The Technical Management and Integration team within the UR Financials team holds a special responsibility for the life of the project: to transition from the Financial Records System (FRS) to the incoming Workday system. With this introduction are tireless efforts of research, testing, revising and documentation. Over the forty years of its existence, FRS created hundreds of lines and links to auxiliary systems such as HRMS, Cognos, COEUS and FAMIS, among others. Those links require careful attention to ensure that data is transmitted seamlessly and that all business processes may be maintained over the transitional period and beyond. Once the links are created and tested, the Integration team will continue to support the Financial Data Converter to maintain the translation of information from FRS to Workday and from Workday to FRS.
Though often surrounded by the designs, architecture plans and risk-mitigation procedures, the UR Financials Integration team stands front and center with their meticulous and expert utilization of our data and we salute them for their efforts!
