Recent Research: Case Study: Allianz Global Investors Deploys Ceridian Dayforce to Modernize the Necessities of Employing People For well over a decade, employers have been ripping out legacy deployments of software for human capital management in favor of superior, cloud-based solutions delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS).
