As outlined in my earlier blog titled Staying in the Know with Quarterly Updates from SAP SuccessFactors, I like how easy it is to keep informed on the latest updates for our Human Capital Management systems. SAP SuccessFactors continually makes key information available to customers and partners.

These are the five best links to use today to stay in the know with SAP SuccessFactors:

1) Product Release & Road Map Information

(Valid SAP ID required)

This website provides easy access to all of the SAP SuccessFactors release resources in a single place including:
  • Registration for the Release Q&A Series
  • Release Highlights videos
  • Amy Wilson's Release Highlights video
  • Release Highlights Document
  • Innovation Alerts
  • Road to the Release
  • Known Issues
  • Notable Fixed Issues
  • and the ability to subscribe to the Release newsletter

2) Road Map Explorer

(Valid SAP ID required)
This is the best place to go to access a detailed view of the SAP roadmaps including an up-to-date overview on planned and available innovations, as well as technical information, through an interactive roadmap experience.

3) What’s New Viewer

(Valid SAP ID required)
This is the best place to go to access a detailed view of the product updates with the ability to use filters to find exactly what you are looking for. It’s designed as an easy way to stay informed on the latest scope of products and solutions, and it’s great for technical or functional consultants, business stakeholders and so on. In the example screen below, I looked for updates related to the Payroll Control Center in SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll and I indicated I was interested in ‘New’ functionality only. From there I could also link directly into detailed SAP help on the topic.

4) HXM Movement page

Everything exciting happening in the SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management space is related to the HXM Movement Program. This website allows you to stay in the know on what is happening in HXM Move so you can be sure that you are staying connected with the latest updates in the global program that are important to you and your organization. It includes Tools, Services, Customer Success Stories, Training Courses and more. Some sections require a valid SAP ID.
