This is my first in a series of posts where I want to recommend sessions to go to and people to meet at HR Insider 2013 in Amsterdam. Rather than write a generic guide, i decided to write multiple posts for audiences with different purposes. What is more valuable than getting the facts is getting to meet the people who create, market and influence the products you see. Meet them and follow them on Twitter. Many of them share information about their products on Twitter.

Your Profile

You use SAP HCM for Core HR and one or more SuccessFactors talent management applications. You are now looking for new innovations to bring to all employees in your company, while significantly saving money for your company and improving productivity for your company. You love using SAP ERP HCM for Core HR but your employees,particularly the ones born after 1980, are complaining that SAP’s user interface looks like it was built before they were born. You are looking for ways to address this problem without re-implementing everything that works fine for you. You want to keep the robust SAP software in place but make the software more social and make it available on mobile devices,even personal mobile devices of employees, where appropriate.


You also want to attract, engage and retain innovative and creative young people to your company. Your want the tool they use to apply for a job and complete the onboarding process to be intuitive, easy and even fun. If this sounds like your goal, these are the sessions you could attend and the people you should meet.


1. SuccessFactors Onboarding by Parvathy Sankar

Thursday, 13 June, 2013  |   9:00 – 10:15  |  D201


When you meet Parvathy ask her about the SuccessFactors Recruiting execution and SuccessFactors Onboarding solutions. Parvathy works out of the Walldorf office.


2. SAP Jam for Talent Management by Giovanna Enea

Thursday, 13 June, 2013 | 10:45 – 12:00 | Emerald Room

Giovanna works out of the Walldorf office.


3. SAP Fiori

Since SAP Fiori was announced only at Sapphire 2013, there are no sessions dedicated to SAP Fiori. However, my colleague Gertrud Beisel will be there at HR Insider. Gertrud works out of the Palo Alto office.


Meet her and ask her about SAP Fiori HR apps. SAP Fiori is a set of HTML5 applications for end users of SAP ERP HCM. There might be a demo of SAP Fiori apps in the demo pods. Look for them.


I am very excited about the possibilities that SAP Fiori creates for existing SAP HCM customers. Since Fiori apps can be consumed via desktop computers, tablets and smartphones, customers can take these apps to the entire employee population irrespective of their devices.


4. Social and Mobile Innovations from SAP and SuccessFactors by Prashanth Padmanabhan

Wednesday, 12 June, 2013 | 9:00 – 10:15 | E107  I work from the Palo Alto office.


In this session I will walk you through a story, told from the point of view of a new hire experiencing SAP and SuccessFactors social and mobile apps. My plan is to help you weave the multiple social and mobile innovations as a compelling experience for employees of your organizations.


If you meet me at SAP Insider ask me about how SAP is using SAP Jam to improve collaboration within SAP and SuccessFactors and with partners. I will be glad to show you the live SAP Jam group that make SAP and SuccessFactors HCM colleagues productive.
