core hcm overview
Core HCM Overview
  • Workday
    • Still flying high, sales have tripled, successful IPO, evolving to cloud-based ERP
    • Novelty is wearing off; you either love or hate the UI (where’s the menu?)
    • A process-driven HCM does not work for all cultures
    • Intuitive??
    • Not making inroads outside the U.S. as quickly as hoped, going back to the lab for some development
    • Functionality gap: no recruiting, learning or open analytics solutions
    • Speculation: Social tools may come from integration with
core hcm overview1
Core HCM Overview
  • SAP
    • Strong global product especially for payroll and advanced analytics
    • SuccessFactors acquisition considered necessary and the only way they could enter the SaaS/cloud market
    • CW: Integration, if it ever happens, is years away
  • Dayforce
    • Ceridian’s cloud strategy
    • North American functionality, global in the plan
    • Quick development cycle
    • Very strong time capture (for hourly population) and payroll product included
core hcm overview2
Core HCM Overview
  • Oracle
    • PSFT still has a very loyal base and is still being sold but on a small scale
    • EBS still popular in Europe and selling
    • Fusion is real, has customers (on the small side)
      • Has a way to go to be considered a robust HCM
      • Does have recruiting, learning, social networking, predictive analytics
      • Coexists with existing PSFT and Oracle EBS solutions
      • Techstack requirements are monstrous for on-premise installations – very high TCO
    • Investing heavily in Taleo, integration with Taleo (primarily with Fusion) and analytics
    • CW: will be a very credible cloud-based vendor

Beware the numbers and client list spin: e.g. Peugeot licensed PSFT in 2006 but have never implemented it.

pain points
Pain Points
  • SaaS
    • Frequent releases (Workday every 4 months)
    • Some clients can’t keep up with that pace
  • On-premise
    • The sting of de-support
    • Forced off of a popular release for one less so
  • I.T.
    • Web services knowledge gap even at the large enterprise level
    • SOA components needed for enterprise scale delivery – difficult and training is needed
core hcm
Core HCM
  • ERP-type systems we rely on to run our business (financial, manufacturing, CRM, HR)
  • Must be ‘correct’ and ‘integrated’ so all data is consistent
  • Designed for people that have no choice but to use them
  • Systems used directly by employees for employees (email, collaboration, social networking and learning)
  • They engage employees
  • Organize, shape and drive the business, people and process
  • Complement systems of record, don’t replace them

Systems of Record

Systems of Engagement

sor vs soe
  • SOR – biggest problem with LMS, performance management or talent system is that employees don’t use it.
  • Adoption factor is very low, leads to inconsistent data and suboptimized promises
  • Transition from SOR to SOE – newer apps like Fusion, Silk Road, Workday look and act very different
  • Towers Watson survey of 628 HR Orgs – why consider Workday?
    • 58% said because of its user interface (the engagement factor)

sor vs soe1
  • Systems of Record were designed in the last century, largely defined by ‘time and motion’ principles
  • Employees were asked to bring their bodies to work and leave their brains at home
  • Three primary factors of innovation and competition are time, process and collaboration – addressed by Systems of Engagement
  • New era of internet, mobile, Cloud, etc asks employees to bring their brains to work andleave their bodies at home.

the big data challenge
The Big Data Challenge
  • Avalanche of data from disparate sources
  • Need to harness this data and use it to produce more meaningful results
  • Problems in all functional areas
    • Recruiting: measure time to hire but not quality of hire
    • Benefits: measure what employees choose but not whether the choices are understood or if plans are well-utilized
    • Learning/training – inadequate measures of competency, mastery and subsequent usage in the workplace

the big data challenge1
The Big Data Challenge
  • 435 business and I.T. execs surveyed – only 37% familiar with concept
  • Need for ‘data scientists’/ specialized Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS)
  • Typical uses
    • Retail – buying trends of customers
    • Healthcare – plan and claim data
    • Military
  • Not every company can or should use Big Data

  • On its way to becoming a standard
  • Workday has legitimized the use of the cloud for ERP applications. Created an upsurge of replacement discussions globally
  • Almost all talent management vendors are in the cloud now
