As a member of SAP’s Partner Solution Adoption team with Partner Ecosystem Success, I help SAP SuccessFactors partners around the world to expand their offerings with the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP), our innovative platform. This involves running enablement sessions, hackathons, and providing 1:1 coaching to partners on their use cases.
Before joining SAP, I spent 15 years in the SAP partner ecosystem, where I developed several custom HR solutions for customers.
In this blog, I want to put myself in the shoes of an SAP partner’s team that has been asked to extend SAP SuccessFactors with SAP BTP. I’ll share my advice on the steps to take, from ideation to monetization of the solution.
Every solution starts with an idea, usually driven by a customer project. If a customer has raised a requirement that cannot be met with out-of-the-box SAP SuccessFactors modules, you have a few options.
First, check the SAP SuccessFactors roadmap to see if SAP has planned something.
Next, check the SAP Store to see if another partner has published an application for this requirement. In which case, you will discuss directly with the partner how you want to serve the customer
