Identifying forecasting run in an Absence Management formula

It is a common requirement to apply different entitlement rules during forecasting,  in comparison to the entitlement rules that need to be applied during the actual absence calculations. This requires a method to identify whether a certain formula is being invoked by the forecasting process or not. Use the "TXN ID" or "TXN RSLT OPTN" system variables to identify whether the run is a forecasting run or not. These system elements are available only during forecasting and their values can be effectively used in this scenario.

The big news: SAP to acquire SuccessFactors

This is one heck of a merger - SAP to acquire SuccessFactors. With one single move, SAP has moved as a strong vendor in the cloud based HCM market. Follow the news here:

One of the most exciting piece of news I've read in the HCM space of late. This just goes on to highlight the importance people are placing on HCM software and more importantly, the technical shift that is happening in the market at present. Another strong indicator of a cloud based future for HCM software. Really interested in the move by Oracle now! Will they stick on with Fusion alone or go ahead to 'fuse' with another HCM cloud vendor in the market? Workday may be?!!
