The Workday Industry Accelerators program is now available in the EMEA region. The program consists of software and consulting services for banks, insurers and other financial companies. According to Workday, the services help quickly migrate finance and HR processes to the cloud.

The Workday Industry Accelerators program was initially launched in the United States. The next step is the EMEA region. The range of industry-specific software and consulting services is now available to banks, insurers and other financial companies.

Workday Industry Accelerators

Several tech firms offer accelerator programs. The programs typically consist of existing software products with industry-specific customizations and services. As a result, companies within an industry can adopt the product(s) more quickly and easily.

In Workday’s case, the accelerator program caters to companies in the financial industry, including banks and insurers. According to Workday, the services help financial companies quickly migrate finance and HR processes to the cloud.

All services revolve around one or multiple existing Workday software products, including Financial Management and Accounting Center. The products run on the Workday Enterprise Management Cloud platform. Workday’s partners help customers migrate to the platform. The first partners are Deloitte and PwC.

“Industry accelerators are a way for our customers to get to the cloud faster”, said Pete Schlampp, chief strategy officer at Workday. “It’s a means of getting customers to cloud deployments through proven means that ourselves and our partners (like KPMG, Deloitte, Accenture, PWC and others) have determined as tried and tested routes to cloud.”

Availability

The Workday Industry Accelerators program is now available in the EMEA region. The services are initially tailored to companies in the financial industry, but Workday expects to expand to new industries over time.
