Workday looks to the cloud

The hardest and costly part of working with software-as-a-service (SaaS) is often the integration required to plug into on-premise applications and third-party services, says Information Week.

Workday, the SaaS-based ERP system provider, says that it's tackling the problem with a new cloud-based integration platform.

The Workday 'Integration Cloud Platform' combines the vendor's existing Enterprise Interface Builder (EIB) with a new Workday Studio development environment.

EIB is where programmers and non-programmers can create interfaces to get data into and out of Workday and its HR, human capital management, talent management, payroll, spend, financial management and administrative applications.

According to ZDNet, Workday is using its SaaS-based enterprise solutions for human resources, payroll, and financial management as a beachhead for popularising integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS).

The goal is to allow for complex, custom integrations to be built using Workday tools and then be deployed and managed in the Workday Cloud.

Collaborative Solutions announced its support of the Workday Integration Cloud Platform with the introduction of its Integration Factory, writes RedOrbit.

The Integration Factory, a dedicated service to delivering Workday cloud-based integrations, has already demonstrated success with customers including Grubb & Ellis and Intermec.

The Workday Integration Cloud Platform is iPaaS on which Workday customers and partners can build complex, custom integrations to and from Workday and deploy and manage them in the Workday Cloud.
