As discussed in March, here are some of the most interesting updates on the HCM roadmap based on various interactions with customers and partners.
And we are building on what we discussed couple of weeks ago, moving forward in two categories:
- Hybrid Deployment
- Leverage combination of cloud and on-premise HCM solutions
- Deploy market -leading talent capabilities from SuccessFactors in the cloud
- Leverage delivered integrations between SuccessFactors and SAP
- Leverage existing on-premise Core HR investments
- Full Cloud
- Acceleration of Employee Central to offer end-to-end cloud-based HCM
Most questions while discussing with customers and partners have been around integration at hybrid deployments in our installed base. Here we moved ahead with data and process integration supported by the respective integration toolset, but as well on user experience with unified access to all HCM processes.
We are working with co-innovation customers on the content for the respective integration packages, nicely wrapped with rapid deployment packages for fast consumption. More details during SAPphire and SuccessConnect…
Acceleration – as stated earlier we are accelerating the overall roadmap, especially for Employee central, full cloud.
We are leveraging the experts from SAP who have been working on HCM, on demand as well from business suite to accelerate the development significantly. We are very excited about the opportunities that open up and cannot wait to tell more in May. And the current customer momentum proves us right.
Further topics of interest have been around analytics, pre-packaged solutions, expertise for HCM in the market, competition, customer momentum, … Thanks for the feedback – the one I liked most: ” …you guys are moving fast…” indeed we are – cloud speed!
Hope to talk to most of you again during our next milestone events SAPphirehttp://www.sapandasug.com/ in Orlando #SAPPHIRENOW and on SuccessConnect #SuccessConnect in Sydney, San Francisco and London.
