Countdown to Nov. 2018 Workday Go Live for HCM/Payroll Begins
Ready, Set, Go Live. November 2018 has been chosen as the Workday human capital management and payroll (HCM/Payroll) go-live window for campus — just over a year until the switch to this modern, cloud-based solution selected by the university. Dana Cook, associate vice president of Administrative Systems Modernization, announced the date to campus stakeholders at the Workday Open House and Town Hall on Oct. 17. If you were not able to attend, you can watch a video of the presentation. EID and password required. Workday for HCM/Payroll is expected to go live on or around Nov. 1, 2018. Read More
HCM/Payroll Design Confirmation Session Final Report Now Available
HCM/Payroll Design Confirmation Sessions , which took place over the past several months, were a key component to moving forward with the Workday HCM/Payroll implementation after the Workday reset. The primary goals of these sessions were to provide participants with an understanding of how Workday HCM/Payroll had been configured to meet business requirements and confirm that the university can continue doing business at go live, and to solicit common use cases from units.
The Design Confirmation Session Final Report includes overviews of the strategy and approach for the Design Confirmation Stage, overviews of each Design Confirmation Session, and answers to any outstanding questions, known as parking lot items, that were asked during Design Confirmation Sessions but which required more research before an answer could be provided.

Visit the Design Confirmation Landing page for videos from each session, including system demonstrations from Hire to Separation and Employee Self-Service demos like timekeeping.
‘Workday Rising’ Confirms Path, Highlights Lessons Learned
Workday Rising, Workday’s annual customers’ conference, welcomed more than 8,500 participants from around the globe, including a group from UT Austin’s own Workday Implementation Program, along with campus leaders from HR, Academic Personnel Services, Financial Aid and the College of Pharmacy. The conference featured case studies, deep-dive demonstrations, and forums to network and share ideas. UT Austin’s Workday team members came away with a strong sense of validation that the university’s Workday HCM/Payroll implementation plan is on the right track and that the methodical, campus-inclusive approach that’s been adopted will help avoid pitfalls that other universities have experienced.

Scope for Workday HCM/Payroll Integrations Closes
As of September 29, 2017, the scope for the Workday Integrations Team is closed. The list of integrations that will be produced for Workday go live can be reviewed at the Final HCM/Payroll Integration Inventory wiki. The Workday Implementation Program has spent the last couple of months reaching out to IT teams around campus with known technical integrations to the current HR or Payroll applications or data. The team also contacted many areas not believed to have a need to replace an existing integration to confirm that is still true. The list of contacted areas can be viewed at the CSU Application Disposition and Integration Confirmations wiki.
