SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/20/12 --  Dreamforce
Conference Booth #606 -- Workday, Inc., a leader in enterprise cloud
applications for human resources and finance, today announced its
plans to bring Salesforce Chatter, the leading enterprise social
network, into Workday's suite of HCM and Financial Management
applications, making Chatter available to all Workday users. With
Chatter inside, Workday users will benefit from the social networking
features of Chatter, such as profiles, feeds, and files, all within
their Workday system to realize deeper engagement and contextual
collaboration. The combination of Workday and Chatter helps
enterprises manage increasingly global, mobile, and social
workforces, while also meeting the needs of more complex business
environments in the social era. 
Comments on the News: 


 
--  "Salesforce.com and Workday are the leaders in enterprise cloud
    computing," said Marc Benioff, chairman and chief executive officer,
    salesforce.com. "Powering the social layer for Workday's products with
    Salesforce Chatter will enable Workday's users to connect in entirely
    new ways."
--  "Workday and salesforce.com share the belief that enterprise
    applications designed and delivered in the cloud, with mobile and
    social built in from the start, best serve today's business needs,"
    said Aneel Bhusri, chairman, co-founder, and co-CEO, Workday.
    "Bringing Chatter inside Workday's suite of HR and Finance apps will
    deliver better workforce engagement and more value to our joint
    customers."

  
Today, more than ever, enterprises realize that social must be a key
component of their business strategy in order to stay relevant with
their employees. Traditional on premise technologies lack this
inherent social layer, preventing employees from collaborati
ng and
connecting internally and with their customers and partners, to drive
greater business results. Accessing and sharing worker data,
financial information, and business processes in real-time is
critical for companies to better align their workforces toward the
right business outcomes. 
Embedding Chatter within Workday's suite of HCM and Financial
Management applications will provide customers with:  


 
--  A seamless, rich, and unified experience between Chatter and Workday;
--  A worker system of record that provisions worker data, such as new
    hires, transfers, promotions, and terminations, directly into Chatter;
--  Deeper contextual collaboration on key business initiatives and
    greater access to worker, financial, and relevant business process
    data;
--  A significantly enhanced integration between Salesforce Sales Cloud
    and Workday Financial Management, resulting in deeper collaboration
    and alignment between Sales and Finance organizations;
--  Availability of Chatter across Workday's enterprise user base; and
--  Access to Chatter across Workday's desktop and mobile applications,
    including smartphones and tablets.
