SAP Software and Solutions Lead IDC, Gartner Industry Reports


IDC and Gartner, two of the world’s most respected research firms, have recently recognized the German tech giant for its efforts to provide enterprises with mission-critical SAP software and solutions.

SAP’s recent inclusion as a Leader in both the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Holistic Supply Chain Planning 2022 Vendor Assessment and the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for 1,000+ Employee Enterprises further cements its position as an industry leader in technology. This recognition is a testament to SAP’s commitment to providing innovative, reliable, and user-friendly products that help organizations streamline their supply chains and improve their human resources (HR) operations. With its market-leading position now firmly established, the enterprise software multinational is poised to continue setting the standard for excellence in supply chain planning and HR management.

Recognizing SAP Digital Supply Chain Software and Solutions

IDC Manufacturing Insights Program Vice President Simon Ellis explained that supply chain complexities, including increased diversity in outsourcing, have significantly exacerbated the challenges of supply planning. With increased forecasting inaccuracy and less information about supply prospects and restrictions, a reliable supply planning solution is crucial to the entire supply chain’s performance. This is why SAP’s cloud-native technologies and industry-leading SAP Integrated Business Planning for Supply Chain (SAP IBP for Supply Chain) solution have been deployed by over 1,200 clients across the world, allowing the German company to maintain its status as a leader in innovation.

As an integral part of SAP’s Digital Supply Chain offering, SAP IBP for Supply Chain enables businesses to build supply chains that are adaptive, flexible, and always evolving. In addition, the portfolio seeks to integrate strategic and operational supply chain decisions into a single solution and to consume real-time data from both internal and external sources to improve supply chain visibility.

Moreover, the portfolio comprising of SAP software and solutions is designed to do the following:

  • Integrate SAP Business Network to digitally link suppliers to the overall strategy
  • Facilitate decision-making in company that is based on current events and can be implemented immediately
  • Add artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to the decision-making processes to make better, more informed choices
  • With the help of a streamlined and user-friendly interface, enterprises can confidently implement decisions about supply chain planning.

Noting that SAP has worked with businesses in virtually every sector, Ellis said that the company’s work with consumer goods companies, retailers, tech firms, automakers and manufacturers, healthcare providers, and wholesalers stands out. He concluded:

“Supply chains looking for a comprehensive supply chain planning offering that provides a seamless, user-friendly planning platform with embedded analytics that is tightly integrated to manufacturing, operational planning, and supply chain execution should consider SAP.”

Acknowledging the Capabilities of SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Continuing its unbroken streak, SAP has also been positioned as a Leader in the “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for 1,000+ Employee Enterprises” for the seventh year in a row. SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management (HXM) Suite has been deemed trusted by over 9,400 clients across the world — ranging from medium-sized enterprises to multinational corporations with more than 100,000 workers — to improve their people function and propel company-wide transformation. These customers are able to genuinely place employees at the core of their organizations by integrating their people processes with SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP Fieldglass solutions, and the rest of the SAP portfolio.

In a blog post published last September, global HR industry influencer Josh Bersin shared:

“SAP SuccessFactors Opportunity Marketplace is integrated into the SAP SuccessFactors stack, making talent marketplace an integrated part of HCM. SAP is going further. While the talent marketplace is often seen as a ‘product’ or set of features, it really is much more. It’s a new, modern way of thinking about pay, jobs, roles, and growth.”

The SAP SuccessFactors Opportunity Marketplace utilizes ML technologies to improve upskilling, retention, and employee engagement. With this, businesses may better equip their staff with the knowledge and abilities required to meet future needs, and keep their workers interested and enthusiastic about their work.

Announced at the last SuccessConnect virtual conference, SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite’s latest updates strive to provide organizations a more complete picture of their employees’ skill sets by leveraging data, ML, and AI capabilities. Organizations can benefit greatly from these cutting-edge solutions in terms of personnel management and growth by gaining deeper insights about their staff.
