It continues to be a confusing time for SAP’s approximately 14,000 licensed On-premise HCM customers. In 2012 SAP announced a movement to the cloud and a planned cessation of its On-premise HCM applications, including Payroll. When initially announced, the guaranteed support date was through calendar year-end 2015 and customers were encouraged to journey to the cloud, adopting the SAP SuccessFactors cloud versions of the HCM solutions.

Join SAP Mentor, acclaimed author and international speaker Danielle Larocca as she provides an update on the options available for the existing SAP HCM on-premise customers as they make their journey from On-premise SAP HCM and Payroll to SAP SuccessFactors and the cloud. This comprehensive session will bring you up to speed on the changes in the HCM space, the options for each landscape model and how they came to be including an analysis of the pros, cons and considerations for each including the multiple Payroll deployment models.

Key takeaways:

  • Review the factors that should impact your decision to move to the cloud and which model is best suited for your organizations needs
