Word is slowly starting to come out on what will be delivered in EHP5 for Human Capital Management and although it is subject to change I thought I would share it with the SDN community.
EHP5 is scheduled to be available for ramp up customers in June, 2010 and as someone who has been involved in ramp up projects for EHP1, EHP3 and EHP4 there are a lot of benefits for taking part in the program with the most obvious being the ability to use the latest and greatest that SAP has to offer. To find out more information regarding the ramp up program.
Enclosed is a high level description of some of the key items tentatively planned for EHP5:
Workforce Process Management
- Localized payroll standard solution for Chile
- Enhancements for displaying the organizational chart
- Mobile in-box to collect time entries and leave request
- Extended integration between the SAP E-Recruiting application and the core HR system in the hiring process
