What HR can learn from Marketing in this new Digital Age (Webinar)

The Digital Consumer vs The Digital Employee - What HR can learn from Marketing in this new Digital world 

There is no denying that the digital explosion has changed our consumer world in ways people had never thought possible. 

From banking, through to retail and even our leisure time, the digital disruption that has taken place has not just changed business models, it has changed and shifted the consumer paradigm about how we use and engage with these services. 

As a result, Marketing functions have transformed themselves to be able to engage with the digitally disrupted consumer. Many of these technologies are now being leveraged by the enterprise including HR. But is HR ready to engage with the digitally disrupted employee? Do they have the right strategy, skills and capabilities? What tips can we learn from marketing to help HR deliver value in this socially networked, digitally empowered new world? 

Join Oracle’s Senior Director of HCM Strategy and Transformation, Yazad Dalal, at this live webinar.

The lessons we can learn from marketing in how they have embraced the new world of the digital consumer

The new skills, knowledge and experiences HR professionals need to build capability in this new digital age

April Update - Visibility into New SaaS Functionality

Hello Oracle Cloud User,

Major releases are the primary vehicle for delivering new product functionality to the SaaS fleet. In addition, the SaaS fleet receives a monthly update. As you would expect, monthly updates address product issues discovered mid-release. But they can also serve as a vehicle for delivering "new features". The purpose of this communication is to provide visibility into new and enhanced functionality that is delivered off-cycle via monthly updates.

Your Action:  If you are focused on one of the product areas below, please check out the associated RCD and What's New documents (hosted on the cloud site) to learn about the recent changes. The Revision History section at the beginning of each document will serve as your pointer.
