Light and Simple – The Cloud Mantra

I’m glad Elvira addressed the topic of New Year Resolutions in her blog. Of course, to successfully keep up with these resolutions, one needs to consider possibilities which are “simple and light” – In other words, make choices that are easy to implement with faster outcomes and lasting results.

In the very same spirit, we at SAP want to “Run Simple“ by providing solutions to consume sophisticated technology (not the same ascomplicated technology!) , that help deal with business challenges – And in a way, that’s no different from how you would tackle your New Year Resolutions,  by keeping it “light and simple” .

The portfolio of SAP Best Practices and Rapid Deployment Solutions for SuccessFactors is the perfect combination of a “light and simple” starting point for businesses, to empower their workforce and streamline HR operations on the cloud.

SAP Best Practices contain preconfigured content and documentation enabling onboarding to the cloud with dramatically accelerated
time to value, at a reduced cost, for SuccessFactors users. They complement other SAP Best Practices for on premise and/or cloud solutions and are delivered in either a stand-alone manner or packaged into SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions (with the inclusion of supporting services). These packages offer both end to end business process deployment and integration to SAP systems as well.

Deployment of the Full HCM Cloud for SuccessFactors is supported by SAP Best Practices for Employee Central, which comes with pre-configured content for SuccessFactors Employee Central and helps to accelerate the implementation of core HR processes in the cloud.

Hybrid Cloud Deployment of the Talent Solutions from SuccessFactors is supported by SAP Best Practices for Recruiting and SAP Best Practices for Compensation.

  • SAP Best Practices for Recruiting helps to extend the hiring feature of Personnel Administration from SAP ERP Human Capital Management with SuccessFactors Recruiting Management in the cloud.
  • SAP Best Practices for Compensation enables to perform Integrated Compensation Planning on the SuccessFactors Talent Management Cloud, while leveraging employee, organizational and salary data from On-Premise SAP HCM and SAP ERP.

Deploying end to end HR business processes may not always be the most complex aspect of working with cloud solutions. In many cases, customers are primarily looking at integrating their SuccessFactors Cloud Solutions to their existing SAP footprint and to leverage their existing investment in SAP. Customers using Employee Central can now integrate with their  on premise SAP systems using the  SAP ERP HCM Integration to SuccessFactors RDS and  those using the SuccessFactors Talent Solutions can leverage the SuccessFactors Employee Central Integration to SAP ERP RDS to integrate with on premise SAP HCM systems.

SAP Best Practices is a perfect fit in the present day, complex world, where driving simplicity becomes the biggest challenge.  A practical approach of flexibility and modularity delivered through “pre-configured” content goes a long way in delivering innovation in bite-sized chunks. 

Explore our portfolio today to discover all the key ingredients to keep you light in your journey to get to the SuccessFactors Cloud!
