Prem Potta. The HCM Mastermind at CriticalRiver

About a decade ago, an idealistic young man walked a park bench in Chicago. He stopped to pick up a flyer. A life altering moment was born accompanied by some important lessons.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts.... We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes." - by Charles R. Swindoll

This is the philosophy that Prem applies to his life, every single day.

Principled. Competitive. Result-Oriented.

The inhouse HCM guru, Prem Potta is a true delight to talk to and work with. Since he keeps himself constantly updated on the happenings at the World of Oracle, his contribution to our HCM projects are invaluable. The HCM execution team at CriticalRiver all work closely with him at various projects. This Master of Computer Applications graduate from India is now a happy resident at the Bay Area. When he is not working away on his Mac, one can find him hiking the trails across the country. And ardent outdoorsman, Prem and his family love hiking and kayaking.

Prem’s constant source of inspiration is his better half – his lovely wife. He proudly says that she has always been motivating, helping him in strengthening his faith, tolerance, and willpower to keep moving on in tough times.

At CriticalRiver, Prem manages overall business operations to enhance customer satisfaction and operational efficiency by analysing HCM business in Oracle HCM Products for various clients across the globe. He has led multiple global On-Premise & Cloud implementations on Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud and PeopleSoft. A true veteran with over 15 full lifecycle projects in diverse sectors, Prem is adept at client relationship building and efficiently building quality customer management.

He is always seen telling his juniors:

  • No job is small, no job is big... Never stop learning.
  • Don't just focus on the smaller details, look at the big picture.
  • Think Big... You are, what you think you are.
