Washington State University Modernization

What is Workday?

Workday is a cloud-based application that will serve as WSU’s primary finance and administration, human resources, post-award grants management, and payroll system. Workday will take on and merge a bulk of the business processes performed by the current mainframe finance and administration system, AIS.  

AIS was developed in the 1980’s and has been serving the University for over 30 years. The implementation of Workday will provide the University community with safer, more effective technology and administrative processes. 

Workday is a modern technology for a modern university. Its launch will play a pivotal role in bringing WSU into the 21st century and accelerating the Drive to 25 Initiative.
