Banco Popolare overcomes main corporate challenges thanks to Oracle HCM Cloud

Banco Popolare Società Cooperativa was an Italian bank, formed in 2007 from the merger of Banco Popolare di Verona e Novara (BPVN) and Banca Popolare Italiana (BPI). The bank merged with Banca Popolare di Milano on 1 January 2017.

To overcome today's competitive challenges, banks must attract the best talents who are able to meet the needs of the new generation of customers.

Banco Popolare has chosen Oracle as a partner because together they managed to solve a complex challenge in a short time and with satisfactory results.

Thanks to the HCM suite, we were able, in a global architecture, to link the information of individual resources by comparing them with each other.

Christian Louboutin: talent management using Oracle Cloud

Christian Louboutin, named for the eponymous designer, is a luxury shoe and handbag company created in 1992. It is present today in over 35 countries.


Christian Louboutin wanted to be able to identify the integrality of its workforce in over 36 countries, but also to find a compensation module to manage salary reviews, in addition to a budget module allowing it to establish and track a budget and make all the necessary reforecasts throughout the year. The company was therefore looking for an accessible cloud solution that was fast, easy to access and which would allow it, moreover, to protect its personal data thanks to limited access.


With Oracle HCM Fusion, Christian Louboutin has enhanced its talent management around the world. Oracle successfully provided solutions adapted to the size of the company, while also providing a customised service for the creation of a budgetary tool, developed based on Hyperion software and subsequently linked to the HR unit thanks to the creation of a special interface. Christian Louboutin can also adjust HR development, as the tool, at present only accessible to HR management, will later be available to team managers, and to the entire group workforce by 2020 or 2021.

We needed an accessible solution that was easy to use and fast. And above all we wanted to protect our personal data, and didn't want just anyone in the company to have access to the tool and be an administrator of the tool. We chose this solution, which enabled us to be the sole administrators of the tool.

—Magali Clément,
Head of Human Resources at Christian Louboutin
