Acxiom previously maintained over 70 back-office systems across the organization, resulting in inconsistent data and disjointed reporting. It selected Workday to simplify its overall technology landscape, improve data governance, reduce administration, and elevate the finance and HR functions.

Why Workday.

Acxiom has experienced many changes since going live on Workday. Adding recruiting and learning to the HR side has driven greater integration of insights, efficiencies, and business continuity.

Benefits and results.

Systems management.

Before Workday, Acxiom struggled with a segmented ERP landscape that required costly support, licensing, and upgrades. Now Acxiom has reduced the number of ERP integrations by 43% and significantly reduced overall TCO. HRIS is now more strategic and focused on supporting HR innovation versus large upgrade and baseline technical support.
