Today we launched Workday Next, a new initiative that serves as the hub for information and stories about our technology advancements, as well as the experts and up-and-comers behind them.
Here’s a little background on what Workday Next is and why we decided to roll out this initiative.
When we announced Workday Insight Applications last November, followed by the availability of Workday Talent Insights in April, we went quite deep in our discussions about the technology and strategy behind these applications. We also shared stories on experts within Workday who applied data science and machine learning methods to build these predictive and prescriptive analytics capabilities.
We soon learned that people wanted to know more. Customers, potential employees, media, and analysts let us know they were intrigued by what Workday was doing in data science. This also prompted more questions about our efforts in areas such as user experience and mobile initiatives, and ongoing development of our core technology foundation.
We saw an opportunity to talk more about tech. Not just the innovation we’re delivering today, but what’s coming next for Workday and our customers—and that’s our hope for Workday Next.
We want this to be the focal point for you to find information and hear stories about our technology efforts, inventions, teams, and breakthroughs we believe are driving a new way for people to work and businesses to grow.
We’ve categorized this content into four pillars that best represent our focus areas: Workday Labs, Workday Sigma, Workday Stack, and Workday Ventures. Take a look below to find more content about each pillar. And please continue to follow Workday Next webpage to see our latest tech perspectives, news, and events.
