Introduction to Workday
Workday was founded in 2005 as a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (Saas) model. It includes a full suite of software products for human capital management, payroll, finance and student (recruitment, admissions, academics & curriculum, registration, student records, and financial aid). Workday corporate customers include Adobe, Bank of America, Denny's, Johnson & Johnson, NetFlix, LinkedIn, Rolls-Royce, Sony, Toyota, Visa and Warner Music Group.
The system's ease of use through an icon-based design that is built as a mobile-first product can be used on any smartphone, tablet or computer. The Workday interface delivers services over the Internet, and all data is securely stored in the cloud, eliminating the need for millions of dollars in local infrastructure to store and protect the College's most valuable data.
Workday's software approach is to use pre-designed business processes built for efficiency that can be configured to meet College-specific needs. All organizations that use Workday products are on the same single line of programming code, maintained by Workday. This means that the costly and time-consuming system version upgrades are eliminated in Workday. The Workday Online Community Forum allows College users to contribute ideas on product enhancement that keeps Workday current so that the College provides the student with the best possible technology-supported service.
Workday also provides advanced analytics and reporting capabilities to allow the College to more easily access data and reports for planning and decision support.
