Key Concept
The SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting solution (formerly SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Execution) includes Recruitment Marketing (RMK) and Recruitment Management (RCM). Together with Onboarding (ONB), the solutions offer organizations the ability to efficiently identify and attract the best candidates.

In this chapter, I will cover some external points of integration between the Recruiting Execution Suite (REC) and third-party applications. These integrations don’t require a middleware or a big implementation. They usually can be achieved by adding a small piece of code to the existing XML code or enabling a switch in Provisioning or Admin Center.

There are several built-in, external points of integration with Recruitment Management (commonly referred to as RCM) and Recruiting Marketing (commonly referred to as RMK). These integrations are between REC and third-party vendors. (Note that I am using the term point of integration because REC integrates with one or minimal aspects of the external system. REC doesn’t integrate with every functionality of the external vendor.)
