Bureau of Meteorology
The Bureau of Meteorology is the National Meteorological Authority for Australia. The Bureau maintains a network of field offices across the Australian continent, on neighbouring islands and in Antarctica. The Bureau uses the HCM Data Replication Module to replicate over six years worth of PA and PD master data, Payroll, Time and Audit clusters between their SAP landscapes rather than having to rely upon client refreshes.
Since its implementation of SAP HR in 2005, The Bureau of Meteorology has struggled to find a suitable tool that would allow the quick and accurate replication of Payroll and Time results, and master data, between clients. Generally those tools the Bureau had previously utilised proved to both cumbersome and restrictive. The Nexus Suite HCM Data Replication Module now allows the Bureau to quickly copy PA and PD data, on an individual or organisational level: this capability has assisted in the rapid resolution of payroll issues as well as been a invaluable tool in this organisation’s support pack and regression testing analysis. I now regard the HCM Data Replication Module as being an integral part of the Bureau’s SAP HR landscape

Orica has three market-leading platforms, Orica Mining Services, Minova and Orica Chemicals, that supply the global mining and infrastructure industries with critical consumables and have over 13,000 people located in around 50 countries across six continents. Orica uses the HCM Gateway Module to integrate employee data from over fifty countries into a single SAP HCM environment. The HCM Gateway Module provides Orica with a fully configurable, transparent, auditable, and automated process which would be unable to attain through alternative means.
Orica is the world’s leading supplier of commercial explosives to more than 50 countries. One of the biggest challenges we face is delivering a single HRMS to all countries due to the complex issue of integrating employee data from all countries into a single database. The answer to this complex problem – the Nexus Suite.
With Nexus we have been able to take payroll extracts from all countries and tailor the inbound interface into our ECC6 SAP HR environment. The HCM Gateway Modules ‘executables’ are configured, by our functional resources, account for country, SAP specific fields, values, numbers, symbols, etc. Having each of the ‘executables’ linked together through the Nexus Controller allows us to process each countries data file in a matter of minutes compared to a number of days in the past. Our process has no manual intervention as files are received on the server and then auto processed. Emails notify our support staff if there are any issues with the load.

Victoria Police provides a 24-hour police service to the Victorian community. Victoria Police employ more than 14,000 people, including police, public servants and protective security officers, serving Victoria, with a population in excess of five million. During their SAP implementation TIK partnered with SAP and provided the Data Conversion and Payroll Verification Modules resulting in being able to successfully migrate over four million records from seven disparate legacy systems through a fully automated conversion process resulting in a conversion success rate of over 99.9997% accuracy (the 0.0003% was the result of previously identified data cleansing issues that were deemed acceptable by the business).
During the HR Assist (SAP) implementation, TIK partnered with SAP allowing Victoria Police to leverage off the Nexus Suite Data Conversion and Payroll Verification Modules. This ultimately resulted in a successful migration from multiple legacy applications into the majority of the SAP HCM sub modules (i.e. PA, PD, LMS, PY, FI/CO, OH&S etc) with virtually 100% accuracy. The combination of these two modules allowed Victoria Police to perform full payroll verification runs on the entire Victoria Police employee base (which is over 14,000 employees) with all of the analysis being performed within the Payroll Verification Module. During each of the payroll verification cycles the delta processing options available within the Data Conversion Module provided us with the ability to identify and load all of the transactional data that had changed or been created in the legacy system during the applicable period thereby preventing us from having to use thirty or so resources to enter the transactional data into the system manually.
All of the conversions were performed through an auditable and automated process using the Nexus Suite Data Conversion Module with an overall failure rate of only 0.0003%. This was a result of previously identified data cleansing issues that had been signed off by Victoria Police prior to the conversion occurring. If it wasn’t for the Nexus Suite and its ease of use and sophistication the HR Assist project wouldn’t have been anywhere near the success that it was.

Prior to QuickLoad in order to get data into SAP we had to write LSMW’s and bludgeon the data into shape. If anything changed in the underlying configuration we’d have to re-record the LSMW and start the whole process again. With QuickLoad getting data into SAP becomes effortless – I can’t imagine having to go back to LSMW’s.
