What are Templates in SAP Human Capital Management (HCM)?
The standard SAP software leaves plenty of room for customizing and can be applied to various industries and countries. For quick and efficient usage, SAP itself has created industry solutions that already include industry-specific default settings. In addition, SAP delivers Rapid Deployment Solutions (RDS) including technical default settings for SAP HCM and SAP SuccessFactors. In order to implement and expand SAP systems more efficiently, additional templates, often referred to as apps, have established themselves on the market.
Templates are predefined SAP HCM and SAP SuccessFactors solutions and programs, which simplify the implementation of certain HCM components, thereby reducing both setup time and cost. These templates support large parts of human capital management and specific tasks in the human resources department.
The term template is also used for the central default settings of a company, which can then be distributed to other locations or countries. These templates are created specifically for the company for use only within the corporation.
Ready-made templates exist globally for
- Transnational HCM solutions
- Industry-specific HCM solutions
- Medium-sized companies in specific countries
and particularly for
- Country-specific payrolls
- Time and performance recording requirements
