Workday Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Human Capital Management Suites for Midmarket and Large Enterprises

Positioned as a Leader for Second Year in a Row, Achieved Highest Overall Position for Ability to Execute

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 23, 2017) - Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Human Capital Management Suites for Midmarket and Large Enterprises"1. Workday was acknowledged as a leader for the second year in a row and achieved the highest overall position for its ability to execute.

"We are proud that Gartner has recognized Workday as a cloud HCM leader for the second consecutive year," said Cristina Goldt, vice president, HCM products, Workday. "With more than 70 percent of our customers in production, a customer satisfaction rating over 95 percent, and our ongoing delivery of key innovations, we continue to see our growing customer community realizing business value and driving future growth with Workday."

From day one, Workday was built with one version of software, one customer community, one codeline, and a single security model and user experience. The power of one enables all Workday customers to benefit from continuous innovation delivered in the cloud -- a differentiator that ensures Workday Human Capital Management customers have the latest functionality to keep pace in a dynamic environment and the workforce insights needed for quick, data-driven actions and business decisions.

Customer-driven innovation is at the core of Workday's product strategy -- with a constant commitment to listening to and understanding customer needs in order to build products that will continually transform the way they work. This is what inspired two new offerings within the last year -- Workday Learning, an application that offers a personalized, social, and interactive learning experience for organizations to encourage career development at every stage of the employee lifecycle, and Workday Planning, the first planning, budgeting, and forecasting application that unifies financial and workforce planning with analytics and transactions in one system.
