Microsoft has partnered with technology company Workday to help enterprises improve their daily business operations, collaboration, productivity and security.
As part of the partnership, Workday customers can run Workday Adaptive Planning – the firm’s data and insights platform – on the Microsoft Azure cloud which will offer enhanced security. Microsoft will adopt the solution for its finance teams to accelerate decision-making in budgeting and other processes.
“Now, more than ever, planning takes centre stage as companies return to the workplace, rebuild supply chains, and in some cases reimagine their businesses in our rapidly changing world,” said Tom Bogan, vice chairman of Workday. “With cloud planning at scale and even tighter integration to help customers collaborate, this partnership underscores what Workday was built for – to help customers unlock potential in their people and the business even in the most dynamic environments.”
According to Microsoft, the new integrations between Microsoft and Workday solutions aim to deliver a more connected workspace and frictionless access for enterprise customers. For example, Microsoft Teams with Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) simplify tasks such as submitting expenses and requesting leave within Microsoft Teams. Employees can also ask chatbot Workday Assistant questions to speed up activities.
“At Microsoft, we’re hyper-focused on continually innovating new ways to empower every person and organisation around the world with the tools and insights they need to securely drive productivity and business performance,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s One Commercial Partner organisation. “In partnership with Workday, we’ll deliver new solutions that connect the people and financial insights of Workday to the cloud productivity of Microsoft Teams and cloud platform of Azure, so our joint customers can do more.”
