Built From The Cloud Up

Workday has an interesting story and as they say they were “built from the cloud up”. You can read the story for yourself but as the story goes (from the workday website) In 2005, software visionaries Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri met for brunch at a Truckee diner, a few miles north of Lake Tahoe. They decided to form a startup—one that would sell cloud-based HR and finance software. The two longtime friends had plenty of experience. Dave founded PeopleSoft in 1987 and served as the company’s CEO and board chairman.

Aneel held a number of leadership positions at PeopleSoft, including senior vice president of product strategy. On that day in 2005, they resolved to build a company that would revolutionize the enterprise software market. The result is Workday.
