Oracle E-Business Suite HCM Release 12.1 is designed to help you make better decisions and be more competitive while lowering costs and increasing performance. Achieving this balance requires companies to have a global view of their operations. The ability to make informed decisions, work across boundaries, and manage the workforce globally benefits every organisation, no matter what size or industry. Businesses that achieve a truly global perspective will end up the winners, driving out complexity so that they can focus on value-added activities.
