What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost may differ from region to region, but here in the Middle East, you pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. SAP HCM is on-prem.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Workday is an expensive solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to make sure that they understand their requirements. They must have detailed process requirements, and if they see some gaps, they should identify those gaps up front. Workday can be flexible in this regard, so… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't know if they are still providing licenses or if they have suspended licenses.
