Integration of SAP ERP HCM Qualifications with SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) curriculum can be successfully implemented using the integration add-on for the SAP ERP HCM and SuccessFactors HCM suite (talent-hybrid software component). The Integration Add-On 3.0 for SuccessFactors HCM Suite and SAP ERP HCM Support Package 00 is a key element that needs to be installed with the standard solution for the SAP ERP HCM talent-hybrid deployment model.
