LEAD Track: The Evolution of the Integrated Workforce – Piecing It All Together: Best Practices for Preparing to Move to the Cloud at Your Pace

This session is aimed at helping you better prepare to move to the cloud — from developing a convincing business case, to choosing strategic partners and appropriate tools, to learning tips and tricks to ensure smooth implementation and go-live.

  • Explore how to review your on-premise SAP ERP HCM system to figure out which partner or implementation option — including talent hybrid, side-by-side, and full cloud — would best align with your organization’s needs and structure.
  • Learn how to differentiate between SAP cloud strategies such as rapid-deployment solutions versus full implementation; how to establish KPIs, project goals, design, and project scope; and how to develop appropriate testing and timeline to ensure successful implementation.
  • Understand how critical the partnership between HR and IT can be in your cloud journey, and how you can improve team performance and engagement with strategic communication.
  • Take home a full dataflow map showing the integration points between SAP® SuccessFactors® modules in a full cloud implementation.

RENEW Track: A Fresh Look at Traditional Systems and HR Practices: A New Paradigm for SAP SuccessFactors Payroll

Most of us look at our bank statement ― or get a notification of deposits ― and if the pay is about what we expect, we move along. Maybe from time to time we look at our pay statement to see some details on deductions or taxes. Pretty simple. But then, payroll isn’t so simple. From collecting all the data needed to pay someone, doing the calculations, distributing the results, and reporting to banks and accounting and regulatory agencies, there are plenty of things that can go wrong for one employee. Multiply that by hundreds or thousands of employees and the risk is huge. So the question is: Can we actually make payroll any more simple? Lots of ideas are being white-boarded within SAP, including one that involves a self-service payroll model. In this session, payroll expert Steve Bogner will talk about the basic requirements to run a successful payroll and we will kick around ideas to make it “easy.”

Speaker: Steve Bogner, Managing Partner, Insight Consulting Partners
