What is new with the Enterprise Compensation Management in EHP5

by Jarret Pazahanick

June 9, 2010

Word is slowly starting to come out on what will be delivered in Enhancement Package 5 (EHP5) for Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) 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.

Enclosed is a high level description of some of the key items tentatively planned for EHP5 for ECM:                                            

Enhancements for compensation specialist

-Process Types and Process Support

-Employee-based Budgeting

-Power User Access

Enhancements for (higher-level) managers

-New Web Dynpro ABAP user interface and functionality to enha nce planning and approval process

-Flexible Compensation Planning

  • Configuration of tabs (e.g., All tab)
  • Dependent plans
  • Enterable custom columns
  • Download to Microsoft Excel
  • Planning Overview

-Employee Compensation Profile

It is important to note that Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) got the following new enhancements with enhancment package 4 (EHP4) released last year.
