Workday is a powerful, cloud-based human capital and financial management solution with a similarly powerful API that only customers and approved partners can access. Founded by two PeopleSoft executives in the wake of Oracle’s takeover in 2005, Workday is listed as the 2nd most popular HRIS (behind SAP SuccessFactors, but growing 30%+ per year vs 4% for SuccessFactors). Beyond streamlining applicant and employee management, Workday offers a full accounting and financial management suite comparable to other enterprise ERP solutions.
