  • Platform Services & Tools


Dear SuccessFactors Customer ,

Your team at SuccessFactors is committed to providing you regular updates of our software. Every release is rigorously tested to ensure the best possible quality, a great user experience, and to support your success.

Please note the following changes to the release dates for 1411, the release scheduled for November:

  • 1411 Standard Release Date – Changes from November 21 to December 5 PDT
  • 1411 Premium Release Date – Changes from December 19 to January 9, 2015 PDT

This change impacts the full HCM product suite with the exception of SAP Jam, which will be released as planned on November 20.

Release 1411 includes a significant number of upgrades and new features. Taking into consideration how busy this time of year is for many of our customers, and with an ongoing commitment to causing minimal, if any disruption during a new release, has led us to opt to test 1411 for a short period longer.

For more information on our releases, please visit the Customer Community.

We thank you for your partnership and look forward to providing you the latest and greatest of our software in the next few weeks.

Best regards,

Dmitri Krakovsky                                         Adam Kovalesky
