SuccessCloud Ecosystem Enables Deep, Centralized Insight into Business Execution

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Sept. 10, 2009 – Today SuccessFactors, Inc. (NASDAQ: SFSF) announced SuccessCloud™, the first-of-its-kind Technology Partner Program for its Cloud-based Business Execution Software. SuccessCloud allows third-party applications and data from other business systems to connect and integrate with the SuccessFactors Business Execution Software Suite. This enables businesses to gain meaningful insights into how well the organization is executing against its strategy, and overall business performance.

Current SuccessCloud integrations include IBM Lotus Connections and IBM WebSphere Portal, Ping Identity, GeoLearning and SkillSoft. Additionally, Cast Iron, Conformity, Pervasive Software and SnapLogic are separately announcing development efforts to support SuccessCloud.

“Improving execution is today’s number one business imperative,” said Tom Fisher, SuccessFactors VP of Cloud Computing. “Our SuccessCloud partner program helps bring together securely the SuccessFactors Business Execution Software Suite and partner systems so businesses can very quickly and easily gain access to multi-faceted performance information at every level of the organization enabling unprecedented business insight.”

SuccessCloud is made up of three core components:

• DataConnect – For bi-directional sharing of information between SuccessFactors and other business applications.
• AppConnect – For deeper integration between SuccessFactors and third-party applications via a set of published Web services and APIs.
• BizAnalytics – To deliver preconfigured and configurable reports and dashboards that present joint data from SuccessFactors and other business applications for insight into business execution at all levels within the organization.

"The next era of enterprise software is about collaboration and shared data among many applications," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead with Google Enterprise. "Google and SuccessFactors worked together to make our joint customers more productive through the integration of Google Apps with SuccessFactors' Business Execution Software Suite. Continued momentum around open web APIs reinforces the value of the web as the underlying platform."

“SuccessCloud is an essential part of bridging the strategy and execution gap,” said Tom Fisher, VP Cloud Computing. “For a company to truly successfully execute, executives and managers need complete visibility into how the organization is performing. By sharing our data, we’re freeing our customers to maximize the productivity of every aspect of their business, track up-to-the minute performance from any division, and predict and avoid future roadblocks so they can focus on what’s important to the company.”
