SAP SuccessFactors Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for Midmarket and Large Enterprises for the Third Consecutive Year

As an HR leader, you know it’s critical that you connect your workforce to your organization’s purpose. Time and time again, research and results show that when you do, you — and your business — improve results.

Companies that prioritize purpose in their workforce have increased sales by 20 percent, 1.4 times higher employee engagement and retention, and see six percent higher returns on their stock price (Project ROI Report, 2015 & EY, 2015).

As you strive for similar results and digitally transform HR and your organizations, we realize the importance of advice and guidance. With this in mind, we’re honored to announce that for the third consecutive year, SAP SuccessFactors has been named a Leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for Midmarket and Large Enterprises. According to Gartner,

“Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how HCM 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 cloud HCM suite market, Leaders show a consistent ability to win deals, including the foundational elements of admin HR (with a large number of country-specific HR localizations) and high attach rates of TM, WFM and HRSD capabilities. They have multiple proof points of successful implementations. Further, these customers have workforces deployed in more than one of the main geographic regions (North America, Europe, MENA, Latin America and Asia/Pacific), in a wide variety of vertical industries and sizes of organization (by number of employees).

Leaders are often what other providers in the market measure themselves against.”

While we are appreciative of this recognition, we are frankly more humbled by this and feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to continue to provide you with the clarity and guidance you need to realize incredible success in your industry.
