Take the Cloud Readiness Check – are you ready for SuccessFactors?

With the Cloud Readiness Check, companies are taking an important step towards digitalization. After all, employee recruitment and retention, as well as the development of existing employees, are increasingly complex tasks as part of modern HR work that can only be future-proofed with intelligent digital tools. A human capital management system (HCM) is well suited for this purpose. However, some functions and modules do not focus on the needs and requirements of the user:inside, but rather on functionality. With SuccessFactors, SAP® provides a cloud solution that can be adapted to your requirements at any time – thanks to a high degree of customization.


You lack an overview of the HCM infrastructure

Companies often want switch to SAP SuccessFactors, but are not sure whether this is the right way to go. One reason for this is that there is often a lack of overview of the current use of HCM on-premise system components and customizations, and whether they are still being used at all. When evaluating the HCM system landscape, many consulting agencies focus purely on the concept and less on the actual requirements and needs of candidates and employees. In addition, collecting the relevant data to obtain the SAP® SuccessFactors implementation readiness assessment is too expensive and complex.

Questions & answers about cloud readiness

What is cloud readiness?

Cloud readiness involves checking whether a company’s business processes and services can be mapped in the cloud. As part of the cloud readiness check, we carry out a comprehensive analysis and find the right solutions.

What is a cloud assessment?

During a cloud assessment, current trends are included for a comprehensive analysis of the company’s internal IT landscape and processes in order to identify problem areas in a targeted manner.

With a cloud assessment, we also help companies to identify potential business cases and provide customers with a comprehensive understanding of their current IT landscape. This includes a detailed analysis of the existing infrastructure, applications and data. Based on these findings, we develop a customized cloud strategy that is tailored to the company’s specific needs and goals. We also offer support with the implementation and management of cloud solutions to ensure a smooth transition and optimal use of cloud resources. With our cloud assessment, companies can fully exploit the benefits of cloud technology and make their business processes more efficient.

What cloud strategies are there?

There are different strategies, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. In addition to costs and security, many other factors are taken into account when planning a strategy. Possible cloud strategies are:

  1. The public cloud strategy: An external cloud solution is used by different companies. Customer data is stored securely and can be accessed at any time. Meanwhile, the provider takes over both the maintenance and administration of the solution – eliminating the need for maintenance and operation for the companies using it.
  2. The private cloud strategy: For companies, such a strategy means operating their own cloud solution. This gives them more control over the operation of the cloud infrastructure. Operating your own cloud is a sensible option, especially with regard to compliance and security requirements. In some cases, the effort can be reduced by using a managed solution.
  3. The multi-cloud strategy: This is a strategy with the greatest possible flexibility. Finally, the services of different providers are used and combined with each other. Another decisive factor is the ability to always have the right provider for the challenge at hand. However, additional costs are incurred for integration.
  4. The hybrid cloud strategy: In this strategy, the different models are combined with each other in order to utilize the respective advantages. However, the complexity of managing the various interconnected systems is also increasing.
What are cloud resources?

This combines IT resources that are made available via the Internet. They are offered as a service and can be utilized as required. Possible cloud resources are:

  • Storage space: Data storage in the cloud allows data to be outsourced. This allows them to be exchanged between different departments and processed together.
  • Computing power: This gives companies the ability to process large volumes of data effectively.
  • Applications: Software that can be used in the cloud enables access from anywhere. In many cases, only Internet access is required, while the hardware used by the user is irrelevant.
