It only seems like yesterday that I was busy re-working the original SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central book for a brand new second edition, but in reality it was over 4 years ago. Today marks the release of the third edition of the SAP PRESS Book SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: The Comprehensive Guide, which features new, revised, and updated content covering topics such as Employee Central features, implementation, data migration, integration, extensibility, and further resources.

For this edition, Brandon Toombs joined Rebecca Murray and myself on the author team. Brandon brings years of experience implementing Employee Central for a variety of clients and is considered an expert in Employee Central.
