Comments on the News
"Businesses like ours require far more than APIs to simplify and improve enterprise integration. Workday recognizes this and has taken a leadership position by providing customers with critical access to its core technology," said Paul Lones, senior vice president, Information Technology at Fairchild Semiconductor. "Workday's Integration Cloud Platform played a major role in our decision to replace our on-premise system with Workday software-as-a-service. Since Workday opened its platform, we have already successfully built 28 custom integrations to and from Workday, and have the capability to maintain these or create additional integrations as our ecosystem evolves."
"Today's enterprise applications rarely live in isolation. Although integration is fundamental to enterprise and business applications, it is also the greatest deployment challenge for IT," said Aneel Bhusri, Workday co-founder and CEO. "By enabling our customers and partners to self build, deploy, run, and manage integrations in the Workday Cloud, we believe we solve more of the integration problem than any other SaaS application vendor. A key investment area, Workday will continue to reduce the cost and complexity traditionally associated with application integration for our customers."
Workday is the leader in SaaS-based enterprise solutions for global human resources, payroll, and financial management, providing new levels of business agility for a fraction of the cost of buying, deploying, and maintaining legacy on-premise systems. More than 190 companies, spanning mid-sized organizations to global Fortune 500 businesses with employees in more than 75 countries, have selected Workday.
