Why Workday Integration with Boomi?

compositeImg

At Kitepipe, we do lots of integration projects involving Workday. We find that Boomi is a great tool to connect the organization to HR data in Workday. There are several reasons that Workday projects are common:

  • Market penetration – as the premier HR platform, Workday has thousands of customers, plus every company has workers and needs HRIS
  • Connections – every application and platform at a company needs employee/user information, which originates in Workday
  • Investment – Workday is not cheap, and firms investing in Workday want a complete solution. The Workday integration tools are code-heavy and expensive to build and maintain, so Boomi offers a much better TCO profile for the integration part of the architecture

Workday integration is Hard

Workday is the source of truth for most employee information, so it must feed all other applications. There are many point to point connections with Integration Studio or other tools, logic is duplicated across many connections, which can be a maintenance nightmare. Plus, due to Workday’s complex data model, it is a challenge to know which worker records have changed and why.

Another challenge is conversion. Workday handles the contractor to employee conversion as two different records, but you want the same identity through the conversion. And, some worker data is sourced in other systems, and the integration solution needs to handle two way updates. For many organizations, comprehensive change reporting is needed across all platforms.
