SAP Talent Visualization by Nakisa creates graphical representations of real-time HCM data. See how to use its OrgChart, Org Modeler, and SuccessionPlanning components to help manage your talent pool.
Key Concept

The SAP Talent Visualization by Nakisa OrgChart module interfaces directly with SAP ERP HCM data to provide dynamic org charting capabilities. OrgChart does not have its own database. Instead, it pulls the data required to display the enterprise org chart directly from SAP ERP HCM data.

OrgModeler helps managers and the HR generalists visualize the enterprise reorganization scenarios and any merger and acquisition activities. You can model the scenarios in real-time using SAP ERP HCM data.

SuccessionPlanning assists managers and HR generalists to envision the talent available in the enterprise; drill down to gather further details about a particular talent; identify key positions, key people, and bench strength; and execute the succession plan.

Visual depiction of HCM data helps employees and managers understand the enterprise structure, personnel structure, key positions, and talent available in an enterprise. SAP Talent Visualization by Nakisa (SAP Talent Visualization) provides the tools to represent your SAP ERP HCM data graphically. The four components are HCM Dashboard, Directory, FloorPlan, and SAPExtractor. HR generalists use them to graphically represent SAP ERP HCM data, to build “what-if” scenarios, such as reorganizations or merging of organizations, to do succession planning for key positions and key people in the organization, and to develop reports that display the costs of the “what-if” scenarios.
