HXM_Cover new-11As SAP® SuccessFactors® continues to innovate, they have made it easier to stay in the know on the latest product updates and road map developments. 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. SAP SuccessFactors First Half 2022 release: Preview is scheduled for April 15, 2022,  and Production release is scheduled for May 20, 2022.

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

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.

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.
