Client’s Business Goals

The client was keen to migrate all their systems onto a single unified enterprise application with latest technologies, for better management and maintenance. The chosen unified solution was Workday – best-in-class application for finance, HR and more.

Key Challenges

There were a few challenges that were sorted:

Workday API's complex & large XML responses

Client needing reusable & dynamic code to reduce development efforts

Shutting down multiple applications and migrating to Workday using Big Bang approach without impacting business & users

Workday integrations

New technology (PySpark & Workday's inbuilt XXLT code base)

Our Approach

Looking at the challenges faced by the client, SPEC INDIA defined four teams.

Data migration team for carrying out data migration activities – pulling data from Power BI reports, converting them into workday-acceptable formats, and sending data to the workday.

Data integration team taking care of all Workday-to-Workday integrations & third-party to Workday integrations. All these integrations to be built in Workday Studio and keep running at defined intervals.

ETL team takes care of pulling data from Workday, transforming & processing data, and sending processed data to a data warehouse for reporting purposes. Most of the ETL development is done in Azure Databricks and scheduled in Azure Data Factory.

Reporting team to generate Power BI reports for Biz Ops and other stakeholders.

Our Solution

The project was to replace third-party applications (from different vendors & for different purposes) with one enterprise application (Workday).  The client was using different SaaS-based applications for HR, Finance, Project & CRM modules which were a bit costly and required more support efforts and cost.

We got legacy data from Power BI models for data migration activities, migrated to Databricks for faster processing of data, Python & PySpark technologies for data extraction and processing, Workday Studio for integrations, and Power BI for reporting. We approached Azure as a cloud platform.

Key Inclusions

Data migration from legacy applications to Workday

Explore Workday's public web API to send & receive Workday data

Migrate legacy applications code (from U-SQL) to Databricks (PySpark)

Write Workday integrations to sync data within systems

Retrieve & process Workday data (HR, Project & Finance data) in Azure Databricks through PySpark technology

Create Power BI reports from processed Workday data for BizOps people
