A Blog by Sophie Sheppard, Comms and Engagement Lead, Upgrade2Success, SAP SuccessFactors

What is Upgrade2Success?

Upgrade2Success is the program created by SuccessFactors especially for our SAP On-Premise HCM customers to assist you as you consider, plan for and ultimately make your move to the Cloud.  We have assembled all of our best tools, templates and global expertise to demystify the process of Digital Transformation and ensure that you are equipped and empowered to make the right decisions for your organisation. Ultimately, our aim is to make your migration easier! We have an online Resource Centre where you can find out more but the very best way to discover what’s available is by attending one of our Upgrade2Success Summits in person.

Our Sponsors ADP and a Special Focus on Payroll

We are very proud to be co-hosting this Summit with our Sponsors ADP who bring a huge wealth of experience and expertise in Outsourced Cloud Payroll to the table. Malcolm Grice, DVP/GM of GlobalView HCM Operations at ADP explains;
Many businesses tell us they’re anxious about the loss of direct control that accompanies the move from in-house payroll management to cloud outsourcing and worry about relinquishing the level of company-specific customizations they’ve been used to manually coding into their systems for years.

Ensuring that your employees around the world get paid on time, and in compliance with thousands of changing regulatory requirements, union policies and payroll cycles, leaves your IT teams labouring with the workload of endless hardware and software upgrades.

Your HR team can feel frustrated with internal payroll processes that have failed to keep pace with technological innovation across the rest of your business, denying them the chance to deliver strategic advice that could help drive meaningful business success.

And what about your employees themselves? More and more, they expect a consumer-grade experience from their employers – something that should be a priority as you consider transitioning to the cloud. If any of the above strikes a chord with you then please do join us in Singapore to discuss further, we’re here to help!

We ensure that on the day you receive the information that you need pertaining to payroll options from both ADP and SuccessFactors to make an informed decision that’s right for you.

The Customer Case Study – Cargill - the most popular session on the day by far

We always ask for feedback and customer views of our Summits and, without fail, the favourite session, as voted for by your peers, is always the Customer Case Study.  We know that there is huge value in hearing directly from professionals and organisations who have already been through their own HCM journey to the Cloud and we ensure that you get the candid view – lessons learned, what results they’ve seen, what they would have done differently etc and we ensure plenty of opportunity for Q&A.

I am delighted to let you know that the Customer Case Study being delivered live in Singapore will be that of Cargill. For those of you unfamiliar with this brand they are a provider of food, agriculture, financial and industrial products with 155,000 Employees across 70 Countries.

Steve Drury, Pay Service Lead at Cargill looks forward to meeting you and passes on the following message:

If your company is getting ready to embark on a significant HR Transformation, which includes your HR and Payroll Systems, you will be interested in this session being presented by me in Singapore on behalf of Cargill. 

When the global project to replace our legacy HR systems ran into difficulties in APAC, way back in 2012, it was necessary for us to rethink our approach.  By 2014, it was clear that Employee and Manager self-service would be a huge enabler for our upcoming global HR Transformation. 

In this session, you will learn how Cargill detailed the complexity of its Employee Data Management practices around the world; how Cargill’s Employee Data Management has been standardised;  the Employee Data Management challenges facing Cargill and how we overcame these challenges.  Finally, the session will cover the learning outcomes from our multi-year experience.

Steve Drury


In Summary

This Summit really is an unmissable event for any and all SAP On-Premise HCM customers in region as well as a great opportunity to network with your peers and get valuable face-to-face time with our experts.

It is entirely complimentary for SAP On-Premise and Hybrid Customers (those who may have some SuccessFactors Modules but are yet to move your core HR to the cloud).

We recommend sending a maximum of 3 individuals from any one organisation, it is best practice to send people from both the HR and the IT Teams and the session is specifically designed for Heads of HRIS or HR and IT Business Leaders.
