HUB Consulting Patch Analyzer
Save time when adopting new SAP ERP Human Capital Management (HCM) Support Packages with this component of the HUB Consulting HR Productivity Suite.

Many organizations face the problem of having no practical way of economically analyzing patches. At regular intervals SAP provides its customers with upgrades in the form of SAP ERP HCM Support Packages (patches). The SAP systems manager then has two options: either accept the upgrade, without really knowing the full effect of the changes, or compare the objects that have been delivered with the upgrade—the preferred, but more complex option.

The HUB Consulting Patch Analyzer is an innovative solution to this common problem, a specially developed software application that optimizes the upgrade process and minimizes the workload for the SAP system manager. The software simplifies the choice, showing all the newly delivered objects (tables, reports, cycles, schemas) that are relevant for SAP ERP HCM. Using intelligent filters it reduces the upgrade to a selective results list for objects and pieces, and can summarize several patches in one single, country-specific, compressed item list. It requires only one transport for the subsequent system, it divides and shares optimally and has a comprehensive function for upgrades.
The HUB Consulting Patch Analyzer enables analysis of all types of SAP transports and estimate the process run times. This functionality allows SAP managers to accurately schedule upgrades.

Benefits:
- Time savings by compressing patches and reducing comparisons to a minimum.
- Easy to use intuitive user-interfaces.
- Extensive selection sets for the creation of country or subject-specific item lists.
- Detailed listing of the selected objects.
- Overview of the copied objects.
- Ability to accurately plan upgrade times.

Effective HR

HUB Consulting has spent many years refining this industry standard model, flexibly tailoring components to each organization's business needs. Additional insights are based on deep industry expertise and understanding of how HR works with other critical business processes.

Equally important, HUB Consulting has developed unique assets and proven tools to help organizations determine where to start and how to sustain a transformation, what skills are required, where to get them, how to engage the business itself in the transformation and how HR can best improve workforce performance as a result of its transformation.

A case in point: the capabilities HUB Consulting offers to transform the performance of specific workforces. For the IT workforce, for instance, HUB Consulting's detailed toolset enables the HR Business Partner and the CIO to gain insights into current and future capability requirements. These insights inform immediate and longer-term strategies and transform workforce performance through targeted interventions, such as recruitment, scheduling and sourcing, succession planning, performance management and targeted reallocation of training budgets.

Another example: the HUB Consulting Human Capital Development Framework. This innovative analytic tool enables organizations to better assess their core human capital capabilities (such as leadership, adaptability and talent management), identify the human capital processes that will likely improve them, and then prescribe the specific process interventions that will improve the capabilities as well as overall business performance.

With baseline information in hand, HUB Consulting works closely with organizations to plan, design and deliver HR performance analysis for sustainable effectiveness. To build the strategic capabilities of Business Partners, for example, HUB Consulting employs a comprehensive and proven methodology. This human resource performance evaluation defines process models; details HR competencies, roles, responsibilities and career paths; delineates organizational structure and headcount; and describes the change management programs required to transform the workforce and effect cultural change.
