Likelihood to Recommend
Azul Systems, Inc
If you want some low cost JDK provider where you need the frequent updates as well, you can go ahead for Azul Zing instead of OpenJDK. But if budget is not a concern, I would recommend going for some well known company such as Oracle. Also if you are using Azul for production, make sure to use it for Dev ENV too so as to reproduce issues.

Workday
Workday Cloud Platform is primarily suited for large organizations with individual teams handling various Human Resource functions. Since the data is scattered, Workday is an excellent tool to bring all the data to a single platform and then use Machine Learning techniques to generate both descriptive and prescriptive insights to make sure the skillset portfolio remains updated.

Workday
  • The platform is quite intuitive to use, even a new user would find be comfortable navigating through different options.
  • As a lead, you can easily track the performance, leaves, and any recruitment in process.
  • The objective setting process and providing your inputs onto the same is pretty organized, easily accessible. Additionally, one can easily navigate through the historical objectives and performance feedback whenever one wants to review.

Workday
  • Glitching - Occasionally the app will glitch and shut down completely. Sometimes it can be when you are in the middle of something timely, causing frustration and issues. I haven't seen this happen as often recently.
  • Inbox - It would be helpful if Workday developed a feature to organize inbox tasks based off what department they are for, what the task is and so on. So you can quickly filter or look for the task at hand.
  • Candidate Tracking - Hiring managers throughout the company work with the HR department to track candidates, schedule interviews and so on. Workday does not always have the best interface in this regard. It could use a feedback feature for hiring managers to be able to be more involved, as they can be on other platforms.

Simple HR tasks are easy to complete (ex, hours, booking time off). It has a clean UI, but not sure we're using the full functionality as only certain tiles are shown.

Azul has better JVM garbage collection on machines with huge amounts of memory that the OSS version of Java doesn't handle

Prime support has been responsive in helping us tune our JVM parameters and diagnose any lingering Java resource issues.

Workday
I give it this rating because, in its current capacity, it does not meet all of Human Resources' needs - which can cost the organization by having to rely on multiple platforms to do what one might be able to do. Again, as mentioned, it works great for what most employees require of it

Alternatives Considered
Azul Systems, Inc
Oracle was costlier whereas OpenJDK had less frequent updates. Azul was average of both of them, so it was choosen.

Workday
Workday is an incomplete product, by this I mean it must work alongside other products and does not work by itself. Trying to make several different products work smoothly together becomes very challenging. As compared to ADP products, when purchased all together work very well all together. Also, ADP has extensive Training programs and extensive Customer Support. So ADP's products are far superior to Workday's products in my opinion.
