SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — SAP SE today announced HCM Bridge to the Cloud, a program that helps customers with on-premise SAP ERP Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions transition and expand into the cloud.

By providing clear guidance, predictable outcomes, faster time to value and flexible commercial arrangements, the services and tools for digital HR transformation help customers ease the migration to cloud-based SAP SuccessFactors solutions. This is the first in a planned series of offerings to be announced in 2018 designed to help on-premise customers in their journey to the cloud.

By migrating to cloud-based SAP SuccessFactors solutions, organizations can:

  • Rethink and simplify HR with standardized and streamlined business processes
  • Engage the workforce by shifting from “HR technology” to “people technology” to meet the expectations of today’s digital, diverse and changing workforce
  • Change the way HR serves the business by providing insights that allow HR to advise leaders and keep pace with change
  • Stay current with technology innovations with updates delivered every quarter
  • Enable IT resources to focus on business-value creation and innovation rather than customization and maintenance

“We all see how digital transformation is upending business models, redefining industries, and changing the way businesses interact with their customers, their partners and their people,” SAP SuccessFactors* President Greg Tomb said. “Those who are addressing this with modern tools are seeing both better financial performance and employees who feel better connected to the business. We want to make sure all our customers are taking advantage of the innovation, insights and user experience boost of the cloud. This program is all about easing their journey so they can move forward fast.”

The HCM Bridge to the Cloud services and tools are designed to allow customers to move the right components when it makes sense for the business, all the while protecting their existing investments in HCM solutions.

A comprehensive set of services and tools are available within the HCM Bridge to the Cloud program to help make each digital HR transformation journey smooth and low risk. These include:
