SAP HR: Should it be a separate system or a shared one?


Hi friends,

We are in the decision point in our project about the system landscape of SAP HCM system.

There are three options we are considering about SAP HCM installation:

1. On a separate system

2. On a shared system with other modules but separate client

3. On a shared system & client with other modules.

The most important concern of my client is the confidentiality of the salary & payroll data.

Thus, they think that we may enhance confidentiality if we separate the HR system physically.

However, there will be a lot of integration points of HR module with other modules (FI, CO, cProjects), thus I believe that separating the HR system would slow down the speed of the project.

Please share you ideas & experience with me on this regard so that I can offer them a logical solution.

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,
