In 2019, I published a blog called Choosing your path to SuccessFactors? where I talked about how clients had several options on how to move forward on their journey to the cloud.

Since then, several new options have come forward, including options for digital transformation in line with the HXM Move initiative.


Options for SAP customers are detailed in a few places, including these popular blogs:

What remains the same, however, is that a free online assessment is a great place to get started.

Deciding on your digital transformation strategy for HXM and Payroll can be complicated. There is quite a bit going on in the marketplace, and you want to make sure you make the right decision and start the migration at the right time, and at the right pace. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for every client, and there are items that will impact which direction you should go, and how fast or slowly you should do so.


A lot of this is going to depend on the complexity of your specific SAP HCM or Payroll system. For example, you may have heard in the past that clients with complex Time and Benefits configuration might be a good fit for the SAP® HCM for SAP S/4HANA On-Premise Edition, and that clients looking forward to an affordable SaaS model might be a great fit for SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll.


We have a free assessment tool that will give you information about your SAP system to help you understand what your migration path might look like. This free assessment is simply a download which includes an SAP transport that will run on your SAP environment.


It’s essentially a transport that collects key structural data from your system, including things like:

  • number of countries configured for Payroll
  • how many custom tables are in use
  • which Wage Types are configured, versus which are in use
  • custom programs
  • custom Infotypes.

The transport applied does all of this without exposing any of your Employee or Confidential system data. The data that is returned back from the assessment is available as an interactive web dashboard. Here is a sample:


Having a definitive analysis of your system’s complexity is the first step in determining your next step in your SAP SuccessFactors migration.
