Create reliable, meaningful and authentic test data for SAP SuccessFactors and SAP ERP HCM

Accenture Clone and Test for Cloud

1 of 2
Today, data protection and data quality are top priorities
for many HR professionals. In the last few years, tighter
data protection regulations have reminded organizations
that the protection of personal data is vital for business
performance—and it could be costly to think otherwise.
Typically, HR professionals manage a multi-system landscape.
When it comes to testing or regression testing, they need to
create realistic and consistent test data in a safe and secure
manner. The most common option to update test environments
is performing an SAP SuccessFactors’ Instance Refresh—often
a copy of the productive environment.
In addition, many organizations are opting for a core hybrid
deployment model with Personnel Administration (PA) and
Organizational Management (OM) data in SAP SuccessFactors
while e.g. Payroll remains in SAP ERP HCM or in SAP
SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. In this scenario,
the SAP ERP HCM or SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
Payroll (SAP EC Payroll) test systems must be updated
separately. As data access for testing environments typically
has lower authorization controls, there is a risk that sensitive
employee data is left vulnerable and exposed.
Accenture Clone and Test for Cloud can be used in many
different scenarios. HR teams can take advantage of features
such as:
• Anonymize data in place: Scramble sensitive data in
Quality Assurance systems (QA) after an Instance Refresh
where the QA instance is an exact copy of production.
• Replicate production errors: Copy individual employees
with reported errors from production and scramble
sensitive fields to replicate production issues in QA.
• Create test data: Create a test data pool matching your
test data strategy by copying and anonymizing a subset of
employees from production to QA.
• Maximize test data on new sandbox instances: Create
additional test data by multiplying existing test data within
one instance to enrich the available data set.
• Consistent data in a hybrid landscape: Scramble
data in a comprehensive and consistent manner accross
SAP SuccessFactors and SAP ERP/SAP EC Payroll at the
same time.
How can you benefit?
The SAP SuccessFactors’ extension anonymizes HR data
securely and safely, while at the same time keeping it in a
consistent and meaningful manner. It ensures personally
identifiable information (PII) is not disclosed in non-productive
environments. Having realistic test data helps to improve the
quality and efficiency of regression testing and reduces the
number of errors in the software before it goes into production.
Accenture Clone and Test for Cloud helps HR teams to:
• Enhance productivity: Reduce the time it takes to
create test data and simplify testing for more productive
HR operations.
• Simplify hybrid anonymization: Ensure a consistent test
data set with just one action by providing a production-like
setup in a hybrid landscape and enable end-to-end testing,
including payroll. Working with realistic test data increases
the test quality and saves time in the testing phase.
• Ease of use: Predefined anonymization rules simplify set
up and run. Copy your data in four steps with an easy-to-
use product. No need for highly skilled IT support.
• Increase compliance: Protect confidential employee
information during testing and comply with data protection
regulations.
• Reliability and safety: Users can only copy data for which
they have a valid authorization profile. The solution offers
the ability to anonymize data without having to leave the
SAP landscape and protects sensitive personnel data from
unauthorized access. The extension is backed by the
Accenture strong security framework.
Create reliable, meaningful and authentic
test data for SAP SuccessFactors and
SAP ERP HCM
Accenture Clone
and Test for Cloud
Where it works?
A leading telecommunications provider uses Accenture
Clone and Test for Cloud for test data generation and data
scrambling. With more than 25 countries to manage and
many different projects with different initiatives and timelines,
it was important for them to be able to take a portion of its
data create good quality tests.
The company started by analyzing its requirements, designing
the rule set and then working closely with Accenture to
configure the Accenture Clone and Test for Cloud. They then
moved into the user acceptance phase with different teams
around the world to verify that local data protection
requirements were met.
After go-live, the team used the SAP Instance Refresh to
copy the data from production to QA. The software function
“Anonymize in Place” was then used to scramble the data
using the rules defined in the anonymization set. As the
company´s HR team repeats this activity at regular intervals,
its test environment remains up to date. This allows the
customer to test new SF releases easily.
The telecommunications provider valued the effective
collaboration with Accenture and being part of Accenture’s
Customer Success Assurance program, which eased the
client’s adoption of the solution.
