Government Takes HR to the Cloud with SAP SuccessFactors

New Zealand Government Takes HR to the Cloud with SAP SuccessFactors Solutions


1 November 2016 — SAP New Zealand today announced that the New Zealand Government has signed an ICT Common Capability Cloud Human Resources Information System (HRIS) Agreement.

Through the agreement – between SAP and the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) – SAP now supplies a cloud-based HRIS via the SAP SuccessFactors Human Capital Management (HCM) Suite to automate HR processes from hire to retire. DIA, as the lead agency, has signed a Common Capability Agreement (CCA) on behalf of all agencies. Agencies wanting to adopt the HRIS service can take advantage of the work done by DIA and do not need to undergo a full procurement process.

SAP is contracted to provide the HRIS service in the cloud – hosted in Sydney, Australia. Services include core HR, recruiting, on-boarding, performance and goal management, learning management, compensation, succession and development, social collaboration and workforce analytics and planning.

Providing HRIS services via cloud-based solutions aligns with the Government ICT Strategy for ‘cloud first’ technology adoption. Partnering with SAP for the delivery of this service will give the New Zealand Government a number of benefits, including estimated cross government savings of $5 million over a five-year period, and opportunities to simplify processes and reduce duplication of effort to procure solutions, negotiate and administer contracts, as well as ensure contract compliance.

Graeme Riley, Managing Director, SAP New Zealand, added, “With its ‘cloud first’ strategy for technology adoption, the New Zealand Government is not only demonstrating innovation in online-service design and delivery, but is delivering true value to its citizens.”
