SuccessFactors, an SAP Company, is positioned as a Leader in IDC’s Integrated Talent Management MarketScape report for the fourth year in a row. The report analyzes talent management vendors and delivers an overview of competitive capabilities that highlight SuccessFactors’ continued leadership in the market.

“SuccessFactors is a leader again this year,” said Lisa Rowan, program director, HR and talent management services, IDC. “The company’s ability to innovate and build on its initial offering of employee performance management software resulted in high marks for richness of the solutions.”

The IDC report highlights that in addition to talent management, SuccessFactors broadened its perspective and potential reach with its Business Execution (BizX) strategy. The report also notes that SuccessFactors has extended beyond people performance to tackle business performance, which is a natural extension to individual employee goal-setting.

IDC called out SuccessFactors’ Employee Central saying that it is, “…targeted to employers of all sizes and will likely become SAP’s cloud entrant for core HR.” SuccessFactors’ Employee Central is a next generation core HR System that provides an enterprise-class system-of-record and delivers true business impact through integration with talent, powerful analytics, enterprise collaboration and an intuitive user experience.

“It’s clear that IDC recognizes the steps SuccessFactors has taken to build the most robust suite for our customers. In the past 18 months we’ve worked aggressively to build new solutions and quickly integrate products from acquisitions to provide our customers with unmatched benefits from the breadth and depth of the combined offerings,” said Jeff Kristick, vice president of global product marketing, SuccessFactors. “To be named as a leader in the report for the fourth consecutive year speaks volumes for our dedication to innovate and integrate quickly so that our customers could deliver on their business goals.”
