Sap Se issued the following announcement on Sept. 13.
SAP SE (NYSE :SAP ) announced that it is building an open community of purpose-built and easy-to-consume applications designed to tackle the most critical people issues facing human resources (HR) professionals and business leaders today. With this community approach, the company and its SAP SuccessFactors division is bringing together organizations of all sizes, from enterprises to startups, to co-create "simple solutions to big problems."
"We are seeing unprecedented levels of innovation in HR technology," SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb said. "The old ways of working are no longer relevant for HR or for employees. We are in the midst of a 'human revolution' that requires organizations to invest and intently focus on the people who differentiate their businesses and drive business outcomes. With this community, we can help assemble a complementary set of solutions for our customers' diverse needs. And, if they don't exist yet, we can co-create them together."
Building upon the success of SAP® App Center, this new community consists of partners organized around six initial pillars: well-being, pay equity, real-time feedback, unbiased recruiting, predictive performance and internal mobility. It will offer current and prospective SAP SuccessFactors customers a curated set of solutions to augment their existing systems and tap into the latest sources of innovation faster than ever.
SAP will continue to expand its network of partners and pillars in the coming quarters to cover all aspects of the employee journey.
As an example, the SAP SuccessFactors organization is working together with Thrive Global to operationalize a culture of well-being and improve the employee experience overall. As with SAP, Thrive Global believes that to inspire peak performance in employees and companies, it is critical to focus on the human element. Together with SAP SuccessFactors® solutions and Thrive Global, organizations can truly offer a comprehensive well-being strategy for their employees.
Additional partners comprising this new community are focused on providing solutions to other critical people issues, including:
