About

Why the Enterprise Project?

The Enterprise Project is a business transformation that will improve the Ohio State experience and advance operational excellence through Workday and other modern, effective services and technology.  

It includes optimizing finance, HR, payroll, student services and IT business processes; replacing core administrative systems (currently PeopleSoft) with Workday; and improving decision-making through a single source of trusted administrative data.

Exceptional service. Modern technology. A better Ohio State experience. 

At its core, the Enterprise Project will change the way the university does business. By leveraging modern systems and more efficient processes, Ohio State faculty, physicians, staff and students can spend more time on mission-driven work, and less on administrative tasks. 

Our current administrative systems are outdated and inefficient. They cause inflexibility in business processes, and business and technical risk due to their age and customization. Updating these systems and the processes together provides tremendous opportunity to move Ohio State forward. 

Resources for resourceful people.

Your time is important. Period.

The Enterprise Project will give you tools and resources to maximize your time in the classroom, laboratory, hospital or office. Through improved self-service tools and easier access to trusted business data, you will truly be able to make the most of your day.

A single system for the entire organization.

Ohio State is implementing Workday for the university and Wexner Medical Center’s financial, human resources, payroll and student information systems. That means one system for all of your Ohio State business support needs: one version and one experience for one Ohio State community.
