Strengthen the Quality of Your HR Master Data

The foundation for well-functioning, automated HR processes, on-premise and in the cloud.

Achieve Truly Excellent HR Data Quality with guardian

Lack of structure and maintenance of HR master data are posing significant challenges for HR, today. What’s urgently needed is a single source of truth.

Different versions of the truth across global offices, systems and data elements will undermine the ability to make the right business decisions and create optimal processes.

Targeted efforts ensure higher quality in master data across national borders, systems and data elements. This forms the basis for strengthening key HR activities, optimizing processes and making well-founded strategic decisions.

From Static Master Data to Continuous Data Quality Improvement guardian is a tailored software tool for your HR function. The solution runs on the SAP Cloud Platform and is a module that can be used together with SAP SuccessFactors, the world’s leading human capital management software. guardian maps and combines all relevant data elements and metadata to assure quality and validate master data across national and decentralized systems – from payroll systems to telephone systems. This way, guardian improves data quality and creates a solid knowledge foundation for a broad range of HR activities.

Our solution ensures the verification of all master data and the application of GDPR-compliant HR policies. Moreover, guardian integrates data from all sources ranging from Microsoft Excel to Oracle Database.

Get the Full Value of Your HR Data

Our solution, guardian, provides a fast and easy way for master data managers to monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize HR master data.

Get the Most Out of Your HR Data with guardian

Consolidate Data from Multiple Sources with guardian guardian from NTT DATA Business Solutions is directly embedded into your master HR data system. Running on the SAP Cloud Platform, guardian is compatible with SAP SuccessFactors and works with SAP Fiori. The SAP Fiori launchpad acts as a portal, allowing you to import and export data. You can import records from external sources such as legacy systems, SAP SuccessFactors, or spreadsheets, and export employee data reports. This consolidation of data from multiple sources makes it much easier to align all parties and maintain an overview of all employee information.

Gain Real-Time Access to Data with a Systematic Approach

With guardian you will regularly store information in the cloud. Your administrators in all departments gain real-time access to the latest data. Data quality can be assessed via strategic dashboards. The clear visual representation makes it much easier for you to monitor activities. You can identify where processes are breaking down or where data needs to be cleansed using an automated data cleansing function. The cleansed data can then be transferred back into your master data system according to rules you define.

Finally, GDPR Compliance in HR with guardian

Better transparency and quality of data is an essential part of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance. However, the most important aim of the regulation is inherent in its name: data protection. As part of the guardian solution, you are able to utilize NTT DATA Business Solutions’ own set of predefined rules and security policies or set your own – depending on your licensing. These rules and presets ensure that all data in the HR system is compliant with your company-specific rules and with the GDPR, too.

Benefit from the Highest Security Level

As guardian is a solution based on the SAP Cloud Platform, users receive security from two trusted sources. In addition to the integrated security services of the SAP Cloud Platform, any data imported into a system must pass through a secure file transfer protocol (SFTP) server. This encrypts data during transit, ensuring utmost protection. Overall, you can rest assured that with the guardian, the highest level of data quality and security is maintained. This leaves you more time to concentrate on the personal side of employee management. guardian: How We Can Support You
