Saba Deepens Workday Partnership With Launch of New Connector
Nov. 7, 2012 08:01 AM
Saba today announced the availability of the Saba Workday Connector
that enables Saba to leverage key workforce data from Workday Human
Capital Management (HCM) to more effectively develop employees and
track training effectiveness.
The two-way connector allows easy cloud-to-cloud integration of
employee, job, organizational, training and certification data,
enabling joint customers to benefit from their investments in less
time and with less effort.
The connector, built on Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), leverages Saba
web services and is available as part of the new Saba
Enterprise Cloud release. The Saba Enterprise Cloud helps HR
organizations support their talent management strategy with a proven,
unified talent management system.
The Saba Workday Connector provides comprehensive support for the
Employee Update Sync. Newly hired employees and contingent
workers are synced between Workday and Saba Person Profile. This
includes substantive changes such as reporting hierarchy and common
information like employee contact details.
Training Update Sync. In addition, when certain training
courses and certifications are updated in Saba, this data is passed
back to the Workday employee’s profile for consumption in Workday.
Foundation Data Sync. Organizational and location data is sent
to Saba automatically. Job profiles maintained in Workday are sent to
Saba Job Type for the Saba Person Profile. This dramatically
simplifies the employee update and makes system maintenance easier.
"Easy data sharing between these two complementary solutions in the HR
and learning management market will enable customers to better
leverage their people information for more effective employee
development and organizational planning,” said Amar Dhaliwal, senior
vice president, product operations group, Saba. "With the Saba Workday
Connector, Saba can now deliver an even more compelling value
proposition to our joint customers.”
“Enabling employee development is a key aspect of our customers’
workforce strategies,” said Amy Wilson, vice president of HCM product
strategy, Workday. “This partnership will enable customers to more
seamlessly bring learning progress and results into Workday’s complete
