Show Date: June 17, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT


If you are currently thinking about moving to the HCM Cloud solutions offered by Oracle, SAP or Workday, you must not miss this show! Gartner’s Research VP Ron Hanscome has written the best report ever on their differences, strengths and weaknesses called “Seven Ways to Compare the Enterprise HCM Suite ‘Big Three’.”

On the extended show, he describes large chunks of the report, generally available only to Gartner clients. From the products’ differences in architecture, adoption, extensibility (the modern form of customization) to foreign functionality, Ron tells it like it is. And exactly what you need to know if you are a larger company picking your path to the Cloud.

So users of on-premise Oracle EBS, PeopleSoft Enterprise, and SAP R/3, don’t miss the most important show of the year. Industry-watchers, you’ll be there, too, of course.
