Overall Satisfaction with SAP SuccessFactors Learning

I work in a SuccessFactors partner company, I am responsible for SuccessFactors Talent Management delivery, including Goals, Performance, Compensation, Learning, Succession, Analytics and Integration. Our customers use different SuccessFactors modules based on their needs. My organization used SuccessFactors internally for performance management and knowledge management. SuccessFactors solutions help organizations to align the workforce with strategy and optimize their performance management.
  • It´s a very complete talent management suite, provides complete offers across all talent processes, recruiting, learning, performance, social. SuccessFactors has a high level of functionality.
  • It´s fully configurable application. This allows a rapid implementation and goes live in a short time.
  • It´s easy to use and a very intuitive application.
  • The integration between the different modules is not well resolved. In some cases it´s necessary to duplicate information or a complex configuration.
  • The SAP integration is already poor. SuccessFatcors supports a standard integration but the space it´s very limited.
  • The post sales service and support has room for improvement.
  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Complete analisys and standard reporting.
  • The price is very high.
  • A poor customer service.
SuccessFactors is a cloud solution and competes directly with Cornerstone or Workday. I think SuccessFactors is more complete that Cornerstone because it delivers more modules and functionalities. In the other hand I think that Conerstone is a more organic application and offers more robust solutions, with higher rates of quality.

I think it´s very appropriate for a medium company with a very standard talent management process. In particular for LMS or Performance management solutions, they are the most complete solutions. It´s a very flexible solution that can easily adapt to the company needs. The integration between modules is the weakest point. It´s also not an organic application, it´s really the result of multiple acquisitions.

Perhaps the most important question during the selection process: What is the functionality of the different modules and technical integrations?
