Prelude

SAP_Jarret #SAPChat -> Before we get started our thoughts & prayers go out to everyone affected by #Sandy -12:00 PM Oct 30th, 2012

successfactors Okay, we’re going to get started, welcome to the#HCM chat! I’m @kiraswain and I’ll be hosting on behalf of@SuccessFactors #sapchat -12:02 PM Oct 30th, 2012

andupat Looking forward to great exchange of ideas, thoughts….#SAPChat -12:03 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 1

vinaynaithani my first question. do you think SFSF is living up to its hype after the acquisition? #SAPChat -12:00 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @vinaynaithani Great question & I think there is both good & bad. The good is the interest & revenue growth have been very strong #SAPChat -12:05 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @vinaynaithani Q3 results were very strong for cloud and SAP/SF are delivering in the integration. That’s what we focus on #SAPChat -12:05 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAP_Jarret SAP announced in the last quarter #SFSF billings increased by 92% YoY. Do you know how much in $? #SAPChat -12:06 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @vinaynaithani issue for me is that focus is mainly on integration, whereas many customers are already more integrated than proposed #SAPChat -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAPgirl99 integration will be key for further adoption. Target customer not being existing base #SAPChat -12:09 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAPgirl99 Robert Moeller recently tried to address this with a blog and updates on SCN #SAPChat -12:17 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 2

BarinBarindesai Question from customer…. What happens to on premise customer in terms of Talent management? #SAPChat -12:02 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @BarinBarindesai On-premise Talent Management is not changing. SAP are still supporting & investing so your client shouldn’t worry #SAPChat -12:06 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @BarinBarindesai I note you make the distinction TM/Core. SAP is committed to investing heavily in core HR on-premise going forward #SAPChat -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @lukemarson Indeed. Our investment focus is on cloud talent mgmt as go-forward solution. OnPrem talent will see cont’ enhancements #SAPChat -12:11 PM Oct 30th, 2012

BarinBarindesai @lukemarson Thank you. I understand that on premise investment on TM continues. SAP would invest in TM on premise. #SAPChat -12:12 PM Oct 30th, 2012

BarinBarindesai What should be the strategy for an on premise customer to move to successfactors? any guidelines that can be share with customer. #SAPChat -12:14 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @SAPgirl99 SAP are still investing in Talent Management & their partner #Nakisa are innovating on their on-premise portfolio #SAPChat -12:17 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @lukemarson but Nakisa is looking increasingly like an orphaned product #SAPChat -12:19 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @SAPgirl99 How so? This is not what I’ve seen in market or heard from SAP Solution Management #SAPChat -12:20 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @lukemarson opinion of customers reluctant to add infrastructure for something they are unsure will last #SAPChat-12:21 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAPgirl99 http://t.co/a7CHs6ax #SAPChat -12:22 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @lukemarson @sapgirl99 correct, the nakisa orgchart is even embedded in some of the new UI renovated screens #SAPChat -12:22 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 3
occean5 Hi guys. Question. Where are we with the Employee Central and SAP Cloud Payroll integration? #SAPChat -12:03 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @occean5 Great Question. Is it the intention to give EC the same depth and scope so that it can cover payroll ?#SAPChat -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @occean5 I think the #SAP Cloud Payroll is still a work in progress. By mid next yr should be a lot more solid http://t.co/1TvYgzvw #SAPChat -12:10 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @lucbossaert The current plan is to put the #SAP OnPrem Payroll in the “cloud” & use the HR Renewal for missing payroll data in EC #SAPChat -12:12 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @SAP_Jarret Thanks. What is the timeline for this?#SAPChat -12:14 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @lucbossaert It is already happening…check out this article & I plan to update soon http://t.co/Q9jgX6id #cloudpayroll#SAPchat -12:22 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 4

holgermu Question for #SAPChat: What were the most used #integration techniques used BEFORE the #SAP acquisition of #SFSF? -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @holgermu I guess dell’s BOOMI #SAPChat -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @holgermu #SAPChat common integration was by CVS file, but without the data mapping and guidance. They are live and working today #SAPChat -12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @holgermu For integrating..? SAP’s #HCM modules are integrated, but SAP PI is the common technology to integrate external systems #SAPChat -12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012


holgermu @chiarabersano #SAPChat thanks – and #Batch Input /#RFCs on the SAP side? -12:09 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @holgermu Correct. It all depends what you are integrating. #SAPChat -12:10 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu #SAPChat. Despite #SFSF customers having many integration options prior SAP (web svc, csv, boomie) the majority decided for CSV -12:15 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu @SAP_TALENT Interesting and thanks. I guess there will be significant ‘re-skilling’ needed to move the new (planned) interfaces. #SAPChat -12:17 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 5

