SAP ERP HCM Talent Management enhancement package 5 has a number of new functionalities — which I discuss in detail — that users can leverage to make their implementation easy and more efficient. To kick off my discussion, following are the technical requirements needed to implement SAP ERP HCM Talent Management enhancement package 5.

When users plan SAP ERP HCM Talent Management implementations, two commonly asked questions are: “Is Nakisa required for Talent Management implementation?” and “What functionalities are available in SAP Talent Visualization?”
