Cognizant Oracle Cloud Accelerator solution overview

  1. 1. solution overview | march 2014 The Cloud Challenge Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud applications provide companies the depth and breadth needed to transform their Human Resources (HR) processes for maximum efficiency and business agility. However, depending on the implementation method and acceleration approach, a typical cloud implementation initiative may not be always as swift, cost effective and simple as companies might wish. In our experience, traditional Oracle HCM Cloud implementations do bring a host of challenges that could delay time to value, decrease user adoption and introduce additional complexity to the overall solution. For example, data migration activity could be complex and lengthy in the absence of data conversion templates. Company line-of-business executives may not have visibility into the standardized business processes that are available in the cloud. Integration with legacy application can be complicated if prebuilt connectors are not available. The Solution We help our Information Services clients enhance The Cognizant Cloud Accelerator enables our clients to implement Oracle HCM Cloud in a much simpler and quicker manner so the business can start realizing benefits from the beginning of the project. Experience indicates we have saved our clients on average 20% to 30% of overall time and budget vs. a traditional approach to implementing Oracle HCM Cloud. Cognizant Cloud Accelerator is an integrated and preconfigured HR and Talent Management solution built on Oracle HCM Cloud. It can be adopted in the public cloud (Software as a Service), private cloud and on-premises deployment models. Cloud Accelerator adheres to a rapid implementation methodology, helping customers cut down on the costs and effort involved with lengthy implementation projects. The solution delivers process modeling, configuration workbooks, prebuilt data migration and integration tools.
