Adding Meta Llama 3 to the generative AI hub allows developers in the SAP ecosystem to leverage its value-adding features. The 70B variant of Meta Llama 3 will be the largest open-source model available on the generative AI hub. 

SAP SuccessFactors Text-to-Image Generation Requirements 

SAP customers are exploring ways to enhance the visual appeal and relevance of images within the SAP SuccessFactors HCM suite. The current process of curating and uploading images can be time-consuming and costly, often resulting in generic images that only partially cater to specific scenarios while also incurring expenses associated with stock image licensing.

Integrating the latest iteration of Meta’s open-source large language model (LLM) offers numerous benefits. Creative features from models such as Llama 3 come into play in a scenario like this, empowering users to generate custom images that better meet their needs within SAP SuccessFactors software. Whether it is customizable course content thumbnails and banners for learning, tailored images for assignments in SAP SuccessFactors Opportunity Marketplace, unique images for different themes on the home page, or personalized profile and banner images on people profile, the impact will be far reaching. 

By streamlining the image creation process, reducing costs, and ensuring that every image is suited to its context, this feature will undoubtedly improve user engagement and the overall platform experience. SAP customers should get ready to explore a new world of custom imagery tailored to their exact specifications, sparkling excitement and intrigue among stakeholders.
