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,

"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."
