EIM provides impressive graphical representation of plan elements, such as a canned report, within the system. The graphical representation provides iconic access to functions within the element, such as a form or data set, to quickly modify a given process. At times, we did get lost within a data view, however, because most forms rely on similar layouts and elements.

Most of the training required will be getting those unfamiliar with aspects of building compensation plans, such as the IT staff, up to speed on how application elements relate to managing compensation.

Security management is also good: The granularity in roles and permissions should keep confidential compensation information confidential.

EIM runs on Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition application servers and requires a SQL database on the back end. On the client side, some of the component applications, such as the earnings tool, require a Java viewer to view charts, graphs and tables.
