This technology enables companies to manage large, data-intensive models with an engine that is:

  • Flexible—lets you model the way that makes sense for your business, pulling in data relevant to your needs, and on your own cadence
  • Scalable—adds memory and computing power when you need, allowing users to plan using a virtually unlimited number of dimensions and versions
  • Comprehensive—end-to-end planning within any function, from revenue and cash flow, to modeling, reporting, and analytics; all departments and functions can have their own models so they can plan for their own business, while contributing to the corporate financial plan

With a dynamic planning and analysis process with active dashboards, you can immediately see how your input impacts your business. Built with business users in mind, Workday Adaptive Planning lets you work directly in the dashboards, so you can drill down or make changes that will propagate throughout the system. Insights come to the forefront and you can spend your time on strategic activities, rather than gathering and scrubbing data. The easy-to-use interface also ensures that even business leaders outside of finance can comfortably participate in the planning process.

What-If Scenario Modeling

Core to becoming an agile business is being able to plan for a variety of outcomes and course-correcting measures. You can get a blueprint of how your changes will impact other areas of your business with powerful scenario planning capabilities.

Ask questions such as:

  • What if we push out our hire dates by three weeks?
  • How will this impact sales revenue?
  • Which changes would we need to make to our territory planning if we followed through with that?
  • In which way does this impact our financial position at the end of the quarter?

With each department able to test scenarios for its own area of the business, the organization as a whole can incorporate those scenarios into its plans, and optimize the overall corporate strategy.
