Exploring the Q4 2017 SuccessFactors Update B1711 (PART 1)

It’s getting into the winter months (for those of us in the Northern hemisphere), but while some people may be getting themselves into the Christmas spirit, I myself refuse to have anything to do with it until December. So instead, I’m going to curl up in front of the fire and look at all of the new developments being released by SAP SuccessFactors for Q4 2017. With 263 changes (131 of those universally applied) there’s not quite as much to go through as in the last release, but quite enough to digest.

The highlights of this quarter’s release include new strategies on data privacy and data retention which will be a big theme starting from this release and continuing into 2018 with the new GDPR (discussed in detail in our blogs). There’s also continued emphasis on improved system configuration management capabilities and cross module process improvements.

In the first of our series of posts Stephanie Perks, Consultant, ROC, takes a look at what the new revision of Employee Central offers to SuccessFactors customers, and of what you need to know. There is a major development for workflow emails, expanded localisation for smaller countries, an additional enhancement to the Company Structure Overview and new Position Management features.
