WALLDORF — For the third year in a row, SuccessFactors, an SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) company, has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites (TMS).”*

The report evaluated cloud-based HR solutions and recognized SuccessFactors as a leading provider of talent management software based on its “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” The Magic Quadrant assesses the market for talent management suites, which help enterprises manage the key workforce processes of plan to source, acquire to onboard, perform to reward and assess to develop.

According to the report, Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how TM technology can help HR leaders achieve business objectives. Leaders have the ability to execute against that vision through products and services, and have demonstrated solid business results in the form of revenue and earnings. In the TM suite market, Leaders show a consistent ability to win broad suite deals. They have significant successful customer deployments in North America, EMEA and the Asia/Pacific region in a wide variety of vertical industries and with multiple proof points. Leaders are often what other providers in the market measure themselves against.
