Integrating the New Financials Apps in the Cloud with Your Existing Apps

A guest post by Joe Gum, Senior Director, Financials Product Strategy, Oracle Applications

Mixing the old with the new can sometimes be problematic (i.e., clothing, siblings, home decor, management). But according to Oracle Senior Director Joe Gum, things work just fine when you're mixing older enterprise applications with new Oracle Financials Cloud Service. This new cloud solution can meet your integration requirements by using Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF Services), ADF Desktop Integration, File-Based Data Import, and reporting tools. These tools should streamline your decision-making process to adopt the cloud for your financial operations.

Referrals 2.0: What HCM Has Learned From Groupon and the “Like” Button

A guest post by Jim Milton, Senior Principal Product Manager, Oracle Applications

There are a billion consumers connected to one another via social networks. One billion of us! That’s a lot of eyeballs and a lot of opportunity for marketers to reach us online. They can choose to interrupt our conversations with low-performing display ads, or become the topic of conversation so that we spread the word more naturally through trusted recommendations and referrals.
