Hi Experts,

I want to know how SAP HR can be connected to SSM ?

What are the challenges in implementation ?

What criteria should be considered while giving effort estimation for SSM project ?

    At one level SAP HR is 'just' another data source that SSM can pull data from.

    But then it becomes more complex!

    You need to be able to answer some questions:

    • what data do you want to pull from HR and at what level - is it going to be data to populate KPIs in SSM or are you talking about metadata?
    • is it aggregated data and would a data warehouse/BW be the best route to go to provide the source rather than pulling direct from HR. Raw base transactional data is rarely loaded into SSM
    • what structures/hierarchies of contexts are you planning to build in SSM and what other data sources will you use

    Hope this helps.

    • Rik,

      Not sure I understand your question!

      Do you actually mean Solution Manager or do you mean SAP Strategy Management (SSM) which is the topic of this forum? The only link between SSM and Solution Manager is that Solution Manager holds the license key for NetWeaver AS which is what SSM is built on.

      If you are wanting to give users access to SSM then the UME in NetWeaver integrates with your chosen authentication methodology to give access. Once in UME they can then be allocated to Roles and have access to SSM.

      If you are trying to pull data through then you need to either go via BW or query/extract from your external system to provide the data to load into the PAS database behind SSM.

      If your question is actually a Solution Manager question then you will find better qualified responses by posting it into the Solution Manager forum.
