  • Delivering the HTML5 Experience to Workday Customers

    It’s that time again when Workday issues a new update as part of our regular innovation cycle, delivered three times a year. Per our usual practice, we have put out a news release that covers the highlights of Workday 16. As you can see, we were quite busy building new capabilities into our Financial Management, Human Capital Management, and Payroll applications. I want to thank all the great people in our product and technology organizations for yet another job well done.

  • Dreamforce 2011, Workday Tech Summit, and the Post-PC World

    For those of us that live in the SaaS or cloud world, Dreamforce is the main event of the year. This year's Dreamforce, held the last week of August, was no exception: 45,000 people registered to attend and some great product announcements came out of the event. It was a personally exciting time for me, as we announced a major partnership with, and earlier that week hosted our second Workday Tech Summit.

  • A Busy Saturday Afternoon

    Like all companies, Workday does everything possible to avoid system failures. Unfortunately, they can still happen and when they do, we have a special obligation to our customers to bring systems back online quickly and securely given our status as a leading cloud vendor.

  • Welcome to the Workday Integration Cloud

    Today we're formally launching the Workday Integration Cloud Platform, marking an important day for Workday, our customers, and our partners. Everyone in the Workday ecosystem can now use a proven set of tools we've developed to build integrations that connect Workday with other business systems and applications.

  • Welcome to the Present

    As an admitted technology junkie, I love watching as companies such as Google,, Apple, Facebook and a revitalized Microsoft continue to deliver innovation at such an unrelenting pace. I’ll openly admit to having a first-edition iPad, Droid and even a Palm Pre (which is a better device than its market traction suggests).

  • Optimism

    I am generally an optimistic person, and looking ahead at 2010 things feel pretty good. Conversations with HR and IT professionals are more upbeat than they’ve been in a long time. And even though analyst predictions for IT spending are only looking a little better than last year, companies seem to be back to planning and starting projects.

  • Milestones

    2009 has been another year of milestones for Workday. We’ve now passed the 100 customer mark and in spite of the toughest economic environment in a generation Workday is on track to grow bookings more than 50 percent this year. Customers are not just embracing Software-as-a-Service in large enterprises -- in the past quarter we are starting to hear large companies considering SaaS as a lower-risk option to an on-premise ERP deployment. That’s a huge change in perspective from a year ago.

  • Back Online

    The Workday team, like any SaaS provider or IT organization, does everything possible to eliminate the possibility of unplanned system failures. We also have detailed plans in place for getting customers back online as quickly as possible in the event of an unplanned outage.
