Partners With Bristlecone Labs to Deliver Free Software Toolkit Enabling Joint Customers to Share Information Between Two Systems
HRchitect featured SuccessFactors in our May 2008 release of The Suite Life of Integrated Talent Management and also includes them in our list of top Talent Management Systems vendors that businesses should consider.
SuccessFactors, the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, today announced that the SuccessFactors Performance and Talent Management suite passed all tests required to be SAP-Certified for Integration with SAP Applications. The SAP certification status validates successful, repeatable integration. Working with SuccessFactors’ partner, Bristlecone Labs, the companies have developed and delivered the SuccessFactors Connector Toolkit 2.0 for SAP, enabling customers to quickly pull master data from any SAP instance and share it with SuccessFactors. SuccessFactors’ customers can take advantage of this option to facilitate data integration between the two systems, and accelerate deployment and return on investment in their strategic talent management initiatives.
SuccessFactors already has a proven track record of integrating with SAP and dozens of traditional Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) for master data exchange. Customers have faced challenges in extracting common data such as job titles and contact information from large HRIS systems for use in their SuccessFactors’ instances, but in delivering the Connector Toolkit for SAP, SuccessFactors is making data integration faster and easier with an automated, certified approach.
The Connector Toolkit for SAP is available to SuccessFactors customers on the SuccessFactors Customer Community for free, and includes instructions for installation and use. Technical support and additional consulting are both available through Bristlecone Labs, a services provider in SAP custom integration and development and a trusted SAP Labs development partner.
SuccessFactors is pleased to provide the Connector Toolkit for SAP in order to continue a long-standing tradition of highly successful joint SucessFactors-SAP customers. Existing joint customers including highly recognizable and respected companies such as Kimberly Clark, New York Life Insurance, Baker Hughes, First Energy, and Citrix, will be able to take advantage of the Connector Toolkit for SAP immediately.
The SuccessFactors Performance and Talent Management Suite, which includes Performance Management, Goal Management, 360 Degree Reviews, Succession Management, Compensation Management, Learning and Development, Recruiting Management, Employee Profile, and Analytics and Reporting applications, creates a company-wide network of information related to employee performance, including skill-sets, interests, career aspirations, ability to relocate, experience, languages spoken and more. By providing deep, real-time, company-wide visibility into such critical performance data, companies are able to make better, more informed decisions about how to promote, recruit, compensate, reward and manage their entire employee base.
