      Hi Any,

      If you are migrating from SAP ERP HCM to Employee Central then you can use the Infoporter tool that SAP provide free of charge. Otherwise Accenture Software provide some good tools that would work for migration and scrambling.

      Best regards,

      Luke

      Hi Rajendra,

      There is no direct integration between Employee Central and Performance Management, so there won't be anything. There are some blogs on integration between Employee Central and Recruiting under "Integration with SAP SuccessFactors HCM suite applications". There are also guides on http://help.sap.com.

      Best regards,

      Luke

      Thanks Jaypal. Everything is either already listed here, in the SAP SuccessFactors – Useful Resources and Documents, or is available on SAP sites (e.g. on http://help.sap.com).

      Hi Luke Marson

      Wondering if there is any high level conceptual data model of SAP SF EC to represent how different entities are interlinked to each other ?

       

      thanks

      Yes there is. It's located in the "SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central OData API: Reference Guide" on the SAP Help Portal:

      Hi Luke Marson

       

      I am unable to access this link to download the data dictionary and changes to understand the LMS ER. Any chance I can access this information elsewhere ?

       

      Thanks

      The link worked for me and downloaded the documents. Does your S-User have the right permissions? I think this is more likely related to the permissions your S-User has than anything else.

      Yea it seems like a permission error.

      I have created my sap account few days ago ,

      how to get the authorization to access the ERD link?

      thanks

      Your user administrator needs to ensure you have the right authorizations to access SAP SuccessFactors content. There is a KBA on the SAP ONE Support portal that covers it.
