  • Connect to more data

    Capture, manage and combine data

    Blend, append and wrangle data, and easily combine inputs from multiple sources or systems without complex setup. Wdata enables you to automate data transfers from ERP, CRM, GRC, HCM or other on-premise and cloud-based systems to consolidate and manage large datasets in a single place. Unstructured data can also be sourced from standard desktop tools, documents and enterprise systems.

    Create and manage multiple data tables. Easily append data that may not exist in source systems. Connect and combine data from multiple tables using standard join functions, including right, left, inner and outer joins.

    Capture, manage, and combine data

    Add context to data

    Apply one or more customisable data tags or attributes to imported datasets. For example, enable query-based financial reports, including data source, date or period, or version—budget, forecast or actual.

    Create, manage and join dimension tables to data tables to enhance datasets and add metadata. Provide context or structure without predefined system mappings, such as account mapping, location hierarchy or exchange rate.

Learn what powers Wdata.

  • The fundamental problem that Workiva seeks to solve is availability of data in the right place at the right time.

  • Once you get the data to populate your reports, it's there to use for a plethora of other types of projects or reports.

  • We are able to spend more time reviewing and analyzing, and less time accumulating data and getting it into the document.

  • The next thing we started using Wdesk for was our Annual Statement footnotes. Depending on which reporting cycle it is, we can go in, make quick updates, input our data, and instead of having to reformat everything, it’s all there for us—and it looks nice.

  • You don’t have to worry about merging or keeping the document up-to-date because when you open it, you know it’s current.
