Our customers store their most sensitive people and financial data inside of Workday, and it’s not something we take lightly. If data is the new oil, then discovering, refining, and making data as useful as possible is vital to the smooth functioning and growth of any company. With this in mind, last October we announced the availability of Workday Prism Analytics, enabling customers to blend and transform any data—including Workday data and data from any outside source—to enrich their financial and people analytics, putting data into the hands of decision-makers.
With Workday Prism Analytics, we’re providing self-service tools across the entire analytics process, from data integration all the way to reporting. And today, Workday Prism Analytics has moved into primetime with the introduction of data discovery, an entirely new way to build reports and explore your data visually in Workday, enabling analysis at the speed of thought with drag and drop chart creation.
We asked Pete Schlampp, vice president, Workday Analytics, to provide an introduction to data discovery: why it matters to your organization, the benefits to customers, and what to expect in the future.
