Welcome, once again to the Zalaris series of blog posts on the SAP SuccessFactors Q4 release. Over the coming week we’ll be publishing articles covering the full SAP SuccessFactors Cloud HCM suite of applications.
Thanks to all of you who have been reading, sharing and providing feedback on our content, which if you missed our previously quarter’s blogs you can find them on zalaris.co.uk. For this Q4 2018 release, we’ve continued the approach we started last quarter; so you’ll see a set of blog posts on our website linking to multiple articles. As before if you are a customer or have joined our mailing list (sign up here), then you’ll receive a consolidated eBook of all the articles.
This release contains a high proportion (54%) of Universal changes. From a functional area perspective, there are the typical large number of changes in Employee Central, Platform and Recruiting and an unusually small number of changes related to Learning. As you’d expect, given it is still the year of GDPR, there are several changes enhancing the data protection and privacy features in SAP SuccessFactors.
Preview instances of SuccessFactors were updated on 2nd November 2018, and the production instances are being updated on 30th November 2018.
