SuccessFactors August 2014 Release Highlights

In the last three months we have been working on new impactful solutions, beautiful user interfaces as well as on continuous improvements across the SuccessFactors® HCM Suite, which are now available with the 1408 release.

Within our HCM Suite, you can now view and assess your workforce easily with our new org chart. This new org chart dynamically adjusts the layout based on the information presented.

This August we deliver innovative, new solutions for SuccessFactors Employee Central. We listened to our customers, who have employees with multiple jobs. With our new concurrent employment functionality in SuccessFactors Employee Central, you can now maintain several work assignments associated with one employee record.

With our Employee Central Service Center you can improve the efficiency and quality of HR services to help raise the level of employee satisfaction. Time-consuming follow up activities for open issues are now history.

In our Talent solutions we bring two new great features for Learning, which significantly improve content, collaboration, and learning delivery: QuickGuides and the programs feature. Employees can use their laptop or iPhone in order to easily create and share their own step-by-step guided instructions by using QuickGuides.

    • Hi Ani,

      Thanks for the interest! We are currently working on an integration roadmap to tightly integrate Fieldglass into Ariba, SuccessFactors and SAP ERP (incl. HCM). With regards to SuccessFactors Employee Central and the Talent Solutions our future aim is to bring visualization and HR process alignment across the internal and contingent labor. We plan to deliver the first touch points between the solutions in the coming releases.

      We will update you shortly on this!

      Best regards,


  • Thanks Beate for this blog. it cool to see new org chart and QuickGuides features in August’s release. Seems SuccessFactors Talent solutions will lead long years on market with such new functionalities.
