Dave Duffield and the Workday Team Hit the Road to Help Companies Nationwide Kick the On-Premise Habit

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - April 9, 2008) - On-premise business software has become too expensive, too complicated and too much of a hassle to deal with anymore. Workday is delivering Human Capital Management and Financial Management solutions on-demand, offering customers the capabilities they need, without the pain and challenges of implementing, maintaining and modifying legacy software.

Workday's CEO and chief customer advocate, Dave Duffield, along with Mark Nittler and Christine Ferguson, the company's vice presidents of applications strategy, are canvassing the U.S. in April and May 2008 with a series of seminars to help businesses learn about the benefits of Workday on-demand business applications. An all-star cast of Workday customers will join the team in each city to talk about their own experiences with Workday solutions.
