Ceridian Forms Separate HCM and Payments Businesses

Ceridian announces that it has completed the legal separation of its Human Capital Management (HCM) and Payments businesses. Ceridian completed the separation on October 1, 2013 through a series of transactions that result in the Payments business being operated as Comdata Inc. (“Comdata”), and the HCM business being operated as Ceridian HCM Holding Inc. (“Ceridian HCM”).

Stuart C. Harvey, Jr. will serve as Chairman of the Board for both Comdata and Ceridian HCM, as well as remaining as the Chief Executive Officer of Comdata. Majority owners and financial partners, funds affiliated with Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. and Fidelity National Financial, Inc. remain the same for both Comdata and Ceridian HCM.

Ceridian HCM has seen tremendous market success in the last twelve months. The award-winning Dayforce HCM cloud solution had approximately 750 live clients as of June 30, 2013. Dayforce HCM is a single application for payroll, benefits, time, scheduling and human resources. In addition, the LifeWorks Wellness solution has more than 14 million members using the web, phone, and mobile applications. David Ossip will continue to lead Ceridian HCM as its Chief Executive Officer, David MacKay as President and Lois Martin as Chief Financial Officer.

“The new structure enables our team to continue to innovate in human capital management, helping our clients engage their employees and create the most effective workforce possible,” says David Ossip, CEO, Ceridian HCM. “We will remain focused on delivering trusted results and transformative technology.”

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
