What is the impact of UTC Migration on SuccessFactors Compensation Management?


SAP SuccessFactors Compensation Management


  • SAP SuccessFactors is standardizing the use of time across all our systems (applications, databases, and servers) across all our data centers in our continuous effort to align with the cloud industry's best practices for improved data integrity, security and scalability. SAP SuccessFactors is moving its platform to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
  • SAP SuccessFactors offers global services and currently supports multiple time zones. We must have a consistent, reliable time zone across all geographies to ensure that applications behave the same regardless of physical location. UTC is a natural choice given our global customer base, and UTC is not subject to Daylight Saving Time.
  • After migration:
    • The original server time zone will be used to set the Tenant Preferred Time Zone(TPT) (For more information on TPT, refer KBA: 3319478 - Perferred Tenant Time Zone )
    • For customers already running on a server in UTC the Tenant Preferred Time Zone(TPT) will be set to UTC.

The confirmed schedule can be found in KBA 3101935


Below are list all the known areas that will have some change due to UTC Migration in Compensation. In case of any deviations to the same, please contact support.

  • UI: Date Information for non-floating fields format has changed to show UTC offset w.r.t TPT​

    Eg: Last Modification Date on Lookup Tables​

  • Added some new logical columns in SAC and Ad-hoc reports, which need customers to take actions to adopt them, the guidance will be centrally described in Reporting: 3101935
