestream, Inc. Chose Oracle

“We evaluated several HCM and performance management solutions. After evaluating on-premise versus cloud-based applications, we selected Oracle HCM Cloud Service because of Oracle’s vision and commitment to HCM in the cloud, as well as its ability to deliver easy-to-deploy, enterprise-class human capital management on a global scale. It was the clear choice for Drivestream. Our continued growth combined with our ability to provide more functionality and features to our employees and executives without increasing our HR or IT headcount shows that our choice has paid off.”
