Workday is Likely to Disrupt Higher Education ERP in 2013

Speculation continues to increase that Workday is in fact building a SIS. There's no formal announcement, but informally the company has been discussing plans for weeks. Key hires continue.

All indications are that a formal beta group of SIS institutions could be announced by the time the Workday user conference convenes in September. Of course, the institutions have to sign agreements and as far as I know, negotiations are incomplete.

With a long history of building successful applications for higher education, Dave Duffield has always been committed to higher education. It's no secret that Liz Dietz joined Dave in April. On LinkedIn, her position is "Higher Education Change Agent".

When I was offered the opportunity to join PeopleSoft in 1995 to build the public sector and higher education business unit, I was ecstatic. I thought that PeopleSoft's SIS and full ERP offering was the most exciting thing that could ever happen in higher education technology. At the time, PeopleSoft had a successful HRMS and Financial business but the public sector and higher education business unit had not been initiated.

The team was formed over the summer of 1995 and I and John Mc

Is Workday Building a SIS?

The TTG 2013 U.S. SIS Market Trends Insights and Analysis report includes a review on Workday in the Companies to Watch section of the report.

While Workday has not made any formal announcement, TTG predicts that Workday is making plans to build a SIS. With a dedicated business unit and higher education customers for its HR and Finance products, the next logical step is to build a SIS.

If Workday does make a formal announcement, it is still very early in the SaaS SIS technology cycle. The early adopter portion of higher education institutions may consider moving to SaaS SIS over the next 2-3 years. It will take longer for the majority of institutions to consider SaaS-based SIS a viable option.

In the near term, many more institutions are considering hosted solutions and managed services solutions. To read more and to purchase the report, click here.

Workday Webinar Today

Workday presented a webinar including three of its customers: CMU, Syracuse and NYU. I registered and am pleased that the company allowed me to participate.

NYU is running an Integral system and reported that it could not afford not to change. As all three reported "going global", the infrastructure for their current systems was not sufficient. Doing more with less was a theme that NYU also mentioned several times.

NYU reported that Workday pro...
