Storyboarding for People Analytics with Oracle HCM Cloud


We live in a modern data-driven society, and decisions based on gut feelings are gone long now. The paradigm is shifting, and every business leader wants to back up their decision with some organizational data to make a measurable business outcome. The decisions can either be transactional or strategic, but what data will drive a business leader to make a decision?

Today, we will focus on the Oracle Fusion Cloud Applications, which may be your organization is considering to go on, or probably recently went live on it, and now figuring out how to use this system effectively to drive your business correctly.

What is Oracle HCM Cloud?

Oracle HCM Cloud is an industry-leading SaaS application that provides a new standard for the way businesses function and innovates. Its carefully architected functions empower organizations to manage their Human Capital most efficiently. A comprehensive suite covering Core HR, Benefits, Payroll, Recruiting, Onboarding, Learning, Performance Management, and many more form the foundation of the hire-to-retire employment lifecycle.

Challenges of using Oracle HCM Cloud?

After going live on Oracle Fusion, organizations quickly discover that the pre-packaged OTBI reports are very simplistic and do not provide meaningful business value. Several business leaders across the industry face significant headwinds almost daily to produce reports through OTBI or BI Publisher to run their operations. Producing visual dashboards presents an even more of a challenge as businesses eventually end up hiring extremely expensive consulting services.

Business KPIs around Diversity Index, Gender Parity, Exit Risk, Recruitment Analysis, Turnover, etc., become very hard to come by and require a complete development-test-deploy cycle. The bottom line is that Oracle Fusion HCM is an excellent solution for capturing business data. Still, it takes quite some time and energy to generate corporate reporting using the standard tools it provides.
