Challenges of Integrating Workday with ERP Systems

Complex Custom Integrations

Creating connectivity and integration between HR applications and an ERP system is a common challenge for businesses. As recruiters find potential candidates and track applications, the information needs to be synchronized with databases and ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle, and PeopleSoft. For businesses to operate efficiently, all of their systems, services, and applications need to be seamlessly integrated. Businesses often attempt to address this need by creating custom connectivity and implementing point-to-point integration. This approach applies custom code directly between two endpoints, creating a tightly coupled dependency between them. While this type of integration is manageable in an environment with only a few systems, the complexity of custom integrations increases exponentially as additional systems and services are added over time. Increased complexity, meanwhile, brings increased costs — as organizations are forced to divert ever more time and resources to building and maintaining integration in an increasingly fragile and inflexible architecture.
