The very first content release for SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 (BW4CONT200 SP00) is now available for installation and delivers content for the most used content components as shown below.

The most of these content components are sourced from SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA applications and were already available with SAP BW/4HANA Content 1.0.

But there is one new content area that was anticipated by many customers and now exclusively shipped for SAP BW/4HANA 2.0: standard content that is based on data structures sourced from the core SAP SuccessFactors component Employee Central.


What is included in the first SuccessFactors Workforce Management content?

InfoObjects are provided to store the time dependent data for Person, for JobCode, for Position and for the Employment History per Employee. The information stored in these InfoObjects can be used for master data reporting. Potential use cases are the analysis of the current and historic workforce by different dimensions such as gender, country, business unit, etc., the analysis of hires and terminations or reporting on vacant positions across the entire company.

You can access the full online documentation of the content objects in the SAP BW/4HANA Content 2.0 Documentation.


How do I get the data from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central into SAP BW/4HANA 2.0?

For the data integration, we would recommend to use the OData API adapter provided by SAP HANA Smart Data Integration that is seamless integrated with the SAP HANA DataSource in SAP BW/4HANA 2.0. You can find more information about how to setup the connectivity in SAP Note 2776343 - Connectivity to SuccessFactors for SAP BW/4HANA Content.
