Keeping Your Confidential SAP Payroll Data Confidential

SpinifexIT_no_spreadsheetsAt the recent UK and Ireland SAP User Group Conference in Birmingham, Plan International – one of the hundreds of users of SpinifexIT’s innovative HR reporting solutions for SAP – outlined their activities as a charity and how they use SpinifexIT tools to support their amazing efforts “to work with the world’s poorest children so they can move themselves from a life of poverty to a future with opportunity”.

One of the benefits that Plan International get from using Easy Reporter is that they can analyse HR & Payroll data from inside SAP. Using the powerful calculation functions within the toolset, they can perform “What If” type reporting, payroll modeling and produce the type of management information that normally requires users to export data outside of SAP into Excel and brings significant potential for risk, compliance failure.

Now, I’m not saying that this was the case at Sony Pictures Entertainment, but the recent news article “Sony Pictures hack: budgets, layoffs, HR scripts, and 3,800 social security numbers” clearly highlights the risks that can arise once you export data outside of the secure SAP environment.

So, if you are running SAP HCM and you don’t want to end up in the news for all the wrong reasons, come talk to us about your SAP HCM reporting needs.
