Everything you need to know about Oracle Redwood Cloud User Experience

By uniting customer-inspired design philosophies with industry-leading technology solutions, Oracle Redwood helps companies reduce costs, foster efficiency, revitalize the customer journey, and evolve continuously toward the future.

Why is Oracle transitioning to Redwood?

Oracle’s mission is to help their customers use data in new ways, discover insights, and unlock endless possibilities for growth and innovation – and Redwood is simply the latest step in bringing that vision into reality.

In addition, Oracle also learned that prior HCM users were running into issues surrounding a disjointed user experience as they made their way from one application to the next.

To highlight their commitment to both innovation and the individual, Oracle conducted extensive customer research to gain a comprehensive view of user needs and pain points. By combining this research with proven design principles and best practices, Oracle was able to replace outdated interfaces and workflows with a more optimal design philosophy.  

And thus, Oracle Redwood was born.

When should users transition to Oracle Redwood?

While all Oracle Cloud HCM customers are required to transition to Redwood by early 2025, Oracle encourages companies to make the shift as soon as possible. To ensure a pain-free adoption, Oracle has rolled out a multi-phased approach.
