Re: A year to deploy a cloud service?
We're talking about the HR and financial systems of record, here. Those don't go in quickly, and at Brown, for one, you have the complication of working in an academic setting where committees and commonplace and command-and-control from on high is not. Small orgs can deploy in a little as three months and larger orgs in six, at a minimum. But HCM and financials are not like salesforce automation, Dropbox, or some other lightweight cloud app.

A year to deploy a cloud service?
Amazing that cloud deployment could take something simlar to the timeframe of on premises? Doe it cost less, at least?

I wonder whether what takes the time really has much to do with the software, or more to do with getting the organization to adapt to usin the software.
