What are the contributing factors to this phenomenon?

Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. After all, video calls would be expensive and I can’t imagine that we would all have to fix it in our home to make it possible.
But advances in technology have pushed hardware away, and better Internet bandwidth has led to the explosion of software-in-service and simply streaming it over the Internet.
The younger generation is more familiar with mobile devices and how those apps are distributed.
They are expecting a consumer-grade experience. It translates to not reading a 100-page manual to learn to click a button

Why SAP SuccessFactors
SMEs and large enterprises are snapping up HR Tech to enable their digital transformation.
For the latter, many of them will gravitate towards tried and proven solutions like SAP SuccessFactors.
Founded by Lars Dalgard in 2001, the public listed company had 12,000 subscribers, and by January 2022 had 191 million users in more than 200 countries.
The demand for SuccessFactors consultants has skyrocketed because more companies are embarking on their HR digitization journey with the help of SAP SuccessFactors.
And it will continue to grow. This is why this is the best time to consider a career in SAP SuccessFactors.
And here are five more.
1. Gain global experience
COVID19 has made business travel impossible, creating a variety of unexpected opportunities.
Customers have become accustomed to remote implementation and support. And since this is going to be remote, there is no reason for the seller to be from the same country.
Rolling Array’s SAP SuccessFactor consultants have worked with companies in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Australia, Dubai and many more.
It provides more opportunities to choose a consultant who is not open. Still, it allows for a new business culture that will add value to the resume and portfolio.
2. Upward mobility is good
For SAP SuccessFactors Consultants, there are two distinct career paths to choose from. In terms of consulting, you can go from Associate Consultant to Lead Consultant and later to Practice Leader.
The second route will be to the Project Management Office (PMO), which starts with a project coordinator and then progresses through the project manager and finally the project director.
3. Salary is good
An entry-level SAP SuccessFactors Associate Consultant will earn $ 3,000 to $ 4,000 per month at the beginning of their career.
For someone with more than 12 years of SuccessFactors skills, the salary can range from $ 15,000 to $ 20,000 per month.
4. Super high demand
With more firms implementing their HR digital transformation with SAP SuccessFactors, there is a significant shortage of SAP SuccessFactor Consultants to meet the current demand in the market.
Moreover, it would take a long time to train someone from the ground up. As a result, SAP exceeds the supply of SuccessFactors Consultants requirements, resulting in a significant demand for these professionals in the market.
5. Work on new exciting projects
In the SAP SuccessFactors vendor community, you can expect to be involved in a variety of projects that are challenging and enjoyable to work with.
No two days will be the same.
Rolling Array serves a wide variety of clients, including hospitals, banks, schools and the energy business.
Since projects may originate from different countries, similar projects will feel different due to cultural differences.
