I like how easy it is to stay in the know on the latest updates from SAP SuccessFactors. If you are not taking advantage of them already, here are my top 2 ways to stay in the know with SAP SuccessFactors:
1. SAP SuccessFactors Release Updates
Over the past few years, customer sentiment has been mixed about SAP SuccessFactors quarterly release cycles. Some were fond of the continuous innovation, while others were concerned with staying up-to-date with the latest updates. Recently, SAP SuccessFactors announced that they are changing from a quarterly (four times a year) cycle to a biannual (twice a year) release cycle (see the announcement here (SAP ID required).
The Important Bits:
2020 Release Dates: Targeted Production Release dates are May 15, 2020 and November 20, 2020, with Preview Releases occurring about four weeks prior.
Affected Products: All products previously on a quarterly cadence will follow the twice a year release schedule. Unaffected Products: SAP SuccessFactors Mobile and Recruiting Posting’s monthly release schedule will continue.
SAP has also noted that non-disruptive, business-critical or compliance-related fixes will continue to occur within regularly scheduled weekly maintenance windows.
SAP SuccessFactors does a great job of sharing the details of their Release Notes and product strategy
