  • This training is intended to give the user an overview of using the HANA Data Factory for a basic Core Workforce and Mobility Metrics Pack implementation on SAP HANA, using Employee Central as the data source.
  • This includes basic navigation and usage of the WFA application. This also includes the configuration of Measures, Analysis Dimension and Structural Dimensions in the OLAP as outlined in the Core Workforce and Mobility Metrics Pack utilizing Employee Central Data. For Example:
    • Measures: Headcounts, Movements and Annual Salary
    • Structural Dimensions: Location, Supervisor
    • Analysis Dimensions: Age, Gender, Employment Types, Employment Status, Movement Reasons and Tenures

Though the course is designed for consultants, customers are welcome to take the course if a deeper understanding of system configuration is desired. Customers should reference the customer-specific instructor-led and self-service (SFALC) offerings and become accredited via the SFX Accreditation program.
