On the surface, reporting in the human resources space might seem less complicated than other areas. After all, people are people, right? But in truth, HR reporting – and reporting in SAP ERP Human Capital Management specifically – is in some ways more complicated than other enterprise reporting areas, due to some back-end nuances and user-focused concerns.
I spoke with HR reporting expert Danielle Larocca of SpinifexIT this week about HR reporting with SAP ERP HCM and, as I expected, she pointed out some things that many HCM users may not be aware of.
For example, Larocca explained to me that ad-hoc queries are available in SAP ERP HCM, but are best suited for a quick lookup and not reused. For more robust reporting, SAP queries are the way to go. (And yes, she provided more detail than I have here).
Larocca and I also talked about the strengths and weaknesses of using BI/BW in HR reporting, integrating HR queries into other applications, and tips on security considerations in HR reporting.
You can listen to my entire conversation with Larocca in this podcast:
