It can be challenging getting easy access to – and reporting on – your highly-sensitive SAP and SuccessFactors HCM/HXM and Payroll data. Query Manager™ is a powerful solution that enables you to create custom reports, send automated communications, push content to analytics products (like Power BI or Tableau) and integrate with Microsoft Excel. By combining data from On-premise SAP and SuccessFactors, Query Manager gives you one solution for all your SAP reporting needs. It’s a comprehensive solution that will journey with you to the cloud, from SAP HR & Payroll and SAP SuccessFactors Hybrid to Employee Central Payroll. Query Manager with Document Builder™ is certified by SAP for ‘Integration with SAP S/4HANA®’.
How do you extract accurate, meaningful and real-time information from all of your SAP® HCM and Payroll data? Query Manager™ is a powerful, flexible, easy-to-use solution that solves your reporting challenges. The brilliance of Query Manager is that it empowers you to:
Query Manager has access to virtually any data source, although we deliver content for HCM, Payroll and SuccessFactors Hybrid. Additional data sources which may be added include SAP S/4HANA Finance, as many of our clients have successfully done.
One of the challenges faced by SAP HCM customers is that multiple tools (Ad Hoc Query, SE16, Custom ABAP, Wage Type Reporter and others) are required to report on critical HR and Payroll data. This data is often collected via these multiple tools and consolidated offline in an application like Microsoft Excel®, Access® or SAP Business Warehouse (BW). The process is time-consuming and increases the risk of errors. It also introduces security and data integrity risks since the data is extracted and manipulated outside of your SAP system.
Query Manager saves you using multiple sources to get the data you need. Examples of real-time data sources available include: SAP Personnel Administration, Payroll (including de-clustered Payroll results), Benefits, Time Management and CATS, Payroll Postings, Organizational Management, On-Premise Talent modules including E-Learning and Performance Management, system configuration and SAP SuccessFactors data.
Users of existing SAP reporting solutions often rely on trained IT resources to create or run their reports. The processes can be complex and can require transports (Development to Quality Assurance to Production) and periodic updates. Standard SAP Query solution functionality hasn’t been updated for over 15 years, which brings additional problems. The changing landscape, including the acquisition of SAP SuccessFactors®, can make your reporting landscape even more complex.
You are up and running with the solution immediately - it’s just an SAP transport to install. You can use over 250 pre-delivered reports immediately, search the online community for existing reports, or easily build your own reports. Query Manager gives you control over what you want to see, the report appearance, and how you distribute the output.
As an offline data repository, BW only stores aggregated data and doesn’t include real-time information. It usually does not include any transactional or operational data, and the Payroll InfoCube only allows for monthly results.
Query Manager enables you to create powerful reports, regardless of your HCM deployment. It is integrated with SAP SuccessFactors for On-premise SAP and hybrid SAP SuccessFactors reporting. It also allows you to add your own data sources inside SAP or your own external non-SAP data source, perform calculations on your data, create charts via the Fiori app, produce amazing outputs via Document Builder, and schedule and distribute reports automatically.

As you journey from On-premise SAP to SuccessFactors, you may find yourself in a Hybrid scenario, using some SAP and some SuccessFactors modules at the same time. With Query Manager, reporting on data from both systems at the same time is easy:
You may have started your cloud journey with a Talent solution from SuccessFactors, while still using your On-premise SAP HR and Payroll. Query Manager makes it easy for you to access both, allowing you to report on employee data from the SAP database and recruitment data in SuccessFactors.
When data is moved from one system to another, you need to ensure that it is accurate and consistent, without discrepancies. With Query Manager, you can perform a detailed comparison of the data between the two systems – including any mapping rules – in real time, to identify any mismatches quickly and easily.
Data replication means making sure you have the correct data in the right systems. It’s the process of storing data in more than one place to improve its availability, and often involves copying data from one place to another. Query Manager gives you confidence in the data replication process and allows you to audit for consistency.
Applying each Support Pack potentially introduces changes to a system’s configuration and processing, that then requires reviewing. You need to run before and after reports that flag any changes to records – configuration, Master data or Payroll results – following a system update or Support Pack application. Query Manager solves that challenge.
Approximately 700 customers are currently licensed for SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. If you’re one of them, read on!
Whether you migrated from On-Premise SAP Payroll or simply deployed Employee Central Payroll, you’ll need to report on your Payroll data.
Query Manager offers:
According to the SAP SuccessFactors Roadmap, the inclusion of some Employee Central Payroll data is scheduled, but not yet available within People Analytics. If you wish to report on data that is unavailable today, or not scheduled for inclusion at release – like Payroll reporting or On-premise HCM data – you can continue to use Query Manager.
With Query Manager, it’s like Steve Jobs said: ‘It just works’. It does exactly what you want it to do. It is a reporting tool, but it has additional functionality that standard SAP reporting tools don’t have.
