Hiring an HCM SaaS consultant – tactics for the savvy customer ->Great to see +Jon Reed release an article on some of +Luke Marson  and my talking points in a video shot earlier in the year.
Hiring a good HCM SaaS consultant isn't a simple as setting aside budget. I talked to two SaaS consultants about how to do it right.

It has been another very eventful year in HR Technology, and per Josh Bersin this next year is shaping up to be another. Last year at this time, a group of friends and I collaborated to write The Future of SAP HCM Consulting and SuccessFactors - 2014 to talk about our views on the SAP HCM and SuccessFactors world but a lot of people continue to reach out to me trying to understand what lies ahead and how to make the transition into SuccessFactors...

Enjoyed this article on a #SuccessFactors  customer as it talked about some of the challenges that customers typically face on a HR cloud technology implementation.
The engineering group, Meggitt is rolling-out cloud-based talent management technology to 12,000 employees worldwide, as part of its strategy to integrate businesses units across 17 countries

Interview with Mike Ettling, #SAP's President for HCM ->Thought this was very well done and had a great combination of being personal yet sharing an important message in a short and easy to consume format.  Devil is in the details and execution but should be a model for marketing going forward.  #SuccessFactors

Trajectory. The future is bright for SuccessFactors

Excellent blog +thomas otter  and I think your final paragraph is a must read for every customer considering making a new HR technology purchase.  I loved the "decade" comment as well as many think that because of the SaaS subscription model it is easy to change vendors but in reality core HRMS projects are complex and there is some lock in with the vendor that customers pick.
 
I wrote about SuccessFactors Employee Central almost a year ago in this blog My Thoughts on SuccessFactors Employee Central (and am due for a follow up) but I have been extremely impressed with the speed and the amount of new functionality that has come in the past year.  While there is a long road ahead and additional functionality needed (as there is for the competitors offerings as well) I feel that EC has the least technical debt of any SAP/SF offering and it shows with the amount of new functionality that is being released and will continue to come and that should matter to customers.
 
Lastly, I know that SAP/SF cannot share major customer wins unless they have permission of those customers (which is sometimes challenging) but I can tell you have been extremely impressed with some of the big names and big customers that have chosen EC over the past several months so there is some real momentum in the offering.
 
I made a choice to focus on EC and ECP shortly after you joined as I saw the trends toward SaaS based HR offering especially in North America, felt you would make a real difference, understood SAP had to make a huge investment given competitive pressure and glad to see the "trajectory" is going in the direction I expected.

As an entrepreneur, product designer and product manager for people management software, I have seen a number of problems related to creating useful products, and getting things done in a distributed environment. I decided to keep track of some common scenarios. All views are mine.
