Technical Overview

SAP SuccessFactors Incentive Management is a cloud native solution built on a microservices architecture that consists of a combination of hyperscalers including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Amazon Web Services.

Identity Authorization Service (IAS) and Identity Provisioning Service (IPS) allow you to configure seamless integration between this and other SPM applications such as embedded analytics, and third party applications. IAS and IPS run on Microsoft Azure

  • IAS: supports user and group management and allows configurations for single sign-on.
  • IPS: provisions users from IAS to the applications or service providers, and vice-versa from applications to Identity Authentication. This provides a unified customer experience across SPM products and provides a single point of entry for user onboarding and access control.

Applications include Plan Communicator, the Pipeline, and Express Data Loader. All are hosted on a Google Cloud platform and built on a microservices architecture that uses the Kubernetes (K8s) ​ platform.

All data including staging and production data, reporting, and analytics, reside in an SAP HANA database. Access to the SAP HANA database tables and procedures is possible using the SAP WebIDE interface.

Finally, embedded analytics is an SAP Analytics Cloud application running on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
