Kainos: Innovate UK

  • How the UK’s innovation engine achieved business transformation with Workday and Kainos

    Innovate UK is the United Kingdom’s national innovation agency. A public body with over 500 employees, the organisation supports business-led innovation in all sectors, technologies, and UK regions. Headquartered in England, Innovate UK helps businesses grow through the development and commercialisation of new products, processes, and services, supported by an outstanding innovation ecosystem that is agile, inclusive, and easy to navigate.

    Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the national funding agency that invests in science and research in the UK.

    Previously, the organisation had been struggling with fragmented Finance and HR systems operating under many different data silos. Searching for a solution, Innovate UK needed to reduce costs, increase simplicity, and avoid reliance on third parties by bringing everything in-house.

    The team at Innovate UK partnered with Kainos to support their Workday deployment after a selection process which reviewed the modules they wanted to deploy, the costs, partners’ offerings, and whether each partner met the organisation’s procurement framework. Through this rigorous process, Kainos emerged as the clear solution for Innovate UK’s Workday needs.
