Workiva has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with SAP, allowing its enterprise cloud platform for data collaboration, reporting and compliance, Wdesk, to be bundled into SAP’s enterprise management platform.

Through this agreement, Workiva will provide a first-party integration with the Wdesk platform using the SAP Cloud Platform Integration service. The bundled solutions are expected to provide customers with linking, auditability and control features.

SAP users can integrate their business data directly into the Wdesk platform, accessing the full capabilities of Wdesk, including synchronized data, dynamic commentary, controlled collaboration, granular permissions and audit trails. Wdesk works by creating a narrative linked to data across documents, spreadsheets, presentations and reports.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates that Workiva and SAP are committed to providing customers with a rich integration experience,” stated Matt Rizai, chairman and CEO of Workiva. “Through our OEM partnership, we will help customers all over the world improve the value of their business data.”

“SAP customers across every industry are looking to leverage cloud technology to improve data collaboration, reduce costs and gain greater business insights,” added Diane Fanelli, senior vice president of platform channels at SAP. “Our partnership with Workiva will help our customers improve data integrity and drive better business performance.”
