The Power to Adapt: Moving Beyond the ERP of the Past

As the global stage continues to evolve, organizations must have the right technology in place to navigate a constantly changing world. Learn how Workday Enterprise Management Cloud Platform is enabling adaptable organizations.

Market changes, global disruptions, competitive pressures, and rapid innovations in technology are shifting the business landscape faster than ever before. At the same time, the world’s workforce is undergoing a massive transformation in how, when, and where employees work. Add shifting industry dynamics—such as competitive movements, changing customer expectations and behaviors, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and compliance mandates—and you’ll see why companies must innovate or be left behind. 

There is a gap between increasing demands on the business and an organization’s ability to keep up. In short, the race to digital transformation is on—and CIOs are leading the charge. To keep from falling behind, they must move beyond ERP toward an approach that enables adaptability. This is critical for businesses to be able to innovate more, grow faster, and better engage employees.
