The report is Ventana's latest research-based index on technology vendors and products.

SuccessFactors beat out all other industry vendors to earn this highest vendor classification.  


"Compensation Management is a key activity for supporting human capital and talent management and SuccessFactors has demonstrated its customer and product advancements with its rating of Hot in Total Compensation Management," said Mark Smith, CEO & chief research officer, Ventana Research. "SuccessFactors Compensation demonstrated its applications ability to meet the range of requirements for total compensation and has advanced every quarter to support a range of manager, employee and administrator needs with compensation covering base pay, variable pay and calibration to goals and objectives."
