Imagine If You Will - The Oracle HCM Cloud Solution Library

Foreword:  When I was young, I tried like heck to develop a Rod Serling imitation.  I was a big fan of The Twilight Zone series, including the various revivals.  Alas, I was unable to get anywhere close and eventually gave it up.  But I admittedly still love the phrase "Imagine if you will".  So it's cool that I get to use it here.  See?  Work can be fun.

Imagine if you will the opportunity to ease the implementation and use of Oracle HCM Cloud Applications through learning by example.  Wouldn't it be helpful to have examples of known good solutions to look over?   Configurations, approaches to common challenges, best practices...plus the ability to upload those solutions to a non-production instance to see how they work?

Enter the new and improved HCM Cloud Solution Library – a collection of known good solutions provided in the form of Solution Packages.  User can review the contents online, download and review specific solutions, and upload those solutions to a non-production instance for evaluation.

Just in time for Oracle OpenWorld 2017, I'm please to share with you the new and improved HCM Cloud Solution Library, available right now on Oracle Cloud Customer Connect*.  Just click here and choose "HCM Cloud Solution Library" from the list under "Global Human Resources".




We've admittedly started small:  some solution packages for Talent Management and one for U.S. Payroll Elements.   But we'll soon be growing with Solution Packages for Payroll in the U.K., Canada, Latin American, and Asia Pacific.  New on the road map comes Absence Management, Benefits and Compensation.  What comes after will be determined by what we hear from Oracle partners and customers.




So what's in a Solution Package?  First, an annotation providing a technical description of the business objects and data provided in the solution package. Second, the actual data itself, in a file format that supports the relevant upload tool.  For example, the Talent Management solution packages are in a file format that's ready for the upload feature in Functional Setup Manager.  The U.S. Payroll Elements solution package is in a format ready for the Payroll Batch Loader.

You'll also note in the user interface that we've included a "Solution Library Overview" link.  That document provides deeper detail about what the Solution Library is and how to use it.  We've also include the HCM Cloud Application release number for each solution package.  And, yes, we'll be updating those solution packages as new releases become available.

Our hope is that, by providing examples based on known good solutions, we'll help increase the realization of the SaaS promise for "better, faster and cheaper" experiences in implementing and using Oracle HCM Cloud Applications.

So check it out.  And feel free to click the "Share Your Feedback With Us" link to let us know what you think.  Or you could just hug the comments here.

*If you're not already a member of Oracle Cloud Customer Connect, may I suggest that you get it done now?  Signup is quick and free.  There's a wealth of information, tips and tricks from Oracle people, partners and customers.

Some Numbers on SaaS

It's money that matters
You know that it's true
It's money that matters
Whatever you do
               --From "It's Money That Matters" by Randy Newman

So we've just gotten through earnings announcements for several SaaS companies, including my own employer (Oracle).  And as the numbers come out, I see lots of different voices interpreting those numbers inaccurately.  Because SaaS has an entirely different business model from that of the legacy enterprise applications market.  So let me throw out some numbers on SaaS for your consideration.  

Before I jump into numbers, I should note that all of the numbers provided here come from one of my favorite industry reports:  the annual Pacific Crest Securities Private SaaS Company Survey Results.  I'm using the most recent issue, which came out in October 2016.  So I won't be disclosing any special Oracle margin numbers...only industry averages.

Now about those numbers:

  • New Customer Acquisition Cost:  The average industry cost of acquiring a new SaaS customer is around $1.12 for every dollar of revenue from the initial subscription.  So wait a second.  We're losing 12 cents for every revenue dollar received from a new customer over the life of their subscription?  Why would anyone in their right mind want to do that?  Read on and you'll see...
  • Upsell Customer Acquisition Cost:  The industry average for acquiring a customer through upselling (roughly defined here as selling SaaS products from a different application suite or pillar) is about 22 cents for every revenue dollar realized.  Now we're talking!  That leaves me a margin after CAC ("Customer Acquisition Cost") of 78 cents on the revenue dollar.  But it gets better...
  • Expansion CAC:  The average CAC for expansion selling (expanding the customer footprint through selling additional products and services within the same application suite or pillar) is 20 cents on the revenue dollar.  Wow, a margin of 80 cents on the revenue dollar after CAC...let's book that trip to Vegas!  But now let's look at the real winner...
  • Renewal CAC:  The CAC for an existing customer who simply renews their subscription is roughly 12 cents.  That's right, an 88 cent margin on the revenue dollar after CAC!
Before we get too giddy with our visions of wealth beyond our wildest dreams, keep in mind that we still need to cover operating costs, R&D, and other traditional P&L costs from those margins.  But I'm disregarding those costs for the purposes of this discussion.  Head to your local junior college for an introductory course in Accounting if you want a feel for this stuff.

So when you hear about or read over financial results from SaaS vendors or SaaS product lines, keep in mind the following concepts:

  • Grow in new customers (usually expressed as new customer or new account revenue, both in dollars and percentages) is a great leading indicator of potential future profitability, but it's more than likely a drag on margins in the present.  As we see above, acquiring new customers is expensive.
  • The key to determining how well a company will generate profits or earnings in the short term is to look at the trend for upsells, expansion sales, and customer renewals...especially the latter. Renewals are often expressed through a rather negative metric...Account Churn.  The lower the Account Churn, the higher the renewal rate.
  • Working through the logic here, you may come to the conclusion that a SaaS company or product line could become extremely profitable with minimal growth in new customers.  And you would be correct.  So long as the growth in new accounts roughly replaces the accounts lost in churn, one can still do quite well by simply tending to your current stable of SaaS customers.  Because the money is in the renewals, the upsells, and the expansion sales.

