ABOUT KNIGHT VISION
Knight Vision is a campus-wide program that will transform the way UCF works through optimized processes and state-of-the-art technologies that provide a single source of truth to inform strategic decision-making in a rapidly changing world. Knight Vision will replace the current PeopleSoft system with the cloud-based Workday system to modernize and simplify UCF’s processes, improve transparency across the campus community and provide a robust platform for sharing and analyzing data.
We will maintain a “University First” mindset and strive to use delivered, out-of-the-box functionality whenever possible. We will seek to make processes and technology consistent across units.
We will improve service, focus on ease of use for our end users and design business processes that follow best practices.
We will track key project and institutional performance metrics, both qualitative and quantitative, to measure ongoing performance and increased efficiencies.
TRANSPARENCY & INCLUSIVITY
We will make decisions transparently and share information frequently and in numerous formats. End users will be asked to weigh in on key design choices. We are in this together.
We will hold ourselves accountable to end users, the campus community and broader stakeholders. We are empowered to make critical decisions.
CAMPUS COMMUNITY IMPACT
The Knight Vision program will improve administrative infrastructure and systems for the entire UCF campus community. Our goal is to increase university-wide efficiency and effectiveness by driving operational excellence and transforming business processes.
HOW WILL IT BE IMPLEMENTED?
The university’s new cloud-based system, Workday, was selected in 2020 to serve as our new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. It will be implemented in two phases. We are currently in the first phase, focusing on implementing Workday to replace PeopleSoft’s human resources, finance, budgeting, research administration and reporting functions in approximately 24-months. Complementing the Workday implementation, the Service Enhancement Transformation (SET) project will begin transforming the way HR and Finance work is organized to optimize the delivery of services across UCF. Phase two will focus on migrating UCF Student Systems from PeopleSoft to Workday while continuing the focus on improved administrative services and more effective processes.
