SuccessFactors Reveals New Australian Data Centre Expansion

Sydney, Australia – 23 May, 2012 – SuccessFactors, an SAP company and global leader in business execution software, has today announced the opening of its new data centre in Australia as part of its commitment to the market and the Asia Pacific region. Located in Sydney, the data centre will service the booming Australian market and allow SuccessFactors to target growing cloud solution opportunities in the region.

The facility is a Federal government panel certified facility and ISO 27001 certified, adhering to government security standards while offering next-generation technical infrastructure to deliver 24/7 centre coverage and security to its customers. The centre also has a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Rating from the US Green Building Council.

The Sydney data centre will host the full SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) suite, including Jam, Workforce Planning, Workforce Analytics, Performance & Goals, Employee Central, Recruiting Management, Succession & Development, Compensation Management and Learning Management, which will all be delivered locally in the Australian cloud to clients throughout the Asia Pacific region – the fastest growing region for SuccessFactors globally. With demand for cloud-based solutions growing quickly, SuccessFactors is keen to fully expand into the market and maximise its local presence.

"The new data centre opening comes at a perfect time as it is designed to meet the rapidly growing hosting demands of the Australian government and local businesses customers," said Murray Sargant, SuccessFactors vice president, Asia Pacific. "We have a very strong presence in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane, so many of our customers will find it helpful to have access to a data centre which offers premium support and optimal reliability in the country. We are committed to advancing Australia as a cloud computing hub for the region and we are very excited about the growth potential the data centre will bring to the APAC market."

The data centre expansion follows the company's purchase of Australia-based business analytics company Infohrm Pty Ltd in 2010.
