Time flies and another SAPInsider Human Resources conference is just around the corner. HR2016 will be held in Wynn Hotel Las Vegas between 23rd and 26th of February. Just like the previous years’ conferences, this year’s conference promises a lot to the attendees. Industry counterparts and top SAP experts will be there in the conference to share the latest knowledge on SAP®and SuccessFactors solutions including core HR, talent management, and payroll. As a standard approach of the SAPInsider conferences, the knowledge presented to the attendees are presented in a way that is very easy to digest and practical to apply as soon as going back to the office. Metaphorically, SAPInsider encourages the speakers/presenters to provide the information in form of a “pill” that the attendee can swallow smoothly.

In this conference, I will be taking part with two sessions. In my first session; “An expert guide to securely manage authorizations in SAP ERP HCM systems”; I will share my knowledge on tips and tricks of managing authorizations in SAP HCM systems. Namely, the presentation will involve the technical details and best practices for the following:

a.    Identifying critical SAP ERP HCM data in the system

b.    Forming super-HR, restricted-HR, and non-HR authorization roles

c.    Configuring authorization-related SAP ERP HCM customization tables

d.    Protecting critical SAP ERP HCM information using general authorization and structural authorization profiles

e.    Checking the system simultaneously and/or periodically in order catch authorization pitfalls

If you want to hear of my 12 years’ of experience on SAP HCM authorizations, you are welcome to attend my session at 10:30 am on February 25th.

     My second session is a repetation from HR2015, Nice conference : “An expert guide to maximize the capabilities of PPOME for more effective organizational management in SAP ERP HCM”. In this session, I will be sharing knowledge on usage and implementation details of PPOME transaction from SAP HCM Organizational Management module. By attending this session, you will access the best practices and real-world examples to:

a.    Understand why and how to update look and feel of PPOME transaction based on client requirements

b.    Reveal all the under-utilised functionality of PPOME transaction and learn how to implement them

c.    Learn how to make use of hierarchy framework for integration purposes

If these headlines are of interest to you, you are welcome to attend my session at 15:00 pm on February 25th.


     I know how wonderful conferences SAPInsider organizes from my former experience. When in Las Vegas; ambience of the conferences become even better. You know there’s a saying “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”. Believe me, this is not true for vast amount of knowledge learned in SAPInsider conferences. You will have them all in your luggage to take away with you while you’re leaving the city.

    Sadly, I can’t make it, but hope we meet in Vienna.

    Maybe, one fine day, SAPInsider comes up with an attractive location for the US event and then I could spend some vacation days on going – but not for Vegas or Orlando again.

    Sessions sound great. Would love to attend the authorisation one.

        Yep. NYC would be cool. Or Boston, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Toronto, …

        So many interesting places in the US and Canada, but they keep going back to the same dull places 🙁

      Hi Howard,

      We still have on-premise HCM products and sconnect conferences are not very much into it as far as I know.

      Yes, this conference is hosted by WISPUBS.