soniharshal Question #SAPChat : If a customer is already on on-premise solution, does it make sense for them to consider cloud based solutions? -12:07 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @soniharshal Some customers have a deliberate all-cloud strategy. Other will build on their on-premise core to deliver cloud talent #SAPChat -12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @soniharshal Only if they are already looking for more functionality or upgrade. They’d need to look at TCO #SAPChat-12:09 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @soniharshal It depends on what functionality they want & whether it is offered only in on-premise or Cloud. Also culture of org #SAPChat -12:11 PM Oct 30th, 2012


SAP_Jarret @soniharshal I think it is hard to make a rip & replace Biz case for a #SAP HCM to go fully to #SuccessFactors EE Central #SAPChat -12:13 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 6

harish_tk Have there been any big name pilot customers for #SAP #SFSF that you can share? #SAPChat -12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @harish_tk I know SAP are working on some pilot customers, but I can’t give away names. There are some multinationals implementing #SAPChat -12:10 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 7

papri_rc Does Employee Central Payroll based on SAP? #SAPChat-12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @papri_rc yes, the payroll engine is SAP – as is Workday’s in most instances  #SAPChat -12:09 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @SAP_Jarret but we’ve been saying “limited options right now, with more to come” for nearly 6 months now  #SAPChat-12:29 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @sapgirl99 I hear you & wish it was faster as well. The good news is it will all come together in next 6 months #SAPchat-12:31 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 8

MarvelAditi I have recently been trained in PM & GM. why dont i see any openings for “just certified” candidates like us ? #SapChat#sapchat -12:08 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @MarvelAditi Certification doesn’t provide the business process experience that is needed to deliver SAP projects #SAPChat -12:09 PM Oct 30th, 2012

MarvelAditi @lukemarson agreed but we need to get started somewhere. #SapChat -12:10 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @MarvelAditi You need to get experience. The best way is to work at an organization that uses #SAP & become a power user #SAPChat -12:14 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @marveladiti Unfortunately it’s very challenging to get a break with only #SAP certification. Would recommendhttp://t.co/4Uqe2isT #SAPchat -12:18 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 9

uneekconstr8nt it was announced earlier this year that there won’t be an R4…still true? Will SAP keep R/3 but turn to EC, or is R/4 coming? #SAPChat -12:11 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @uneekconstr8nt For SAP HCM, releases will be quaterly add-ons for the forseeable future(UX Renovation and HCM on HANA) #SAPChat -12:13 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu @uneekconstr8nt There will never, never be something after R/3 – ECC versions, new name…. no R/3 or R/11 (remember the90ies)…#SAPChat -12:13 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @uneekconstr8nt SAP R/3 is more than HCM, and different delivery models will co-exist for a long time #SAPChat-12:14 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @uneekconstr8nt I sure hope a R/4 is coming as many areas are due to be refreshed but havent heard anything definitive #SAPchat -12:19 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @uneekconstr8nt For SAP HCM, releases will be quaterly add-ons for the forseeable future(UX Renovation and HCM on HANA) #SAPChat -12:13 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 10

GilSAPcareers #SAPChat career question – Should I go after HCM or SF course offerings for someone wanting to get into SAP HCM Consulting -12:11 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @GilSAPcareers Experience is more important than certification, although to implement #SuccessFactors you need to be certified. #SAPChat -12:12 PM Oct 30th, 2012

harish_tk @lukemarson – How about folks like us with fair amount of SAP experience? Can we cope ? Certification a must? #SAPChat-12:14 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @gilsapcareers Great question & my gut says #SuccessFactors. Some additional info that might be helpfulhttp://t.co/jegSscW5 #SAPchat -12:20 PM Oct 30th, 2012

GilSAPcareers @lukemarson Thanks Luke for the info #SAPChat-12:21 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 11

lucbossaert Question: if I want to combine on-premise and SFSF data in my reports, what is the best solution I would be looking at? #SAPChat -12:12 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @lucbossaert #SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics can connect to multiple systems so that might be a good solution #SAPChat -12:13 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 12

