A bit about Workday
Workday was co-founded by Dave Duffield after his previous company, PeopleSoft, was acquired by Oracle in 2005. With fellow co-founder Aneel Bhusri, they set about creating on demand, cloud based business applications for Finance management; human capital management and student management.
In 2008, Workday was launched and changed the software business model as customers subscribe to a managed service rather than buying or renting software that they install and manage themselves – now known widely as Software as a Service (SaaS). By this, all customers are using exactly the same codeline, which is therefore constantly being tested not only during new deployments, but also by millions of transactions being undertaken by thousands of customers on a daily basis.
Workday has continued to evolve based on legisaltive change; customer request; industry trends; specialist vendor acquisition.
IT Bites switched to becoming Workday implementers in 2013, becoming certified initially through partner relationships, and then continuing as an independent, boutique specialist. We continue in the Workday ecosystem today.
As a mark of respect to our customers, we do not provide details of any current projects we are working on. Suffice to say, IT Bites continues to work on Workday deployments. Indeed, since January 2022 we have been engaged on a very large global project that involves a complex HR transformation with the inclusion of Workday. It is anticipated that this project will last 2 or 3 years, with IT Bites fully involved.
