July 27, 2017

Wdesk Will Improve Business Value of ERP Data

AMES, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Workiva (NYSE:WK), a leading provider of solutions for enterprise productivity , today announces data integration between its Wdesk platform and more than 100 cloud, SaaS and on-premise applications, including Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud.

Integrating enterprise business systems with Wdesk enables customers to directly connect the datasets they need into a central hub of trusted data, with powerful linking, auditability and control features. Wdesk gives users the ability to combine narrative with their data, which further improves a wide range of financial, regulatory and corporate performance management functions.

“Expanding the amount of data that Wdesk users can directly access amplifies the power of Wdesk throughout our customers’ organizations,” said Matt Rizai, Chairman and CEO of Workiva.

“With the click of a button, Wdesk users add a layer of access, collaboration, control and accountability to their enterprise business data,” said Rizai. “Our new integration framework helps our customers greatly improve the business value of their ERP and other data.”

Key capabilities of Wdesk data integration include:

  • Automation - Data integration eliminates the need to manually export data from enterprise business systems. With Wdesk linking, every change to the imported data is automatically updated in all instances, which makes it easier to locate and validate data.
  • Aggregation - Users can connect Wdesk to one or multiple external systems to create records of data that can be used as sources for lookups and aggregations.
  • Governance - Like all data in Wdesk, data integrated from enterprise systems creates a comprehensive audit trail. Wdesk provides a detailed history of source systems, datasets, date and time of updates and who imported or exported data.
  • Consistency - Data from external systems can be leveraged across the Wdesk platform using formulas and links—creating a single, comprehensive source of trusted data.

Once the data is integrated into Wdesk, the platform enables users to collaborate simultaneously, centralize and link data, control data permissions down to the cell level and streamline workflow with commenting, tasking, black-line comparisons, dashboard tracking and digital reporting.

Wdesk data integration gives our customers more tools to improve transparency and consistency across all of their data sets,” said Rizai. “Better data drives better decisions.”

Wdesk data integration is available today. Workiva customers can use a Wdesk connector or build their own integrations through the Wdesk API.

Workiva is a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

Wdesk data integrations are also powered by the Dell Boomi platform, which provides a unified, online development and management environment that supports application integration needs across a hybrid IT infrastructure.
