SAP and SuccessFactors Introduce Next Generation of Intelligent HCM Software
Managing changes to employee data can be costly and consume excess company resources each year. HR processes often include disparate transactions that cross multiple organizational boundaries, leading to wasted time managing the complexity and correcting errors. Most human capital management (HCM) software can’t handle this end-to-end view, forcing end users to guess what they need to do or rely on costly shared services. HR and employees need software that can quickly and easily guide them through the necessary steps when dealing with an employee change. SuccessFactors, a leader in cloud-based human resources software and an SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) company, introduced new capabilities in the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite that transform the entire concept of HR service delivery, moving from series of individual and isolated self-services into end-to-end intelligent services that can easily cross software modules and integrate processes.  Intelligent services are designed to connect – and even predict – the impending transactions resulting from a change and automatically adjust them for the user, helping improve the employee experience and reduce reliance on – and cost of – shared services. This announcement was made at SuccessConnect 2015, being held August 10–12 in Las Vegas.
