Session Summary for Attendees:  VBCS—One of the three elements of an end-to-end position management solution in the public sector. Most of the public sector prefers to manage their workforce as positions rather than simply jobs. Oracle HCM SaaS delivers the main ingredient, but it needs a fair bit of seasoning. The missing parts are the strategic and operational planning.

This session will start with a quick introduction to the business need and a full solution based on a UK government solution we have jointly been working on. The main presentation will look in detail at what was needed in PBCS to deliver the operational position planning. Working with product development, this PoC completes the full life cycle.

This is a real-life solution using VBCS development for extending Fusion Cloud. If you are interested in the strategic planning component, this uses EPBCS and will be presented in the EPM stream.
