All of these topics are being covered today at the pre-conference education day at HR 2011 in Amsterdam. We are half way through the day and so far the conference is going very well.
The session that ran this morning called “An essential and up-to-date guide to SAP ERP HCM and SAP enhancement packages: Capabilities, benefits, requirements, and infrastructure” was very well attended. Michael Wulf and Anna Hoffan delivered the session and talked about the best ways to leverage SAP ERP HCM functionality to quickly adapt to business and market changes, to increase the efficiency of your workforce, and to control and lower HR related costs.
People who attended the session were able to:

Step through the requirements to properly integrate these components with each other, as well as with critical applications within your SAP landscape, such as financials.
See how the latest enhancements in the areas of compensation, shared-service delivery, travel management, and talent management could impact your SAP ERP HCM landscape, both now and in the future.
Evaluate SAP solutions for talent management as a means to transform your talent acquisition, training, and performance management activities.
