Workday and Groundswell, specializing in low-code solutions for federal agencies, have announced the successful “go live” of Workday Government Cloud for a US federal agency. 

The agency with an international mission and global workforce is poised to benefit from Workday’s cloud-based solutions for human resources modernization, replacing an outdated on-premises personnel database.

By implementing Workday Government Cloud, staff across the organization will be able to access and manage their own data, empowering decentralized decision-making and providing managers with the tools to maintain their organizations efficiently.

“This successful implementation of Workday demonstrates our modern ERP transformation and deployment capabilities and our commitment to federal agencies,” said George Batsakis, CEO of Groundswell. 

“To be performing well here, especially on the heels of our recent Workday award at the Defense Intelligence Agency, is a great moment for Groundswell and our implementation partner, CrossVue. We are excited to continue exceptional delivery of Workday solutions and supporting the larger ERP modernization movement happening throughout our wide range of government customers.”

The recent announcement is part of a larger federal-wide movement away from legacy ERP systems to other useful and agile solutions.

Lynn Martin, head of federal, Workday, said: “This milestone is an exciting testament to the powerful role that Workday can play in helping federal agencies modernize.

“We are committed to being a trusted partner to the government as it navigates an ever-changing landscape, empowering agencies to transform how they manage their people and the taxpayers’ money in service of this great nation.”

Earlier this year, Workday expanded its partnership with Saab, a Swedish defense and security company, to prioritize employee experience and boost business success.

Since starting their partnership in 2017, Saab has leveraged the Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) suite and Workday Peakon Employee Voice to modernize its HR platform and improve employee engagement.
