In the six years since it acquired SuccessFactors, SAP has made the SaaS human capital management platform its prime HR offering. With that in mind, SAP also pushes SuccessFactors integrations with other SAP products, such as the on-premises SAP HCM suite, certain financial applications and key cloud services, including Concur and Fieldglass.
SuccessFactors comprises HR capabilities for recruiting, onboarding, time and attendance, compensation management, learning and development, performance management, workforce planning and people analytics. The hub of SuccessFactors is Employee Central, a suite of core HR applications built on a data repository of employee records. Employee Central also offers employee self-service functions for workers to manage their benefits and other HR-related tasks.
SuccessFactors integrations also include tie-ins with SAP S/4HANA, as S/4HANA is designed to work with Employee Central in the cloud. Although SAP has announced that on-premises support for SAP HCM will continue until 2030, the company's longer-term plans are to move HR customers to SuccessFactors.
This guide takes you through SuccessFactors implementation advice, ideas about SuccessFactors integrations, expert tips on using Employee Central and other functions, and analysis on where SuccessFactors stands in the HCM market.
