Welcome to the New IBM Workday Consulting Services

Workday Consulting Welcome to a new era in Workday Consulting!

For years, we’ve helped our clients to transform their organizations by tapping into the power of Workday. Human resources and finance professionals have realized significant benefits from taking advantage of this technology, and because of it, they’ve been able to step into more strategic roles while their businesses have made better use of their talent and financial resources.

As more and more businesses realize the value of Workday, they need a partner that can help them plan a roadmap, deploy in a timely fashion, and do it in a way that sets them up for future success. We want to be that partner.

With the launch of IBM Workday Consulting Services, we’re blending the best aspects of a boutique consulting firm with the global scale of a digital innovator. We provide a focused and consultative approach, backed by a depth of resources and innovation that can only come from a global company.

By way of introduction, this practice is the result of a shared commitment to client success and an exclusive focus on Workday. IBM acquired Meteorix in late 2015, and in May 2016, we officially combined to create IBM Workday Consulting Services — blending the best of each team to create a world-class consulting group that delivers a boutique experience with global scale.

Today, as one of the leading full-service business partners in the Workday ecosystem, IBM Workday Consulting Services provides extensive deployment experience and a wealth of best practices that extend beyond the day you go live on Workday. We help optimize, expand and enhance the use of Workday for businesses and organizations of all sizes and from all industries, at each stage of their digital transformation journey.

And, we can offer a unique perspective because in addition to being a Workday partner, we’re a client.

That’s right: IBM is currently deploying Workday across the organization. That allows us to better understand our clients’ challenges and accelerate the value they realize from Workday Consulting.

In addition, I’m excited about the opportunities our practice has to take advantage of IBM’s latest innovations. Leveraging predictive analytics and building solutions that bring together Workday and cognitive tools like Watson will help us better serve our clients, and add even more value to their Workday investment.

Together, IBM and Workday are helping clients build smarter HR and financial management capabilities with new tools and deeper insights. By partnering with IBM, clients can realize the full potential of their Workday investment and enhance the roles of HR and finance as strategic partners in driving speed, efficiency and profitable growth.

On behalf of our entire team, I invite you to get to know us better — and that extends beyond our best-in-class Workday deployment services. On this blog, you’ll find best practice advice that will help at all stages of the deployment process, from choosing a partner to change management to optimizing the system after it goes live. You’ll also find insights on many of the current trends on the minds of human resources and finance professionals.

In addition, I invite you to connect with us on social media: We’re on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

We look forward to connecting with you and providing the services you need to enhance your Workday journey. Please let me know if I can ever assist with that effort.
