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 todayG«÷s 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 WorkdayG«÷s annual customer conference, Workday Rising, to publicly announce plans to build the new application, Workday Student.
