New York, NY, 2 October 2012— Elizabeth Arden, a global beauty products company with a range of prestigious fragrance, skincare and cosmetics brands, is live on Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM) in the Oracle Cloud. Deloitte* firms in the United States and the United Kingdom managed the deployment of Oracle Fusion HCM at Elizabeth Arden. This engagement strengthens Deloitte’s position as a leader in Oracle Fusion HCM, and reinforces its commitment to Oracle’s Fusion development efforts.
