This summer, we challenged our partner ecosystem to build compelling solutions to help customers change work for good with SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone. Our partners rose to the challenge and flexed their innovative muscles, leveraging the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) to showcase their creativity in the SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone Innovation Challenge.

Why is this important

As we all know, the world of work has changed and successful businesses will be the ones that truly listen to the needs of their people, whether they are working from the office, remote, or deskless. SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone is SAP’s unified entry point to provide employees with an intuitive, personalized digital workplace experience that empowers them to be productive from anywhere. SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone also opens the door to innovation, allowing the integration of third-party solutions into the platform to surface data to employers and employees efficiently. However, you can’t talk about innovation without talking about our partners who are constantly building and adapting solutions to help maximize customers’ investment in SAP technology.

We designed the Innovation Challenge as a fun way to harness the power of the partner ecosystem and show how our partners creatively integrate and extend the award-winning SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone product to help customers solve the needs and challenges of an ever-evolving work landscape.

We encouraged our partners to hone their development skills and construct solutions that address real challenges customers face using the SAP Business Technology Platform.

The event

We gave our partners nine weeks to develop and submit their solutions, with guidance and support from various teams within SAP, including the HXM Strategic Alliances, SAP product, and SAP BTP.

In the end, we will select five regional winners as well as one overall global winner based on the following criteria:

  • Human Experience Impact: Impact of use to HR and business (is the use case relevant for a market segment/industry, special persona like the store manager of deskless worker)

  • Creativity and Innovation: Ability to showcase the capability of SAP SuccessFactors Work Zone for the user persona, including overall design and analysis of the experience a user will have on the end to end user journey, including design
