Learn how to extract and transfer employee data from SAP ERP HCM to the SuccessFactors HCM Suite to perform the variable pay process as a part of the Integration Add-On 3.0 for SuccessFactors HCM Suite and SAP ERP HCM. The integration scenarios explored use SAP Process Integration as middleware. Once integrated, users are able to automatically extract and transfer the required employee data to perform the variable pay planning process in the SuccessFactors system securely, without having to manually upload data in a way that might compromise its confidentiality.

Key Concept

Extracting and transferring data from SAP ERP HCM to the SuccessFactors HCM Suite to perform the variable process can be successfully implemented using Integration Add-On 3.0 for the SuccessFactors HCM Suite and SAP ERP HCM. Integration Add-On 3.0 for SAP ERP HCM and the SuccessFactors HCM Suite is a software component that is installed on SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) 6.0 software version. This software contains the functionality to integrate SAP ERP HCM solutions with the SuccessFactors HCM Suite. Add-On 3.0 is a key element that needs to be installed to realize standard solutions for the SAP ERP HCM talent-hybrid deployment model.

Integration Add-On 3.0 for SAP ERP HCM and the SuccessFactors HCM Suite is a key element that needs to be installed with the standard solution for the SAP ERP HCM talent-hybrid deployment model. In this model, the core HR solutions, such as Personnel Administration (PA), Organizational Management, Payroll, and Time Management are implemented using SAP ERP HCM, and the HR talent management solutions such as recruiting, learning solution, compensation management and performance management are implemented using the SuccessFactors HCM Suite.

In this article, I focus on the integration scenarios delivered in Integration Add-On 3.0, Support Package 1 (employee data extraction and transfer from SAP ERP HCM to the SuccessFactors HCM Suite to perform variable pay planning in SuccessFactors). This is a consistent and secure way of moving employee data (e.g., the employee history data file) into the SuccessFactors HCM Suite.

Note
In my previous, related HR Expert articles, I discuss other SuccessFactors/SAP ERP HCM integration scenarios and techniques. In my “Sync Qualifications from SAP ERP HCM and SuccessFactors HCM with Integration Add-On 3.0,” article I discuss the integration of the Competency Library and employee profiles in SuccessFactors HCM Suite with the Qualification Catalog and employee profile (qualifications) with SAP ERP HCM, respectively. And in “How Add-On 3.0 Integrates SAP ERP HCM and SuccessFactors HCM Curricula,” I discuss the specific details of integrating the curriculum and employee’s curriculum status in SuccessFactors LMS with qualifications and the employee profile (qualifications) in SAP ERP HCM, respectively.

Following are the detailed steps for achieving the data extraction and transfer of SAP ERP HCM employee data to the SuccessFactors HCM Suite to perform variable pay planning.
