1 Payroll Posting Outsourcing Solution
1.1 Description
Currently SAP does not provide an outsourcing interface for payroll posting to FICO. The
application introduced in this Product Description can handle the complexity of a generic
posting interface to FICO. This inherently applies to all third party posting requirements or
partial payroll outsourcing.
The application integrates non SAP payroll systems with SAP FICO. The following features
are available
Basic
 Supports all vendors like ADP, ProBusiness, and other vendors
 Integrates in a familiar SAP way via standard HCM FI/CO process
 Simple installation
 Uses SAP standard symbolic account configuration
 Displays the exported IDOC file in a readable format
Custom Options
 Optional Grid/Tree view
 Multiple Outsourcing Provider Interface for subsidiaries with different implementations
 Custom Notifications
 Project Services Interface to WBS element assignments
 Overrides for incoming cost centers
 Public Sector: Funds/Grants assignments
 Public Sector: Distribution of liabilities according to Expenses possible
This solution does not require any modification to the current SAP Payroll Posting and
Outsourcing applications. All components developed in this custom solution are standalone or
interfaced with SAP applications via standard interfacing and service methods. The
application seamlessly integrates with any partial SAP Payroll implementation.

2.3.2 Shortcomings of the SAP Business Process Outsourcing for Payroll
The SAP system supports payroll outsourcing for net payroll on a complex level but only for
no solution for complete payroll outsourcing. For example you want to outsource your entire
payroll to a provider and only import the final FICO posting results. In such a case SAP does
not provide a solution that can store the incoming posting documents.
As a supervisor you only want to have a list of all incoming posting items and see the total
balance before posting to FICO. The custom solution proposed here will allow this in an easy
way.

2.4 Performance
The application will perform very fast. Only in the case that massive incoming posting data
needs to be analyzed will performance be impacted.
2.5 Reliability
To approach software reliability1 we utilize the best engineering methods to improve software
reliability of our solutions. Before the deployment of software solutions, testing, verification
and validation will be performed. Software testing in form of unit and acceptance tests is used
to minimize the possibility of defect occurrences after release and therefore improve our
1
According to ANSI, Software Reliability is defined as: the probability of failure-free software operation for a
specified period of time in a specified environment. Software Reliability is an important attribute of software
quality, together with functionality, usability, performance, serviceability, capability, installability, maintainability,
and documentation. Software Reliability is usually hard to achieve, because the software complexity tends to be
high.

software reliability. After deployment of our software solutions, field data will be gathered and
analyzed to improve the software and provide updates as necessary.
2.6 Durability
We achieve software durability2 through an pragmatic approach that combines object oriented
techniques (OOTs) with formal description techniques (FDTs). OOTs help system analysts
and designers to bring modularization and structure to the programs to permanently commit
data changes. The main focus of FDTs is to ensure the correctness of the final system by the
provision of extensive validation and verification methods.
2.7 Simplicity and Aesthetics
It is a requirement that the solution will be easy to use and to maintain. There should be no
special knowledge needed to run the application. All of this should ultimately lead to a good
user-perceived quality of the solution.

In computer science, durability is the property that guarantees that transactions that are successfully
committed will survive permanently and will not be undone by system failure.
