The primary use case of the solution is to manage our HR items, such as talent and learning, professional development, compensation, requesting time off, PTOs, and sick days.

I was using Workday at my previous company. The company that I'm currently working for does not use Workday. We were using it as a people management system to manage people's data.

Workday provides a number of offerings. I've seen it primarily being used for human capital management, which includes onboarding, the entire employee lifecycles from recruiting to offboarding, payroll, benefits, absence, and time tracking. Unlike some of its competitors such as PeopleSoft, Oracle, or SAP, Workday is cloud-based. Workday is built natively in the cloud, and you're always on the most recent version. In terms of the cloud provider, they do have their own data centers. They've got one in Portland. They've got one in North Carolina, one in Dublin, Ireland, and maybe one or two at other places. I have heard that ultimately the underlying technology is AWS, but I'm not certain of that. Technically, it's a hybrid model. Their enterprise bus model is such that technically you share server resources with other customers. A lot of customers don't actually know that, but if we're all running a lot of integrations or doing a lot of data processing at once, it's possible that the server could be impacted, and whoever is providing the maintenance would have to then throttle and pull resources from somewhere else. However, most customers don't experience any type of real performance issues, and then from a security standpoint, even though they're shared server resources, everything is of course constrained to just that particular customer. No other customer could view a separate customer's data or things of that nature.

We primarily use the solution for benefits administration and talent management. We can also manage HR and administration. We use the solution worldwide. It's for absence management. For platform and feedback management, both for myself and for my coaches. We use it for performance, in general, across the company. It's for onboarding. For example, I've been provided with monthly pay slips through Workday, I can have available all the pay slips and other information, personal information, such as certificates for tax and personal purposes. Everything is in Workday as far as personnel is concerned.

We use Workday for our employee onboarding and their entire lifecycle. We try to use certain aspects of Workday, such as currency management. For example, if they put in their expenses and they need to have them reimbursed, we use Workday. Before the onboarding process, they have the hiring process, then they enter the recruitment phase. Once the recruitment is complete in Workday, they have to create a profile for these employees in the system. The main data will always be in Workday. You are using it as a CRM.

The primary use case will be different for each company, but we use it for HTM and reporting. We use it to consolidate your HR system into one source of data. That's generally why people want to implement Workday, so they can have one source of data for better collaboration and reporting and C-level reports, stats and things like that.
