    Paul Smitherman |

    The modules of SuccessFactors work independently and cover the entire HR process. This means you can expand your functionalities and HR processes as needed. In addition, from graphical dashboards you can click to the underlying data.

    SuccessFactors started in 2001 and has been part of the SAP organisation since 2012. It is the standard HCM cloud software with 4 new releases each year.

    The HR functionalities

    There are data centers around the world that can be used by SuccessFactors. Within Europe, your data is stored in heavily secured and approved datacenters in the Netherlands or Germany and all datacenters meet the highest possible requirements. SAP ensures compliance with your data protection provisions and is governed by local law.
