Workday is a cloud-based software that helps organizations of all types manage their operations. This includes finances, human resources, reporting, operations planning, and student-related processes -- in other words, the entire enterprise.
The idea behind Workday is that the most efficient way for organizations to work is to have everyone using the same core system, with the data centralized and consistent for people to use whatever their work entails - a student registering for classes, a professor viewing class rosters, a budget manager checking expenses, or the many other information-related tasks that take place at a college. Workday describes this model as "one unified core that’s always live and always secure." By building an adaptive, or configurable, system, Workday hopes organizations can continuously create plans, execute them, and analyze the outcomes all in one system.
