Workday-CMUWorks - Carnegie Mellon University

Why Workday

To meet the growing and changing needs of the university, CMU selected Workday, a new generation of Software as a Service (SaaS) enterprise applications. Workday is integrated, intuitive, accessible, and designed for speed, usability, and flexibility.

“The CMUWorks Project will streamline and enhance Human Resources, Benefits, and Payroll technology, business processes, and services to the campus community. Workday, along with the improved business processes and the support of the CMUWorks Service Center, will enable CMU to be strategic, responsive, flexible, and scalable for future growth of the university.  I look forward to the successful implementation of Workday and CMUWorks Service Center in late December 2014.”

Steve Huth

"Software generally does not age gracefully. What may have begun as an elegant design when the system was first conceived 25 years ago, today limits what you can realistically accomplish.  When it became clear that the current systems could not keep up with the changing needs of the university, we explored new options.  Workday will provide us a HR/Payroll system agile enough to support the needs of a twenty-first century university.”
