What is happening?
Adobe recently announced the end of life of Flash will be targeted for the end of 2020. This means that after 2020, Adobe will stop releasing updates for Flash and web browsers will no longer support it.
More information about this announcement can be found here: https://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2017/07/adobe-flash-update.html.
Who is impacted?
The Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud (OTAC) utilizes Flash for Recruiting Center. Customers utilizing this Flash-based user experience will be impacted by the end-of-life of Adobe Flash. It is important to understand that this end-of-life announcement of Adobe Flash does not impact the Career Section, Onboarding (Transitions), Oracle Sourcing, or Scheduling Center.
What is Oracle doing?
This announcement by Adobe has been anticipated for some time. In preparation, Oracle has already begun working on a modern, non-Flash based alternative recruiter experience, which we call Fluid UX.
The Fluid UX will start rolling out with our 17.0 release, currently targeted for September 2017, and will continue to expand via OTAC’s follow on quarterly updates. Oracle is targeting to complete delivery of Fluid UX by the end of 2019, giving customers plenty of time to adopt Fluid UX before Adobe’s announced deadline.
What should customers do?
OTAC customers should start evaluating and adopting the new Fluid UX as it becomes available through the quarterly updates. Adopting these capabilities incrementally will minimize change management for system users. As noted, Oracle is targeting to complete delivery of Fluid UX by the end of 2019. Soon thereafter, customers can complete their adoption of Fluid UX, well in advance of Adobe’s stated end-of-life timeline of December 31, 2020.
