WALLDORF — SAP SE today announced that it has been positioned as a leader in Forrester Research Inc.’s “The Forrester Wave™: SaaS Human Resource Management Systems, Q4 2014.” The report evaluated cloud solutions from SuccessFactors, an SAP company, and recognized the company as a leading provider of cloud-based human resource management systems (HRMS) based on its current offering, strategy and market presence.
Two years ago, SuccessFactors set out to build an industry-leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) system for core HR, named SuccessFactors Employee Central. SAP believes its positioning in Forrester’s first SaaS Human Resource Management Systems report underscores the company’s commitment and focus on cloud solutions built for business outcomes. As the workforce becomes increasingly global, virtual and flexible, companies require employee-centric systems that are aligned to and executing on business strategies. With the flexibility and usability offered by the SuccessFactors HCM Suite — including market-leading talent management and core HR solutions — companies can simplify HR service delivery, engage and optimize their entire workforce and deliver business results, all with the agility and innovation of the cloud.
“Traditional HR software has focused on either talent management or system of record,” said Mike Ettling, president, HR Line of Business at SuccessFactors, an SAP company. “SuccessFactors Employee Central shows that’s no longer the case as we’ve moved to true systems of engagement, which allow for the alignment of people and strategy to business outcomes and put HR in a much more strategic position to the CEO. Customers are looking for flexibility and simplicity, along with mobile access, social collaboration and engagement. We’re thrilled to be recognized for our full comprehensive SaaS HRMS offering that combines engaging user experiences, a global system of record, deep talent management functionality and a multinational payroll engine.”
“We see SuccessFactors as a key partner in developing an effective global workforce,” said Paula Caya, corporate HR director, DENTSPLY International. “With the implementation of SuccessFactors Employee Central in early 2012, SuccessFactors demonstrated the ability to share our vision for DENTSPLY’s future in improving employee engagement and productivity. We look forward to working with SuccessFactors to meet our workforce management goals in the years to come.”
