There are many aspects to the Power of One, but we believe Workday’s single architecture truly sets us apart. Watch as Workday Chief Technology Officer Joe Korngiebel explains what makes our technology so different.
As one example, we define our application logic as metadata. As Korngiebel explains, “We describe what we want our applications to do without hard coding to a specific technology stack.” This way, we can decouple our applications from the underlying technology services that make them run. This allows our customers to take advantage of the latest innovations, and is very different from the traditional enterprise software world, which typically depends on full software updates to deliver innovation.
