As we look ahead to Workday Rising in October, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on some of the takeaways from last year’s event. Here are three things we learned from a great slate of speakers on leadership, innovation, and the importance of staying agile during times of change.
What do Workday customers who are "high performers" do differently? Results of the 2017 Workday Value Index, a benchmarking and maturity assessment study, confirm what we believe is possible when customers optimize their use of Workday.
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.
Among the insights I can share with my peers is that the Workday customer collaboration process is unique to the enterprise software industry. Today, many of us will be arriving in Las Vegas to attend Workday Rising, which will serve as an introduction for new customers to the Workday community.
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.
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.
If business leaders knew the characteristics of high performers, would they make better staffing decisions? If they knew the factors that lead to costly voluntary turnover, would they change their retention strategies? And if they knew the true cost of getting work done, would they make better decisions on what regions to hire from or whether to use contractors? Of course they would.
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.
In 2006, Workday was a tiny HR software startup with one customer. Four years later, on a balmy Tuesday morning in San Francisco, co-founder Dave Duffield spoke to hundreds of Workday Rising conference attendees about the significance of the gathering.
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.
During a Business Leader Forum at Workday Rising, Sheila Marcelo, CEO at Care.com, sat down with Leighanne Levensaler, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Workday, to discuss changes to the workforce and the implications they have on our society.
At Workday, we’re always considering what we can do to help address the planet’s sustainability challenges. Learn how we're bringing the same sustainability commitment globally to Workday Rising by offsetting 100 percent of the emissions from travel, reducing and eliminating waste, and offering low-impact food choices.
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.
Gerald Chertavian is founder and CEO at Year Up, one of the fastest growing non-profits in the nation that helps urban young adults develop technical and professional skills that they apply during a six-month internship at a company. We had the opportunity to sit down with Chertavian following a presentation he gave to executive attendees at Workday Rising to discuss his passion for building bridges that lead more people out of poverty and into successful careers.
