A multinational company has some some needs to harmonize it's processes. A cloud solution as provided by Successfactors or Workday is a fast starting point to have a global HR system available.
The key point in bringing in a cloud based software solution is that only best practice processes can be implemented. In some areas the limited customization of the cloud products restricts the company to best in class processes and is preventing the branches to implement exotic solutions. To help in finding the best way forward a certified consultant, like myself, is of big help.
