These guidelines provide your implementation team with best practices to use as a guiding tool for impending deployments.


    By reading this article, you will:

    • Learn how your organization can save rework in configuration in one or all three areas—Recruiting Management, Onboarding, and Employee Centralby consistently designing the integration of these solutions
    • Understand not only the configuration options but also the data dependencies within this system process flow
    • Realize the significance of cross-functional cooperation and communications between workstreams
    • Gain insights on which is the best order for implementing these solutions

    Are you preparing to implement the “big three” modules in the SAP SuccessFactors suite? Implementing Recruiting Management, Onboarding, and Employee Central can yield benefits to an organization. You have all your hiring and employee data in one system. However, you need to carefully consider some points to make sure you get the most benefit out of these integrated modules. Integrating data correctly across these modules will prevent lots of rework and make the system much more friendly to your end users.

    Many organizations are implementing these three SAP SuccessFactors solutions, Recruiting Management, Onboarding, and Employee Central, in a siloed fashion. The siloed model for the implementation design results in much of the initial design work needing to be redone to synchronize the process. Decisions made in one area for configuration directly affect the overall system flow of the three modules. We provide you with an informative guide for minimizing the risks associated with this kind of multi-module implementation.
