Is there any new guidance on the Capitalization of Implementation Costs?

We have a significant amount of the implementation cost from workday. The amount covers 1)subscription fee $500K, 2) training fee $50K ( part of the implementation standard what workday requires , but also good for our internal team) , 3) delivery assurance fee $50K --this is to ensure that we have implemented the software according to their standards.and 4) Consulting fee associated with the implementation $100K . Should we capitalize or expense them? my understanding is we should expense them since these are the service software contract. Can someone please share your thoughts? Thanks!
