Key Concept

SAP has approximately 9,000 active on-premise Payroll customers today. In 2012, it was announced that support for on-premise SAP HCM would be guaranteed through calendar year end 2025.

The goal of SAP SuccessFactors is to transform its on-premise SAP HCM and Payroll customers to cloud-based solutions leveraging not only the software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform but also the latest technology available. While the option for core HCM is obvious (Employee Central), the options for payroll can be a bit less clear. I introduce the four main options available today for existing on-premise SAP Payroll customers.
