PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2014) - HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced HP Enterprise Applications Services for Workday to help clients maximize the full business value of Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) applications.
Companies looking to modernize their existing HCM applications are transitioning these enterprise computing platforms from on-premises to the cloud. This can help them reduce costs, streamline HR and payroll processes, and realize a faster return on their investment.
Workday HCM is a single system-of-record -- delivered in the cloud -- that enables organizations to make faster decisions, gain operational visibility, prepare for future talent shifts and build effective teams. Workday HCM is fully enabled for mobile use and also offers a lower-cost cloud model with a user experience designed for the way people work.
The new HP Enterprise Applications Services for Workday encompass all elements of an organization's Workday deployment -- including functional configuration, technology integration and program management -- to support clients in their efforts to achieve low-cost operations on an ongoing basis, better manage human capital to improve productivity and increase employee engagement. With it, companies can gain a distinct advantage in today's increasingly connected world.
"HP joins the Workday services partner ecosystem with a long history of successfully deploying enterprise applications on a global scale," said Jim Bozzini, senior vice president, Services, Workday. "HP is making a significant investment in building out its Workday practice and we look forward to working with them to help our mutual customers transform their businesses."
The new services leverage HP's rapidly growing number of Workday-certified consultants, as well as its expertise in cloud computing, mobile computing, reporting and analytics, and big data, and takes advantage of the company's delivery centers located around the world.
As both a Workday partner and customer with a rapidly growing number of Workday-certified consultants, HP is in a unique position to help customers realize the full potential of the application. Having executed the industry's largest deployment of Workday to date to its more than 300,000 employees across more than 100 countries, HP also has the knowledge and experience of deploying and integrating Workday within an organization's existing, and potentially complex, IT environment.
"Given the sheer size and scale of HP, an on-premises, enterprise implementation project of this scope could take up to three years to complete, from design to launch," said Scott Spradley, chief information officer, Global Functions, HP. "We were able to deliver Workday in only 14 months, resulting in a significant upgrade in efficiency, usability, capability and satisfaction across the entire scope of employee and manager self-services."
HP Enterprise Applications Services for Workday are available immediately worldwide.
