Engage, Empower and Collaborate with Employees using SAP Cloud Platform Portal

Provide employees with a platform for collaboration, engagement, and innovation to put them in the center of what’s happening in their company


Companies are embracing digital transformation and are looking for better ways to foster employee engagement. In today’s digital age, a key part of fulfilling the needs of your workforce is to provide a platform that will enable them to connect and collaborate with peers and use self-service applications to complete their tasks. Hence, there is a significant focus within every organization to provide an effective Employee Portal which is intuitive, mobile friendly, and at the same time motivates and enhances productivity.

The SAP Employee Portal offers customers the opportunity to digitalize their HR processes and enable their employees to easily adopt a self-service experience – this can be achieved by leveraging prepackaged content and services in the cloud while keeping business data on-premise. Employees can easily access all HR functions from a single entry point in the cloud regardless of location or time - thus saving time and increasing efficiency.

The solution diagram above illustrates a combined architectural view of the runtime and design-time environments for implementing SAP Cloud Platform Portal with an on-premise SAP Business Suite system or SAP SuccessFactors system.
