On Tuesday, September 27, Microsoft and Workday announced an integration/cooperation agreement, under which Microsoft Office 365 and the company's analytics tools will be integrated with Workday's cloud-based finance and HR applications.
Announcing the new pact, Microsoft and Workday said that they have teamed up to give Office 365 Groups the capability to work with Workday applications in such a way that any change made in Workday will automatically show up in Groups.
In addition, Microsoft and Workday also committed to work towards making the sharing of information possible between Microsoft Flow and Workday's dynamic business process framework.
Another noteworthy plan which Microsoft and Workday will try to materialize as part of their pact is to pave the way for connectivity of Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) with the Microsoft Graph, the set of programming interfaces that help extend as well as connect Microsoft apps and services.
According to the information shared by Microsoft and Workday while announcing their new agreement, the companies will hopefully start delivering the different integrations in the second quarter of 2017.
