Workday with its new 2020R1 release, has added “Compensation Assignment Plan” business object, which means that previously used “Compensation Plan Assignment Snapshot” business object will be retiring in next 18 months since the new release.
Large number of organizations relied on snapshots to extract the data though snapshot business objects had setbacks like:
- They are inflexible as any changes made to object or time context that has been applied to the data , cannot be changed without replacing the entire data set with the newer context
- They are not adaptable
- They are inaccurate
With these drawbacks and majority of raw data coming from HR systems, it is difficult to deliver accuracy. Due to all these reasons workday might have planned to retiring the Compensation Plan Assignment Snapshot and introduce the new one.
