Like yours, many organizations are moving to the cloud for their HRMS solutions. In fact, plans for 2015 indicate that SaaS deployments, predicted to be 58%, will overtake licensed deployments. Also like you, many of these companies are selecting Workday as their SaaS option. But when so much focus is placed on which technology to select, the broader HR and technology operating model can become an afterthought.
You know you need to start planning as early as possible for the ongoing support of Workday, but you still have some questions—for example:
Future-State Delivery Model
How do I provide service to my employees after deployment?
How do I bring together the rest of my systems and data that are not being converted to Workday?
Is my delivery model going to work globally?
When it comes to integrated talent management, picking the right technology solution can seem the most daunting part of the initiative. Despite the work it takes to get to the decision point, implementation and overhaul of existing processes can present a host of new challenges. Being future-minded in your transformation is paramount for ensuring successful deployment and operation.
