Workday rolls out Big Data Analytics module

The add-on is priced separately and focuses on analytics for HCM (human capital management)

By , IDG News Service |  Software

Pricing information for Big Data Analytics wasn't disclosed. But it will follow Workday's existing practice of using subscription pricing based on a company's size, Beck said. There's also usage-related pricing, on a scale ranging from 2TB to 50TB of compute and storage per year.

HR analytics has become an increasingly hot area in recent years as companies grapple with remaining competitive in a tumultuous economy.

Workday competes closely with the likes of Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM suite, for which Oracle recently released a series of specialized analytic applications. SAP also has various analytic capabilities in its SuccessFactors cloud-based HCM software.
