SpinifexIT and CodeBot accelerate SuccessFactors Migrations and Implementations

The first end-to-end solution that accelerates HCM migrations while simultaneously enabling ongoing customer digital transformation.

You may have seen our recent press release that announces a partnership between SpinifexIT and CodeBot for SuccessFactors (If not: See here). As part of our partnership, we bring complementary software to our partners and customers a unique opportunity to accelerate the movement and configuration of SuccessFactors and SAP HCM.

This blog helps to explain the value points that each of the companies deliver both separately and when combined.

In summary, the SpinifexIT solutions are fantastic accelerators when migrating your employees and configuration into SuccessFactors, as well as supporting ongoing testing. The Codebot solution provides an automated way to streamline initial and ongoing configuration and testing related activities. When these solutions are used in combination the implementation and maintenance process for both SuccessFactors and SAP HCM is accelerated and simplified reducing risk and enhancing time to value.

SpinifexIT Easy Migration and Easy Go Live Solutions

These two SpinifexIT solutions typically are used by customers to accelerate many of the processes around either an implementation of SAP HCM and Employee Central or a Migration from SAP HCM ECC to either ECP and S/4HANA.

The SpinifexIT solutions cover the following key use cases:

  • Analysis of SAP Configuration prior to a migration

  • Migration of Configuration to a new SAP Environment (Lift & Shift)

  • Extraction of SAP Configuration for quick loading into Employee Central

  • Extraction of Employee Data from SAP for loading into Employee Central

  • Migration of Employees from SAP ECC to ECP or S/4HANA

  • Parallel Run Testing

In addition: SpinifexIT also offers many HR and Payroll operational solutions for customers on SAP HCM or SuccessFactors even after the initial implementation, such as advanced reporting solutions across HCM and SuccessFactors, employee document generation and data cloning and anonymisation to name a few.

CodeBot

The SFCodeBot solution is used by customers who are configuring SAP SuccessFactors, (including Employee Central), helping manage the configuration and allowing for easier migration of configuration to a new system (Dev -> Test -> Production).

Think of SFCodebot as an Advanced Configuration Management Solution.  Codebot follows the SAP approach using excel type workbooks automatically extracting your configuration documentation, and rather than needing to manually enter new configuration details into SuccessFactors, it will automatically update the configuration directly into the system.

Key Use Cases

CodeBot also gives SAP Partners the ability to quickly update a pre-built configuration model helping accelerate new implementations.  Further to being an implementation solution, it is utilized by existing customers to better manage their ongoing configuration and enhancements.

SpinifexIT and SFCodeBot Complement each other

Now customers and their partners can use the SpinifexIT and SFCodeBot solutions as a fast start when populating the customer’s new SuccessFactors Solution.  This means that you can quickly get SuccessFactors initial configuration and employee data loads into the system for testing, comparison, validation and deployment.

After this initial load, any further configuration can be taken over by SFCodeBot. SFCodeBot can then be used to manage further configuration via workbooks, but just as importantly, it can be used to migrate the SuccessFactors Configuration to each of the subsequent SuccessFactors systems.

In the meantime, whilst continuing to configure in SuccessFactors, the SpinifexIT solutions can continue to focus on any further movement of HCM Configuration to SuccessFactors, Creation of EC / ECP employee test data, and comparing the results between the systems (Parallel runs)
