The university has determined that Workday’s Human Capital Management (HCM) and Student system functionality would indeed serve the university well. Our project sponsors, Provost Bruce McPheron and CFO Geoff Chatas, have asked the project team to evaluate what it would take to expand our original Financials focused project to also include Human Resources and Student systems.
To be clear, the final decision on whether to transition to Workday Enterprise won’t be made until after we complete the evaluation of what realignment would look like, so we must simultaneously continue our momentum on the Financials Project.
The project team has initiated a planning phase to evaluate how Ohio State could realign from a Financials-only project to an Enterprise solution. We are leveraging the existing project structures and plan on completing the Realignment Phase by the end of January.
