Why Read This Research

After decades of use, Calvin University’s (Calvin) on-premises finance, HCM, and student legacy systems had been extended with thousands of customizations and homegrown components. The institution needed a modern technology strategy that would integrate systems of record with a data and analytics strategy across systems.

Additionally, Calvin sought an implementation partner, choosing Alchemy for its Workday knowledge base and synergy between Alchemy consultants and Calvin’s project committee.
