Lifting the Veil on Digital Transformation: This Week in ASUG’s HR Community


No, not that kind of transformation. Digital transformation doesn’t happen overnight and isn’t quite as flashy as Hasbro’s most famous toys may make it seem. Especially in the world of HR, the shift towards digitization and the cloud can be especially daunting. Luckily, ASUG’s HR community has the knowledge and resources that can save you from the IT junkyard and make you the Optimus Prime of your business.

Here are some of the highlights from the week ending 2/19/2016

Secrets of a Digitally Transformed Workplace: Do you go from booking your next vacation all on your phone back to the age of mullets and shoulder pads the second you enter the office? Shouldn’t HR be evolving as quickly as our own methods of productivity? ASUG’s Sherryanne Meyer urges HR to be “more than administrators” in her blog post that blows the lid off of Digital Transformation. Supplemented by this webcast from the President of SAP SuccessFactors, Mike Ettling, this is content you can’t miss.

SAP SuccessFactors Q1 2016 Business Update/Release Highlights: Although technology is more of a marathon than a sprint, if you don’t keep up you’ll be left in the dust. Pick up your speed by hearing the latest Q1 updates and release highlights for SAP SuccessFactors. David Ludlow, Global VP of SAP HR and SuccessFactors, sets the pace in this informative webcast.

SuccessFactors HCM Suite Road Map: Suite-Wide Topics: Although we are extremely spoiled by our smartphones and Google Maps, sometimes a good old Road Map is the way to go. ASUG and SAP have that covered. In this webinar, SAP project managers present product road maps for Intelligent Services, Mobile, Admin, Talent Foundation, ERP/HCM Integration, Cloud to Cloud Integrations, and Extensibility.

SuccessFactors Strategic HR: Did “SuccessFactors HCM Suite Road Map” not satisfy your thirst for HR knowledge? Once again the best and brightest of SAP project managers share our road maps. Topic in this webinar include Recruiting, Onboarding, Learning, Performance & Goals, Compensation, and Succession & Development.

HR Town Hall – Focus on Services & Support in the Cloud: Did you miss the chance to voice your opinion in our HR Town Hall? Luckily, there was no shortage of feedback between our SuccessFactors users and SIG leaders. Jamie Bridwell from SAP Successfactors joined us for the discussion.

Discussion – Retro-calc. changes past payroll withholding tax: While you may be quickly preparing for the dreaded Tax Day, your technology might not share the same sense of urgency – a scary thought. The HR community has been buzzing with tax talk. What happens when you need to apply new tax rates to old payments? The ASUG HR community collaborates to find out.

Upcoming – Practical Analytics for Business Users: Imagine this – you need a visualization comparing turnover for the past 10 years. You have the numbers, but to make it presentable and to forecast your expectations for 2017 you need some visuals. So, you put in a ticket, request, email, etc. and wait. And wait. And wait. Wouldn’t it be nice to cut the middleman and learn how to use data analytics? Or how to acutely explain your needs to cut down on files named “Final Version” and “Final VersionV2” and “Final Final Version.” This hands-on workshop is for us business users who don’t have the time for data bottleneck. Plus… registration is buy one get one ½ off!
