SAP is trying to revolutionise the HR practices by developing an open community of purpose-built and easy-to-consume applications, which are specifically designed to solve the most critical problems facing human resources (HR) management. The new community approach would bring together all organisations big or small, regardless of their field of activity.

“Today, we are seeing unprecedented levels of innovation in HR technology,” SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb said. “The old ways of working are no longer relevant for HR or for employees. We are in the midst of a ‘human revolution’ that requires organizations to invest and intently focus on the people who differentiate their businesses and drive business outcomes. With this community, we can help assemble a complementary set of solutions for our customers’ diverse needs. And, if they don’t exist yet, we can co-create them together.”

Building upon the success of SAP® App Center, this new community consists of partners organised around six initial pillars: well-being, pay equity, real-time feedback, unbiased recruiting, predictive performance and internal mobility. It will offer current and prospective SAP SuccessFactors customers a curated set of solutions to augment their existing systems and tap into the latest sources of innovation faster than ever.

SAP will continue to expand its network of partners and pillars in the coming quarters to cover all aspects of the employee journey.
