Are you looking for a way to extend and customize your HR processes to meet your organization's requirements?

As organizations seek to optimize their HR processes, there is an increasing need for customized workflows that can handle complex logic and provide a higher level of UI customization. While SAP SuccessFactors provides a range of out-of-the-box workflow capabilities, sometimes you might need more flexibility. That's where SAP Build comes in, SAP Build can be used to create custom workflows and applications that are tailored to your organization's unique requirements.

In this blog post, I'll walk you through an example of a custom application built with SAP Build Apps that pulls employee data from SAP SuccessFactors, and on submit it triggers a workflow on SAP Build Process Automation. The goal is to help you gain a better understanding of the integration and extension capabilities of SAP BTP and SAP SuccessFactors, and provide you with actionable insights for your own projects.


In the upcoming demo video, you'll see a custom HR application built with SAP Build Apps and SAP Build Process Automation, integrated with SAP SuccessFactors. The application pulls employee data from SuccessFactors (the API is filter to only show the employees located in Madrid), triggers a workflow using Build Process Automation, resulting in an email notification.


While this use case is just an example, it demonstrates the integration and extensibility capabilities of SAP SuccessFactors & SAP Build. I hope it has shown you how SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and SAP SuccessFactors can be used together to extend and enhance your HR processes. If you're looking for a powerful, scalable solution for custom HR applications that integrate seamlessly with SAP SuccessFactors, I encourage you to explore the many features and capabilities of SAP BTP.
