SAP SuccessFactors present accelerated unified product direction
INDUSTRY| Sept. 27, 2012, 10:56 a.m.
The leading German company SAP and SuccessFactors, a SAP owned company, unified their product offering for human capital management (HCM) solutions. The combined portfolio now provide end-to-end integrated solutions to help address some of the biggest challenges that most business leaders around the world are faced with including managing their talent to top performance, turning their strategies into actions and results.
HCM is gaining traction in the marketplace as companies realise that nurturing top talent and fostering a united community of employees is critical to being a best-run business.
SuccessFactors support an open approach to connecting with third-party solution providers. About fourteen percent of SuccessFactors customers currently run their systems side-by-side with SAP. In addition to providing enhanced value for joint customers, SAP and SuccessFactors accelerate the development of integration solutions with third-party solution providers. For SAP customers, the two companies intend to deliver integration packages between the two offerings:
- Cloud-based talent, core HR, recruiting, learning and social solutions, and workforce planning and analytics solutions from SuccessFactors;
- On-premise core HR from SAP
“We now have fantastic opportunities in combining SAP innovations with SuccessFactors’ expertise and assets in the cloud. We are already seeing amazing results by improving SuccessFactors Employee Central performance 1000x — from nine minutes to 200 milliseconds with SAP HANA, enabling HR executives to do real-time workforce analytics and planning,” comments Gerhard Stegmann Account Executive at SAP Africa. “Together with SuccessFactors, we are now able to offer our customers the most comprehensive, end-to-end HCM portfolio both on premise and in the cloud — from core HR and employee administration to talent management, strategic planning and workforce analytics.”
For more information on SAP’s and SuccessFactors overall cloud strategy, product road maps and go-to-market approaches beyond HCM will be announced at SAPHILA 2012.
