Delivering valuable data to SAP SuccessFactors’ HR cloud solutions requires robust, high-performance technologies to deliver large volumes of sensitive data.
Access to SuccessFactors’ Web Services enables the development of interfaces via integration platforms such as Dell Boomi or SAP Cloud Platform Integration. It is also possible to fully develop an interface based on SFAPI and OData technologies.
SuccessFactors Web Services
SuccessFactors Web Services use SFAPI (SOAP) and OData (REST) technologies. Both technologies allow the development of interfaces for connection to different tools such as a payroll system or an active directory. Through the Web Services, all data from SuccessFactors is accessible and can be processed for sending to other APIs.
SAP Cloud Platform Integration
SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI) is a platform for developing interfaces between SAP SuccessFactors and third-party APIs. The use of CPI makes it possible to connect SAP products in a standard way and leaves the possibility of creating custom developments in order to meet the different connection needs with SAP SuccessFactors.
The Integration Center allows you to build, deploy and monitor simple outbound integrations based on flat files. Deploying outgoing integrations can be implemented fairly quickly by using this tool. Predefined templates are available and the system allows creation from start to finish. The integration center allows you to build extracts of personalized files using all the data that is accessible via the catalog of SuccessFactors OData API.
Boomi is an iPaaS (integration platform as a service) from Dell technologies, that instantly connects everyone to everything with its cloud-native, unified, open, and intelligent platform. Boomi is trusted by more than 11,000 customers globally for its speed, ease-of-use, and lower total cost of ownership.
Dell Boomi allows the development of interfaces based on connectors developed in collaboration between SuccessFactors and Dell. These developments take into account the specificities of SuccessFactors but also other APIs such as Active Directory, ADP, SAP payroll, etc. The Dell Boomi SuccessFactors connectors extend the HCM SuccessFactors SFAPI or OData suite to the iPaaS. Boomi allows integrations management via its various control tools.
