SAP SuccessFactors solutions are cloud-based HCM software applications that support core HR and payroll, talent management, HR analytics and workforce planning, and employee experience management. The suite – now called SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite – provides individualised experiences that keep employees happy, productive, and engaged. Launched in 2001 and part of the SAP family since 2012, SAP SuccessFactors solutions are used by over 218+ million users in more than 200 countries and territories around the world.
SAP HR was a key module in the SAP ERP application that provided comprehensive support for HCM. Now, SAP HR has evolved into SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite – a cloud-based suite of HR solutions that put employees first. These solutions include a powerful HR information system as well as tools for employee experience management, onboarding, learning, performance management, succession and development, people analytics, and much more.
SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite includes cloud HCM solutions in four key areas:
- Employee experience management – including a wide range of employee surveys, feedback analysis, and guided action
- Core HR and payroll – including a powerful HR information system, payroll software, self-service HR, time and attendance, and more
- Talent management – including solutions for recruiting, onboarding, learning, performance management, compensation, and more
- HR analytics and workforce planning – including AI-powered people analytics, scenario modelling, what-if analysis, and strategic workforce planning
HXM – or human experience management – is the next generation of human capital management (HCM) software. HXM builds on the best of HCM to help organisations deliver better business results by putting people at the heart of everything they do. SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite is designed around employees – how they work, what they need, and what motivates them.
