Application: Simulation and prediction platform services in integrated system environment (Patent ID: US20240062313A1)

The patent filed by SAP SE describes a computer-implemented method for calculating an available balance amount for allocation to a user requesting an advance payment associated with a specific period of time. The method involves integrating a cloud platform service with multiple systems storing data for employees of an enterprise, identifying the user as an employee, and calculating the available balance amount based on data associated with the requested period of time, including work tasks and compensation. The calculation is done according to predefined rules at a real-time estimation engine and the result is provided through a user interface.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims for a computer-readable medium and a system implementing the method described in the abstract. These claims detail additional aspects such as determining compensation data for the user, handling incomplete data by predicting missing information, instantiating the cloud platform service in a cloud infrastructure environment, and executing payroll simulations based on stored and predicted data. The system also involves accessing employee records, defining employees as objects in the systems, and utilizing a prediction model to generate prediction data for payroll simulations. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive method and system for efficiently calculating and providing an available balance amount for users requesting advance payments within an enterprise setting.
