Data Sync Manager (DSM) allows you to select and transfer specific HCM data objects easily and accurately, as needed, and to mask sensitive data for confidentiality, security and governance compliance.
You can copy subsets of data (Object Sync) with fine-grained selection options or entire clients (Client Sync), making it easier to fix production issues, test new functionality or train your team with ‘production-like’ data without putting personal data at risk.
In addition to the HCM and Payroll information, DSM supports the distribution of downstream modules such as CATS, SAP Finance, eRecruitment and Business Partners.
DSM also supports SuccessFactors hybrid architecture, and is an SAP-certified solution.
Clients in hybrid scenarios (SAP ECC On-Premise and SuccessFactors Employee Central) – or those using SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll – have limited options for making test data available across these environments.
You are also likely to need access to your critical HCM and Payroll production data in non-production systems for testing, training and support, including the consistent masking of SuccessFactors data. Even after an Instance Refresh, you must still anonymize the data to comply with SAP's data-processing agreement.
SuccessFactors doesn’t offer the same transport mechanisms as traditional ERP systems. Keeping your ERP, Payroll and SuccessFactors systems consistent for testing is a challenge. DSM Object Sync for SuccessFactors Add-on offers the ability to intelligently manage your data within the landscape to increase efficiency.
Masking of data consistently between your ERP, Payroll and SuccessFactors systems is not something any standard tools can deliver. DSM Data Secure for SuccessFactors Add-on offers the ability to intelligently and consistently mask data across existing ERP/Payroll and SuccessFactors systems.
Data Sync Manager (DSM) is certified by SAP for 'Integration with SAP S/4HANA®' and for 'Integration with SAP S/4HANA Cloud®'. Our Data Sync Manager (DSM) suite is also listed by SAP to run on Employee Central Payroll (Note 2167337).
DSM5 also 'works with RISE with SAP'.
DSM was initially developed specifically for HCM, but later became available for other SAP ERP applications including FI and LO, SRM, CRM, SCM, GTS and BW.

With Object Sync for HCM, you can select any HCM master data (such as employee data) or Payroll data (payroll and time results) and copy this to a non-production target client. You can also copy basic business objects, such as user master and report variant data. Optional encryption conversions allow the protection of sensitive data.
As data is copied as needed, non-production systems can be kept up-to-date, which is more efficient for test, training and support purposes.
Data protection is crucial to HCM systems because of the sensitivity of personal data. An integral part of DSM 5 for HCM is Data Secure™, which scrambles all HCM data intelligently and consistently across the landscape, according to masking rules. Download masking rules from our online user community, extend as needed, and apply during syncs or to scramble data in place. This ensures that your data conforms to data protection standards.
With DSM Object Sync for SuccessFactors Add-on, you can mask and copy data within and across SuccessFactors Employee Central and your on-premise SAP system (or Employee Central Payroll) for secure testing.
You can define templates to regulate how users access the data. Since users can select and copy the exact data they need, there are no system interruptions and the Basis team can focus on other important tasks.
No more manual recreation of testing and training data. With DSM for HCM, you can copy or clone Employee or HR Planning data, giving you up-to-date, valid production data for testing, or for simulated environments to use in training. Users can refresh data easily and regularly without reliance on their IT department.
Over many years, we have built up a library of business object definitions, which incorporates our in-depth understanding of SAP data structures. So DSM for HCM moves data consistently and intelligently, ensuring the transfer of all relevant data, with all links intact.
With HR Planning Mass Copy, easily accessed from the Launchpad, you can copy Personnel Planning data for selected or all PD object types at once. This functionality is optimized for copying large data-sets.
The SAP-certified Data Sync Manager suite includes Object Sync and Client Sync. They can be used as independent solutions, or together with other products of the DSM suite.
With Object Sync, users can select any HCM master data (such as employee data, organizational data or payroll results) and copy this to a non-production target client easily and accurately, as needed, and to mask sensitive data for confidentiality, security and governance compliance.
Client Sync empowers an SAP user with the ability to copy entire clients, with specific date selections, which is so critical for HCM.More about Client Sync Watch our DSM video series Request a Demo
