In a bid to accelerate human capital management (HCM) cloud implementations, SAP has released a series of rapid deployment solutions from SuccessFactors.

The preconfigured packages now enable “quick and predictable” implementation of nearly every SuccessFactors solution for every customer type, according to SAP, which it said are an ideal choice for customer looking to incrementally change their HR landscape over the longer-term, while still tackling immediate HR needs.

The new SAP Rapid Deployment solutions (RDS) include SuccessFactors Employee Central, SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll for United States, SuccessFactors Align and Perform, and SuccessFactors Succession and Development. SAP had already made available RDS for SuccessFactors Recruiting and SuccessFactors Compensation.

Mike Ettling, president, HR line of business, SAP, said, “These additions to our rapid-deployment solution portfolio offer agility and real-time insights for more efficient HR processes. The flexibility they bring allows organisations to solve immediate needs while being able to plan for future HR decisions.”

Meanwhile, SAP has also secured a global SuccessFactors deal with leading marketing and communications player Omnicom Group.

Omnicom plans to use SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, as well as additional talent modules from the SuccessFactors HCM Suite, including Compensation, Performance and Goals, and Succession Planning, to help manage its global HR processes.

Omnicom serves over 5000 clients in 100 countries, and chose the SuccessFactors suite for the ability to enable all of its top talent and leadership decisions through a single solution, with global visibility and local market expertise.

“Omnicom Group has been recognised as the most creative company based on the awards its agencies have won, which is a testament to the unparalleled calibre of our people,” said Paolo Spada, vice president of finance, Omnicom Group.

“As a truly global organisation, we manage talent in hundreds of agencies that all have distinct employment brands. With SuccessFactors, Omnicom will simplify how we deliver and manage HR tools across our diverse organization, which lets us and our agencies focus on giving our talent the attention and growth opportunities they deserve.”