HansLoekkegaard #How would you advice a #SAP customer, new to the Cloud, on it’s selection of IS-partner(s)? Would you need a SAP and SF partner? #sapchat -12:17 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @HansLoekkegaard I think both #SAP &#SuccessFactors partners are needed. SF must be involved & SAP experience is essential #SAPChat -12:19 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @HansLoekkegaard Many long-term SAP (HCM) partners are already or ramp up as #SFSF partners. Your regional contacts will know them #SAPChat -12:31 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 13

papri_rc How should the three be compared in short- SAP Payroll, Employee Central, Workday, other than only two are on cloud #SAPChat -12:18 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @papri_rc impossible to compare out of the box! different tools, like comparing oranges and shoes…. #SAPChat-12:21 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @papri_rc #Workday is multi-tenant cloud while the #SAP Payroll cloud solution is hosted but comparison would take more than 140 #SAPchat -12:29 PM Oct 30th, 2012

MartijnLinssen Why SAP will be single-tenant http://t.co/UE6er9CZ> RT @SAP_Jarret: #SAP Payroll cloud solution is hosted #SAPchat-12:43 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 14

vinaynaithani Is the price tag of over $5 billion for Sybase the reason why mobile integration is so costly for SAP customers? #SAPChat

watchthewave @vinaynaithani I would respectfully challenge the fact that SAP mobile apps/infrastructure are overpriced, but open to discussion #SAPChat -12:20 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @watchthewave single user subscription for workflow approval costs $38. #SAPChat -12:23 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @watchthewave sap_jarret rightly tweeted today that the cost of the approval workflow for a org with 5K managers will run into mils #SAPChat -12:24 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @watchthewave i agree the apps are free but there is cost involved in enabling it. #SAPChat -12:28 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @vinaynaithani The #SAP HCM mobile apps are NOT free.. see example http://t.co/EAaLakQx +Infastructure+gateway#SAPchat -12:34 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAP_Jarret this is the point @watchthewave is making about comparing apples…. . The app as such on the store is free #SAPChat -12:38 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 15

soniharshal Question #SAPChat : With #SAP pushing cloud solutions, will all the customer need to migrate to Cloud solution? What is the timeline? -12:20 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @soniharshal No, #SAP are not pushing customers to cloud & on-premise is under maintenance until AT LEAST 2020 & probably much more #SAPChat -12:22 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 16

KenBowers_SAP @soniharshal So for someone who is focused in the Core HR, what is the best way to get trained in #SuccessFactors #SAPChat #sapchat -12:28 PM Oct 30th, 2012

successfactors @KenBowers_SAP We have training available through SuccessAcademy. Take a look at the calendar: http://t.co/k9iMbIpx #sapchat -12:31 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 17

occean5 @dmitrikrakovsky Can you share with us the Employee Central roadmap for the next 2 to 4 releases? #SAPChat -12:28 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @occean5 EC roadmap will focus on Global Capabilities, Modern Organization and Integration. #SAPChat -12:34 PM Oct 30th, 2012

successfactors @occean5 Here’s info on the latest EC release: http://t.co/R8tq5uiL. Please contact a #successfactors rep for more info on roadmap #sapchat -12:36 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 18

@harish_tk Interesting as all this is, I am clearly unused to this format,hope all this is available for a leisurely perusal at a later stage. #SAPChat -12:27 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @harish_tk #SAP & #SuccessFactors will provide a full transcript after the event for review #SAPchat -12:30 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 19

ChiaraBersano @SAP_Jarret @jthomas_44 #sap #successfactors it is all about choice and options. #SAPChat -12:28 PM Oct 30th, 2012

jthomas_44 Great info. Thx. @SAP_Jarret: The truth is ltd options RIGHT now #SAP & #SuccessFactors but soon more http://t.co/8m9Zz7mK #sapchat -12:30 PM Oct 30th, 2012

jthomas_44 Yes, but what is recommended? RT @ChiaraBersano:@SAP_Jarret @jthomas_44 #sap #successfactors it is all about choice and options. #sapchat -12:35 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @jthomas_44 Recommendation would depend of specific portfolio, strategy and landscape #SAPChat -12:36 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @jthomas_44 SAP’s “go forward” solution for Talent Mgmt is #SuccessFactors. However, customer’s need to make choices based on needs #SAPChat -12:36 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @jthomas_44 I think a customer by customer eval is need but obviously sales will “recommend” where there is the most incentive 🙂 #SAPchat -12:37 PM Oct 30th, 2012

jthomas_44 @SAP_Jarret Well said! Appreciate your perspective #sapchat -12:39 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 20

teradots SAP has diverse SaaS platforms. Consolidation plans? Will SSFF platform be used beyond Talent Mg? #SAPchat -12:34 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @teradots on SaaS platform see our announcement on SAP HANA cloud from TechEd two weeks back #SAPChathttp://t.co/Nmn1k92A -12:42 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Interlude

