Methods, systems, and apparatuses, including computer program products, for implementing a software architecture design for a software application implementing payroll processing. The application is structured as multiple process components interacting with each other through service interfaces, and multiple service operations, each being implemented for a respective process component. The process components include a Payroll Processing process component, an Employee Payroll Administration process component, an Accounting process component, and a Payroll Processing at Provider process component.
1. A computer program product comprising application software encoded on a tangible machine-readable information carrier, the application software being structured as process components interacting with each other through service interfaces, the software comprising:a plurality of process components, each of the process components being a package of software implementing a respective and distinct business process, the plurality of process components including:a payroll processing process component that handles the execution and monitoring of regular as well as off-cycle payroll processes;an employee payroll administration process component that handles the administration of the employee specific payroll agreement and the overview of completed and planned payroll processes;an accounting process component that represents relevant business transactions for valuation and profitability analysis; anda plurality of service interface operations, each service interface operation being implemented for a respective process component, the operations comprising inbound and outbound operations, the outbound operation for a first process component being operable to send a message to a second process component of the plurality of process components, the second process component having an inbound operation for receiving the message, the passing of messages between an inbound and an outbound operation defining a message-based pair-wise interaction between the respective process components of the respective operations, the pair-wise interactions between pairs of the process components including interactions between:the payroll processing process component and the accounting process component; andthe payroll processing process component and the employee payroll administration process component.
2. The product of claim 1, wherein:the plurality of process components further include a payroll processing at provider process component that handles the execution and monitoring of regular as well as off-cycle payroll processes, including completeness checks of payroll relevant employee data, the payroll run itself, verification of the results, and the transfer to financial accounting; andthe pair-wise interactions between pairs of the process components further include interactions between:the payroll processing at provider process component and the payroll processing process component; andthe payroll processing process component and the payroll processing at provider process...
