It also provides open, standards-based Web-services application programming interfaces and pre-built packaged integrations and connectors. Applications Workday Financial Management Workday Financial Management is an unified application built on a single, global core with a range of financial capabilities, relevant analytics and metrics, and fully auditable process management built to help manage financial processes for global organizations.

It also supports built-in financial, operational, and management reporting and analysis in real time without the use of bolt-on business intelligence systems. Workday HCM Designed for the major organizations in the world, Workday HCM allows an organization to staff, pay, organize, and develop its global workforce. This unified application includes global human resources management (workforce lifecycle management, organization management, compensation, absence, and employee benefits administration) and global talent management (goal management, performance management, succession planning, and career and development planning).

Sales and Marketing The company sells the Workday Service through its direct sales organization, that is comprised of field sales and field sales support personnel.
