Human Capital Management

Leading edge companies have transformed human resource (HR) processes into a comprehensive program for human capital management (HCM) that, if leveraged properly, can lead to a significant competitive advantage. A fully realized HCM system aligns the HR function with the business vision; enables flexible HR processes; reduces regulatory costs and compliance efforts; balances global demands and local resources; improves employee satisfaction through use of portals, self-service and e-recruiting; identifies and promotes talent and allows for better decision-making.


Designed for global business, SAP HCM includes functionality that integrates HCM processes across operations, enables an organization to develop cost-effective resource strategies and offers automated reporting and analysis capabilities to assist in identifying specific processes that require operational efficiencies.
The SAP HCM system provides features and functions around these HR functions: Core HR and Payroll, Talent Management, Workforce Planning and Analytics, Time and Attendance Management. SAP can now provide this functionality on-premise or in the Cloud with SAP SuccessFactors.
