Advanced analytics has revolutionized the HR landscape. However, implementing an HR analytics strategy is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor; it requires a careful balance of the right metrics and tools that are cost-effective and provide insightful data about the workforce. HCM 360 analytics represents a holistic approach to Human Capital Management, using advanced analytics to offer a complete view of an organization’s workforce dynamics. It integrates data from multiple sources—such as HRIS, performance, and learning management systems, along with engagement tools—to form a 360-degree perspective on employee management and performance.

This approach involves descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics to not only provide insights on historical data but also forecast future trends and offer actionable recommendations. Interactive dashboards and visual tools help HR professionals quickly understand and respond to data, facilitating better strategic workforce planning, optimizing resource allocation, and enhancing employee engagement. With the ultimate goal of improving decision-making, productivity, and employee satisfaction, HCM 360 analytics also prioritizes compliance and risk management, ensuring data integrity and security are maintained.

The integration of HR systems with broader business functions through platforms like Datasphere and SAP Analytics Cloud represents a transformative approach to business operations. It allows companies to leverage their data more effectively, ensuring comprehensive visibility and enhanced decision-making capabilities across all levels of the organization. For any organization looking to modernize their HR departments in real-time, Precog offers the ideal solution. Precog tools ensure rapid, near real-time data integration, transforming business operations with radical simplicity.

Precog provides ready-to-use data from all major HR platforms. This capability is especially crucial for businesses that utilize a variety of platforms like ADP, UKG, Oracle, Icertis, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Fieldglass, ServiceNow, WorkForce Software and others, from which the Precog ELT platform automatically extracts data and generates analytic-ready tables. This data is then structured into schemas and delivered to the preferred destination, whether it is an organization’s data warehouse or any other database of their choice. The initial step involves automating this entire process through Precog’s AI-powered solution. Precog not only automates but also manages updates to applications via change data capture for an organization’s data warehouse. By connecting all these data sources, Precog’s tool eliminates the need for extensive data maintenance and engineering teams.

Additionally, Precog AI’s on-demand connectors provide comprehensive access to data by linking multiple data sources directly to the data warehouse. This capability is crucial as it addresses the common challenge of having incomplete data connections, which typically forces teams to manage data manually. Every SAP customer, particularly at the enterprise level, faces this challenge, and integrating AI-driven data replication can be a game changer, allowing for real-time data access and improved decision-making across HR functions like workforce planning, employee engagement, and compliance.

Precog ELT platform enhances data integration capabilities, allowing users to swiftly add diverse data sources from 2000+ APIs applications, without requiring any technical expertise. This user-friendly application is versatile, operating seamlessly across various cloud infrastructures. It ensures that tables remain updated as new data becomes available, minimizing the need for extensive IT resources and reducing the costs associated with incorporating new data into SAP Analytics Cloud. This makes it an efficient and cost-effective solution for expanding and maintaining data analytics frameworks critical for Human Capital Management.