SAP_Jarret If you have #SAP or Time Mgt questions be sure to ask as we have SAP Expert @mgillet enjoying the #SAPchat right now.-12:35 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet SAP HCM Followers for the next hour or so, follow #sapchat& join the conversation with great peers ! http://t.co/SUDtBymy#ENSW -12:35 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 21

lucbossaert Interesting comment from Snabe : “No one is profitable in the cloud today”. Hype or reality? Thoughts ? #SAPChat -12:35 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @lucbossaert It looks like #SAP will need to break the mould – as they have done before (such as through the global downturn) #SAPChat -12:37 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @lucbossaert From a traditional P&L standpoint that is correct but keep in mind Amazon wasnt profitable this Q either 🙂 #SAPChat -12:38 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @lukemarson Agree. It’s a huge commitment from SAP as they expect Cloud to be profitable only in 2015. Kudos for them. #SAPChat -12:39 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu @lucbossaert @lukemarson MyPOV: Can’t set date – competitive pressure and growth in 2015 will dictate #SaaS vendor profitability. #SAPChat -12:43 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @holgermu Cloud : bns $ of acquisitions + 3 years to profitability. On-premise is not dead yet #SAPChat -12:51 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @lucbossaert Great point on #SAP HCM OnPremise is not dead & a good article on the topic http://t.co/b7KCATPg by@Robert_SAP #SAPchat -12:55 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu @lucbossaert Fully agree – will be a long till dead. And in certain scenarios cheaper and better than #SaaS. Dirty Secret.#SAPChat -12:57 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 22

vinaynaithani my earlier question on SFSF revenues for last quarter ( increase of 92%) seems to have got lost or ignored. anyone know how much ? #SAPChat -12:36 PM Oct 30th, 2012

successfactors @vinaynaithani We are no longer publicly listed we’ve stopped breaking out rev. We are part of Cloud Rev: http://t.co/0jsEt70b #sapchat -12:40 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 23

SAPgirl99 Question – are there any metrics on the market regarding TCO of each solution? Cloud v OnPremise (seen for Workday but not SAP/SF) #SAPChat -12:36 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @SAPgirl99 No comprehensive study but a good thing to look into. #SAPChat -12:40 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 24

SAPgirl99 @mgillet I know the PY engine for SF is SAP, same for time? #SAPChat -12:37 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @SAPgirl99 That is an excellent question. Does @successfactors supports time processes ? #sapchat -12:44PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @sapgirl99 At this time #SuccessFactors only offers absence mgt & has a 3rd party party for time management. Hope it get on roadmap #SAPchat -12:43 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAPgirl99 @SAP_Jarret cc @mgillet Can you say what the 3rd party product is for Time? Restricted to just 3rd party if using PY in cloud? #SAPChat -12:46 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 25

4lexisMartin Is SF on HANA (cloud based still) planned? #SAPChat-12:37 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @4lexisMartin I understand that #SuccessFactors is still planned to be on #HANA, particularly Workforce Analytics #SAPChat -12:38 PM Oct 30th, 2012

4lexisMartin @lukemarson Thanks. Will this be cost-free for SF customers to benefits from HANA on the cloud when it will happen? #sapchat -12:39 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @4lexismartin #SuccessFactors has Workforce Analytic on the road map & heard the whole suite sometime next yr #SAPChat -12:40 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @4lexisMartin I understand so, since a multi-tenancy platform can’t be split to HANA/not HANA #SAPChat -12:41 PM Oct 30th, 2012

watchthewave @lukemarson @4lexisMartin Workforce Analytics on HANA planned for 2013 #SAPChat -12:41 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 26

vinaynaithani @sap_jarret @watchthewave I’m however interested in kn’wing how the cost mobile integration stacks up against SFSF and workday #SAPChat -12:39 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @vinaynaithani Since for #SAP HCM it requires a very large cost & nothing for #Workday & #SuccessFactors not much of a comparison #SAPchat -12:41 PM Oct 30th, 2012

holgermu @SAP_Jarret @vinaynaithani #Workday claims it’s ‘free’ (license wise). Operating cost varies on devices and usage…#SAPChat -12:45 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani @SAP_Jarret interested in @watchthewave ‘s take on this #SAPChat -12:42 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 27

harish_tk Time Evaluation on the Cloud? Anything new there? #SAPChat -12:40 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @soniharshal @harish_tk Time evaluation with #SuccessFactors is an area I would like to see them focus on in 2013 #SAPChat -12:47 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 28

