Gain Control Over HR Data with Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse


Leveraging the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse can help HR leaders and organizations easily, quickly, and securely gain control over HR data. As an HR leader, you’re likely eager to discover insights and make decisions faster than ever. Whether you’re analyzing budgets, retention, or recruiting effectiveness, timely and trustworthy data is vital to your success. By taking more control over HR data management, you can be more confident in your analysis and more effective in influencing business decisions.

4 Crucial Areas of Control Over HR Data

Let’s explore four crucial areas of gaining control over HR data:

  1. Controlling your own shareable and secure workspace
  2. Capturing up-to-date data
  3. Trusting the data across the work group
  4. Adding computing power as needed

Shareable and Secure Workspace

First, set up a secure and shareable workspace in the Oracle Cloud. This ensures that sensitive HR recruiting data is available only to authorized users. Start by entering a few simple details in the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse. Next, upload an in-progress open position spreadsheet to drive collaboration around a single source of truth, rather than emailing and reconciling duplicate spreadsheets. After reviewing your imported data and saving your project in the Oracle Cloud, you’re all set with full control over HR data in your sharable and secure workspace.

Capturing Up-To-Date Data

Let’s add current interview-related information to our data set from Oracle and non-Oracle sources. Best of all, it’s live data. That means no waiting for periodic extracts. Fast importing ensures maximum efficiency, even with large data sets. Additionally, it’s all optimized for quick access later on. You can get a clear view of the data flowing into your analysis with data even joining automatically from both sources.

Trusting Data Across the Work Group

With everything in one place, let’s enrich your data set with centralized data transformations and formulas. Simply add a calculation column, create an interview sentiment comparison scoring formula using data from across the data set, and save your enriched data set to the Cloud. You can do so knowing that you’re preventing inconsistency and confusion. Across your work group, all of your data sets can be easily shared, trusted, and analyzed faster using the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and Oracle’s included Data Visualization for Desktop tool, Oracle Analytic Cloud service, or any other third-party tools.

Adding Computing Power as Needed

Taking control over HR data is not just about data preparation pipelines. The real payoff in HR data management is when you ultimately use that data. Going back to recruiting effectiveness analysis, it would take hours to process the millions of enterprise transactions with an underpowered CPU. However, with Oracle, analysts can increase processing power as needed to any analysis—reducing time by up to 90 percent—and then scale it back down to reduce costs. This brings your organization massive potential for productivity.


Gaining control over HR data can be easy, fast, powerful, and autonomous when you leverage the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse. You can vastly improve your HR analysis, reduce cost and complexity, unlock your creative potential, and take full control over HR data management.
