As the global Workday strategy lead for Accenture, it is my job to ensure we partner with our clients to enable their continuous innovation. If you want to talk about our clients innovating in their industries using Workday with immediate results, as I did in a recent blog about the Workday Cloud Platform, then the conversation must also include Workday Prism Analytics.
Workday Prism Analytics enables organizations to bring any external data into Workday, blend it with existing people or financial data, and present it natively through Workday’s powerful reporting framework—putting it in the hands of employees, managers and other leaders in a mobile-first fashion. This gives our clients a holistic set of insights into the business, and the most amazing part—this can be done lightning fast.
Why Workday Prism Analytics? Workday is the chosen cloud system for organizations that are investing in the most important element in their success, their people. Workday Prism Analytics provides global organizations the ability to put people at the center by unlocking key value-add analytics and insights from across the business about their processes, people and operations, which results in more intelligent business decisions. Workday Prism Analytics changes the conversation to Workday being the system insight and empowerment to achieve operational excellence.
Because of Workday Prism Analytics’ significance and its alignment to our incubating capabilities, I’d like to “pass the pen” to Bharath Srinivas, Workday Incubating Practice Lead for Accenture, who will take a deep dive into its benefits, including use cases that prove its value.
Perspective: Workday Prism Analytics’ value
I’m excited to share examples of our experience with the ease of use and rapid benefits we’ve seen with Workday Prism Analytics. During a recent engagement, we handed our laptop to the client, who was familiar with Workday but had no Workday Prism Analytics training, and said, “Give it a shot, tell us what you think.” In minutes, the client identified trends that could potentially save the business millions of dollars—now that is self-service analytics.
The Workday Prism Analytics advantage
Workday Prism Analytics will help you reduce the time it takes to make the best decisions possible by providing better visibility and insight across your business. Let’s dive into some of the leading use cases:
Workday Prism Analytics’ Power
The usefulness of Workday Prism Analytics was recently brought home in an internal meeting when someone asked, “How is our Workday practice doing?” Out came the iPad, and all the relevant information was instantly available. The reaction? “How did you do this and how soon can I get it?” The answer turned out to be 10 days. That’s how quickly we were able to get another part of our practice transitioned to Workday Prism Analytics.
For the above reasons and more, it’s clear that Workday Prism Analytics is a game changer. That’s why we’re "all in" on Workday Prism Analytics and Workday. Currently, Accenture DayNine offers more than 1,100 Workday certified consultants worldwide with more than 3,000 Workday certifications. We are proud to have been one of the first Workday partners to be certified as a Workday Prism Partner Product Lead, and that we have been asked to present at multiple Workday events to share our learnings from our proven delivery of Workday Prism Analytics projects of all sizes.
Bottom line, if you believe in the power of Workday, and we do, then you must believe in the power of Workday Prism Analytics.
