SAP SuccessFactors Initial Setup

Head of SAP HCM Practice at Al Fanar
The initial setup was straightforward. Deployment times will vary from country to country according to the numbers, but most companies can implement it within three to six months. You need to have some technical people on your team with you. You need one or two just to hand you each module and to help you understand the standard process so you can deploy and not forget any important features. From the business side, you also need from one to two people to be available during the implementation just to ensure that the user acceptance testing is done very well. It's a good idea to have a consultant visit with your team during implementation to check what was implemented inside of the business processes. They will help you understand the limitation of the space. View full review »

The initial setup is straightforward because there are templates and best practices. We can just click on the button from the online center, deploy it into the system, and it sets it up for us. The time it takes to deploy depends on the requirements and it depends on the number of modes that you deploy. As long as you have clear requirements from the client, it can take between three and four months. It doesn’t take too much time to deploy as long as you have clear requirements. View full review »

The initial setup is somewhat complex. We get the software and it's in the cloud and they still said we'd have to do a lot of integration with our recorded on-premise systems for it. It's not that simple, it's quite complex. There is a lot of coordination involved in order to make it happen. View full review »

SAP SuccessFactors Function Head at EOH
The initial setup of this solution is not complex at all. It is very easy. If we have any issues then we can ask technical support for an answer. The length of time for deployment depends on the customer and their environment, but I expect that it takes four months at the maximum. For our client, the deployment took approximately three months, and four people were involved. One or two people are sufficient for maintenance. View full review »
