My blogging has taken a back seat for the last few months while I've been doing a European Tour delivering bootamp training for Oracle Partners. I've been to Turkey, Spain, France (several times), UK (OK I live in the UK, but sometimes it's felt like I'm just visiting!), Finland, Poland, Belgium, USA all in the last 3 months. One of my colleagues kindly took on the trip to Dubai.... The bootcamps have covered Fusion HCM, Fusion Talent Management, Taleo Recruitment and Taleo Transitions.
While I've been away, Fusion Applications Release 8 came out and we are already working with it on a couple of our Fusion HCM projects.
It's a major release in terms of new functionality which has been introduced. The obvious one is Time and Labour, which is a much needed additional to the scope of the application. In future blogs, I will explore this in more detail. The introduction of Time and Labour, also coincides with a rewrite of the Absence processes.
There's also some useful integration between Taleo Recruitment and Fusion HCM. It's the first step, but looks promising as the two products become more integrated. Again, more on that in future blogs.
Now, I'm off to Paris and London for more of those bootcamps...
