Optimizing HR with IBM and Oracle

IBM Chief Human Resource Officer

Today’s competitive environment requires new things of us as businesses, as leaders, as workers.

New skills and fields of expertise.

New ways of thinking and working.

Forward-thinking business leaders know that people are their most valuable asset… that it’s their people who will lead their organizations to success.

And HR departments are under growing pressure to better help their companies succeed.

The IBM 2010 Global Chief Human Resource Officer Study reveals insights from more than 700 chief human resource officers across 61 countries.

The study finds that to support future success, HR departments must rapidly cultivate creative leaders, mobilize for speed and flexibility, and capitalize on collective intelligence.

IBM and Oracle have three key recommendations to help HR executives enable these imperatives and optimize their HR operations.

First – unify talent management and ERP to enable future growth.

Strong talent management planning capabilities help you attract, develop, and retain the best people.

And by unifying talent management and other global workforce information with your organization’s ERP system, you can align HR goals with those of the overall organization.

Second – automate HR services to significantly reduce operational costs and empower your employees.

Self-service automation not only frees HR from the time and labor involved with performing routine tasks, but also allows HR to focus on more strategic activities that can grow the organization.

And finally, use information to make better business decisions.

Analytics harnesses enterprise data and turns that data into insight that can help you make more intelligent workforce decisions.

And tools that enable workforce knowledge sharing and global collaboration can significantly improve employee decision-making and productivity, while also reducing costs.

IBM and Oracle have been working together for over 25 years.

IBM’s vast experience in helping organizations effectively implement HR solutions, combined with Oracle’s human capital management software applications, make the IBM and Oracle team the partners of choice.

Together, IBM and Oracle can help you break down the cultural and organizational silos that often exist in HR departments, and implement a standard, consistent global HR strategy…

… a strategy that allows HR to support business goals and growth by cultivating creative leaders, mobilizing for speed and flexibility, and capitalizing on collective intelligence.
