re: Workday Big Data Drive Starts Small
Turns out a college local to me in South Florida is one of several working with Workday to design this student tracking system to their specs.Just received this by email:
Broward College, which serves 67,000 students throughout the Fort Lauderdale area, announced today that is has partnered with Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance, to help design the first student application built in the last 20 years for higher education - and the first in the cloud.
Challenged with antiquated systems that were not built
for the needs of todayGÇÖs students or institutions, Broward has joined other select higher education institutions to help Workday design a mobile-first cloud application built for modern day that will transform the way colleges are able to serve students.
J. David Armstrong, Jr., president, Broward College, joined Dave Duffield, co-founder and co-CEO, Workday, on stage today at WorkdayGÇÖs annual customer conference, Workday Rising, to publicly announce plans to build the new application, Workday Student.
