Workday Recognized as a 2024 Customers’ Choice for Financial Planning Software by Gartner® Peer Insights™

Workday has over 280 five-star reviews as of April 30, 2024, in the Gartner Peer Insights “Financial Planning Software Reviews and Ratings” report.

As the global economy is expected to remain uncertain throughout 2024, modern planning software has become a strategic success lever, empowering enterprises to anticipate and respond to a faster and more dynamic rate of change.

Yet for many organizations, planning is in a rut. The core process hasn’t deviated much from the decades-old annual budgeting and forecasting cycle—and its limited, inflexible, and backward-looking plans. Continuous planning, on the other hand, encompasses specific practices that drive business agility across the enterprise—a distinct competitive advantage that has caught the attention of forward-thinking finance leaders worldwide.

With this in mind, we are honored to learn that Workday has been recognized as a 2024 Gartner® Peer Insights™ Customers’ Choice for Financial Planning Software. This distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end users who have experience with Workday Adaptive Planning, which has an overall rating of 4.7/5 based on 408 reviews as of April 30, 2024. 

We believe this recognition reflects strong engagement with our solution, high customer satisfaction, and deep appreciation of our advanced modern planning capabilities. Specifically, we believe it reflects how Workday Adaptive Planning, powered by embedded AI, enables decision-makers to collaborate seamlessly, plan continuously, and adapt quickly.
