Technology is reshaping how HR departments handle recruitment, documentation, and analysis of employee performance. Although these innovations increase efficiencies at every level, the path to implementation can be a challenge.

To keep pace with an ever-evolving market, business leaders are embracing digital innovation and empowering HR to adapt best practices, tools, and services that improve the employee experience.

With a well thought out plan and the right partner, organisations are finding that the integration of new technology can be a seamless and positive experience for HR teams.

With employees remaining the most valuable assets of any company, HR systems provide an important way to connect with prospective employees, hire and onboard new employees, as well as measure the success of current employees.

Having a system that drives better engagement with HR, while also reducing the impact on IT and HR professionals, is something that can be achieved with an upgrade to the cloud, said Rizing.

In a whitepaper titled The Comprehensive Guide for Upgrading from SAP On-Premise to SAP SuccessFactors, Rizing is providing insights into the entire process of upgrading to the cloud and SAP SuccessFactors from an on-premise Human Capital Management (HCM) environment.

The white paper will examine key factors for organisations to consider when upgrading their HCM systems, provide knowledge on accessing organisational readiness for SuccessFactors Employee Central, an integrated suite of HCM web-based applications, and explain the importance of finding the right implementation and sustainment partner for a successful cloud transformation.

Any transformation, however, will be about more than just new software, Rizing highlighted. Instead, it represents a transformation around how people live their lives and meet the expectation to have that same level of connection at work.

Putting the employee at the centre of everything enables organisations to build the processes that increase happiness, and in turn increase retention and make the organisation a more attractive place to work.

And while there continue to be increasing expectations for a consumer-grade experience in all parts of the organisation, HR systems should take a leading role. Employee-centricity can go beyond attracting and retaining the best talent, to attracting and retaining customers. These, said Rizing, go hand-in-hand, but everything starts with human capital.

With the wealth of data and analysis tools available in the cloud, organisations can give HR the ability to predict with accuracy and react with speed. While recognising that making the transition from on-premise to the cloud for HR software can be a major decision, Rizing believes that all companies will eventually make the change.

Making the upgrade now will allow organisations to set themselves apart from their competitors and allow their employees to seize opportunities in innovation, customer service and collaboration for many years to come.

An SAP SuccessFactors ecosystem, concluded Rizing, will allow organisations to make a successful transformation by providing a broad range of implementation skillsets, solutions and methodologies.
