What is simplicity? It’s a deceptively simple question, isn’t it? Especially if you happen to be a business or organisation looking for enterprise applications in today’s marketplace.

After visiting with customers, partners, and prospective customers in cities throughout Europe, I finished a month-long trip with a stop at Workday’s Amsterdam office last week. The timing was perfect, as I was able to tour our new state-of-the-art training centre for customers and partners. Today, the centre opened for training! Our European team is very excited about this new facility for many reasons, including its impact on the following areas.
Today we are hosting the first Workday Rising Europe in London, designed specifically for our customers in Europe. This event will also benefit others wanting to learn more about Workday from our team members and customers. It’s also my first Workday Rising! Having heard about these legendary customer events in the U.S., I know our London gathering will be a great one. The interest in Workday Rising Europe among customers and prospective customers has exceeded our expectations, and all of us at Workday are incredibly honoured by such enthusiasm.