The next time you read an annual or quarterly report, or when you see a press release touting growth through acquiring new customers, your immediate thought should be something along the lines of "That's a nice indicator of future earnings potential.  But before I take that too seriously, tell me about your customer retention.  How is your renewal rate?  How much revenue growth are you realizing from your existing customers?"  '

This is why having a Center of Excellence focused on customer success is so very important in the SaaS world.  Because successful customers are happy customers.  And happy customers renew their subscriptions.  And folks, that's where the profits are found.  That's where the money is.  And it's money that matters.

Diving Into Deep Links

I had another one of those eye-opening customer experiences recently.  I was engaged in a web conference with an Oracle customer discussing some UX extensibility features that come out of the box with HCM Cloud Applications.  During the conference, we got into a brief demonstration that included utilization of some deep links. Went over pretty well, people got excited, we had a rousing exchange on the benefits of deep linking and I was feeling pretty good about where we were going. right up to the end of the session, which was reserved for Q&A.  That’s when somebody asked “Could we revisit deep links for a minute?  Help me understand what a deep link is and how it works.”  

Popped my little balloon of pride in a job well done right away…I’d demonstrated nifty features without explaining the basics.  I suspect this happens in a great many demos, where people smile and nod about things they don’t understand - and are often afraid to ask about (kudos on this point to the person who asked the question during my demo) - while the demo speeds on through the script.  Yeah, really...happens more often that one would expect.  It pays to take time with the fundamentals.  So back to my specific experience, let’s eliminate any lack of knowledge about deep links by going through a layman’s explanation right here.

Within the context of enterprise applications, a deep link is a URL that opens and directs a user to a specific point in an application other than the application’s home page.  The general idea is to reduce the number of mouse clicks needed to perform a task that requires functionality found in another application or location.  Fewer clicks = greater ease of use = user does what you want them to do more quickly and/or more often.  So, if I wanted to look up information about deep linking on Wikipedia, rather than linking to a home page (http://en.wikipedia.org) and searching for information on deep links, I would link directly to the page discussing deep links (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_linking).

In Oracle HCM Cloud, the deep links are a bit more complicated only because each link includes more information.  But the same concept still applies.  For example, if you were on the Person Management screen the link that would show in your browser would like something like this: 

https:///hcmCore/faces/FndOverview?fnd=%3B%3B%3B%3Bfalse%3B256%3B%3B%3B&fndGlobalItemNodeId=itemNode_workforce_management__person_management&_adf.no-new-window-redirect=true&_adf.ctrlstate=1b532wjs56_5&_afrLoop=6435279788503&_afrWindowMode=2&_afrWindowId=xkhwjhcv9#

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking right now…”good grief, that’s a load of technical gobbledygook that I don’t want to deal with.  Forget this!”  But just hang with me for a minute while we quickly break this mess down.  

First, we care about the base URL:  https:///hcmCore/faces/FndOverview? This essentially calls out the hierarchy or scheme for the application.  

Next we care about the parameter:  fndGlobalItemNodeID.  This essentially indicates that the link should include a page id value.  

Just as you might expect, next we include the page id value:  itemNode_workforce_management_person_management.  

All the remaining hooey you see in the original link is session data that will be automatically generated once the user has authenticated…so we don’t need it for our deep link.  

So, combining our base URL with our parameter and our parameter value, we come up with the following bookmarkable URL to Person Management:  https:///hcmCore/faces/FndOverview?fndGlobalItemNodeID=itemNode_workforce_management_person_management.  

Ta da!  There’s our deep link (note that a user who has yet to log in will be redirected to an authentication screen aka login screen).

So now you know the details of how a deep link works and how to build one manually.  But wait…there’s more!  One of the Simplified UI Extensibility tools that comes with Oracle HCM Cloud Applications provides a point-and-clink method of creating deep links.  You can follow this deep link to learn about that.

The Key To The Kingdom

I spend quite a bit of my time these days advising Oracle customers on implementing and using HCM Cloud Applications.  Makes sense, as that is the primary role of my group 😉  And I’m often asked about where I get my own information.  While I get some of it through hands-on experimenting and experience, I also have a treasure trove of online information.  And it’s all centralized.  And I’m going to share it…this is "the key to the kingdom”.

My go-to reference for information on the HCM Cloud comes from a linked index of all the white papers for HCM Cloud Applications.  The index is maintained as Oracle Support Document ID 1504483.1 titled “All White Papers for Fusion Applications HCM”.  You can find it here.  Yes, you need an account with My Oracle Support to access this info.  If you’re an Oracle customer or partner without a MOS account, I can only say that you’re reeeeeally behind the curve…get that done today.  Hit the comments if you need help.

This doc is a wonderful guide to the type of information that Oracle customers and partners need for HCM Cloud Applications.  You’ll want to bookmark it and check back often - it’s being updated continuously.  To give you and idea of the depth and breadth of this resource, at the risk of being redundant, here is the list of white papers (including doc id) as of the date I write this:
