I had a conversation with a colleague a few weeks ago about Workday SIS. We were discussing how several institutions are using one or several modules of Workday and when the company would have a full SIS ready. Well, a complete Workday SIS is scheduled for later this year.
It looks like Workday has signed SIS agreements (over 100) with several institutions, about twice the amount that we have in our database. After doing a bit of digging, however, it looks to be institutions that are current customers, meaning that they are already using the Financial and/or HR system and will also change to the SIS once it is ready.
We have seen partial implementations of the Workday SIS solution since 2016 (blue). If we speculate that the current users of the Financial and HR modules will also be implementing the SIS module, this is what the total implementation would look like (see the additional orange portion).
Again, if we look at institutions that are current Workday users but have not yet started to use the SIS, this would make that number (over 100) make sense. So who are those clients and what systems will be replaced?
Assuming that the future users of Workday SIS are current clients, we looked at the current SIS systems that are being used at those institutions. As you can see in the graph above, Banner Student would be the one taking the biggest hit followed by Oracle Peoplesoft.
We only have implementation dates for 75% of active systems in our database.
