22.What would say are the weak spots of Employee Central?

Ans: There are some features that I believe have the potential for improvement and can further enhance the value of Employee Central. The first one is when Foundation Object data changes (for example, the head of a department changes), the data must propagate more seamlessly to the employee Job Information record. The other main area of improvement that I have already mentioned is data imports. The transport mechanism from the Test instance to the Production instance has seen enhancements, but it needs to be further improved as that will have a significant impact on the implementation timeline.

23.  If you could give one piece of key advice to a customer who is going to implement Employee Central, what would it be?

Ans:My one key piece of advice to customers would be to utilize the Employee Central implementation as an opportunity to re-examine the ways that they do business. The fact that the solution is so flexible and agile is an avenue for organizations to adopt the product design to build a solution that turns them into an agile organization and hence better suited to thrive in a competitive landscape.
Often many customers do not have forward-looking or streamlined business processes and lack an overall and well-defined strategy for core HR and Talent solutions. It helps to get a head start on that organizational strategy as then it is relatively easy to achieve a high ROI. It is also important to identify your champions of the cloud early on within the organization as these are the folks that will drive the adoption of the newly implemented software working in tandem with your implementation partner.
Employee Central is an excellent excuse to transform the way that HR and the business have been operating and move from transactional to strategic integrated HCM.

Ans: All the records of the employee are present in the succession data model. This type of succession data model constructs the fields both internal(information related to employment) and external(personal information of employee) works.

25.If Success Factors are important – how do you pick the right ones?

Ans:Use the job analysis information and advice from your HRO and other managers with the same roles to determine the 3-5 core success factors. It will become easier with practice.

26. How do you set a field so the user can edit it?

Ans: Set the attribute visible=”both”

27.What does the Corporate Data Model define?

My vision is to build a truly integrated HR in the cloud. A truly integrated HR is the key enabler for Organizations to maximize their business outcomes.

29.what is Preventive and predictive maintenance?

Ans: It Allows maintenance to be carried out at predetermined intervals, or to other prescribed criteria.

30.Can we ‘get rid’ of people by using success factors?
