You can choose what is moved including Payroll Configuration, Infotype Setup, Time Evaluation, Payroll Area Configuration.

It will then update the tables and store the entries onto a Transport (Ready for migration to your Test and Production Systems).

The full process can be run in test mode to simulate what will occur before the live run. This entire process is tracked through audit tables.

STEP 2: Copy Employees

View SAP HCM and payroll data and results in real-time with HCM Reporter.

With the ability to copy employee data directly between systems, you can firstly use this option to move a number of test employees into the new Development System to test the payroll execution. You have options to scramble the data, so that any concerns about privacy of the employee are removed.

You can be selective on what data is migrated to the new system as you may want to move only certain infotypes (as others will replicate from Employee Central).


STEP 3: Validate Payroll Data

A number of pre-delivered reports can be run out of the box to help you check that the new system is operating as you would expect. Key reports examine Payroll Results between the two systems and highlight differences.

This Pay and Year-to-date reports come out of the box. These reports will automatically connect between the Old Version of SAP and the new Employee Central Payroll system to compare the results.

Reports list will be expanded as new countries and scenarios are identified.
