I attended Workday Rising last year as a prospect. This year, several of my Time Warner Inc. colleagues and I are in Las Vegas attending as customers. It’s a different perspective, but one thing is consistent: Workday employees’ enthusiasm, which I think goes a long way.
To call Darwin John a unique human being is a majestic understatement. After a childhood spent working the dusty Utah soil of his father’s beet farm, he went on to become CIO of both the FBI and the Church of the Latter Day Saints--where he became the customer and close friend of Workday co-founder, Dave Duffield.
Last fall we introduced Workday Student Recruiting, the first application as part of Workday Student. We’ve worked closely with colleges and universities to design this offering and have developed a deep understanding of the pressures they face to get student recruiting right.
There’s a lot of buzz these days about the outlook for tomorrow’s talent. Global companies and higher education institutions talk about the skills gap, the impact of intelligent technologies on jobs, and staggering college loan debts. Here's how we can bring together different members of our community to establish a clear path forward.
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.
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.
At Workday, we have a yearly goal that never changes—to help our customers realize as much value as they can from our products and services. Emily McEvilly, senior vice president of services, shares her top three picks for how your organization can get more out of Workday in 2018.
Today we feature a Q&A with Gary Roberts, senior vice president and CIO for JDA Software. Roberts has served in executive IT leadership roles for more than 20 years and across multiple industries including financial services, manufacturing, and technology. He's been with JDA Software since 2012, and led the company's selection and deployment of Workday Financial Management and Workday Human Capital Management.
Today we wrapped up our first Workday Rising Europe customer event in London. Our customers share what they liked most about the event in this short video, and also answer the question, “Where should we have the next Workday Rising Europe?” We’re inspired by their answers.
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.

At Workday we talk a lot about how our architecture and cloud applications were designed to avoid a lot of the problems of legacy ERP software. Yet another big differentiator is how the Workday partner ecosystem also was designed to be better for our customers. What’s different about our approach struck me when I was attending my first Workday Altitude, our annual partner conference.
