Human Capital Management (HCM)

Move Your Organization Forward with Business Intelligence Tools

Even with advances in cloud-based applications and service delivery, IT managers still must choose between data-center-style computing and using the cloud in particular circumstances. Likewise, developers have to decide whether they should use traditional programming methodologies or the latest DevOps programming tools such as Oracle Fusion HCM. In a world where markets are continually being formed, reformed, and disrupted in, IT infrastructure needs to be fluid. 

When cloud applications were first introduced, they were devoted to using Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). People perceived the “workload” as simply data but had little or no idea how cloud applications would process this data. Today, we view the workload as a group of modules that support the application. Each application module may be better suited for a particular type of cloud or in-house solution. Rather than building applications from the ground up, a competent cloud user will look for a way they can run their applications on the most flexible computing infrastructure efficiently and effectively. Here’s how to go about it:

Choose the right cloud

In the past, the hardware was made in a way that protected your applications from failures. In the age of cloud computing, your applications have to be fault-tolerant without relying on the supporting hardware. But what servers should you use, how are the servers and the general infrastructure maintained, and who should manage the servers?

Choosing a tool such as the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure means that even the most recent DNS services for your IaaS applications can run alongside SaaS applications such as HCM Cloud applications as well as cloud-native PaaS applications.

Update your infrastructure offerings for better performance

As an example, Oracle introduced infrastructure offerings, including X7 and Intel’s Skylake processors back at OpenWorld 2017. The former provided you with:

  • 52 cores of physical or virtual configurations
  • 768 GB memory
  • 51 TB solid-state storage space, and
  • 50 GB per second network connectivity

This infrastructure translates to 3.9 million IOPS (input/output operations per second), which is a server with a higher magnitude than compared to what public cloud servers provide.

Also, Oracle is working alongside NVIDIA to provide users with graphic processor units (GPUs) in their IaaS servers. These units will come in handy if you use math-intensive applications such as analytics such as HCM reports, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, and simulation. In the past, such resources were only found in data centers.

Oracle HCM Reports Help Your Organization Thrive

Even after the invention of cloud technology, the synergizing of workload has been difficult to achieve. Proper synergy helps developers build, assess, and validate, and deploy applications. It also empowers you to migrate these enterprise applications to the cloud when a need for on-demand resources arises or when internal resource consumption hike. However, choosing the right cloud solution and regularly updating the infrastructure is necessary if you are to achieve workload synergy.
