3 objectives for this presentation:Share our vision for how we see Human Capital Management evolvingProvide you with an overview of the SuccessFactors Core HR platform, Employee CentralOffer some early visibility into the momentum we’ve seen, and how we plan to accelerate that momentum in the coming months with SAP
To start, I wanted to share a few interesting stats about the workforce with you:93% of the workforce doesn’t understand the company strategy and goals84% of companies aren’t using their workforce to its full potential50% of the average workforce’s capacity is wasted on non-productive workIt’s increasingly evident that the biggest opportunity for organizations is to move from the automation of processes to the optimization and improvement of people…Consider the business challenges caused by these realities: what does an unaligned or unproductive workforce do to an organization’s ability to innovate? How does it impact your ability to grow or move into new markets? What does it do to your corporate culture or your ability to retain the people who are getting calls from your competitors? These are major challenges that organizations are facing today…so it’s not surprising that things like workforce alignment, efficiency and productivity have entered the spotlight as the CEO’s most critical business prioritiesAnd because HR is the only group with the perspective and ability to affect the entire workforce—where they work, how they work, what they’re working on, how they get up to speed and share knowledge, etc. – the role of HR MUST evolve to inform and facilitate the organization’s most strategic workforce decisions.[CLICK TO BUILD]But today’s reality is that HR leaders aren’t equipped to own this transition…A recent study indicated that only 7% of CHRO’s leverage data-driven metrics and analytics to make strategic workforce decisions. This means 93% of CHRO’s are either not involved in the workforce decision making process at all, or they’re making decisions based on limited or no measurable data. Transition: But what if you could get the kind of visibility required to help the organization meet its business priorities?
If you think about it, there’s a ton of data being generated about the workforce across an organization’s core HR, benefits, payroll, and talent management applications…in fact, it’s all there: from the structured enterprise profile of an employee, job information, job history, compensation, performance, development plans, career aspirations, and just about anything else you can think of. But, how effectively is that data being used to drive business outcomes? The reality is that traditional HCM systems have served as more of a business “utility” than an engine for business execution. While these systems have been (and continue to be) effective at helping organizations drive regulatory compliance and keep the “people lights” on, they’re rarely (if ever) regarded as investments that drive strategic business value.[CLICK TO BUILD]So the opportunity we see for HR is to see “the bigger picture” as it relates to the productivity, utilization, abilities of the workforce—to inform and influence strategic workforce decisions—and to effectively execute on those decisions. What if you could understand your organization’s revenue per employee across different lines of business? Could you use that as a metric to help you determine which teams/functions are most productive and which ones need help? What if you could compare your organization’s productivity against industry benchmarks to see how you’re stacking up against your competitors?What if you could mitigate turnover among critical roles and top performers because you’re able to understand why they might leave before they do? What could it mean for your business if you were able to reduce turnover among top performers by 5 or 10%?And as your organization evolves—you acquire companies, you move into new markets or new regions—what if you could make data-driven decisions that ensure the right people are working on the right things; the right people are in the right functions and locations…etc.Transition: These are just a few examples that speak to HR’s opportunity to lead an organization’s shift from automation to workforce optimization….but why are we saying that these things are possible now? What’s different today as compared to a few years ago?
For starters, one of the biggest evolutions the industry has seen is in how HCM solutions are consumed and delivered. Companies are making a big shift away from legacy, premises-based HR systems to SaaS-based solutions that offer a number of proven benefits:Significantly better TCO delivered through reduced infrastructure & personnel costs, and consistent, subscription-based pricingFaster implementations and upgrades, with almost no downtimeAnd a platform from which to take advantage of innovation on a much more frequent, and ongoing basis. In short, SaaS frees up valuable time and resources for CIO’s to spend less time worrying about managing and maintaining technology, and more time focused on strategic initiatives that drive growth, productivity, and innovation for the organization….less time as a utility, and more time focused on business drivers…Transition: So, from our perspective, SaaS is an important evolution in how organizations consume and deploy applications…which is why SuccessFactors has been a true SaaS provider for HR and talent applications from the start.
