We're looking to decide between Workday and PeopleSoft. For those who've made this decision, can you share your experience with either and why you chose one over the other?

Our decision was between Oracle Cloud (Financials including budget planning and HCM) and Workday. We did not look at PeopleSoft because move the cloud was important part of the project. We selected Oracle Cloud. The core reasons were: (1) RPA and the need for more automation in both HR and Finance, (2) COA (we had to do COA redesign and Oracle had a closer match to the functionality we wanted). Workday was stronger on HCM. These are complicated decisions - sorry I am boling it down to a very short explanation.

People soft is a dying technology .. lot of financial services organizations are moving or have moved to Workday. HCM and analytics capabilities are superior with Workday in conjunction with Anaplan. Besides the integration and data migration In many of the implementations i have been part of, were very smooth. I have seen implementations as complex of moving 300,000 employee data onto Workday , integration with GL and other systems and making the reporting data available on premise for data warehousing and BI in less than 6 months. Obviously additional HCM Features like learning portals, Anaplan based reporting, benefits etc took additional time, but the entire project was done in less than 18 months

Netflix was an early Workday HCM adopter as well as the first publicly traded company to go-live on Workday Financials. I selected them based upon "cultural fit" and the fact that their solution was either more extensible to start with, or I could help influence the features in the roadmap.

Interesting, very good to know. I had thought PeopleSoft was a dominant financial system.
