Abundant Opportunities in the Lucrative HCM Domain
Even before the pandemic struck, enterprises were readily adopting HCM solutions to enhance HR functions as well as drive deeper and actionable insights to boost employee productivity.
Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and continuation of remote work set up globally, there is an increased requirement for HCM offerings (especially cloud-based) to manage scattered workforce. This is providing further impetus to the HCM market.
The worldwide HCM software market is likely to witness a CAGR of 6.7% between 2021 and 2026 and reach $24.64 billion, per a Mordor Intelligence report.
Oracle is one of the leading players in the HCM domain. The company’s HCM cloud solutions are widely being adopted by business as part of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) cloud application suite. Further, the migration of several large-scale SAP SE SAP clients to Fusion ERP cloud and Fusion HCM is an upside.
In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, Oracle reported 30% increase for its Fusion HCM business.
Nonetheless, Oracle needs to watch out for stiff competition in the HCM software space from the likes of SAP, Workday WDAY and Automatic Data Processing ADP.
At present, Oracle carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 (Strong Buy) Rank stocks here.
