Workday Strengths

Workday is expanding rapidly, in many cases faster than many of its competitors, because of its singular focus on key markets – HCM and more recently financial management and student information systems– with a growing list of Cloud applications that sport a common data model as well as a consistent user interface.

Coupled with its laser focus is Workday’s 100% dedication to customer satisfaction The company recently announced a customer satisfaction rating of 98% at Workday Rising conference.

Support for its software has become widespread.

As many as 150 of Fortune 500 companies like Bank of America and Qualcomm are now Workday customers as its customer count has topped 1,800 from 1181 in 2016.

To keep up with its breakneck growth, the number of Workday employees has almost quintupled to over 7,400 from 1,550 in 2012.

After establishing a stronghold in Core HR, Workday moved into Financial Management, which has more than 370 customers since its release in 2014.

Next came Recruiting and Insight for analytics.

The former 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 more than 1,100 customers have purchased Workday Recruiting with with more than 550 live.

Workday Payroll has been extended to a number of new countries including the UK in 2015 and France in 2016.

The latest additions include Planning for enterprise performance management and Learning.

The former has secured more than 170 customers, while the latter has over 200 customers.

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.
