As you know, SAP SuccessFactors has quarterly releases that happen four times a year. That will change. Starting in mid-2020, SuccessFactors releases will occur twice per year. This release frequency won’t slow the amount of innovation you’ve come to expect, rather it will provide your company with more time to understand, test and adopt opt-in features.
Here are a few key highlights:
- 2020 Release Dates – Targeted Production Release dates are May 15, 2020, and November 20, 2020, with Preview Releases occurring about four weeks prior.
- Affected Products – All products previously on a quarterly cadence will follow the twice a year release schedule.
- Unaffected Products – SAP SuccessFactors Mobile and Recruiting Posting’s monthly release schedule will continue.
A good thing to note: non-disruptive, business-critical or compliance-related fixes will continue to occur within regularly scheduled weekly maintenance windows. So, what does this mean for you? More time to review the new features and updates to understand how it will fit within your organization.
SAP SuccessFactors will host a 2020 Release Strategy session to explain the changes, answer questions, and provide additional insight into their release strategy going forward. Click here to find our more.
