It will be certain. To succeed in a new business environment, we must transform into a company with more active metabolism. However, the environment is changing rapidly and the gap with the execution of corporate strategy is widening. To fill this gap, we need to break away from past ERP models that rely on fragmented data. ” With the Enterprise Management Cloud, Workday “provides a robust and scalable foundation with the latest automation capabilities and enables cross-business data models to give you a complete picture of your data. Necessary for future business operations. By integrating and providing functions such as finance, human resources management, planning, and analysis into a single platform, we help companies strengthen their ability to make quick decisions and respond in a rapidly changing environment. ” Mr. Masai). At Workday, we are already developing the human resources management solution “Workday Human Capital Management (Workday HCM)” and the planning solution “Workday Adaptive Planning” in the Japanese market. According to Mr. Masai, there are 3550 companies that have introduced Workday HCM in the world, and 5600 companies that have introduced Workday Adaptive Planning. In addition to the fact that 1100 companies around the world have introduced financial management, which will be launched in Japan this time, Cookpad Inc. is said to have introduced Workday financial management together with Workday HCM in Japan. Workday Financial Management has general accounting functions such as accounting / finance, revenue management, financial reporting, consolidation, and can be combined with data stored in Workday HCM and other systems to provide financial information. You will be able to manage human resources information in an integrated manner. Since it supports the accounting standards of each country, it also implements functions for the Japanese market that support consumption tax and tax withholding. Mr. Masai said, “Since a common employee master and organizational master are used from both human resources and financial business applications, it is possible to quickly respond to organizational and business restructuring due to changes in the business environment. Also, financial and accounting. By linking the processing to employee data, it is possible to grasp the overall picture from both financial and human resources perspectives and utilize it in business operations. ” Mr. Masai also introduced the achievements of Workday financial management, “There is a case where 20 systems were integrated into one by introducing it because globally optimized finance operation is possible. In addition, BI function is built in the intelligent data infrastructure. Therefore, there are cases where the cost reduction of about 110 million yen was realized by eliminating the dedicated BI and eliminating the duplication of data. ” Mr. Masai says that the target in the Japanese market is “a company that plans to expand its financial base globally, a digital native growth company, and a company that promotes human resource transformation.” Partners include existing Workday service partners Accenture, Inc., Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting LLC, IBM Japan Ltd., and PwC Consulting LLC. Regarding the strengths of Workday Financial Management, Mr. Masai said, “This is not an extension of conventional ERP. It features a business process framework and an integration function with human resources information, which enables management to make accurate decisions. It’s a platform. “
