SuccessFactors Competencies and Curricula Integration With SAP ERP Qualifications White Paper

SAP ERP customers in multiple industries use employee qualifications stored in the Employee Qualifications Profile in SAP to make day-to-day operational decisions. For example, a supervisor working for an SAP customer in the oil and gas industry, may refer to the Qualifications Profile of an employee in SAP before giving that employee a particular work assignment.

An employee acquires a qualification, in most cases, by completing a training program. These training programs are managed in a learning management system. Hundreds of SAP customers use SuccessFactors Learning, SAP’s learning management system in the cloud, to manage such learning. Before June 2014, when an employee acquired a qualification as a result of a course completion in SuccessFactors Learning, that information was not sent to the Employee Qualifications Profile in SAP.

In some cases changes in an employee’s qualification might come from a system that is not a learning management system. For example a performance management system could update an employee’s qualifications. Hundreds of SAP customers use the SuccessFactors Talent Solutions suite which has applications that influence or directly update an employee's qualifications. Before June 2014, when an employee acquired a qualification as a result of such an update, that information was not sent to the Employee Qualifications Profile in SAP.
