Regarding successfactors

Hi all,

I have quite a few questions as to how successfactors is with SAP :

1. There are 2 models possible in SFSF

-first one - SAP On- Premise (consisting Core HR, PA/OM, Payroll, etc. as well as Talent mgmt/E-recruiting/LSO.....)

SAP On-Demand (Cloud) - ( SUCCESSFACTORS - Employee central , Performance & goals, Compensation, Learning)

Interface is available between the two. So how does this interface work! Does the client need to have traditional/On-Premise talent management as a pre- requisite. Also what tools are used for this interface configuration, if any! Can we customize anything for the interface in this scenario!

-Second(hybrid) - SAP On-Premise - PA/OM, Successfactors - Talent mgmt. I think there is an FTP interface with some reports to transfer data between SAP HCM and Successfactors.

Please valid my points and comment more. Please let me know if there are any more models possible!

    Hi Bharat,

    There are two models for SuccessFactors:

    • Hybrid
    • Full Cloud HCM

    Hybrid is using SAP HCM for core HR and SuccessFactors BizX for talent management. Full Cloud HCM is using the entire SuccessFactors BizX suite (with or without SAP HCM as system of record).

    Integration between SAP HCM and SuccessFactors BizX is available in a number of methods:

    • Flat-file
    • Middleware usingSAP NetWeaver PI or, as of March 2013, SAP HANA Cloud Integration
    • Dell Boomi AtomSphere (for Employee Central only, including SAP Cloud Payroll)
    • Social-Media ABAP Integration Library (for SAP Jam only)

    The first two options leverage Integration Package 1.0 for SAP HCM and SuccessFactors, although custom integration using both platforms without SAP's standard content is also possible. Standard integration only exists for basic org and employee data and part of the Compensation process. Recruiting process content will be released in March as Integration Package 2.0 for SAP HCM and SuccessFactors. Additional content will be released on an ongoing basis.

    Best regards,

    Hi Bharat,

    It's a very relevant question that you have asked. Luke has already given very apt and precise answer.There are different types of integration available (PI,HANA Cloud and File Handling)with SAP on-premise systems and SuccessFactors which depend upon the variations of the environment.I earnestly believe that,the below mentioned URL (Blog) will answer some of your queries.
