Rotterdam chooses Oracle HCM Cloud to reduce costs

More than 10,000 employees to profit from self-service capabilities in Oracle Global HR.

By Duncan Macrae

The City of Rotterdam has selected Oracle Global Human Resources (HR) Cloud, part of Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, as a basis for improving its HR processes.

The city previously deployed Oracle Talent Management Cloud to support management development, matching and outplacement processes.

It is hoped that Oracle HCM Cloud will play a pivotal role in supporting the city’s goals of automating HR processes to lower cost and boost efficiency, which is necessary due to national policies to broaden the tasks of Dutch municipalities, while tightening the budgets. The new solution is expected to positively impact more than 10,000 employees who will benefit from its various self-service capabilities.

A long-standing customer, Rotterdam had already standardised on Oracle business software in 2005. By selecting Oracle HCM Cloud, the Rotterdam believes it is protecting its investment in existing software and development.

Björn van Rosengarten, manager IT at the City of Rotterdam, said: "Municipalities are increasingly dependent of advanced IT solutions which boost efficiency, reduce costs and improve employee productivity. With Oracle HCM Cloud, we expect to realise these goals, while at the same time leveraging the significant Oracle expertise in our organisation.

Oracle president Mark Hurd said: "The City of Rotterdam is a long-time, valued Oracle customer. The City has chosen to expand its HR footprint with Oracle HCM Cloud, the most complete HCM solution available today to help it meet key strategic goals. Oracle HCM Cloud will help propel the City of Rotterdam via built-in intelligence that only Oracle can deliver."

The City of Rotterdam will start preparations for the roll-out of Oracle HCM Cloud in November 2013 with two pilot projects. It expects to fully deploy the new solution in April 2014.
