Workday HCM 360 degree Practical Training

A Deep-Dive into Design, Configure, Test, Deploy, Production Support, and Data Conversion

Course Summary

Objectives of this course

In this valuable course, you will learn Workday’s methodology for key stages and phases throughout a deployment. Phases typically represent the deployment of net new product lines list below, as opposed to just rolling out additional product functions.
For example, phase 1 may consist of core HR, benefits, and manager self service. Phase 2 may include the deployment of financials. Phases are determined initially in the statement of work (SOW), but are revisited for accuracy and approach during the Plan stage of a deployment. The stages of the methodology should remain the same regardless of phase.

Definitely a 360 degree training!

I am so delighted to have chosen this HCM Practical 360 Training. All the core concepts related to production, configuration, testing, and deployment were covered thoroughly. My queries were always answered with patience - I had plenty since I was a Fresher to this training. They let me be a part of many Live Projects which provided a better understanding of the application of these concepts in Real-Time. I have been employed as Workday HRIS Technical Analyst in a reputed organization for the past 6 months. - Jefferey Brown
