Oracle Cloud HCM vs. SAP SuccessFactors

Oracle provides the most complete and unified cloud HCM solution, while seamlessly connecting with finance, supply chain, and all areas of your enterprise to help you run your business.

Business advantages

Oracle Cloud HCM SAP SuccessFactors Why Oracle Cloud HCM? Why not SAP SuccessFactors?

Broadest, most unified Human Capital Management

Core HR

available
available
Plan, manage, and optimize global people processes with one common data source. Make better decisions, personalize employee experiences, and leverage highly configurable workflows that offer scalability and localization. SAP provides similar functionality; however, the underlying experience is built on multiple acquired technologies and data structures causing a disparate and disjointed experience.

Benefits

available
incomplete
A global, rules-based application, allows you to evolve and adapt your programs to the unique needs of your workforce. SAP offers basic native benefits functionality but relies on third-party vendors for advanced capabilities.

HR Help Desk

available
incomplete
Provide quick and consistent responses to employees' HR-related inquiries. Employees get access to a comprehensive, automated case management system which makes it easy to scale service delivery and protect employee privacy. SAP cannot field inquiries via multiple channels such as a native digital assistant, SMS, and social platforms—hindering adoption and productivity.

Talent Management

available
Inferior Functionality
Provide a smart, personalized, unified experience for employees, managers, and leaders. SAP offers a talent management suite; however, customers have complained that it requires extensive configuration to properly set up adding extra time, costs and overhead.

Learning

available
Inferior Functionality
Upskill and reskill employees to compete successfully in a dynamic, competitive market. Employees get personalized learning recommendations and social learning tools to learn whenever and wherever they wish. SAP offers an acquired solution which sits outside the core HR product and requires additional set up and integration.

Recruiting

available
incomplete
Improve and accelerate hiring inside and outside of your organization. Hiring teams get native support for AI-powered recommendations, self-scheduled interviews, data-driven offers, and high-volume recruiting. SAP does not offer these advanced features and relies on third-party tools for high-volume recruiting support.

Payroll

available
Inferior Functionality
Support requirements across organizations, workers, and industries. Enable efficient, compliant, and configurable payroll across the globe—and leverage predefined integrations with your payroll providers, reducing complexity and cost. SAP does not offer a true, native cloud payroll solution – just its old on-premise payroll software hosted on a cloud instance.

Workforce Management

available
incomplete
Link time, labor, and leave management data in a fully integrated solution with payroll, financial, and personnel data. Align business strategy, reduce compliance risk, and deploy workers with greater control. SAP’s solution has been noted by third-party analysts to have shortcomings in scheduling, forecasting, activity management, and advanced time and labor functionality, such as non-standard worker classifications and shift types.

Strategic Workforce Planning

available
incomplete
Rapidly execute business strategy. With native integration across HCM and ERP, managers get a real-time view of workforce capabilities, budgets, and skill gaps. SAP’s solution does not natively integrate with ERP data, providing limited visibility.

Health and Safety

available
incomplete
Manage environmental health and safety incidents. Employees can easily log incidents and risks, while automating follow-up actions and compliance reporting—helping to improve the overall safety of the workforce. SAP does not have a health and safety offering in its HR suite; customers can only get access by acquiring and integrating its ERP platform.

Work Life (Volunteering, Activity Gamification)

available
not available
Help your employees manage the intersection of their work and personal lives. Connect them with volunteering opportunities, wellness activities, and insights to manage their personal brand. SAP no longer offers a work life solution.

AI-Driven Risk Management and Monitoring

available
incomplete
Automate advanced security and privacy monitoring. AI-driven analyses and exception workflows help satisfy data privacy regulations (e.g. GDPR), limit insider threats (e.g. payroll fraud), and simplify audit and compliance.. SAP does not offer automated data analyses nor AI-driven risk management.

All-In-One Solution

available
not available
Access one unified solution across every HR process, delivering a consistent experience, workflow automation and efficiency, and real-time insights from a single data source. SAP relies on acquired technologies that are stitched together, resulting in separate data sources, reporting challenges, and integration headaches.

Personalized and Consistent Experience

Mobile Responsive and Consistent

available
incomplete
Provide a consistent, mobile-responsive experience from any device-no apps required. SAP requires the installation, configuration, and management of separate iPhone and Android applications (which are not consistent across the devices).

Conversational User Experience

available
incomplete
Empower employees with familiar technologies that help them to do their best work. Engaging with the system is as easy as a natural conversation, through a voice-based UI and a digital assistant to get quick answers and execute processes from any device. SAP does not yet support a native voice channel in their CoPilot digital assistant, which is integrated with enterprise applications. SAP enables voice features in other products via additional (acquired) digital assistant technologies, but those are not integrated into their business applications.

Configurable and Extensible Solution

available
incomplete
Empower HR to tailor workflows with consumer-simple configuration options such as fields, smart defaults, and automation—improving scalability while reducing reliance on IT. SAP solutions may require extensive integration costs such as middleware, and third-party consultants.

Personalization via Machine Learning

available
incomplete
Make once-complex transactions simple and intuitive with guided step-by-step workflows. The experience is also personalized, supporting each user with relevant content, insights, and actions to drive productivity. SAP’s HR solutions only have machine learning (ML) capabilities in their learning products. There are ML capabilities in the Leonardo platform and CAI digital assistant; however, these are not native on their enterprise applications such as SuccessFactors.
 

Most complete and unified cloud suite

available
incomplete
Leverage the most complete cloud suite across the enterprise, across HR, finance, supply chain, manufacturing, and sales. Gain greater visibility, cross-functional process automation, and a unified experience-without added integration. SAP maintains native and 3rd party infrastructure (such as Microsoft Azure) for its many technology solutions and does not offer a next-generation cloud infrastructure.

Next-gen cloud infrastructure

available
incomplete
Deliver high-performance computing power with next-generation Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to run cloud native and enterprise-level IT workloads. Provide real-time elasticity for enterprise applications by combining autonomous services, integrated security, and serverless compute. SAP maintains native and 3rd party infrastructure (such as Microsoft Azure) for its many technology solutions and does not offer a next-generation cloud infrastructure.

Multiple next-gen technologies

available
incomplete
Access next-gen applications such as AI applications, machine learning, a digital assistant, internet of things (IoT), blockchain, data cloud and enterprise data management to help your business adapt and evolve. SAP requires the adoption of the SAP Cloud Platform for machine learning applications, blockchain and IoT Connected workers.

R&D Investment over $6B annually

available
incomplete
Benefit from thousands of new capabilities each quarter, with more than 80% of these driven by customer feedback. We infuse AI, a digital assistant, and more into our solutions to make your workflows smarter. You have our commitment to relentlessly innovate on your behalf. SAP does not invest in innovation at this level.
