SAP HCM System Decommissioning

Ensuring optimal TCO when migrating to SuccessFactors

The challenge

SAP SuccessFactors increases employee engagement, improves employee productivity and lowers employee attrition, whilst reducing HR costs. Here at Proceed we have found that our customers are overlooking an important factor which should be included in their SAP SuccessFactors migration strategy.

Once the migration is complete and SuccessFactors is up and running, left behind is the ‘legacy’ HR employee data which was not required to be included in the migration to SuccessFactors as the employee is no longer with the company, but needs to be kept due to Tax audit and reporting, but has to have restricted access to comply with the GDPR regulations.

We have seen and noted our customers pain and developed our new HR System Decommissioning Solution, which simplifies and reduces the risk in the process of decommissioning precious HR data (including Payroll).


Our HR Decommissioning Solution will

  • Reduce TCO by eliminating legacy system licencing, hardware and maintenance costs
  • Keeps long-term Employee data compliant
  • Decommissioned data is compressed to reduce storage costs
  • Can be implemented to enhance SAP ILM or independently
  • Stored either on-premise or in the Cloud, data is viewable via current SAP system
  • All HR data can be assigned individual rules for retention

How we can help

We can show how including decommissioning in your SuccessFactors Migration will significantly reduce project costs and holistically assist with keeping retained legacy data compliant.

Customer Success Story
During 2019 Proceed have worked with one of the largest telecommunications providers in Canada to decommission a number of SAP systems acquired during acquisitions made over the last 5 years.  Proceed were able to decommission data from all modules of SAP including HR so that this data could still be viewed from the customers current ECC6 enabling the redundant SAP systems to be switched off and disposed of, giving them an impressive ROI on the project.
