We’re excited to announce that once again, Workday has been recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large, and Global Enterprises. We believe this reflects our ongoing commitment to delivering a financial management system that helps our customers manage risk, identify new opportunities, and keep pace with change.
The iPod and eventually the iPhone made the Walkman obsolete, and consumers have shifted from personal productivity software to the Internet. Yet these innovations didn’t drive change—they resulted from a convergence of changes including new customer demands. Now we’re seeing a similar pattern in the world of enterprise software.
Innovation is critical to the success of our customers and our company, which is why Workday invests big in innovation, recently announcing a $250 million fund for Workday Ventures. Brittany Skoda, who just joined our team as vice president of investments, shares her thoughts on Workday Ventures, the need for diversity in the venture capital community, and why you’d better bring your game if you get the opportunity to golf with her.
With Workday Ventures, we want to create new opportunities to connect Workday customers with innovative solutions integrated into Workday's platform and partnership program. Leighanne Levensaler reveals the 12 inventive portfolio companies that will be joining us at Workday Rising. Stop by Workday Ventures Booth #908 to meet them!
