Timeline & Approach

The Integrated Renewal Program kicked off November 2017, and we are currently on track to implement the HR and finance modules in 2020. Launching in 2020 is just the start of our journey as we continue to evolve new capability and sustain our new systems and ways of working.

Implementation Stages

UBC will generally follow Workday’s 5-step deployment methodology, designed to provide clarity of deliverables and release dates to keep the community well-informed. 

We expect to be able to share more information about the Student implementation in 2020.

Deployment Plan

UBC’s implementation dates take into account UBC’s academic and fiscal timelines to minimize disruption to students, staff and faculty. The implementation dates also reflect data and System of Record considerations, time needed to purposefully move the UBC community through this change, and the experiences of other similar higher education HR, finance and student system implementations.

The IRP currently anticipates five implementation dates.

Future release dates are currently under review.
