â Business Intelligence. Workday provides real-time, actionable business insight throughout the application. Workday Actionable Analytics are unlike existing bolt-on reporting and business intelligence systems which are difficult to implement, costly to own, resource intensive to maintain and complicated to use.
â Advanced Analytics. Workday is bringing advanced analytics to customers to allow them to derive more value from their data. Internally, Workday employs technologies like Hadoop to analyze terabytes of application data in order to better understand usage and performance and improve the Workday system.
â Mobile. As the workforce around the world becomes more mobile, enterprises are enabling their workers to stay informed and connected while on the go. Workday is re-imagining user experiences to take advantage of new smart phone and tablet interactions and form factors.

â Integration. Workday is committed to easing the burden of integration with the Workday Integration Cloud, a comprehensive solution that enables customers and partners to build and deploy integrations to the Workday Cloud without the need for any on-premise middleware.
â SaaS Infrastructure. Software as a Service is a software delivery model that allows companies to reap the benefits of enterprise class software without the burden of supporting traditional ERP solutions. With Workday, customers appreciate several key advantages from the SaaS delivery model: multi-tenancy, vendor managed updates, and business continuity.
â In-Memory Object Model. Our applications use objects to represent real-world entities such as employees, benefits, invoices, charts of accounts, and organizations. Using objects to model attributes and relationships is more robust and adaptable to change. Our solution combines business logic and data in an in-memory object model, compared to legacy systems that separate business logic from data mapped to a rigid and complex relational database structure.
â Security. Workday is a trusted partner for large enterprises wanting to take advantage of the many benefits of SaaS. From the physical security of our data center operations to network and application level-security to ensuring the safeguard of sensitive data, Workday's infrastructure, policies and procedures are world class.
â Global. Workday's unique global architecture helps increase visibility into global organizations, align work to strategic objectives, and optimize talent deployment around the world. Workday also provides a basis of global best practices and supports local organizational requirements.
