There are many aspects to the Power of One, but we believe Workday’s single architecture truly sets us apart. You can watch all our Power of One videos here.

As one example, we define our application logic as metadata. As Joe Korngiebel explains, “We describe what we want our applications to do without hard coding to a specific technology stack.” This way, we can decouple our applications from the underlying technology services that make them run. This allows our customers to take advantage of the latest innovations, and is very different from the traditional enterprise software world, which typically depends on full software updates to deliver innovation.
