First Step Towards an entry in SAP HCM

Hi Experts

Some days back, I wrote a query about doing a certification in SAP HCM on this platform to which quite supportive people replied. As and when I decided to go for the certification and gathered some info, some experienced people cautioned me about doing it as they said that SAP HCM would soon be offset by SucessFactors. Hence there is no point investing your time and effort in the certification...Also I came to know that there is no certification or training provided in SuccessFactors...

Now my point is that how as a Fresher should I take a first step to enter in the industry as all these things are quite mingled with each other?

Welcome your suggestions!

    Hi Kanupriya,

    I don't think that Success Factors will make SAP HCM redundant in the near future. Both will co-exist in the near term for sure and some customers will go for hybrid option of having both Success Factors and SAP HCM.

    I have also replied to you in gmail regarding your earlier query.

    For Success Factors training and certification, please refer the below blog from Luke.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks and regards,

    Vivek Barnwal

    Nothing to worry

    Go ahead with SAP Certification , Once you are setteled we think about Success Factors

    SAP and Sucess Facors must co exists and it takes lot of time for SAP to become redundant
