Workday Accelerator




It’s All About your Data

RainierAEV™ for Workday provides pre-built, Data-Centric automated testing for all of the primary modules available from Workday, including HCM, Payroll, Financials, and more.  Accessed through the cloud, RainierAEV™ for Workday scans your specific configurations and condition rules to provide a testing solution fully customized to your tenants on day 1.  As the only Data-Centric testing solution for Workday, RainierAEV™ will mine the data from your tenants using encryption to protect PII and sensitive data, use Business Intelligence (BI) technology to

analyze it, and will provide you with specific, optimized recommendations on what combinations of your data that you should test.  You can run tests on command or schedule them to execute fully autonomously using RainierAEV™’s Outlook-like Calendar.  When tests run, you get e-mails with direct links to auto-generated reports, or you can login to your dashboard and click on your recent runs.  Your dashboard will take you straight to interactive reports that hide unnecessary information, while showing you all of the detail around any issues that were found.

Because north of 80% of all Workday production issues are the result of bad or dirty production data[1], RainierAEV™ incorporates Production Analytics™ to find and help cure these problems.  As the first and only Data-Centric testing solution for Workday, the Production Analytics™ module within RainierAEV™ will visualize for you exactly what your mix of transactions looks like in production, based upon the data actually flowing through those transactions.  RainierAEV™ will then automatically turn those transactions into tests, allowing you to not only validate your Business Processes, but more importantly to validate that all of your production data works with your specific Configurations and Condition Rules.  You will find more problems before they ever get to Production, reducing your support costs, increasing user engagement, and significantly improving the ROI from your Workday investment.

And RainierAEV™ for Workday does not stop with the analysis and testing of your data, Configurations and Condition Rules.  Complete Integrations testing is also covered, which includes the ability to functionally test both upstream and downstream applications for comprehensive End-to-End testing.  Security Group assignments are also validated by Worker on multiple levels.  You will be able to make sure that your complete, cross-application business processes run as they should, for the right people, for all of your different data types and combinations.

Security Groups, SoD & Regulatory

RainierAEV™ for Workday autonomously mines and visualizes your Security Group assignments by Worker, giving you a comprehensive corporate-level view of your security.  Areas of concern are automatically identified, highlighted and precisely documented, allowing you to quickly focus on and rectify problem assignments.

Checks for Separation of Duties (SoD) violations are automatically performed on a cadence that you choose.  These in-depth verifications identify specific problems and show why they are problems, allowing you to quickly implement remediations with full Forensic tracking support.

The RainierAEV™’s ReportHub™ provides both out-of-the-box reports and support for customized reporting to help you quickly and cost-effectively meet regulatory compliance documentation needs.

Interactive, Customizable Reporting

The RainierAEV™ ReportHub™ provides a range of out-of-the-box, interactive visual reporting that hides unnecessary information while highlighting relevant, important results.  This capability allows you to focus in on issues requiring your attention faster and more seamlessly, significantly reducing management time and avoiding oversight of important issues.

RainierAEV™ for Workday also allows you to easily customize existing reports, or create new reports from scratch using industry-standard reporting tools.  No need to learn a proprietary tool or reporting language to get exactly the reports that you, your management, audit team and regulatory compliance officers require.

Configuration & Condition Rule Testing

Whether you are currently implementing or have been using Workday for years, changes to your Configurations and Condition Rules are an on-going reality.  RainierAEV™ for Workday allows you to easily capture these changes and then comprehensively test for impacts by analyzing the effects upon your application data and how that data gets processed.  Based upon this deep inspection, RainierAEV™ identifies specific tests that need to be run, ones that do not need to be executed, and then auto-creates autonomous tests to thoroughly validate the impacts.  Gone are the days of ‘surprises’ caused by corner cases or un-anticipated side effects, allowing you to implement changes confidently and without impact to your production environment.

Deep Data Search

Because RainierAEV™ tracks and manages all application and testing data down to the field level, you can query RainierAEV™ at any point to see exactly what application data has been tested, how it was tested, when it was tested, and the precise results.  This can significantly help in performing root cause analysis, letting you spend less time tracking down problems while increasing Workday availability.
