The Workday Cloud Platform provides professional developers—and now the aforementioned citizen developers—with the ability to extend the power of Workday’s frameworks, and business object model, in ways that drive additional value for their particular business. In other words, although we have always had a myriad of ways to extend Workday, there are some situations where a customer’s needs are so particular that they are better suited applying their own expertise rather than teaching us what they already know. This way, we focus on what we’re best at, and our customers can do the same.
The Workday Cloud Platform is currently available to our early adopter customers, many of whom already have important applications live and in production. We will be progressively expanding both the type of use cases that we support, and the number of customers we are working with, as we head toward the full general availability of the Workday Cloud Platform in 2019.
