The use of contextual information that takes into account the holistic view of a worker is essential to foster a more engaged workforce and management team. Users expect the underlying data to give insight into the individual’s contributions and the overall impact to the company’s bottom line.

Application context passing to embedded reports is a unified approach for better information sharing within the Fusion Applications promoting equality of opportunity in the workplace. Contextual analysis provides immediately accessible and relevant contextualized reporting that can transform performance reviews. Organizations need to enable greater connectivity between the information in real-time reporting with other corporate information.

Use of the simplest and most cost effective analytics will lead to a solid career conversation driving top performance.
