Frequently Asked Workday Driver Questions

Learn more about Workday drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


Workday is a cloud-based software platform that provides a suite of financial management and human capital management (HCM) applications. It is designed to help organizations streamline their business processes related to finance, human resources, and planning. Workday is used by businesses and organizations to improve efficiency, enhance collaboration, and gain insights into their workforce and financial performance. It is popular among medium to large-sized enterprises and is known for its cloud-based, scalable, and user-friendly approach to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and human capital management.

The Workday driver acts like a bridge that facilitates communication between various applications and Workday, allowing the application to read data as if it were a relational database. The Workday driver abstracts the complexities of Workday APIs, authentication methods, and data types, making it simple for any application to connect to Workday data in real-time via standard SQL queries.

Working with a Workday Driver is different than connecting with Workday through other means. Workday API integrations require technical experience from a software developer or IT resources. Additionally, due to the constant evolution of APIs and services, once you build your integration you have to constantly maintain Workday integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our Workday Drivers offer codeless access to live Workday data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Workday data from any client application. Because our drivers conform to standard data interfaces like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET etc. they offer a consistent, maintenance-free interface to Workday data. We manage all of the complexities of Workday integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

If you need truly zero-maintenance integration, check out connectivity to Workday via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to Workday from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to Workday is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when Workday is updated.

Many organizations draw attention to their library of connectors. After all, data connectivity is a core capability needed for applications to maximize their business value. However, it is essential to understand exactly what you are getting when evaluating connectivity. Some vendors are happy to offer connectors that implement basic proof-of-concept level connectivity. These connectors may highlight the possibilities of working with Workday, but often only provide a fraction of capability. Finding real value from these connectors usually requires additional IT or development resources.

Unlike these POC-quality connectors, every CData Workday driver offers full-featured Workday data connectivity. The CData Workday drivers support extensive Workday integration, providing access to all of the Workday data and meta-data needed by enterprise integration or analytics projects. Each driver contains a powerful embedded SQL engine that offers applications easy and high-performance access to all Workday data. In addition, our drivers offer robust authentication and security capabilities, allowing users to connect securely across a wide range of enterprise configurations. Compare drivers and connectors to read more about some of the benefits of CData's driver connectivity.

With our drivers and connectors, every data source is essentially SQL-based. The CData Workday driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into Workday API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to Workday as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to Workday is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that Workday looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live Workday connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

The Workday drivers and connectors offer comprehensive access to Workday data. Our Workday driver exposes static and dynamic data and metadata, providing universal access to Workday data for any enterprise analytics or data mangement use. To explore the Workday driver data model, please review the edition-specific Workday driver documentation.

Using the CData Workday drivers and connectors, Workday can be easily integrated with almost any application. Any software or technology that can integrate with a database or connect with standards-based drivers like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, etc., can use our drivers for live Workday data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular Workday data integrations online.

Additionally, since Workday supported by CData Connect Cloud, we enable all kinds of new Workday cloud integrations.

Workday Analytics and Workday Cloud BI integration is universally supported for BI and data science. In addition, CData provides native client connectors for popular analytics applications like Power BI, Tableau, and Excel that simplify Workday data integration. Additionally, native Python connectors are widely available for data science and data engineering projects that integrate seamlessly with popular tools like Pandas, SQLAlchemy, Dash, and Petl.

Workday data integration is typically enabled with CData Sync, a robust any-to-any data pipeline solution that is easy to set up, runs everywhere, and offers comprehensive enterprise-class features for data engineering. CData Sync makes it easy to replicate Workday data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Workday replication. In addition, our Workday drivers and connectors can be easily embedded into a wide range of data integration tools to augment existing solutions.

Absolutely. The best way to integrate Workday with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The Workday Excel Add-In provides easy Workday integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to Workday from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access Workday just like you would another native Excel data source.
