Workday Human Capital Management is well suited for day-to-day human resources tasks as well a future planning regarding goals, quarterly check-ins, and career growths. It is useful to have multiple features and available tasks in the overall dashboard. It is helpful that learning paths and courses are also integrated in the platform.

Pros

SAP Access Control

  • Safeguards private company information.
  • Helps every department of our organization to prevent and detect risks.
  • Help reduce data access from unauthorized users.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workday HCM

  • Groups employees in management hierarchies and creates Org Charts that are easy to navigate and allow for visualizing management chains regardless of employee locations
  • Intuitive and easy to use. The Workday search functionality works very much like Google; one can search for anything that they have access to in the database and drill down into the various details. All information is connected through hyperlinks and users can easily keep digging into the details for as far as their security access would take them.
  • Tasks such as to do, review or approve items are sent to the user's Workday Inbox, very much resembling email. Notifications about outstanding "to do" items are also sent to each the user's work email address on a daily basis.

Cons

SAP Access Control

  • SAP products in general are not user friendly. SAP Access Control is no exception to this. Even though the use of the Netweaver interface is a big improvement on user interaction, the presentation of big amounts of data could be improved (list of roles, information of values assigned to authorization object fields, and the like).
  • Regarding functionality on Access Control, the product is about complete; I cannot think of anything else to add to it.
Luis Cruz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workday HCM

  • The web interface is awful
  • Terrible, terrible, UI. No modern features like auto-save. I can't count the times I have lost work.
  • Their UX team (if it even exists) must be aliens, because I can't see how humans would have come up with the UI conventions they have.
  • Who creates a website application where you can't open stuff in multiple browser windows and tabs easily?

It is work to make one system the source of truth for our data, but now that it is done, there is less work involved in staying on this path. This means for us that maintaining and/or implementing new modules like performance, finance, talent, etc. is simple. It's a no-brainer

This is a great tool for a medium to large sized company. SAP Access Control requires a great deal of SAP knowledge to use, but it is certainly information that can be learned. Their customer support is wonderful and easy to work with. The overall usability is great. I greatly recommend this software.

Workday's on a great path in terms of user experience. Their goals is to deliver a use experience that doesn't require training or instruction, like Amazon on the consumer side for example. That's hard to do when you're talking about complex business processes and important and sensitive employee information, but they're doing it well

In 2014, Workday has changed the update process. There will be two updates a year; the updates will be delivered to customers typically in a 24 hour window during these two weekends a year. They also keep the Community up-to-date about any planned outages, etc. There is weekly scheduled downtime on Friday night.

From my perspective, the system runs like a well oiled machine and I have not had any issues with customers complaining about speed. If a report is taking long to run, the report can run in the background and you can go about your business. For larger enterprises, there is additional space and machines to process the application in what Workday refers to it as Extended Configuration Tenant

This product fulfills all our requirements. We can use this for user management, role management, risk analysis, business role management, workflow management. Initial configuration takes a lot of effort. Otherwise it's a great product for the end user. SAP Access Control tool performance needs improvement, sometimes it slows down the processing time for requests.

Workday is still learning about the needs of higher education. I have seen rapid improvement in support and knowledge over the last year so am confident this will continue to improve. Overall however, I have found the Support Team to be extremely responsive and Workday offers the advantage of having support across several timezones so that we never wait more than a few hours for a response.

Some training is offered online. Cost is per-person. This also gets quite expensive. Training doesn’t follow a logical path A to B. Starts in middle. When you try to do it afterwards at your desk, difficult.
• Training scenarios are not very real

I have done for report writing and mass imports (EIBs). They give materials and you run through examples, i.e. you don’t just watch them do tasks, so that is helpful. Training is expensive – a single reporting writing class is $600 per person for virtual training

It was implemented before my joining the company. At my last company, we used Workday professional services.

Based upon my experience at my last company, I would rate the implementation experience an 8/10. There are different ways to set things up and we had different people telling us different things. It set us back a couple of times.

Regarding configuration advice, we could set things up where every manager has supervisory organizations, or have it financially based i.e. aligned to cost center/department. We chose the individual manager path and I think we should have chosen a department route. Going down the individual manager path, to maintain the information, we have to inactivate a supervisory org whenever a manager changes/leaves.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Access Control

SAP Access Control provides end to end functionality. Designing and building of SAP roles, publishing the roles, ordering the access, and finally compliant user provisioning. While another solution has a dependency on SAP access control to ensure the compliant user provisioning. The only benefit of other solutions is that they can be used for non-SAP target systems as well. Further in SAP Access Control, the connection setup for new target application is very easy and fast.

I believe [Workday Human Capital Management] is probably the industry benchmark of excellence and has features that can easily be customized to meet the needs of organizations. It has strong and knowledgeable account teams that work closely with customers to develop the most efficient solutions. I believe oracle systems come the closest but they aren't smart and the technology still needs to be developed further.

Workday has released Financials and is continuing to develop it's Human Capital Management footprint with the addition of Workday Recruiting. I think customers will find that is easy to add on additional functionality in the system.Workday does make it easy for customers to make changes without relying on IT resources. The Business Process framework is a visual tool that allows functional resources to make changes and see the flow of the transaction

Return on Investment

SAP Access Control

  • Less time spent on user access management
  • More time to devote to other projects
  • More confidence in access and data security
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workday HCM

  • Positive ROI, we were one of the first organizations that went with Workday HCM, and we received numerous discounts. Cloud systems are the way to go and we feel the system is stable for our growing work force.
  • The user conferences have been helpful to network and learn more deepness in the modules and functionality.
  • Right off the bat, our implementation costs were lower than budgeted and we had less 'billing' surprises.
