When human resource management system (HRMS) PeopleSoft was acquired by Oracle in 2004, David Duffield and Aneel Bhusri decided it was time for them to break the chains of physical servers and put their energies into a cloud-based future. The fruit of their collaboration is Workday, a powerhouse in subscription-based enterprise software. As of 2020, their platform has been adopted by industry giants such as HubSpot, Netflix, and Quicken Loans, and high customer satisfaction is driving their expansion even further.

Headquartered in the San Francisco suburb of Pleasanton, California, Workday’s platform unifies Human Capital and Financial Management systems into a modern interface, granting businesses greater control over their most valuable assets. Human resources and payroll are integrally intertwined, and Workday ensures that those systems work together to any company’s benefit. As enterprise resource planning (ERP) continues to be a driving factor in growth, the platform promotes efficiency and increases agility, allowing companies to constantly stay ahead of the pack.

Since its founding, Workday has become one of the largest publicly-traded SaaS companies in the world and is currently growing toward an ARR of $1 billion per quarter. Co-founder and CEO Bhusri brings two decades of experience at the forefront of enterprise software and is committed to easing the pains of moving infrastructures from legacy systems into the ever-expanding cloud. With Bhusri and Duffield still leading the way forward, Workday is soon to become the dominant player in HR software.
