The Financial Transformation (FIN) is an initiative to update Georgia Tech's current financial system with state-of-the-art technology to provide our users a unified system of record which delivers real-time, integrated data across the Institute. This includes the migration to a cloud-based solution and a redesign of the Chart of Accounts in collaboration with the University System of Georgia (USG).
On behalf of the Institute’s senior leadership team, I am excited to announce Georgia Tech’s partnership with Workday to transform the Institute’s financial administration system with leading cloud-based technology. This investment will help to “Create the Next” platform for administrative services and deliver a higher degree of institutional effectiveness in our financial areas.
This initiative will successfully position the Institute for the digital age by improving the way we work, advancing the services we provide, and better informing the decisions we make. More importantly, it will provide us with an opportunity to:
- Re-imagine our data, processes, and reporting;
- Facilitate our alignment with the University System of Georgia requirements; and
- Enhance our reporting capabilities to the Board of Regents.
This collaborative effort is a partnership between many of our academic and research stakeholders and end-users across campus as well as members from Financial Services, Campus Services, and Information Technology. Guidance for this initiative is provided through an executive oversight committee comprised of Jim Fortner, interim vice president for Financial Services; Paul Strouts, vice president for Campus Services; and Mark Hoeting, interim chief information officer and vice president for Information Technology. The initiative is led by Greg Phillips, senior director of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
Our transformation begins this fall semester. Your active participation is essential for us to succeed. Together we can achieve great results.
I encourage you to explore the Enterprise Resource Planning website (erp.gatech.edu) for more information including how you can get involved.
