Workiva Upgrades All Customers to its Next Generation Cloud Platform

Workiva Inc., the company that simplifies complex work, announced that it has upgraded its entire global customer base to its next-generation Workiva Cloud Platform. The new platform is more open, intelligent and intuitive than its predecessor, enabling organisations worldwide to improve how they connect data and teams and streamline processes.

“Our new platform is more open and scalable,” said Workiva Chief Operating Officer Julie Iskow. “We can now more quickly build and deliver new fit-for-purpose solutions that solve specific business problems and play a broader role in our customers’ digital transformation initiatives.”

Workiva’s new SaaS platform is built with a microservices architecture that enables rapid development and deployment of new solutions, rich APIs and platform features and functionality.

Using Workiva’s open APIs, customers integrate data from outside systems of record directly into the platform, where they automate data and workflow updates, track every change and seamlessly collaborate with colleagues around the world to create trusted reports and regulatory filings. Recent customer solutions built on the new platform include Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Reporting and Global Statutory Reporting.

Additionally, Workiva’s partners, which include over 200 global consulting firms, technology firms and regional consulting firms, are creating new solutions and services on top of the Workiva platform to solve their customers’ unique business challenges. “Our partners are instrumental in deploying our platform as a critical component in digital transformations across global enterprises,” added Iskow
