Case Study: SAP Factory Calendar Import with HCL Workload Automation
This blog aims to show how SAP Calendar Import could be done through Workload Automation. Workload Automation as a product has ready made integration with SAP since the 90’s leveraging the SAP RFC Libraries of SAP using the SAP R/3 Batch Access Method.  Now , we would see how we can use this same access method to import Freeday Calendars or Workday Calendars from an SAP R/3 System into Workload Automation.  The r3batch access method can be invoked from TWS/methods Directory(in the older versions) or from the TWSDATA/methods directory in the Newer versions . The export can be for both Freeday Calendars as well as Workday Calendars. The below example is an export of a Freeday Calendar referenced by the Factory Calendar ID 02 exported into a text file /tmp/calendar_03.dat with the name HLI :  wauser@wa-server:/opt/wa/TWS/methods$ ./r3batch -t RSC -c S4HANAR3BW -- " -calendar_id 02 -year_from 2020 -year_to 2021 -tws_name HLI -getfreedays -filename '/tmp/calendar_03.dat' "  Tue Mar 10 09:48:58 2020  -t RSC represents that the import is for an RFC SAP Calendar.  -c CalendarName represents that the Calendar name which is imported from the specific SAP System.  -calendar_id XX denotes a 2 Character identifier of the SAP R/3 Calendar to be imported.  -year_from XXXX denotes the Start year from which to start exporting the dates.  -year_to XXXX denotes the End Year upto which you can export dates.  -getfreedays indicates that the export is for Freedays.  -filename ‘<PATH>/CalendarFileName’ indicates the name of the file to which export is to be done on the Host OS where you are issuing the command.  The exported Calendar can be viewed in the File as shown below :  wauser@wa-server:/opt/wa/TWS/methods$ cat /tmp/calendar_03.dat  $CALENDAR  HLI    ""    01/01/2020 01/04/2020 01/05/2020 01/11/2020 01/12/2020 01/18/2020 01/19/2020    01/25/2020 01/26/2020 02/01/2020 02/02/2020 02/08/2020 02/09/2020 02/15/2020    02/16/2020 02/22/2020 02/23/2020...

5 Ways an Intranet Can Drive Employee Productivity and Engagement
An intranet is a private, secure computer network that is only accessible internally (thus, the “in” in its prefix) to a company’s employees.  Intranets surfaced in tandem with the internet in the 1990s and exist as a secure alternative to the public internet network that could be used by anyone online. It can be an integral tool for enterprises looking to improve employee communication and engagement. Employment engagement is key to an organization’s success. A recent Gallup study1 said that only a third of employees are truly engaged in their work — and that organizations with higher engagement levels are not only more productive, they achieve four times higher earnings per share growth.  An intranet platform provides enterprises with useful collaboration tools that can open up dialogue among co-workers while streamlining certain processes within the organization as a whole. A good one also serves as a vital tool for sharing HR and other information, as well as providing operational and computer services within an organization. Let’s look at five ways the intranet can boost productivity in the workplace.   Improved Communication  Not only can it act as a direct link between staff from all departments within a sprawling organizational flow chart, it can host blogs and forums that provide employees with a unique outlet to collaborate. An intranet network can allow employees to communicate in creative and empowering ways that might not otherwise occur, promoting a much-needed sense of community. Given the way the world has moved more toward remote work, this is more important than ever.   Intranets can have communities and discussion boards, so that instead of employees having to sift through an unwieldy company directory to find another staff member, they can easily use the intranet to connect with them and quickly enhance the work they are doing.   Additionally, an intranet network can distribute company updates, alerts and action items efficiently to everyone, saving time and streamlining internal communications.  Centralized File Storage and Comprehensive Search ...
