Last week we experienced a very exciting SuccessConnect conference in Las Vegas at the Venetian. The beautiful setting was apt for the discussion of what in my mind, has become the only go-to HR solution in the market. What excitement I felt when we heard about the go-forward plans for the core Employee Central products as well as the planned enhancements that are coming down the Via Appia in the next six to nine months or so.
As a former SAP veteran of 8 years, I am re-energized in a way that I have not been since the old release 4.5 through 4.8 of yore for the on premise product. This is heady stuff folks! Back then we were thrilled to see Payroll getting legs, and self service being launched.
Now we hear about extensibility in a SaaS model, high levels of integration, options for the type of integration we are seeking, and yes, even more functionality in what one might consider ‘core’, integration engines, the leveraging of pre-built integration scenarios for conversions, and, and, and….. The speed of innovation is mind-boggling and the creativity associated with that innovation is as well. User experience being first and foremost? Unheard of . Until now.
Welcome to the rocket ride. I should say welcome back if you are of a ‘certain age’ and saw the previous rocket ride when SAP initially took off.
THIS is when it gets fun. I am so privileged to be a part of it. We are drinking water out of a fire hose again and I love it!
