Figures, data and transparency instead of gut feeling

SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Qualtrics

Do you know when employees quit? How key qualifications relate to age structures? How the sickness rate is developing?
The SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) for HR provides end-to-end transparency and linkage of operational HR master and transactional data. When combined with employee experience data using SAP Qualtrics, you gain insights into employee retention and engagement, giving you the opportunity to derive targeted improvement measures.


Understanding and optimizing the employee experience

Better Human Resources Management decisions with the right data

With SAP Analytics Cloud for HR, you have an overview of your HR data. It is not only about retrieving classic HR key figures for reporting, but also about differentiated analyses of transaction data, e.g. of terminations in relation to departments/ positions/ qualifications/ age (advanced analysis) and predictions about the behavior of your employees (predictive analysis).

In addition to such organization-related data ("O-data" = operational data framework, such as quantity, structure, event, performance and cost data), the combination with experience data ("X-data" = experience data) provides a holistic view of your HR department. How employees experience their working environment is like a mosaic with many facets.

Do you know how satisfied your employees are?

70% of all employees do duty by the book, many have already quit inside (Gallup Study 2019). The perception of the manager, the lived corporate culture, the existing understanding of values, career paths, benefits - all of this influences the Employee Experience. A good employee experience ensures motivated, committed employees; a poor employee experience means, in the worst case, sick, unmotivated, underperforming employees and terminations.

By linking qualitative employee experience data and quantitative data, you get detailed explanations of your employees' behavior and thus a solid, data-driven basis for guiding HR policy decisions and actions.


End-to-end transparency creates clarity and decision-making capability

As a strategic SAP solution for analytics and planning of the very latest generation, the SAP Analytics Cloud does not require any additional hardware or a separate data warehouse and maps all strategic warehouse functions in the cloud. It makes no difference whether the data is SAP HCM HR master data or HR data from SAP SuccessFactors. The open interface architecture of SAP Analytics Cloud enables an integrated view of all your data.

SAP Analytics Cloud for HR provides end-to-end support for HR management and strategic alignment through an intelligent data foundation. Individually, depending on the management level, decision makers have an overview of their HR data on their dashboards, such as:

  • CEO, CHRO, COO on global data across all locations with focus on strategic topics, such as diversity, leadership or personnel costs
  • HR managers on the most important KPIs by location
  • HR Business Partner on the most important KPIs by division
  • HR Controller on master data level
