While it is very early days, we have been actively researching the possibilities and have envisioned a wide variety of use cases that could create value for the Workday customer community.
What’s clear right now is that the future of technology is open, and we’ve shared our commitment to openness. Distributed collaboration and openness are the central ideas underpinning blockchain. By taking a seat at the table as these technologies begin to take shape, we can use our deep understanding of our customers’ business needs to truly build for the future.
Remember, in 2005, when on-premise applications were the standard, we innovated to transform enterprise software in the cloud. Since then we have continued to harness the latest technologies as they are developed—from those you see, like our mobile applications, to those you don’t, like solving business problems via intelligent automation and the back-end systems that power our cloud infrastructure. As we continue down this path of continuous innovation, in the future, blockchain will become another part of our technology toolkit—providing a new level of trust and integrity to Workday services.