SuccessFactors delivers its BizX suite of applications as a service, in what we call the “BizX Cloud”We’ve led the way in developing and refining SaaS-based HR applications since the company was founded over a decade ago. Today, SuccessFactors has more than 3,500 customers, and over 15 million users in the BizX Cloud — the most users of any business software cloud on the planet, and more than all our major competitors combined. Our largest customer deployment is to 2 million users on a single instance…We offer true, end-to-end security with ISO 27002 and SSAE 16 SOC2 compliance across all of our products, and are an active contributor to cloud security standardsUnlike some of our competitors who deliver their software as a service by dedicating a single instance to each customer, SuccessFactors delivers true multi-tenant SaaS via a modern, and extensible architecture…this enables significantly more efficiency and scale, and enables us to accelerate our innovation much faster than our peers—our customers take advantages of 4 major releases to our software per year. So, SaaS is absolutely in our DNA but, from our perspective, it’s really just table stakes. Transition:While we see SaaS as an important EVOLUTION in how business applications are delivered and consumed, we look at the ways in which these applications can be used—what we call “business execution”—as the real REVOLUTION.
Rather than attempting to simply offer legacy technology alternatives in the cloud and calling it a revolution, we are taking a top down approach to HCM—starting with the business priorities, and mapping an HCM strategy to those priorities to support…Most companies have a challenge turning their strategy into business results because of poor or unfocused execution. They have an ‘execution gap’ between their intentions and their actions. We believe that YOU are the key to eliminating the execution gap. And that’s where SuccessFactors can help. Our BizX suite helps you do three things better than any other business software – align and optimize your people and accelerate your business results: Align : your workforce with your business strategyOptimize: workforce performance across the organization Accelerate: business results with the Workforce(BizX) Insights you need to answer the strategic questionsTransition:SuccessFactors’ BizX suite gives you the tools to turn your strategy into business results through your workforce.Rather than attempting to simply offer legacy technology alternatives in the cloud and calling it a revolution, we are taking a top down approach to HCM—starting with the business priorities, and mapping an HCM strategy to those priorities to support…Most companies have a challenge turning their strategy into business results because of poor or unfocused execution.

Aligning and getting people working on the right things is what a lot of you know us for. We started here, and we continue to lead here because it’s so critical to a company’s success. Our solution helps drive alignment across your entire organization by breaking down your strategy into a series of goals, cascading those goals to every employee in the company, and then tracking progress against those goals. This ensures that your people are aware of the company strategy, and working on the right things to support that strategy. In this way we’ll help you drive focus, visibility, and accountability across your business. We’ve been aligning workforces for more than ten years, and we’re the best at it. Next, SuccessFactors helps you optimize your workforce performance with the broadest and deepest set of talent management solutions on the market. We offer solutions for every part of the employee lifecycle to make sure that you can find the right people, get them in the right roles and can reward, motivate and develop them into future leaders. Our tightly integrated solutions support a full set mobile devices and functions across the suite. Then we help you accelerate the business and speed workforce productivity through our Workforce Analytics and Social Collaboration solutions (Jam). Perhaps most important of all is the foundation for our BizX suite – our next generation, global, core HR solution, Employee Central, which captures and combines the employee system of record with all of this additional data that is being generated about them in the suite of talent applications. Transition: Business Execution is what sets SuccessFactors apart, and it’s consistently why our customers choose us.
We hired a top three strategy consulting firm to survey over 500 of our customers about the value they’re getting from SuccessFactors, and this is what they heard:In terms of workforce alignment:Customers saw a 5.5% increase in time spent on strategic initiatives13.8% decrease in low performersAnd a significant increase in the communication and dissemination of the company strategyWorkforce optimization:A 15.2% decrease in turnoverAlmost 5% increase in high performers17% increase in people getting the right trainingAnd a 13.7% increase in internal job fillsAnd for acceleration:It’s all about speeding and improving workforce productivity: a 14% increase in project completion, and over 5% increase in high end productivity…These are real resultsand, as you can see, they’re being realized by some of the world’s largest companies and most popular brands…THIS is the opportunity we see for HR, and it’s consistently why our customers choose SuccessFactors.

[CLICK TO BUILD] According to Gartner, integration between Core HRMS and Talent Management Applications is critically important as inconsistency in data between the two can result in breakdowns in processes like: workforce planning, talent acquisition, pay for performance, or workforce development.
