Aloha! We just recently released an updated version of the RDS “rapid data migration to Cloud Solutions from SAP” which now includes content to migrate data to Benefits and Learning Management System (LMS).


SuccessFactors Employee Central Global Benefits is an efficient benefits solution that delivers control for administrators, efficiency for employees, and supports global benefits event.


SuccessFactors LMS can be an application that will bring success of trying to keep employees up to date on everything, which is mission critical for most organizations and immediate savings in areas such as:


  • Reduced costs for travel and training facilities by moving training on-line
  • Lower instructor fees and salaries and costs to produce, ship, store and update materials
  • Reduced time away from the job
  • Reduced record-keeping costs (SuccessFactors provides instant audit histories for individuals or groups)
  • Improved training efficiencies (SuccessFactors lets you customize content for student needs to achieve better retention and acceptance and faster training completion)
  • Increased scheduling and enrollment efficiencies (SuccessFactors automatically detects and resolves scheduling conflicts, tracks costs and allocates resources as they are needed.
  • Elimination of multiple systems, resulting in lower costs and better control over all aspects of the training experience through one standard, centralized access point.


Here’s a high-level diagram of how the data flows in the LMS migration solution:

    Hi Micheal – Thanks for this information.  From the details provided in the links, this solution requires that the customer organization extract their data from their LMS, whether it be SAP’s Learning Solution or another, such as Cornerstone, and then translates it based on their knowledge of SuccessFactors connector requirements leveraging BI and SAP Data Services.  Is this a correct summary?  Thanks so much!

      Hi Sharon,

      Yes this is correct.

      You can also use Data Services directly connecting from the source if there’s a connection available.

      We also provide templates to assist with the translation from source to SuccessFactors LMS.

      Biggest advantages of using Data Services is the data quality and cleansing functionality making sure that whatever data that you’re moving into the new system is not dirty or inconsistent.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

      Mike
