HCM Software and The Health Pandemic of 2020
"A client we worked with to implement an HCM initiative has launched on online Covivid-19 response plan that employees can access daily (or whenever they want to) via their HCM system. This flexible database contains a multitude of information from travel advisories to how to handle exposure. With the evolving virus situation, it is updated frequently and > 75% of employees access it daily. This client is currently enhancing their system to contain an online chat feature, which is a clever use of technology to help manage and foster communication during difficult times."

The New Realities of HCM and ERP Implementations in a Changing World
"We expect to see more companies and teams that are expected to work smarter (and harder too, by the way), while also being selective with limited resources. This is because most organizations tend to fall into one or more of three categories:

Those that are severely disrupted by employee health concerns, remote workforces, lost productivity, and employee personal issues spilling into the workplace
Those that are forced to shed human capital due to an economic downturn and decreased customer demand
Those that are experiencing unprecedented surges in customer demand due to the industries they are in, such as food, grocery, consumer staples, healthcare, government, defense, and others"

How to Estimate ERP and HCM Implementation Time
"Magnitude of change. The bigger the change this project will mean for your company, the longer it will take.
Number of locations. A higher number of locations requires more time to accommodate different operations.
Number of countries. A higher number of countries in scope requires more time to accommodate different cultures.
Complexity of your operations. The more complex and unique your operations, the longer it will take you to implement.
Your internal competencies. The less implementation experience and capabilities your internal team has, the longer the project will likely take."

ERP vs. HCM Implementations: Which is the Better Bet?
"HCM may affect a larger population of people than an ERP or CRM implementation, but they can actually deliver more value with less risk. For industries that spend too much on employee retention and morale-related issues each year, better performance management, learning and development, and other human capital capabilities can deliver much higher business benefits than having more efficient accounting or inventory management competencies."

What is an Agile ERP Implementation?
"ile is not an excuse to do less work. The real lesson here is that your project methodology is not the key determinant of success. Setting clear project objectives, defining effective organizational communication methods, and committing to an engaged and strong project governance structure are all crucial regardless of how you approach your project."

A Perspective on Data Migration in Digital Transformation
"The system integrator is typically only tasked with the main ERP system, therefore isn’t incentivized to ensure downstream systems/reporting are able to properly process the outputs. Many careers have been derailed when a CEO, COO or CFO is unpleasantly surprised by the poor condition of data appearing in their new executive dashboards and reports. Proper data readiness planning can significantly reduce post-project surprises."

Bridging the Gap Between ERP Implementation vs. Business Transformation
"Organizations generally struggle to unlock the value of their ERP implementations or digital transformations to their full potential. For many, it can be hard to deliver much more than mere incremental improvements as part of their transformations.

This problem isn’t necessarily due to lack of software capabilities. Though many are lacking the maturity of past legacy solutions, the current leading ERP and HCM systems such as S/4HANA, Oracle Cloud ERP, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and others contain advanced technologies that many will simply never be able to consume."

Fatal Flaws in the Digital Transformation and ERP Software Industry
"This is the first time in my career where all the major players are releasing relatively new and unproven flagship products. For example, while SAP spent roughly 20 years fine-tuning its R/3 product, S/4HANA has only been on the market for a few years. The number of customers successfully using this new product is relatively small. The kinks haven’t been worked out and the breadth of functionality simply isn’t there yet.

The same is true for Oracle ERP Cloud, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and other top ERP systems. In some cases, the vendors have rewritten the software from scratch (example: Oracle). In other cases, they have pieced together the “best of” older flagship products (example: Microsoft). In most cases, these products are not as ready for prime time as their predecessors were."

Progress Report - Workday Innovation Summit 2019 - Workday doubles down on AI and Skills
"On the concern side, Workday’s move to the public cloud is … slow. When asked, Bhusri foresees probably two more hardware refresh cycles in the Workday data centers… translated, that means he sees full public cloud 4-6 years out. Operationally that maybe fine, but from the AI / ML perspective obstructional to implement any deep learning on customer data. Workday is to a certain point lucky, as HR and Finance are somewhat moving slower than e.g. Commerce, IoT etc. I also missed (at least a demo refresh / update) on voice as the new UX, as this is most transformation for the sporadic nature of HCM interactions.

5 Commercial Terms to Address in Workday Negotiations
"In an ideal world, you could obtain a current and complete price list, but Workday keeps this close to the vest and will not readily provide an itemized price list. However, they have provided customers with some level of visibility into list prices, so it is worth pressing Workday to at least provide the list price for each product listed in their proposal.

Ambiguous price lists are common among vendors, but unlike many other ERP providers, Workday’s list prices can vary per product"

A different Vegas. A very different Workday.
"– I want to see a significant industry “book of record” offering. If you say you are committed to retail, I want to see a robust offering and a sizable customer base in the merchandising area. If it is insurance, show me similar around claims processing. If it is utilities, I want to see a billing engine, and one for complex asset management and maintenance. If it is healthcare, show me electronic patient records. If it is oil and gas, show me functionality their geologists consider critical."

SaaS Matters: Key Caveats for SaaS Contracting
"In these cases, enterprises should challenge their various SaaS vendors to include the ability to scale up and down as needed during the term of the Cloud subscription agreements. That means, as usage decreases, SaaS vendors should provide the customer the ability to reduce the commitment to align with actual need at that point in the term, with a corresponding reduction of the fees or a credit towards future usage."

"In the SaaS category, vendors such as have been quite successful in gaining significant market share in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) as organizations and their respective sales branches have often led with CRM to start their journey into the cloud. In the Human Capital Management (HCM) space, vendors such as Workday, SAP (through its acquisition of SuccessFactors), and Oracle (through its acquisition of Taleo) are aggressively pushing their cloud-based offerings to the market."

Big Data Analytics Not Just for the Big Guys
"Based on our experience as consumers, it is evident that these “big guys” know how to use “big data.” But what about small to midsize companies? Like large companies, they also need to better understand the market, target their best prospects, and better serve their customers. However, in the past, they have not had the computing resources to gather and store petabytes of data, nor the internal skills to analyze all that data."

Workday’s 8/24/2016 Earnings Call — Non-Financial Thoughts - by @infullbloomus
"I take a lot of teasing from my colleagues because of my emphasis on (some would say devotion to) some very specific design principles for enterprise software. One of these is interrogatory configuration. But what may have looked like foolish devotion to many is critical, in my view, to the vendor’s economics as well as to the customer’s sanity in the continuous implementation of true SaaS."

"MyPOV – Describes well what is going – Workday ‘has adopted’ IBM Cloud (likely SoftLayer) but will become the foundation for Workday’s development and test environments. Development and test environments are usually of less interest to SaaS customers, but the cost of providing, provisioning and maintaining them is a large chunk of CAPEX for any ISV / SaaS provider."

Workdaytime for a fork? - by @dealarchitect
rare to see a post digging into Workday's challenges in the public domain... "Some customers are starting to call Workday “PeopleSoft updated for the cloud”. The PeopleSoft footprint of the enterprise in the 90s was relatively small, and the enterprise has grown so much bigger since with digital marketing, far more automated shop floor, smart product R&D, predictive asset maintenance. telematics in insurance, mobile banking, omni-channel retail, smart cities with sensors everywhere and so much more. There is significant fatigue with the current crop of “strategic” tech vendors, and Workday could well move into that vacuum, but not with its current small footprint."
