SpinifexIT’s latest solutions, Easy Migration and Easy Go Live, help organizations moving to Employee Central Payroll (ECP) streamline their end-to-end process.

Migrating to SAP’s SuccessFactors ECP or S/4 HANA environments is becoming a top priority for organizations wanting to modernise and move their HR and payroll systems and application provision to the cloud or future supported platforms.

Better enabling employees and HCM and payroll processes with SAP’s cloud or S4/HANA solutions is a future-proofed outcome that SpinifexIT supports with our latest project implementation automation solutions.

Transitioning a working payroll system to a new technology delivery is not without some risk. SpinifexIT makes it easier for our customers to get the best outcomes from the new SAP payroll application instance (Cloud or S4/HANA).

Using our extensive SAP Payroll Application Development experience, we have now released two new solutions. These significantly de-risk and enable the payroll process modernization for our customers and implementation partners alike.

Meet our two new solutions for your payroll business transformation

Easy Migration logo

Who is it for: Existing SAP Payroll customers

Easy Migration is a solution that empowers your chosen implementation partner to rapidly transfer and transform the proven and working configuration from on-premise (Legacy) payroll to the new ECP/S4HANA platform.

Easy Migration enables the rapid setup and accurate transfer of your payroll configuration and payroll data. This is along with a matching employee testing dataset via automation to the new SAP payroll application, resulting in a working payroll in the environment for project testing and validation.

The automation provided by Easy Migration leads to confident outcomes.

Implementation Partners can take a working on-premise payroll configuration and get it up and running in ECP or S4/HANA within days through Easy Migration’s automations.

Copy existing employee and payroll data to a new test system, in preparation for the full migration without manual exports.

Cloning and scrambling options are built in to ensure secure payroll testing activities before your ECP go-live.

Our implementation partners are provided the Easy Migration software as part of being a validated partner (so no cost to the end customer).

It features post-go-live Employee Analysis tools to ensure your key users and project implementation team can be running the right payrolls before the final cut-over to a confident first payroll run.

This implementation enabler also allows full tracking and resolution of each pay run comparison and drill down reporting to help discover where things need correcting.

Easy Go Live provides invaluable aid to help you sign-off on the new system implementation with better confidence.

SAP Customers can use Easy Go Live’s Master Data generation tools to provide to their Implementation Partner so they can load SAP Employee Master Data into SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central.

Test Employee Dataset Generation and copying for existing onPrem Legacy system customers to either ECP or S4/HANA new environments including the load of date delimited historical data* to the new environment.

Enabling full tracking and resolution of parallel run results and resolutions per run during the implementation project.

SAP payroll customers’​ top strategy is to keep “a single point of truth”​ 626 272 SpinifexIT

In a recent SAPInsider survey focusing on Payroll and its impact on Cloud HR, it was identified that 79% of responses saw that the top strategy for payroll customers was to ensure that their payroll solution was the single point of truth.

Coming in behind was to have a solution that keeps the system up to date with Tax and Regulatory changes

The 3rd Strategic Requirement was to ensure the company maintained a team with the skillset for maintaining the payroll solution (in-house). In 4th place, was to ensure that a global strategy for reporting was in place.

Requirements: Key figures

Of these Strategies, the 2nd and 3rd make sense. However, they are more expectations for a global payroll solution. 

For example, you would expect that the system software can be easily updated with the latest Tax and Regulatory Changes. You also would need to ensure that you have staff to maintain the system. Luckily, for the customers running SAP Payroll, the Tax and Regulatory updates are just part of the day-to-day deliverables that come with supporting over 10,000 Payroll customers.  

It is even simpler for the customers who have moved, or are moving to Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll. For this group of companies, they will know that these systems are updated on regular schedules by SAP. This means that there will be less dependency on internal staff to apply the technical software updates.

A Single Integrated HR/Payroll solution combined with Global Reporting can drive true efficiency and visibility across your organization.

The Top Strategy can be realized by keeping a single integrated HR/Payroll solution. This will provide a common platform for engaging employees, streamlining processes and keeping consistent reporting across the entire organization. 

This alone has driven the transition of many customers over the last few decades to SAP HCM. This is because they have often merged many different payroll and HR systems together into a single ERP solution. 

It is also not surprising that the 4th most important strategy is to focus on Global Payroll Reporting and Analytics

This point goes hand in hand with maintaining a single point of truth, as maintaining a single system allows for much easier global reporting. Many customers have driven their global HR strategy on these two areas to allow a central single place for all HR/Payroll reporting.

SAP Solutions

Luckily, the SAP solutions, whether it is Employee Central with Employee Central Payroll, Employee Central integrated with On-Premise, or customers using On-Premise (Which is still the majority of the SAP customers), allows for customers to maintain an integrated Payroll and HR Solution.  

SAP is among the few companies with a global system that can service as many countries in regards to payroll. This, by default, allows customers to maintain a single payroll solution. Many other vendors have a comprehensive collection of countries that they can support for HR, but payroll is complex. With over 30 years in this area, SAP takes the cake as they have, and continues to service thousands of global customers.

Global Reporting is one of the areas that SpinifexIT has focused on for over 15 years. We constantly see customers who want to take advantage of years of data to provide insights into their own organization. This also includes being able to access the day-to-day payroll transactional data. SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter is a purpose built tool to address your day to day reporting challenges.

Recently, a research survey was conducted by SAPinsider across a large number of SAP HCM customers. Out of this were many interesting findings, and over the coming weeks, I will share some of these with you.

One of the more surprising numbers was related to the plans for moving from the On-Premise solution. As many of you would be aware, SAP has now determined that the current SAP On-Premise ECC solution will be supported until 2027 (with extended paid support until 2030). This gives only 6 years of time to make a decision on what to do and to actually then move to an alternative solution.

As you can see from the following survey result, just over 60% of customers have no plans to do anything for the moment and to remain on-premise.

Approximately 25% are planning to move to the cloud, which means they will migrate to the Employee Central Payroll (ECP) platform. With this number and the 60% continuing to make no decision, the SAP Payroll Platform remains a very powerful and good option for most customers – especially those who have international Payrolls with multiple countries needing to be paid.

The remainder of these customers will be looking to outsource their payroll to one of the other payroll vendors. 

This, however, doesn’t mean the customers are moving away from SAP, as many of the vendors out there are using the SAP Payroll Solution as the base of their outsourced payroll offering.

From this chart, I can make a few additional observations

  • The insight here is that the SAP Payroll remains a robust and future-proofed solution with the majority of customers not planning to move away from this solution.
  • The vast majority of customers are wanting to keep payroll processing in-house. I believe for many customers, this makes sense as the core business rules and knowledge around the payroll remains close to the business

I feel that many of the customers who are undecided may make more concrete decisions over the coming months or years, once SAP releases more details about the options for migration to the S/4HANA solution for those who want to remain on-premise (this solution will be supported by SAP through to 2040).

This is just one part of the SAPinsider Report, so I would highly recommend reading this to understand the market better and to even compare your own situation to other SAP customers. There is no cost to receive this report, you just have to register.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the SAPinsider Survey insights series!
