A new report from IDC has recognized SAP as a leader in social technology in talent management. The report, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Social Technologies in Integrated Talent Management 2015 Vendor Assessment, by Lisa Rowan, #255616, calls out the social capabilities of SAP Jam, which enables collaboration across the full portfolio of SuccessFactors and SAP solutions as well as third-party solutions.
The report was based in part on a survey of over 500 HR executives who were asked to rate the social capabilities of their talent management vendor. This report follows another IDC report from last fall, The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Social Networks 2014 Vendor Assessment, doc #252332, November 2014, which named SAP Jam a category leader.
SAP Jam incorporates collaboration seamlessly into business-critical processes across the company like learning, performance management, and onboarding to improve real business metrics in these areas. By enabling collaboration at every level of business, companies can increase employee engagement and drive better results.
“In addition to covering all the talent functions,” the report states, “SAP Jam also offers work patterns that are predefined social processes based on best practices, which enable teams to get up and get running quickly while taking advantage of social collaboration to improve their work and more quickly meet their KPIs.”
Work patterns are a value proposition unique to SAP Jam that has helped it grow to more than 17.5 million subscribers.
The IDC MarketScape reports assess vendors’ social technology, recruiting, learning management, performance management and compensation management solutions through the IDC MarketScape model.
