Tech Titan Transforms Its Global HR Systems

The Challenge

A multibillion-dollar technology firm, with more than 140,000 employees across 180 countries, was struggling with multiple customized, outdated HR systems. Maintenance costs were high. Processes were cumbersome and riddled with heavy paperwork. And data was inaccessible in real time. The company needed a modern HR system to standardize and simplify processes, reduce maintenance costs and empower employees with easy access to data. 

Our Approach

Cognizant implemented a company-wide Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud solution—first piloting the program in 15 countries, then rolling it out globally—followed by implementing a Workforce Compensation platform across 65 countries. This complex transformation was executed in just nine months with Oracle, converting active employee records from multiple legacy sources to a single global HR system. Employees’ data was loaded into the Cloud Compensation application, thus transforming the business.

Transforming the company’s HR systems established a strong foundation for integrating current and emerging processes. It also provided a platform to support complex technical integrations with third-party vendors.

An Improved Experience for Managers and Employees Alike

Cognizant’s Oracle HCM Cloud solution simplifies the company’s HR systems. Processes are now much more aligned with a more efficient workplace.
