I am very excited to announce the release of a new SAP/SuccessFactors class – WNAPCC – SAP/SuccessFactors Payroll Control Center. This class goes into detailed configuration that will teach you how to configure the Payroll Control Center (PCC). The PCC is applicable to both SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll customers, as well as SAP On Premise Payroll customers (Including EC + SAP Payroll Hybrid Models) and as such, this class has been built to be relevant to both.


This is a class that I was fortunate enough to be able to create from scratch with a lot of freedom and flexibility. I was also fortunate to have the support and guidance of product management throughout this process. I have been working very hard the past few months to get this class ready as I have found it to be an area with a lot of misconceptions and confusion and one where there is a lot of help needed in the marketplace.


In order to create this class I chose to setup the Payroll Control Center from scratch in my system. I was given a SAP system on the appropriate enhancement pack and support pack level and decided to do every aspects of the configuration in order to make sure that I did understand it and could teach it and explain it. From activating the business functions and setting up Netweaver Gateway to configuring the PCC processes and writing/updating the ABAP code for validations/KPIs as well as everything in between.


There were a lot of long nights and weekends involved in setting up and configuring the PCC for this class, but now that this class is available it will help others get up to speed significantly faster and learn about the complex relationships and steps involved with the setup. Here is a full breakdown of the structure of the class and what all you will learn about when you attend this class

While this class was created as a North American workshop in order for to get it rolled out ASAP (Denoted by the WNA in the course code), this class has been setup using the International Payroll Area (99) and is relevant to all countries and is NOT North America specific. Feel free to sign up regardless of which country you are in.


The first public instance of this class will be taught September 6, 2016 – September 9, 2016 as a Virtual classroom and I will be teaching this class!

I would like to be clear that while we do go into details and have an entire Lesson on SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll as well as showing the integration with EC,this is not an Employee Central Payroll class. This class is taught from an SAP On Premise system.


For a non technical audience who would like overview of the Payroll Control Center capabilities without looking at configuration, see my upcoming SAP Press book on the PCC. This book is perfect for HR/Payroll end users, Executives, pre-sales/sales, marketing or any others who want to understand the capabilities of the Payroll Control Center without going into the technical details and configuration.

    Is there any future courses in this year planning?

    Do you know if we can utilize OM/position data for workflow instead of using the HR admin field on Infotype 0001?

      Hi Phillip,

      We were just working on figuring out my schedule for this class and created a few more instances of the class on the calendar for this year. Check it out and sign up if it works for your schedule!

      Regarding your OM/Position question – do you mean for defining who are the Payroll Control Center Admins that can be assigned validation rules to look into? The standard implementation uses table T526 and a group on this table that you define in your configuration (Which we talk about in the class and have an exercise on).

      There is a BAdI if you want to override the standard implementation and create your own logic such as using position data.
