Track: Exhibitor

Session Number: 9908
Date: Mon, Feb 27th, 2023
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Description:

Given an ERP/SIS transformation may only be undertaken once every 20 years, the transition to Workday is your opportunity to innovate, break the mold, and tackle strategic initiatives in new and exciting ways. Often these types of approaches are put aside during implementation to focus on core operational requirements, but going live is just the beginning of your Workday journey. Join us to learn how to take your Workday experience to the next level.

Come and hear from two Accenture Leaders, both focused on Workday Strategy and Optimization, on how to think outside of the box with Workday's unique innovation toolset. We'll review real world use cases featuring Prism, Extend, Request Framework, creative custom reporting, and more.
