A substantial investment of resources and time has gone into Workday’s reporting and analytics functionality. As such, with business intelligence embedded directly, the Workday Reporting and Analytics gives users the ability to access and analyze data, research that data, before taking the right action— directly from the Workday HR system without error. Workday analytics also deliver efficient cost and time savings by improving the enablement of managers to have access to their own data and analyze it, while freeing the IT staff, but the most noteworthy advantage is how it improves decision -making by providing the right facts at the right time to the right resources. Furthermore, business insight is fast and dynamic with the simple but multi-dimensional capabilities that allow a proper action to be applied in the HR system over any report. Therefore, reports can be custom-made. Clients also have the option to leverage one of the various packaged reports Workday provides.

Asides Workday’s HR and Financial System inbuilt reporting functionality, Workday has recently acquired big data firm called Platfora that will further enhance its analytics power.

Overall, this merger will birth new reporting capabilities and enhanced analytics capabilities providing big organizations with unprecedented business insight. It will not only redefine how organizations run, but also help to redefine how these organizations run their reporting and analytics with a solution that is smarter, faster, and easier.


  1. Hi Bru,

    Nice tutorial! Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this works. I would like to put this all to rest.

    1. Navigation: System Administrator –> Security –> Responsibility –> Define (Open it)
    Here search with required responsibility and copy the request group name and close this form.
    2. Navigation: System Administrator –> Security –> Responsibility –> Request (Open it)
    Here search with the copied request group name.
    3. Provide Values: Then we can see the concurrent programs associated to that group. Add the concurrent program which is required for us.
    In your case add Payroll Archive here. Choose Type as Program , and enter Name as Concurrent Program Name (Payroll Archive) , and save the work.
    Appreciate your effort for making such useful blogs and helping the community.
    Many Thanks,

  3. NayHoh,

    I love all the posts, I really enjoyed.
    I would like more information about this, because it is very nice., Thanks for sharing.

    Can you please let me know which package and procedure calls when we run the standard oracle report ‘Multiple Worksite Report for SPWL process’ which is based on PYUGEN.

    As for as I know, we can check in the pay_report_format_mappings_f where report_type = (short name of the concurrent progam). But, I can not find any record for this report in this table.

    So, how can we find out the package and procedure name which calls when we run this report.
    I look forward to see your next updates.
    Many Thanks,

  4. Hey,
    Gratitude for putting up this prolific article! You truly make everything a cake walk. Genuinely good stuff, saving time and energy.

    On which topic you are looking for in HRMS? There are lots of topics in HRMS Like Payroll, Employee creation or updation, element entries absence so on. There are lots of documents under Documents Section in our Club-Oracle Site itself. You can browse the documents under HRMS Section in Documents Area.
    Very useful article, if I run into challenges along the way, I will share them here.


  5. Hi Buddy,

    You make learning and reading addictive. All eyes fixed on you. Thank you being such a good and trust worthy guide.

    will like to check are there any DBI items that store the previous ‘adjustment’ amount for the salary components for FF. Or are there any methods/ways that I should look into to retrieve all the salary components and sum it all up to have an absolute salary component amount?

    It seems that CMP_ASSIGNMENT_RGE_SALARY_CHANGE_AMOUNT[N] only stores the latest ‘adjustment’ amount.

    By the way do you have any YouTube videos, would love to watch it. I would like to connect you on LinkedIn, great to have experts like you in my connection (In case, if you don’t have any issues). I started using workday certification blog for my training practice.
    Please keep providing such valuable information.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Morgan lee

  6. “Hello There,

    Allow me to show my gratitude bloggers. You guys are like unicorns. Never seen but always spreading magic. Your content is yummy. So satisfied.

    Am currently implementing for an workday certification which has a branch in South Africa, so I created another business group because of their legislature over there. I need to know if there any concurrent programs one has to run any concurrent program after creating the business group so/if their statutory deductions would be automatically created and calculated.

    Thanks a lot. This was a perfect step-by-step guide. Don’t think it could have been done better.

    Kind Regards,
