SAP ERP – Talent Management

Integrated talent management processes can help you quickly find the best people for your business, effectively develop and leverage their talent, align their efforts with your corporate objectives, and retain your top performers.

SAP ERP HCM offers talent management functionality that is fully integrated with other HCM and business processes to help you more effectively manage your talent. This cross-process integration provides you with a single view of your talent worldwide, while enabling all talent-related practices to speak a common language. Cross-process integration also ensures data integrity that minimizes your integration costs – and increases stability and simplicity of your talent management software.

Robust talent management analytics can greatly improve your business planning and decision making. Managers gain the insight to identify talent gaps and predict shortfalls based on anticipated business changes. By measuring and analyzing HR programs such as those for succession and learning, you receive valuable data that lets you refine your talent management strategies and plan for the future.
