Ingentis Summary: HR in the Cloud

How SAP and SAP SuccessFactors meet with expectations
BoxViews (PresseBox) (Nürnberg, ) Flexible, intuitive and chic – this is, what is expected from a modern HR cloud system. Flexibility that means supporting agility in working. Besides, an intuitive software should fulfill the easy-to-use approach. And at last, chic and useful designs are demanded.

How does SAP meet with those expectations? On the SAP HANA Cloud Platform numerous cloud applications are offered. The idea: “Reimagined or differentiating HR processes often requires more than out-of-the-box functionality. (…) This is why more and more companies are turning to SAP HANA Cloud Platform as their solution of choice for an open, shared platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to build, run, and extend their existing applications.”[1]

An example: Ingentis org.manager [web] for SF. The SAP certified solution for automated organizational charting is available on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform and offers flexible visualization possibilities: any kind of hierarchical structure can be displayed. Key figures can be highlighted in the organizational chart. There are no limits to the design and content. Besides, the application meets with individuality and can be adapted to the company’s Corporate Design.

Ingentis org.manager [web] for SF is integrated in the Employee Central and can be launched directly through the SAP SuccessFactors user interface. The Employee Central can “easily connect with on-premises or cloud-based apps like ERP, time and attendance, and benefits.”[2] The solution is completely SaaS-based and should have a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than on-premise core HR solutions.[3] SAP SuccessFactors recognizes the trend of “more technology-savvy people – those who have grown up using collaborative, user-friendly, and graphic technology – are now entering the workforce.” [4] The approach is keeping up with the times.
