All UIS enterprise and business applications are in service at this time.
Service Status: Green
The Human Capital Management (HCM) software powers the Human Resources, payroll and benefits functions across all University of Colorado campuses. It’s critical to keeping business running smoothly. With that in mind, the HCM Systems Team in UIS has adopted a patching and upgrade process that ensures the system is always up-to-date and major upgrades are a thing of the past.
What does this mean for you?
All HCM patching is critical to our service line. It ensures all CU employees get paid correctly and promptly. Beyond payment, regulatory and current system updates ensure that employees receive benefits properly, including health, retirement and other programs.
How often are these updates?
HCM has three different upgrade cycles:
How has this changed previous HCM upgrades?
Prior to the upgrade to HCM 9.2, HCM did regulatory patches less than four times a year and hadn’t done an upgrade to functionality in close to a decade. Under this model, the entire system eventually requires a time-intensive, costly upgrade. HCM’s new strategy puts the university on a no-additional-cost upgrade model. By staying current, we won’t need to do a massive system upgrade.
How has this new process benefited CU overall?
The last HCM upgrade changed the way campuses did business. It provides CU an updated system that no longer requires massive upgrades. Instead, it allows the HCM Systems Team to enhance business processes as suggestions and needs arise. This provides a better value than everything changing at once. Technology is making a difference in how we continue to keep CU supported.
