The Amplify general session featured Workiva leadership and customers who highlighted the need for stability and experience when building trust in business data and processes in an age of transformation.

Workiva customers Allstate, Newell Brands, Takeda and more shared how they have used the Workiva platform to create connected ecosystems across their organizations, meet regulations and implement controls and reporting processes in record time, and transform their business.

Workiva Platform Enhancements

Workiva experts highlighted enhancements made to the Workiva platform over the past year that solve the challenges of complex work.

Wdata Chains, a new automation capability that enables Workiva platform users to create and manage linear sequences of tasks and events, was among the latest automation features showcased. Wdata Chains connects to external systems and automates data updates to any report within the Workiva platform. This saves Workiva customer time and builds even more confidence in the reporting process.

Adding Value with the Workiva Partner Ecosystem

On day two of the conference, attendees explored their overall digital transformation strategy and learned how Workiva’s partner ecosystem can help them achieve their goals.

Workiva experts announced over 75 advisory firms globally, including leading Top 50 accounting firms and three of the Big 4 accounting firms, that are available to assist Workiva customers as they expand their use of the platform. 12 global sessions featured technology and advisory partners who shared best practices for improving global statutory reporting, insurance reporting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and more.
