Hi All -

I have completed my MBA HR from REGULAR COLLEGE. I am planning to move to ERP and thought Oracle HRMS course (Functional) to be the best option. I am working with a Software company in chennai as a General HR and in total i have around 2 years of experience in Recruitment and General HR ..Want to know Sap HR is Better or Oracle HRMS or Peoplesoft HR .

Which is in more demand right now and which one will be more helpful for an HR to build career and reach the highest echelons of a professional organization ? and is it worth taking the material and reading ourself or taking some training in some institutes..Please let me know and if you know any good institutes which provide this training pls let me have the details

During my research, I found out that the Oracle University is directly conducting Oracle 11 i HRMS courses. I contacted the authorized centers for oracle and go to know that this course is not given to them and that it is directly handled by Oracle. I also got to know that the course fee is around 1 lakh.

I enquired about this to my friends and got to know that irrespective of where you do the course they would ask for implementation experience for job. Is it worth doing this course in this case?

And would like to know what is the scope of Sap HR and is it worth doing it from Siemens or to go for local training center itself

I also got to know that there is no examination for the Oracle HRMS course ,where as SAP conducts certification exams for SAP HRMS Course. Will it have any impact on the certificates that we get. Will I be "Oracle certified" and will i get a certificate of that sort or will it be like a participation.

Let me know which one will be better one ..

I would expect some suggestions from you all seniors especially Leo sir from you and others also

Hi Sushma and Kapil,

All 3 Sap/Oracle and Peoplesoft HR have their own markets and are equally in demand, although as you know Peoplesoft had been acquired by Oracle so Oracle will try to market its own product than the Peoplesoft as per my understanding.

If you are planning to do any course then for Oracle and Peoplesoft you have to contact Oracle University they offer course in Oracle as well as Peoplesoft, if you go for SAP then do it from recognized channel only

For all the courses you would be given a Certification like if you'll do a Functional course you will be HRMS Functional Certified, if you are doing project management you will be PMP and so on.

And on- hands work experience is a major factor, any Company where you would apply would like to see candidate with similar previous experience either the project is new implementation, Upgrade, Conversion,Migration etc.

In India Oracle ERP market is not that wide whereas you will find most companies using Peoplesoft, JD Edwards and SAP.

But in near future Oracle is likely to grow worldwide as they are now coming with Oracle Fusion

I have also heard that now SAP and Microsoft will collaborate to compete against Oracle, as you night have known Microsoft also having ERPs, they have a MS eCRM and MS Dynamics that deals with Supply Chain I think.

All ERPs in HR have modules and you will have to find some areas to specialize like Recruit,Benefits Administration, Base Benefits,Payroll, Compensation, Performance Management etc

Hope this will be of some help.

Hey Folks,
If any one is planning to go for SAP ERP training than go through the recognized SAP partners and in India there are only two of them, Genovate and Seimens. The total fees comes to INR 308000/- inclusive of all taxes which includes the SAP certification from SAP Germany. Anyone interested in knowing more about the HR module can send me an email at and i will forward the details i got from Genovate Pune.

No as per my discussions with authorized SAP training partner. It is advised that you should have good domain knowledge. Cheers, Rohit
