Boomi and HR: SuccessFactors at SAP’s SuccessConnect 2017 in London

SAP SuccessFactors customers will convene on June 12-14 at the SuccessConnect 2017 conference in London to explore how to make the most of SuccessFactors’ leading cloud-based human capital management (HCM) platform.

Integration of SuccessFactors with related applications within an enterprise is an essential element for modernizing human resources processes. With it, organizations can enhance the strategic role of HR and streamline such processes as recruitment, onboarding, payroll, benefits and financials.

Dell Boomi, a SuccessConnect Platinum Sponsor, will be at booth #2 to showcase our integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for SuccessFactors HCM.

More than one thousand SuccessFactors customers have taken advantage of the Boomi iPaaS to build HCM integrations. Our cloud-native platform has been bundled into SuccessFactors Employee Central under a longtime partnership.

Boomi is hosting a breakout session at 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, June 13: “Real-Time HR Processes at Scale with Boomi and SuccessFactors Intelligent Services.” Boomi experts will discuss how you can turn HR onboarding into a seamless, automated process that significantly reduces the chance of manual data input errors.

SuccessFactors Intelligent Services is a real-time, rules-based engine that consolidates transactions triggered by employee events. When combined with the Boomi iPaaS, events are enriched with additional data and can span across both SuccessFactors and third-party platforms.

The Importance of HCM Integration

Integration with SuccessFactors is a growing need for many organizations. While SuccessFactors provides a complete HCM suite, some customers run the core Employee Central module and rely on best-of-breed systems for payroll, benefits administration, recruiting, time and attendance, and related functions. Integration is critical to automate those processes.

At the same time, many organizations benefit by integrating SuccessFactors HCM with non-HR systems such as an ERP/financials system from SAP, Oracle, NetSuite and others. That reconciles employee compensation into the general ledger and maintains a single employee record across the organization.

Integration between SuccessFactors and an identity management platform such as Microsoft Active Directory is another common scenario. An iPaaS like Boomi ensures that a new hire is properly provisioned in Active Directory with email, application access/single sign-on, equipment, and organizational associations such as department and manager.

Over time, iPaaS ensures that promotions, hierarchical changes and other processes are synchronized between SuccessFactors and Active Directory. In event of termination, integration ensures that email, application access and other privileges are immediately revoked — an important security consideration.

Whatever the use case, Boomi provides flexible, robust integration that can be rapidly configured between SuccessFactors and any combination of cloud or on-premise applications. A library of pre-built connectors and a unified cloud environment to build, deploy and manage integrations have helped make Boomi the integration platform of choice for SuccessFactors customers.
