Navigating your Workday testing and change management challenges
Like all ERP/HRIS applications, Workday requires ongoing care and maintenance to ensure smooth operation. At Mercer, we understand the challenges of maintaining operational efficiency, risk mitigation, data integrity and managing change.
Mercer Assure + Change, our data-driven automated testing solution, is key to both a successful implementation and to navigating a sustainable digital transformation.
Types of risk:
Data integrityOver 90% of production issues can be traced back to inaccurate or unaccounted combinations of metadata. It's crucial to continually refine your data validation and monitoring practices to ensure high standards of data integrity.
ConfigurationWe focus on ensuring Workday's optimal performance during customer updates and tailored configurations, not on software bugs.
IntegrationAs Workday communicates with upstream and downstream systems, understanding the frequency and reasons for automation failure guides us in enhancing system reliability and pinpointing critical areas for improvement.
Administrative support and maintenanceWith everyone doing more with less, you need to determine how to replace people-centric, tactical system nurturing with new tools and technology. Automated testing solutions significantly reduce manual effort and enhance the efficiency and reliability of your systems.
Timing of risk:
DeploymentDuring initial Workday implementation, things move fast. With the introduction of new technologies and concepts, the speed of data collection, and hasty decision making, not everything will be perfect.
Post go-liveAfter initial implementation, the stabilization phase addresses these initial issues. In the months and years to follow, your Workday tenant will continually evolve as your business changes—as you enter new geographies, experience M&A activity, and as your employees (including Workday administrators) come and go. Effectively managing these risks, and tracking changes post go-live, are crucial to maintaining the ongoing success of your Workday system.
Technology advancements are reshaping industries. The need for robust automated testing has never been more critical. As businesses strive to keep pace with technological innovations to maintain a competitive edge, the challenges of ensuring technology reliability and data integrity grow increasingly complex.
At Mercer, we understand these challenges intimately. Our automated testing solution, powered by Mercer Assure + Change, is designed to tackle these evolving demands head-on. We'll empower your business with seamless, efficient, data-driven and comprehensive testing solutions that pave the way for success in a digital-first world.
