When SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics released General Availability with June’s 2005 version, this truly marked an important milestone creating excitement throughout the HXM reporting community. SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics offers a single tool for reporting, insights and dashboards that enables cross-suite reporting based on live transactional data across the SAP SuccessFactors HXM suite.

One of the multifold use cases for insights into HXM data is the manager dashboard. Team managers and leaders need real-time insights into their teams' characteristics and situation, so that they can take better business decisions. With this in mind, SAP Best Practices took on the challenge to create a predefined dashboard, offering a comprehensive set of charts across multiple analytical pages addressing key managerial areas of the workforce. It's my genuine pleasure to share with you the good news that this manager dashboard has been released.

Seven analytical pages constitute the SAP Best Practices for SAP SuccessFactors People Analytics report:

  • Workforce (e.g. headcount, FTE, job levels)

  • Diversity (e.g. gender, age)

  • Recruiting & Hiring (e.g. vacancies, job requisitions, hires)

  • Leaves & Absences (e.g. sick leave)

  • Compensation (e.g. total target cash)

  • Terminations (e.g. exits, reasons)

  • An Additional Charts collection page provides further pre-built charts.

This pivotal report story supports people-centric data privacy and protection aspects by the technical nature of real-time data access. The predefined data queries read workforce data dependent on the managers authorizations in the SAP SuccessFactors system.

If you are excited as I am about this manager dashboard, please go to the Best Practices Explorer, browse through the available content and import the report story into your SAP SuccessFactors environment.

Please be aware that all charts and underlying data queries have been built based on SAP Best Practices configurations for SAP SuccessFactors. This can mean that in case your applications have been setup differently, predefined queries might not retrieve the data correctly. The SAP Note as part of the SAP Best Practices content mentions these dependencies.

Let’s bring easy insights at the fingertip of the business managers and leaders, so that business and workforce decisions can be taken on real-time accurate information.

And please do let us know your feedback. SAP Best Practices strive to package business and implementation knowledge and experiences. Hence, feedback is the backbone of predefined configuration content.
