Re: All this sounds very grand...

To be honest, people that choose workday (or any HRIS) know they are getting locked in, and won't want to change systems for a long time. At least with APIs and easy access to your data you may be able to have that data live in multiple places or easily export it.

I do hear you on the difficulty of keeping up with SAAS changes, especially when you have interconnected systems. But what other options are there? Monolith? DIY?

ZFS is a good option, but there are other options out there that are not tied to Oracle and have real development happening behind the scenes, as this article proves.
