Oracle's Acquisition Strategy Continues Part 5

Oracle Buys Haley - Expands Oracle’s Applications Drive into Social Services; Adds Enterprise Policy Automation for Legislated and Regulated Industries

Oracle Buys Haley (Ruleburst)

Today, Oracle announced it has agreed to acquire RuleBurst Holdings Limited, the parent company of Haley Limited, a leading provider of policy modeling and automation software, to create an end-to-end solution for social services agencies.

Social service agencies are moving to commercial software to automate entitlements. With limited resources to serve a growing constituency, these agencies need to administer and distribute entitlements consistently and accurately as defined by the underlying legislation. Haley's policy automation platform translates legislation and policies into defined, automated rules that are deployed in an application.

Together with Oracle’s ERP and Siebel CRM applications, Oracle expects to create the first packaged software solution for social services agencies with an enhanced case management application utilizing Haley to drive eligibility determinations.

Haley management and employees are expected to join Oracle to form a global business unit focused on enterprise policy automation solutions across multiple industries. Haley’s CEO Dominic O’Hanlon is expected to lead the business unit as Senior Vice President and General Manager.

Australian Computer Society: Presentation Wrap

Last night I presented to the Australian Computer Society in Melbourne and took the chance to talk to people a little bit about Oracle, some of the work that we are doing and how people end up finding jobs with us.

Special thanks go out to Yasas and Daphne from ACS for their support in organising this event, and also to Fiona and Amrit from the Young IT committee for helping out and not to forget Dylan (Swinburne Student Ambassador), who did the poster. Thanks also go to Wayne Moncur, Vic Immediate Past Chair for attending the event.

From what I could see we had approximately 40 people attend and it was good to talk to people before and after the presentation as well. One surprise was that in a room full of IT people only myself and one other person currently uses Twitter (I would have thought there would have been a few more). It is great to see such enthusiasm about Oracle in the IT community and hopefully the session was informative for everyone.

Companies do Recruit in both Booms and Busts

I was reading a blog by Kevin Wheeler a bit earlier on today, the blog was about recruitment, his opening two paragraphs really got me thinking about recruitment in today's environment in what some analysts are calling a potential recession (depending on who you speak to). The quote is:

"When the economic markets look grim, hiring is at a standstill, and budgets are frozen, perspective is what is important. As some have said, “When things are good, they are never as good as they seem. And when things are bad, they are never as bad as they seem.”

We should all use the pause in the hectic pace of the past few years to begin and frame the future we want when we emerge. And we will emerge. I am not sure when, of course, but within a few years we will be back at the global hiring process with renewed vigor and increased challenges."

Over the past few weeks I have had a number of people contact me to see if Oracle is still hiring, if our roles have been put on hold, etc... The answer is YES we are still hiring. While the financial crisis affects us all and will do for some time, from a Recruitment perspective - we still have projects to work on at Oracle or deals to close. We are still busy and still have a lot of work we are doing.

Many of the roles I am recruiting for are for long term projects that are committed to for completion, or for sales positions that have a strong pipeline to follow up on.

In the overall IT industry things may slow down, but companies will still hire people during this time and business still will be conducted. When I was Recruiting for Hewlett Packard in 2002 after the Dotcom Bust we still hired many people into a variety of roles.

As Kevin mentioned things are never as bad as they seem - so if you are interested in Oracle as a potential employer contact us - despite the financial crisis we still have many roles to fill and one of them may be that role you are looking for.
