New orchestration, data, and logic capabilities within Workday Extend will help organizations advance their digital acceleration efforts and unlock new business value, improve employee engagement, and increase organizational agility.
Increase organizational agility
Organizational speed is a must-have, requiring businesses to move with agility and quickly adapt to change. Every company has its own unique digital processes and transactions, yet today many organizations are forced to move finance and HR data outside of the core system to connect these processes and integrate with third-party systems, adding complexity, cost, and risk.
Workday Extend empowers the Workday customer community to quickly build new apps that run within Workday core applications. With new capabilities and functionality, Workday Extend enables higher-value apps that increase employee engagement, streamline experiences, and optimize business processes while securely connecting Workday data to third-party systems. This deep extensibility uniquely keeps the context of data, process flow, user experience, and security in place to deliver enhanced app experiences, unlike systems that run outside of Workday or that only offer general purpose functions. Those systems require re-building integrations, rationalizing user interfaces and security, and then synchronizing separate copies of the same data. Now with Workday Extend, customers simplify the IT stack and keep finance and HR data more secure so that organizations can optimize their existing technology investment with minimal risk.
With Workday Orchestrate, now included with a Workday Extend subscription, app developers have the ability to orchestrate finance and people processes across Workday and third-party systems. These orchestrations are built visually using Orchestration Builder, a drag-and-drop user interface that provides guided, simplified low-code developer experiences to define logic, map data, and perform transformations. With this added functionality, Workday Extend helps foster a more connected and extensible Workday that enables organizations to innovate faster to address their specific needs and accelerate time-to-value.
