HR and IT departments face an ongoing communication challenge: HR Information Systems (HRIS) like SuccessFactors need to share data from employee profiles so that IT can create new user accounts, provision them for access to applications, and deactivate employees when they leave the company. As more and more enterprise activity moves to the cloud, and as companies grow in size and complexity, HR and IT need a better, more efficient, and less risky system for managing the employee lifecycle.
- Process inefficiency: Sending data via email, attachments, or file extracts is time-consuming and error prone
- Security weaknesses: Completely deprovisioning users takes two full days, on average, putting enterprise data at risk
- Unproductive employees: Inefficiency leaves employees waiting for apps and updated permissions
