Hey, You, Report Off Of My Cloud

By Posted December 8th, 2014

HCM_Cloud2Earlier this year, I wrote a blog post about the importance of HR reporting strategy and potential reasons why HR and Payroll teams rarely have such a strategy. That post was the result of meeting many customers at an event in Australia and asking them the same question: “Does your company have a reporting strategy?” You can read that post to learn what I heard in Melbourne, but recent discussions with our SAP and SuccessFactors customers made me realize that this question isn’t getting any easier to answer.

It’s six months later and the issue of reporting strategy has gotten even more important as the HCM landscape continues to shift and evolve. Companies today are looking at hybrid, full cloud and side-by-side deployment models to take advantage of the best-of-breed solutions in the marketplace. What many fail to take into account when they are making these plans is how will they report on their data once it’s been split between SAP and disparate cloud applications.

Many people think that when it comes to HCM reporting in the new deployment models, you can’t always get what you want. Fortunately for our customers, SpinifexIT has been working hard to provide solutions to this. Our customers today use our solutions like Easy Reporter and Easy Documents to report on data in both hybrid and full cloud deployment models. As a matter of fact, one of the largest SAP full cloud customers in the world uses SpinifexIT solutions to manage its reporting. (more on their story later!)

At SpinifexIT, we like to say “we’ve got you covered” when one of our customers asks us how they will report once they embark on their own unique cloud journey. If you have questions about your own HCM and Payroll reporting strategy, talk to one of our experts. We’re happy to help you avoid your 19th nervous breakdown and hopefully guide you to reporting satisfaction.
