SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.,  March 18, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- SuccessFactors, an
 SAP AG  (NYSE: SAP) company and the global leader in business execution (BizX)
software, today announced it has been positioned as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in
the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites (TMS) across talent,
compensation, recruiting and learning.


"For more than a decade, SuccessFactors has created and led this space," said 
Lars Dalgaard, founder and CEO of SuccessFactors and member of the Executive
Board of SAP AG. "In the final analysis of collapsing at least four industries
into one, we have clearly won in terms of total growth, customer experience and
third-party endorsement. Our merge with SAP and the addition of 3,000 mainly
engineers and people with intellectual property relevant to our customers in the
cloud - allowing SAP to have 700 people specialized in core HRIS - meant that by
the end of 2012, we also had the strongest, most global and comprehensive cloud
system of record. This has been proven by the many large, global companies that
are signing up on Employee Central; recently with the biggest core-HRIS cloud
deal ever done with 300,000 users. Most importantly to me, our cloud solutions
are the most beautiful and the easiest to use, and appear delicious! Most
people's first reaction is 'wow' and this is just the beginning. We will
continue to invest more aggressively in delighting our customers and leading in
this field."  

Gartner defines leaders in this Magic Quadrant as companies that "demonstrate a
market-defining vision of how talent management technology can help HR leaders
achieve business objectives. Leaders have the ability to execute against that
vision through products, services and demonstrated, solid business results in
the form of revenue and earnings. In talent management suites, Leaders show a
consistent ability to win broad suite deals. They have significant successful
customer deployments in  North America, EMEA and the  Asia/Pacific  region in a
wide variety of vertical industries, with multiple proof points. Leaders are
often what other providers in the market measure themselves against."

"The speed of implementation, ease of use and cost savings associated with the
SuccessFactors' solution have made all the difference to the experience and, in
the long-term, to our ability to perform as a global company," said  Phillippe
Ferrie, worldwide employee relations coordinator and HRIS director, Vallourec.

"We believe being recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for
Talent Management Suites is a reflection of the innovation and value we've
brought to over 3,500 customers in 168 countries," said  Shawn Price, president,
People and Money, SAP Cloud. "Customers recognize that their people are their
greatest asset and we will continue to strive to create the most beautiful, most
exciting and data rich products in the industry to meet the end-to-end talent
management lifecycle from recruit to retire."