4lexisMartin Is it true that “user experience integration” is no longer part of SF/SAP HCM with HR renewal roadmap for 2013?#sapchat -12:44 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @4lexisMartin We delivered and will continue. UX integration is a broad topic. Starts w/ SSO, MSS integration, which is there today #SAPChat -12:48 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 29

soniharshal Will the Payroll in Cloud be offered for all the countries that SAP support or will it be rolled out in phases? #SAPChat -12:45 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @soniharshal have been told that #SAP plan is offer their Cloud Payroll in the all countries that SAP Payroll currently supports #SAPChat -12:46 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 30

mgillet #sapchat Could SAP & @successfactors share a simple roadmap for their functionalities AS IS & TO BE, just plain (cont) http://t.co/zrPND5IN -12:45 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @mgillet yes for Absence Management. as for real time evaluation there is a partner supporting the specifics need.#SAPChat -12:47 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @ChiaraBersano A partner ? #sapchat It’s not native ? -12:47 PM Oct 30th, 2012

occean5 @mgillet I second that. We need a simple functionalities roadmap to properly inform our customers #SAPChat -12:48 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 31

vinaynaithani Are there any case studies, examples of SFSF implementation at large multinationals ( global) #SAPChat -12:45 PM Oct 30th, 2012

vinaynaithani I believe #workday‘s largest customer has approx 45K employees. How about #SFSF? #SAPChat -12:46 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @vinaynaithani a retail company with 2M employees #SAPChat -12:50 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @vinaynaithani correct, full footprint of talent, performance and succession. #SAPChat -12:51 PM Oct 30th, 2012

ChiaraBersano @vinaynaithani many, even before acquisition – Nestle, Siemens… too many for 140 characters. #SAPChat -12:48 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_TALENT @vinaynaithani I love to share to illustrate platform scalability. Think 2M employees in the peak season of year-end reviews… #SAPChat -12:54 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 32

jamesfoxca Appreciate the opportunity to join the conversation as a user… #SAPChat -12:47 PM Oct 30th, 2012

jamesfoxca …Does HCM have capacity to relate unstructured data (e.g. jobdescription.pdf) to structured data in OM (i.e. object type C)? #SAPChat -12:47 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @jamesfoxca SAP on-premise can do this & TREX can also search through both structured and unstructured data #SAPChat -12:50 PM Oct 30th, 2012

jamesfoxca @lukemarson Thanks, Luke! #SAPChat -12:51 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 33

mgillet What would you recommend to peers asking ‘Which skills do I develop next in my SAP HCM careers ?’ #sapchat -12:51 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @mgillet They need to learn business processes in chosen area. Talent Management is a growing area in #HCM & more skills needed #SAPChat -12:53 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @lukemarson @SAPCommNet Thank you Luke. We shall identify the champions & challenge their integration into the @sapmentors Wolfpack #sapchat -12:53 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @mgillet my take on needed HCM skills : business and analytical skills #SAPChat -12:54 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @lukemarson as SAP class offering is rather ‘limited’, which types or learning do you have mind to achieve that goal ?#sapchat -12:54 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @lucbossaert It remains ‘usual skills’ as for SAP HCM. But we are lacking the technical expertise to optimize advices IMHO#sapchat -12:55 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @mgillet #SuccessFactors use virtual e-learning & #Nakisa are also using this as part of their training approach #SAPChat -12:55 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @lukemarson Will deployment through JAM be in the pipeline or already available ? #sapchat -12:56 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @mgillet @lucbossaert True, but to understand how to apply technical skills the business skills are needed. #SAPChat-12:56 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lukemarson @mgillet Not too sure on that one  #sapchat -12:59 PM Oct 30th, 2012

lucbossaert @mgillet knowing how businesses are run and produce analytics that support business outcomes. Then translate this in technology #SAPChat -1:00 PM Oct 30th, 2012

Question 36

mgillet Last one for @sap_jarret #sapchat Would we need to challenge more SAP re Workday proactiveness to gain customers with gr8 functionalities? -1:00 PM Oct 30th, 2012

SAP_Jarret @mgillet I think keeping an eye on strong competitors & challenging the #SAP HCM & #SuccessFactors teams is always a good idea 🙂 #SAPchat -1:03 PM Oct 30th, 2012

mgillet @SAP_Jarret I’ll second the motion. Healthy competition is always in favor to customers & end users. #sapchat -1:03 PM Oct 30th, 2012
