The IT department and the HR department have always had a...well, let's just call it an "interesting" relationship. Their tasks are relatively straightforward: the HR department is responsible for hiring, training, and retaining employees, and the IT department is responsible for making sure those employees get access to what they need to do their jobs. But because HR and IT don't have the same goals, they don't always see eye-to-eye. This difference in priorities can make it hard to bridge the gap between the human capital management (HCM) systems used by HR and the rest of the IT infrastructure.
That's where Ping and Workday can help. Ping has enabled thousands of customers to integrate their on-premises and cloud infrastructures, including extending single sign-on from the IT environment into Workday. As a Workday Certified Solutions Partner, we're excited to announce a new integration option that automates user management between Workday HCM and the rest of the IT environment. The new Workday provisioner for PingFederate connects Workday to an on-premises IT directory using the industry-standard SCIM protocol.
So how does this integration work? Workday worker profiles are linked to an existing user in the on-premises directory via Workday's object model structure. If there isn't a match, a new user is created. From there, the administrator can specify whether each individual attribute of a user's identity comes from Workday or from the IT directory. And if an employee leaves the company, Workday triggers an IT access revocation process. Best of all, there's no custom integration work needed on the Workday side--just provide the PingFederate configuration tool with the necessary Workday API credentials, and you're on your way.
