Workday’s big data play: The gateway drug to financials?
Workday’s launch of its Big Data Analytics software may ultimately be the bridge between getting its core human capital resources customers to use its financial applications too.
On Tuesday at its Workday Rising powwow, the company will take the wraps off of its Big Data Analytics system, which is part of Workday 20, which has 200 new features. The key features are market compensation comparisons, payroll cost analysis, headcount pictures, retention risk analysis and high performance profiles. Revenue data and worker productivity are on deck as templates.
