In June 2023, SAP announced the formal transformation timeline from the legacy “Onboarding 1.0” solution to the new SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding solution. With the 2H 2025 Release, Onboarding 1.0 will enter End of Maintenance, with the Depreciation of Onboarding 1.0 planned for the 1H 2026 release.

So what does this mean for our customers? Well, it’s a good thing. Transitioning to the new SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding solution provides our customers with greater value for their onboarding processes – as well as a unified, connected experience across all of HR. Some of the benefits for our customers include simpler administration, lower cost, and better data quality. Additionally, new hire success improves with an enhanced user experience, guided onboarding programs, and early access to relevant people and information before their first day.


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding leverages the HXM suite platform to streamline the configuration, administration, and experiences for your onboarding, cross-boarding, and offboarding needs. The solution is built on the SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and Platform framework, aligning your entire system into a modern architecture with a unified single-platform experience, taking advantage of advanced suite-wide capabilities. SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding offers significantly greater benefits from boosting efficiency and user experience, to simplifying data models and improving reporting capabilities.

Approximately 600 customers are live on the new SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding solution – and they are experiencing benefits of the latest capabilities. Using SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding, Insight Enterprises adopted a 100% digital onboarding experience to empower their new hires with capabilities such as automated workflows and integrated functionality to unify HR processes. With a rapidly expanding workforce across 19 countries, they wanted to find solution that could meet the needs of their organization while driving efficiencies at scale. Yvette Arnold, senior manager for HR systems at Insight Enterprises shared, “We needed to centralize and digitalize our HR processes while harmonizing and integrating workflows. We also needed a solution that would enable us to offer intuitive self-services, while helping us manage regulatory requirements in different countries.” The company benefited from localized compliance features that streamlined efforts to fulfill workforce regulations for different countries, while self-service tasks sped up the onboarding process for new hires.

As part of the unified experience across the SAP SuccessFactors suite, the new solution leverages advanced capabilities such as Business Rules and the Extension Center to meet the unique needs of your business. The innovative and extensive platform allows your organization to quickly integrate third-party solutions and flexibly extend capabilities. The simplified, responsive UI ensures new hires have a familiar interface from pre-day one learning courses, through onboarding tasks, and continued throughout their entire employee journey – boosting productivity and engagement from the start. Guided Onboarding Experiences through SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone empowers new hires with a personalized journey that spans from offer through their first 90 days. Automated tasks and workflows enable hiring managers to be more efficient, while having greater visibility into onboarding programs. Advanced reporting and dashboards provides insights to ensure your hiring managers have a comprehensive view into the status of new hires and enables them to easily manage the entire onboarding process.

SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding provides our customers with a robust solution that focuses on integrating people, processes, and technology to create modern and efficient onboarding journeys. While the depreciation of Onboarding 1.0 won’t be  tomorrow, it’s important to understand the value of the new solution and begin the transformation journey to get the most out of your SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding solution.
