Flexible solution with many valuable features like Business Processes, Human Capital Management, and Financial Management

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant. I configure and consult with clients who ask me about solutions, how to use products, how to help them to implement the solutions, how to improve the deployment and performance, and how to give them the solutions they need. Workday is one of the better solutions we can provide.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all."
  • "It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored."

What other advice do I have?

I've been in the HR/Payroll product domain for about 25 years, so I've been involved in the development of Ceridian's applications and other companies as well. I know a lot about other products and competitors. Workday is a bit different, but I love it. You get used to it. It is like back-in-the-day when HR and the payroll system used to be the determining factor in whether you got to have a company laptop or not. One piece of advice to anyone considering this as a solution is to implement it properly. Spend the time and do it right the first time. Don't rush the requirements, don't skip steps…

What is our primary use case?

We use SAP HCM to store and manage organizational data such as OM data, job profile data, solution data, HC data, and call center data. Currently, we are in the process of migrating our SAP HR system to Workday. This is the process that I am involved in at the moment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."
  • "This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

SAP HCM is a solution that I recommend. It is a good product, but if it were more configurable and you did not need to develop as much code then it would be better. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
