SaaS is only the first step
Deploying SaaS puts continual innovation at your fingertips and enables HR and Finance to keep up with today’s expectations. But managing SaaS also requires changes in the way you operate as a company and deliver HR and Finance services. This is the new SaaS paradigm, and with it come new ways of working, including new costs and challenges to manage. One reason SaaS is so powerful is that it’s dynamically evolving rather than static, instantly keeping its users at the forefront of technology. Those dynamic innovations often have implications on processes, roles, and data. Optimizing SaaS for your business and managing its implications require experience and effective service delivery. Aon Hewitt Cloud Solutions can help you at every step in your SaaS journey.
Put the right resources within reach
SaaS platforms like Workday come with automatic updates multiple times per year. Their impact on your own HR and Finance operations and services can vary greatly, being significant at times and less significant at others. Keeping current requires periodic access to a team that has the specialized skills required by each update, as well as in-depth knowledge of your technical environment, processes, and operations.
Planning for the changes within your organization
System integrations, reports, processes, operations, and end-users may all be impacted by an update. New training, communications, or overall change management may be necessary multiple times per year.
Executing on the plan
Once the impacts of an update are identified and a plan is in place to manage the changes, you need specialized staff to implement that plan. Due to the unpredictable nature of updates, managing the right resources can be a challenge. The skills required to execute on these plans are highly marketable and can be hard to retain for periodic work.
