Many organizations have data that is difficult to access because it is spread across multiple sources. Gaining insight into this data requires numerous access points, multiple resources, and time-intensive business intelligence (BI) efforts. Workday Big Data Analytics makes it easy for executives and managers in HR and Finance to get this information by mashing up data from multiple sources, including Workday, using a simple and familiar interface. With this insight, informed decisions on critical business issues can be made quickly and confidently.
Big Data Analytics Explorer’s simple user interface allows you to explore and manipulate data from multiple sources. A spreadsheet interface with more than 240 built-in functions enables data analysts to quickly and easily capture and share insights, without involvement from IT.
Workday Big Data Analytics provides analytic templates to accelerate insight into pressing HR and finance business scenarios.
