We Did It Again: SAP ® SuccessFactors ® Solutions Named a Leader in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites

SAP NEWSBYTE — March 7, 2017 — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has positioned SAP ® SuccessFactors ® solutions in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites1 report for the fourth consecutive time. Positioning on the Magic Quadrant (MQ) is determined by Gartner’s ratings on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. SAP SuccessFactors solutions have been positioned as leaders in talent management since the report’s inception in 2013.

“We believe what Gartner focuses on in the talent management suite MQ are the assurances clients across the globe rely on, which drive momentum for the leaders who can address what businesses are looking for today,” said Mike Ettling, president of SAP SuccessFactors.2 “There’s value in addressing both vision and execution because when you buy in the cloud, you are banking on ongoing innovation along with hard benefits today. Talent management addresses the entire employee experience, from before they join your team to when they leave and beyond. That’s why we’ve invested in suite breadth and depth — being both a mile wide and a mile deep. We believe being named a leader validates our approach to our clients’ success.”

Heather Kinyon, HRIS analyst at BNSF Logistics, said: “Ensuring high performance and efficiency is vital to our business, and instilling these same values into our overall HR process is equally critical. We know our people have to come first in order to consistently exceed our customers’ expectations of us as an industry-leading transportation intermediary.
