HumanConcepts announces new validated integration for Oracle

Integration Provides Extended Workforce Modeling and Visualization Technology to the Oracle® E-Business Suite Human Resource Management System

SAUSALITO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HumanConcepts, the leading provider of workforce decision support software, today announced that integration between OrgPlus Enterprise 3.3 and the Oracle® E-Business Suite Human Resource Management System 12.0 has been validated through the Oracle PartnerNetwork Application Integration Architecture for Partners (AIAP) initiative. Partners with validated integrations are able to provide customers with standards-based product integrations, tested by Oracle. The integration between HumanConcepts’ OrgPlus and the Oracle E-Business Suite enhances Oracle customers’ ability to visualize workforce data, communicate accurate organizational information and manage workforce change.

With OrgPlus Enterprise, named Top HR Product of 2008 by Human Resource Executive® magazine, customers will be able to extend the value of the rich workforce insight available from the Oracle E-Business Suite. Integrated with the Oracle E-Business Suite, OrgPlus enables non-HR personnel access to critical information without compromising Oracle security. “We use the combined solution to help significantly reduce workload and clarify organizational resources and structure to optimize our business; this solution gives us superior insight into critical information that drives our decision-making and enables us to maintain advantage in the highly-competitive, ever-changing global Medical Device market,” said Stuart Beesley, CIO, Smiths Medical.

The OrgPlus visual interface provides a secure, intuitive way for executives, human resources and line of business managers to access and act on workforce information in order to:

  • Streamline and manage departmental reorganizations or large-scale mergers and acquisitions by creating what-if scenarios of the proposed organization
  • Develop succession plans for key executives
  • Validate accuracy of workforce data (i.e. reporting relationships)

    Oracle has recently included the combined offering in Oracle’s global application sales demonstration environment. “With this validated integration, HumanConcepts has demonstrated their commitment to Oracle E-Business Suite HCM customers,” commented Anand Subbaraman, Director Product Strategy Applications, Oracle. “We expect to continue working closely with HumanConcepts, by showing the combined offering in our sales demonstrations and preparing joint whitepapers, to ensure that our mutual customers are aware of our tightly integrated solutions for organizational charting, modeling, and visualization.”

    OrgPlus integration with the Oracle E-Business Suite Human Resource Management System is designed for customers to quickly take advantage of the additional capabilities from HumanConcepts and includes:

  • Built-in Oracle E-Business Suite connectivity that simplifies extraction of key HR data from Oracle
  • Pre-defined chart views that provide visualization of HR data and metrics such as headcount analysis, performance indicators and span of control
  • Single sign on from the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Portal or Oracle WebCenter to enable secure access
  • Standard Oracle Portal integration packages for the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11 and Release 12 containing hyperlinks to context specific views.

    “We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with Oracle and its customers,” said Martin Sacks, CEO, HumanConcepts. “OrgPlus adds value throughout the Oracle E-Business Suite Human Resource Management System by bringing the rich Oracle data to life in a visual, hierarchical framework. The combined solution enables managers to not only have a clearer understanding of current workforce dynamics, but make fact-based decisions when planning for the future.”

    Validation through Oracle PartnerNetwork Application Integration Architecture for Partners gives customers confidence that integrations between Oracle Applications and complementary partner solutions have been validated and the products work together as designed. This can help reduce risk, improve system implementation cycles, and provide for smoother upgrades and simpler maintenance. Validation through this initiative applies a rigorous technical process to review the integrations of third-party software to Oracle Applications products, including productized repeatable integrations from system integrators. Oracle provides tools, resources and training to assist partners in the integration. Partners who have successfully validated their integrations are authorized to use the “Integrated with Oracle” logo. For more information, please visit at
