TCC partners to build Workday Student

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (September 25, 2013) – On September 10 Workday, Inc., a leader in cloud-based enterprise software, announced plans  to build Workday Student, the first student service application developed for higher education since the 1990s. As part of the announcement Workday revealed institutions of higher education they will work with as design partners, including Yale University, Broward College, Southern New Hampshire University and Tallahassee Community College.
 
At their August 19 meeting, TCC's District Board of Trustees approved the purchase of the Workday ERP Suite—including financial management and human capital management systems—and the partnership on the Workday Student System, a significant step by the College to incorporate more innovative technology into its infrastructure.
 
TCC Vice President for Information Technology Bret Ingerman made the recommendation to the Trustees to partner with Workday on both the ERP and student service application, and continues to lead the implementation and development groups at TCC.
 
"In their conversations with us, and at their recent annual conference Workday Rising, Workday has demonstrated an ability to deliver solutions that meet the varied needs of their customers," said Ingerman. "Partnering with such a progressive and customer-focused company to develop a new student information system is something that will greatly benefit TCC."
 
Workday Student is expected to feature a system of record with a big data analytic foundation and a mobile-first system of engagement. Student will be unified with Workday's administrative solution and delivered in the cloud. Key TCC personnel have already begun meeting with Workday developers on the application design to discuss the College's unique needs and how the working features can be improved. By incorporating input from TCC and partners, Workday will build a forward-thinking application from the ground up that will anticipate student and institutional needs.
 
"Because of the revolutionary new technologies that are fundamental to the Workday software solution," said Ingerman, "TCC will be able to spend its time configuring workflows to meet our academic and administrative needs, rather than writing software to fill gaps in our present aging software.  That means the College can re-examine all of our business processes with an eye towards improving services."

 

TCC anticipates implementation of components of Workday Student to begin in late 2014.
