Comments on the News
"The iPad is a real game changer. Since Workday is delivered entirely in the cloud, workers don't need to access the app from a browser -- we can bring the solution to the user, wherever they are and on whatever device they use," said Aneel Bhusri, Workday co-founder and CEO. "As iPads continue to be adopted by c-level executives, we expect they will become the primary consumption device for Workday solutions.
