At Alight, we strive to make Workday work for you and your company. That’s why we are using Workday Cloud Platform (WCP) to design, build, deploy and share applications that run on and integrate with your Workday system. In this guide, we discuss how our Workday team is using WCP to enhance the user experience, the basics of WCP’s functionality and what you need to do to bring the power of WCP to your organization.
At Alight, we’re using Workday Cloud Platform to build apps your organization can use to meet your specific needs. Here are some examples of the apps we are building.
Workday Cloud Platform enables developers and business analysts to design, build, deploy and share applications that run on and integrate with Workday. It provides Workday customers enhanced customization of their system to create an engaging experience for end users. WCP is not designed to customize existing Workday pages or tasks and the custom apps created will be standalone. Primary, WCP is meant for new functionality and kept separate for upgradability.
Having the ability to customize your system to create applications that support your business processes whilst still leveraging the power of Workday provides you with endless possibilities. Below are some use cases for how WCP can be used:
WCP offers different tools for different user skill levels and application configuration complexity, allowing your organization to leverage the right functionality to meet your needs. The table below shows the different audiences these tools are targeted for.
