SAP HCM Pros

Executive Manager & CO. Founder at Phoenix Consulting
HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources.

The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.

It simplifies everything for human capital management, and all users can do self-enrollment for leaves and those kinds of things. The employee self-service feature is quite a powerful feature for me. You can install it on your mobile phone or iPad and do your employee service activity there.

The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.

SAP HCM Cons

Executive Manager & CO. Founder at Phoenix Consulting
SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.

I'm currently working for a state-owned government company, and we need to follow some standards and regulations. We also have a strategy to be followed. Sometimes the template and the format are not available in the SAP HCM, so we have to work around this limitation. The tax also sometimes changes in my country, and we have to redo everything to change the payroll calculations, benefits, and things like that. The talent management feature can be improved. It is currently very simple in SAP HCM. SAP is also very hard to integrate. In terms of monitoring, there are no monitoring tools, but as long as we take care of the disk capacity, there is no problem.

On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.

I would like it to move more towards a single data space, a single data source. SAP as a platform relies on multiple data sources because traditionally, it's been bolted together by the acquisition of other products rather than a single database. That's why there are lots of points of failure and lots of required points of integration. They need a single integration point.

The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.

This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly.

SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions.
