Two hours of networking in the books. Had initial conversation with some vendors around the impact of Fusion on the HR Tech arena.
The response I’ve gotten so far is:
- It’s Oracle, so you aren’t likely to get what you expect. (Means nothing to me. I’m not likely to see it implemented in the next year or two, so plenty of time to work out the bugs.)
- It’s more complicated on the back end then you think as a user. (I don’t care how the sausage is made, I just want sweet tasty sausage.)
- We don’t service companies that would spend that much money. We’re “mid-market”, so we’re fine, thanks. (Sounds like a whole lot of denial.)
- We want to help our customers experience less pain when it comes to integrations, but we aren’t that good at it. We’re looking for a partner to help us with that. (Pulls another party into the fray, but a better response than the first three.)
