Human Resources-related OPEX was on the rise and creating chaos for an industry-leading manufacturer of network infrastructure. They took action by switching from the on-premise Oracle HRMS module to the Cloud-based Workday Human Capital Management system.


Because the majority of the manufacturer's business operations run on Oracle E-Business Suite ERP, it was critical that the new Workday HCM system was properly integrated with Oracle EBS. ennVee needed to build the real-time and batch mode integrations between Workday and Oracle EBS. This integration would enable the client to leverage employee information seamlessly across both systems.
