Join us for lunch to learn how you can create efficiencies that impact the bottom line through HR and Finance collaboration using Oracle’s unified cloud.

HR and Finance are responsible for the two crucial parts of any company: managing the money and your people. With cautious optimism in the Alberta business market, this is the time to cleanup and modernize back office functions and to utilize technology for HR and Finance to work better together to support achievement of the company’s financial goals.

Digital business strategies drive fierce competition across all industries. Modern technologies such as mobile, data analytics and cloud are therefore helping to bridge the gap between HR and Finance, allowing each function to contribute to business value and revenue generation. Along with a consistent, modern user experience, Oracle’s unified cloud suite shares HR and financial data, allowing a deeper view into your business, and value-creating cross functional reporting and analytics. A digital business-enabled relationship between HR and Finance will allow your organization to meet the competitive imperatives in your industry.
