SuccessFactors, an SAP company, a leader in human capital management (HCM) and one of the fastest growing cloud providers in the world offers its accelerated cloud solutions for four lines of business to manage people, money, customers and suppliers. These are planned to be offered in a consistent way and integrated into enterprise resource planning (ERP) business software.

SAP will also use SuccessFactors BizX suite internally as its new HCM system. The use of SuccessFactors’ cloud solution will simplify HR processes for managers and employees, help managers better align their daily management activities with the corporate strategy and provide the best tools for employees to take more control of their career development.

Adele Bernard, Marketing Director at SuccessFactors said, “Businesses have different strategies but a lot of them don’t actually execute their strategies. We see a huge opportunity for cloud adoption to aid in increasing productivity by filling execution gap for businesses’ strategy.”

She further explained that every company has an absolute need for high-performing workforce and HCM software aims find the right people, put their talent to best use, align employee goals with corporate goals, maximize the impact of training, and retain top performers.

With SAP HCM, you can develop and deploy talent more rapidly and flexibly. The solution supports and integrates all talent management processes – so you can attract, acquire, educate, and develop talent; identify and grow future leaders; and align and motivate talent with overall objectives.

Since SAP’s acquisition of SuccessFactors in February this year, they immediately joined forces to begin delivering on an accelerated cloud strategy. SAP is now investing more than 5,000 people dedicated to designing, building and delivering cloud solutions that enable people to love work again and perform at their best. The newly-formed cloud business unit, serving more than 17 million users, will be focused on four solution areas aimed at helping customers manage their most business-critical assets and relationships.

SAP plans to deliver its multitenant cloud solutions as a loosely-coupled suite of best-of-breed applications. The company plans to offer customers the choice and flexibility to adopt these applications at their own pace, as their business needs evolve.
