When deploying Workday, one of the biggest churns of the entire project can be the data conversion process to migrate data from legacy systems into Workday. Organizations across industries have legacy data in a variety of unique sources and formats, and much of that data will need to be imported to Workday-specific templates that often require complex, non-traditional manipulation and formatting of the data in order to be loaded into Workday. A Workday data conversion that leverages Alteryx can reduce data conversion project timelines, improve data quality, mitigate manual errors, automate conversion workflows, improve efficiency and ultimately improve the experience of the data conversion workstream.

We are so excited Workday Rising is back in person and ready for a few action-packed days of learning, networking, and experiencing all-things Workday. Avaap has been a show sponsor or attendee since becoming a Workday partner in 2016, and while we know there will be a lot that has changed, we are confident some things will remain the same: the types of people attending Workday Rising.
Going live on Workday is an exciting accomplishment for any organization. But once the deployment team is no longer doing daily check-ins, it can be challenging to sustain the momentum of transformation. With real transformation happening after the go-live, having a plan for reinforcing and sustaining change is key to propelling your organization forward.
Changing student expectations are driving the need for transformation in higher education, yet the majority of colleges and universities are working with legacy systems that are 20 years old or older. Students today want to be able to register for classes, see their degree progress, pay their bill, accept their financial aid and many other critical student experience tasks using their mobile device.
For many higher education institutions, a cloud implementation is the largest initiative undertaken in 20 years or longer. However, a successful transformation project is more than modernizing technology. Success is measured on the level of adoption and use of the new system and takes careful planning. Bringing human resources, financial, and student systems together impacts the entire institution, and as with any widespread change, developing a robust communication strategy is vital to project success.
At the height of the pandemic, schools sent students home, forcing a sudden shift to remote learning and other interventions to keep students, faculty, and staff safe. In addition to creating a different college experience than prior generations, the pandemic highlighted greater need for colleges to demonstrate the true value of higher education from the student perspective.
When is the right time to consider Application Management Services (AMS)? The answer is different based on your organization’s goals, and where you are on your transformation journey. There are numerous benefits to extended services, especially if using a system like Workday. Here are some trends we see that drive customers to engage with a management services provider.
The amount of data created every day is staggering. According to industry sources, more than 181 zettabytes of data will be created by 2025. However, despite the abundance of data, many higher education institutions struggle with extracting value from their data. Driving value requires a culture change and a solution to make data accessible. Democratizing data, or enabling access to data for everyone across the institution, creates barrier-free access so leaders can make data-driven, effective decisions.
It’s an exciting time when a higher education institution decides to deploy Workday. A next-gen cloud ERP is transformational in and of itself, impacting how work gets done across the entire institution. Success with cloud ERP transformation depends on preparing the people leading and impacted by the change. However, getting everyone at the institution comfortable with change can be challenging. Here are some things to consider when readying your institution for a Workday project.
Digital transformation is top of mind for many higher education institutions. With pressures from boards, and an ever-changing student population, modernization is often a “make it or break it” point. With so many positive impacts of modernization, why hasn’t your institution started? If you need some help building the business case for why it’s important to modernize now, read on.
