Protect your data with Workday

Data privacy has always been important. An organization may possess the personal information of its employees and it needs to keep private so that worker’s identities stay as safe and protected as possible, and the company’s reputation remains untarnished.

Apart from security settings following workday functionalities are very helpful to prevent data theft and to ensure data privacy.

1. Data Masking:

You can mask sensitive data in your tenant. Data masking either masks or substitutes dummy values for actual values to hide data from Workday users. Data masking also hides profile pictures from these users. Workday applies these restrictions when displaying data to individual Workday accounts and security groups with data masking enabled:

  • ***** replaces text values in fields.
  • 01/01/2000 or ***** replaces date values.
  • ***** replaces numeric values.
  • Profile pictures are hidden.
  • You cannot save changes if any field contains sensitive data.

2. Data Purging:

Workday customers may have an obligation under data protection laws to remove personal data when it is no longer needed. In the past, you have had to contact Workday to remove this data. Purge Person Data enables you to purge the data. You select the person whose data is to be purged by creating a custom report that filters the results to include those individuals. The custom report controls, whose data will be purged. By selecting the appropriate data types within the Purge Person Data task or within a purge plan, you choose which data will be purged for the people returned by the custom report you have created.

3. Data Scrambling:

Workday’s Data Scrambler Framework allows you to replace elected fields permanently and irreversibly, with randomly generated new values in a Workday implementation tenant. The scrambler alters original values in a way that they will not be easily derived from the scrambled data. To perform this operation, you need to create Scramble Plans and execute them.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
