We’ve broken down the major SAP SuccessFactors® H2 2022 updates to help you easily digest the latest changes. In this post, we’ll look at what’s new in Continuous Performance Management.

Replacement of Continuous Performance Management Legacy Version with the Continuous Performance Management Latest Version:

The legacy version of Continuous Performance Management (CPM) will reach End of Maintenance on May 20th, 2022 and be deleted on May 24th, 2024.

The deprecation milestone is when a feature is no longer available for productive use. You should now be using an alternative method for your business scenario.

Deprecation Details:

The legacy version of Continuous Performance Management (CPM) is being retired and replaced with the latest version of CPM.

If you’re still on the legacy version, plan to upgrade to the newest version.

If you don’t act, your company will automatically upgrade to the latest version after retirement.

Caution

Only the latest version of Continuous Performance Management (CPM) is available for new implementations. The latest version of CPM is the only version available for upgrades.

Once upgrading to the latest CPM version, it cannot be undone. You cannot revert to an older version of CPM. Please make sure that you’ve reviewed the feature differences before you upgrade.

If you disable the legacy version of CPM using the Performance Management Feature Settings or Provisioning and then re-enable CPM, the enabled version is the latest, not the legacy version.

With its release in 2H 2020, we introduced the Latest (Reimagined) CPM Experience. This new experience provides users with a redesigned UI and an improved experience related to activities, achievements, and meetings. In addition, we’ve introduced new functionality, including support for users with multiple roles and feedback from multiple stakeholders.
