At Workday Rising 2014 a number of customers took the stage to share stories about the business benefits they're seeing with Workday Financial Management, underscoring the community's growth and momentum. But what really stood out for me were the stories about letting go of the familiar—legacy systems and processes—and coming out on the other side with something that delivers far more value.
Are your ready for Workday Rising 2015, taking place Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas? To get an idea of what's to come, check out highlights from last year's event in San Francisco.
During the Workday Rising 2014 opening keynote, the Workday leadership team shared exciting details around Workday Insight Applications, a set of revolutionary applications for business, financial management, and human capital management leaders based on the latest innovations in data science. Our executives also shared news about upcoming capabilities and products for our Workday Financial Management suite and the availability of the new Workday mobile experience.
This week Workday presented Allied Global with our first Workday Inspire Award. This award recognizes outstanding customers that are doing an amazing job of leveraging business insights from Workday to deliver quantifiable results for their organizations.
This week we’re hosting our Workday Rising customer conference, one of our favorite events of the year. It provides us the opportunity to get together with customers and partners to announce new products, share our future vision, and to hear more about what’s on their minds. It’s also the time when we reveal the results of our annual customer satisfaction survey.
Today at Workday Rising 2014, we introduced a new mobile experience as part of our commitment to deliver continuous and relevant innovations to our customers. In the design and development of our new mobile experience, we continue to explore the latest trends and technology advances among leading consumer applications and listened to customers about their needs. Mobile usage has spiked tremendously within our customer base over the past year—we’ve seen a 400% increase in transaction volume coming from mobile devices. To support this rapid growth, we looked for new ways to engage our on-the-go customers.
This week, more than 4,500 customers, prospective customers, partners, and employees will come together for Workday Rising 2014 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. We often celebrate milestones each year at Workday Rising, and this year we have a lot to celebrate with our Workday Financial Management customers. We’ll have a lot to discuss this week, but I think there are two key themes that are top-of-mind for most customers and prospective customers as we continue to welcome more corporate finance teams to the cloud.
Workday Rising 2013 in San Francisco got off to an exciting start yesterday with news announcements from Workday Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri during their keynote address. Watch the highlights from those announcements in this five-minute video.
At last year’s Workday Rising our Co-Founder and Co-CEO Aneel Bhusri announced our plans to offer Workday Big Data Analytics. Earlier today, Aneel announced during his Workday Rising 2013 keynote address that Workday Big Data Analytics is now available as part of our latest update, Workday 20. The timing is very fitting, and not just because it’s our annual customer conference.
On July 8, Brown University went live on Workday Financial Management and Grants Management. This is a big deal for us, and I think it will be helpful to share with others both the impact of having this unified data and some lessons learned from our deployment.
At our Workday Rising user conference in November I had the pleasure of talking with David Dobrin, an industry analyst who always seems to have an interesting idea to kick around. We were talking about the reporting that comes out of traditional business and financial systems and how it seems to generally disappoint. My view is that this is because these systems were built to do financial accounting (GAAP), and when we ask them to do more, they struggle. That is when David delivered the gem of the conversation: "Of course, because operational reporting is disruptive." Huh! Now that’s an interesting thought.
