Opera Software Selects Workday, Inc.'s Workday Human Capital Management

Workday, Inc. announced that Opera Software (Opera) has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), including Workday Recruiting. With Workday, Opera will unify recruiting, talent management, and human resources operations in the cloud, and modernise the way the company manages its workforce with greater flexibility, speed, and data insight about its people. With offices in 28 locations around the world, Opera crafts products and services that connect 350 million people to the Internet. The company has three lines of business including Opera web browsers, Opera Mediaworks, and Opera's operator solutions. During the last few years, Opera has grown and changed rapidly, with the business evolving through multiple mergers and acquisitions. Challenged by a legacy HR system unable to keep pace with growth, Opera is moving its HR operations to the Workday cloud, creating a modern and mobile technology foundation built to support future growth and transform the management of its workforce. Real-Time Insight into the Workforce: Workday HCM captures information at every stage of the talent lifecycle, from recruiting to succession, in one complete system, creating a single source for data and insights. With built-in analytics and reporting, Workday will provide Opera with real-time analysis of its workforce, such as employee costs and current and projected capability gaps, enabling faster and better decision-making. Workday also will give managers greater insights into their employees and teams, helping them to better measure performance, recognise top talent, and align skills sets with roles. Streamlining HR Operations Globally: With Workday's built-in business process framework, Opera will standardise HR processes worldwide, streamlining operations for growth and increasing efficiencies throughout the business. Opera will easily be able to configure internal processes, such as workflows and organisational structures, and make changes as business needs evolve without involving IT. Intuitive User Experience: Built for mobile first, Workday will empower Opera employees with greater self-service capabilities from any smartphone, tablet, or desktop, enabling them to perform tasks, access information, and take action from anywhere, at any time. Workday delivers an intuitive user experience, similar to consumer web applications, making it simple for employees to use and easier for Opera to engage with its workforce. For example, with Workday Recruiting, managers can easily share job candidates with their team from any mobile device to get early feedback ahead of investing in an interview, improving collaboration and saving time.

Workday, Inc. announced that TalkTalk has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Time Tracking, and Workday Recruiting. Moving from an on-premise legacy system to Workday's unified suite of cloud applications for human resources (HR), TalkTalk will gain the flexibility and speed it needs to keep pace with growth, through greater insights into its talent pool, to improve workforce planning and to make faster and smarter business decisions. With Workday, TalkTalk will have an agile technology foundation delivered in the cloud that can easily adapt to organizational and market changes. Workday's unique business process framework will enable TalkTalk to automate HR processes while maintaining the flexibility to easily adapt to new or changing business requirements, such as configuring a new approval workflow or adding and amending steps in a particular process. Workday will also provide TalkTalk with a single source for data, capturing information at every stage of the talent lifecycle in one complete seamless system, from recruiting and onboarding to performance and succession. With this base of data, TalkTalk will have a holistic view of its workforce, empowering managers with greater visibility into their talent.

With the introduction of Workday, managers and employees will have greater self-service capabilities to perform tasks, explore information, and take action from any mobile device. For example, managers can easily complete administrative tasks, such as approving time off and managing annual pay reviews, anywhere, from any device, enabling them to make timely decisions on the move. Employees will also be able to easily access information and complete tasks, such as updating personal data or requesting time off, at any time and from anywhere, creating a more mobile, empowered workforce.

Workday, Inc. Unveils Composite Reporting

Workday, Inc. unveiled Composite Reporting, a new tool that advances the breadth and depth of functionality in Workday Financial Management for large organizations. Designed in partnership with customers, including CEC Entertainment, Life Time Fitness, and Netflix, Composite Reporting transforms the way finance teams build, interact with, and deploy multi-dimensional financial and operational reports directly in Workday by merging the familiarity and flexibility of a spreadsheet with enterprise-grade performance and security. In addition to Composite Reporting, Workday also announced the availability of new features that deepen the value of Workday Financial Management for industry verticals, including financial services; software and internet services; and education, government, and non-profit. Composite Reporting and industry-specific capabilities for finance are available as part of the company's latest release, Workday 23, which also includes new features for Workday Human Capital Management and Workday Student. The new features are all delivered to customers via continuous development on a single code line. Spreadsheets are among the most ubiquitous tools in corporate finance but require considerable time to create, manage, reconcile, and control. To develop board-ready reports, finance teams have traditionally had to extract data from multiple systems, and then consolidate and format a series of spreadsheets into one static and stand-alone report. This manual process is tedious, inefficient, and creates risks in organizations already facing increased scrutiny in a highly regulated environment. With this in mind, Workday developed Composite Reporting, which enables customers to combine various data sources such as actuals, budgets, statistics, and headcount, into live multi-dimensional reports that users can format, drill down into, and act on all within Workday. As a result, corporate finance teams are able to build reports such as a balance sheet, income statement, or cash flow statement in a fraction of the time and effort required with traditional, legacy systems.
