Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud is Casas Javer’s first cloud solution, but company leaders see it as a first step toward a larger cloud commitment. “Cloud computing is an irreversible train,” says Casas Javer CIO Juan Angel Montalvo. “That’s because the cloud provides a number of benefits for our employees, including giving them access to important functionality from any location and any time they need it.”

    Personal mantra: “If you don’t know, learn. If you already know, apply. If you know and have applied, improve.”


In addition, Oracle Cloud offers a robust IT infrastructure with scalable applications and access to industry best practices, Montalvo says. He also appreciates how quickly updates and new features become available via the cloud compared to having his IT department make changes onsite.

“The cloud model is exciting because it can help those of us in IT generate new ideas for the business to work in new ways,” Montalvo says. “As the cloud continues to mature, more and more companies will use it for mission-critical applications, and eventually everything may move to the cloud.”
