Global Communication Technologies Company Begins New Era With Greater Agility, Speed, and Workforce Visibility

PLEASANTON, CA and VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced that Siemens Convergence Creators, a leading software solution and service provider in the fields of communications, media, and technology, has selected Workday Human Capital Management (HCM). With Workday, Siemens Convergence Creators will be able to move its HR operations off of multiple legacy systems and into the cloud for a technology foundation that is agile, fast, and architected to provide workforce analytics that will support the company for its growth, greater efficiency and leaner processes.

Siemens Convergence Creators wanted one global, modern HR system that could adapt with growth and change, engage the entire organization, and provide deeper visibility into its workforce, which spans across 10 countries.

With Workday, Siemens Convergence Creators plans to:

  • Create one global people management system, enabling management to work with a single source of truth about its workforce, such as headcount, for accurate planning and decision-making.
  • Access analytics that provide greater insight into employee skill sets and capability gaps to help support planning for customer projects. With Workday, the company will be able to leverage a unified search framework to easily identify employees who may fill those gaps. For example, employees who speak French and have specific technical skills.
  • Standardize HR processes worldwide, streamlining operations for growth and increasing efficiencies throughout the business. Siemens Convergence Creators will easily be able to configure business processes, such as workflows, and make changes as business needs evolve, and compliance needs change.
  • Empower employees with greater mobile capabilities using a simple, intuitive interface, giving them the ability to access information and take action from anywhere and at any time. For example, employees will be able to submit time and absence requests directly from their mobile phones.
  • Leverage continuous innovation from Workday's development on a single code line delivered in the cloud.
