As digital landscapes and cloud implementations continue to expand and advance, many SAP users are struggling to keep up, particularly when it comes to changes to payroll.

Companies are facing the hurdle of dealing with regulatory changes, tax changes and the fallout of big events such as strikes. Implementing changes and keeping up-to-date on support has become a real challenge for many organizations. As a result, organizations are on the hunt for Support Packs to help them bear the brunt.

Naturally, the need for Support Packs is growing, moving beyond the previous need of only applying them on a yearly basis in order to maintain compliance.

Basis Technologies’ ActiveDiscover supports SAP users that are struggling with ever-changing HR systems to deploy an SAP HR Payroll Support Pack.

However, deploying the Support Pack is not a simple fix by any means. If an implementation fails it can cause a ripple effect for organizations. More importantly, a poorly implemented HR Support Pack could result in issues with data integrity, HR processes, and overall business operations.

Unexpected issues during implementation can lead to cost overruns, system downtime and security vulnerabilities, exposing sensitive HR data and compliance issues.

With proper Support Packs implementation organizations go through QA testing, conduct risk assessments, test automation, make further changes, do more testing and the cycle continues.

By testing the Support Pack before it’s deployed into the system organizations can gain foresight into the impact of any change it makes, with ActiveDiscover replacing multiple testing with just one test. Any problem that arises is found and addressed right away.

All of a sudden, you’ve significantly reduced the cost of defects and their knock-on effects, including any regulatory and reputational issues that may arise.

By reducing the cost of defects and their effects organizations will eradicate the risk of failing to meet legal and regulatory requirements due to excessively long development cycles.

It also cuts the risks of exposing sensitive HR data to potential breaches or unauthorized access and poor productivity and customer service due to downtimes and data errors.

ActiveDiscover allows users to deploy an SAP HR Payroll Support Pack in a much shorter time frame, turning what took weeks or months into days. It identifies the external systems, users and SAP programs and transactions that will be affected.
