Microsoft has chosen the full SAP® SuccessFactors® HCM Suite, including SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, for its 114,000 full-time employees.
Microsoft selected the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite for its global capabilities, flexibility and extensibility, and open platform strategy. Microsoft expects not only to reduce costs and drive greater operational efficiency but also to deliver an enhanced employee experience consistent with its mobile-first, cloud-first philosophy that attracts and retains talent, fosters employee engagement and drives improved business outcomes.
Microsoft is the latest addition to a group of global organizations that have selected SAP SuccessFactors human capital management (HCM) solutions to run human resources (HR) in the cloud. As more companies are transforming HR to meet the demands of the digital economy, they are embracing market-leadingSAP SuccessFactors solutions to help standardize, simplify and optimize HR processes, and to help increase employee engagement and accelerate innovation through cloud-based HCM.
More than 1,350 leading companies, including Microsoft and Ernst & Young, have selected SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, an innovative core HR system that goes beyond automation to help businesses manage global workforces more efficiently in the cloud.
“HR today has become overly complex, especially for large global enterprises contending with hundreds of legal and regulatory jurisdictions,” said Mike Ettling, president of SAP SuccessFactors. “Microsoft recognizes that transformation requires simplifying that environment, but just as importantly, as a global technology innovator, it also realizes the importance of providing its people with cloud-based solutions that are cool and easy to use. We’re proud to partner in supporting Microsoft’s continuing journey.”
Market-leading, cloud-based SAP SuccessFactors solutions provide a consumer-oriented user experience including modern user interface design and embedded collaboration capabilities, delivered with device of choice – all which will enable Microsoft to drive user adoption, engagement and employee collaboration. With the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, Microsoft will be equipped to improve employee engagement and realize the business benefits and ROI of its HR technology investment.
This announcement is a continuation of a longstanding partnership between SAP and Microsoft, including the recent news that SAP has selected Microsoft Azure as a preferred public cloud service for SAP SuccessFactors solutions.
“As we accelerate digital transformation at Microsoft and define the future of the industry, it is important that we have world-class platforms to develop our talent, enable them to build meaningful careers and drive employee productivity,” said Jacky Wright, vice president of IT at Microsoft. “Our people are the key to our continued success and SAP shares our commitment to simplifying our global processes and building modern, integrated employee experiences. As an industry leader, SAP has the human capital management expertise to help us further our mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more, including our employees.”
