The absence management can use some improvement. Due to all the flexible working, the part with work schedules could be a little bit more flexible. We were demonstrating the reporting tool, and there was one competitor that had a solution that was not yet included in Oracle. Its reporting tool is fine. We had to do a presentation, and there was some other company doing a presentation of a specific reporting tool, and they were able to show a window in a window. That feature was very impressive, and that's not yet possible within Oracle. It might get added in the future. It is nice when you have a kind of dashboard with a graph, and you can easily compare it with another graph.

I think the interfaces could be improved because when you're going into the landing page, the interfaces look a bit blunt when they could be more user-friendly. I'd like to see some additional modules around direct integration into healthcare devices. If you have a lot of wearable devices wher the information could be directly put into the system it might be able to predict the probability that someone might go on sick leave, for example. Health and wellness could be incorporated into the system and it would be good to see integration with the wearables within the product. I'd also like to see more integration with AI.

I think they should have a larger data center in China, which would significantly increase the access speed from my current workspace. The access and speed should be increased.

Cloud learning can be improved. There should be better integration with courses from other platforms. The courses should be able to be brought into the system and available for the user's software company. In a future release, Oracle needs to provide a tool that is easily customizable. It also requires a lot of effort trying to develop in Oracle Cloud. There should be a visual builder tool like they provide for Oracle customer for visual customer services. This visual builder is a similar type of service for all applications that is available and it would be much better.

The solution is still quite young, as a cloud service. They just need to keep enhancing, listening to the customers, and enhancing the business needs of the customers. They need to really get their student administration system out. They need to get that done so that we can purchase that and implement it. All systems are still growing, and they're enhancing those. I can't say really a specific area of functionality, or feature is lacking. It goes back to overall just listening to the clients and the business needs and enhance from that. The product needs to keep improving the integration tools and the tools to load the data - that whole mechanism - in order to allow for flexibility in the configuration.

It is a cloud solution, so we cannot do much customization. However, if you have a past license, you can do the customization, but unfortunately, we don't have a past license. If we had that, we would have been 100% happy.

There should be more digital assistance included, like chatbots. The manager should have more control over direct and indirect reports. In short, the user experience and the user-interface need to be enhanced — especially for management.

It would be very nice if we were able to roll back transactions from data that was loaded with the data loader.

From the feedback that I get, the functional side of the payroll could be improved. Customers need an additional solution to run their core HR, and cloud coverage is not extensive enough.

The interface is easy already, but if you improve user interface — any upgrade of that sort — they will improve the product. We notice an improvement with every update and they should continue to do that. In our next phase of the deployment, we want to implement the financial modules which has been part of our plan for a while. That is just the deployment of something that already exists in the product. Oracle HCM in some countries only has the payroll module on-premises. We can use it that way, but we would like them to include all countries to be cloud so that it is available in our preferred deployment. Currently, payroll in Egypt is on-premises only because of regulations. We need to be on the cloud so we look forward to that. Right now, we don't need anything that is really a new feature. Our company will start to more fully utilize the current features already available.

Sometimes implementation documentation is a bit behind. Some customers like to manage things themselves after the initial implementation and they find that a bit difficult. Also -but I think that this is the case for all solutions with such a functional extent- you feel that different teams are working on the different modules, but this is normal because everybody has their own specialization. In the next release, I would like to see a some further updates to the recruitment module. I would like to see the preboarding extended so that it sends out notifications through personal email. That would be very useful.

The features available in EBS should be available on the cloud as well. When these features are not available on the cloud, it's hard to convince customers to migrate. The solution needs to allow for more integrations and customizations.

The recruitment aspect is good, but it's new and it still needs some enhancements. In the future, we hope it will be similar to Taleo.
