SCORES Analysis

Workday Strengths

Workday has not skipped a day of work when selling Cloud-based ERP applications.


In 2015, it picked up 350 customers to reach more than 1300. By comparison, it signed 250 new customers in 2014. Much of its increased momentum could be attributable to a growing portfolio of Cloud applications, coupled with across-the-board enhancements for mobility support, intuitive user interface as well as new offerings like Recruiting and Insight Applications. These two capabilities topped Workday's fast-evolving product agenda over the past year.


Workday accelerated momentum for Workday Financial Management with 45 customers joining in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, bringing the total customer count for this application to more than 200. Workday has over 100 financial management customers in production and live customers in 35 countries.


Recruiting was internally built, while the underlying technology for Insight Applications was derived from its 2014 acquisition of Identified, which leveraged Big Data algorithms to facilitate predictive analytics and machine learning throughout Workday's applications.


In less than two years more than 545 customers have purchased Workday Recruiting. Workday Payroll has been extended to a number of new countries including the UK in 2015 and France in 2016. In addition to its stronghold in HCM, Workday has begun to make inroads into other ERP pillars after signing more than 100 for its Financial Management application.


Another key attribute is Workday's ability to harness the resources of its partners to take customers live. Deloitte, for example, took 50 Workday customers with a million employees live in 2014. Altogether these factors have made Workday not just a major force in Cloud HCM, but also a thriving Cloud platform capable of transforming the entire enterprise applications market.


In September 2015, Workday announced Workday Learning, a new application intended to offer a more personalized, meaningful learning experience for organizations to evolve and encourage career development at every stage of the employee lifecycle. Workday Learning will be built into the fabric of Workday's unified suite of applications including Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workday Financial Management, providing customers with a single system to cultivate their workforce, close talent gaps, and drive business growth.
