CEO Dave Duffield endorsed SaaS at the SaaScon meeting today .
Dave’s thinking is "We thought, well, it works, why not make it work in an ERP application?"
The company's new release, in June, will add financials, and there's an aggressive roadmap to fill out ERP capabilities to serve the needs of typical service companies. Once that happens, and the company has proved itself with smaller companies, then Workday aims to target larger enterprises, aiming squarely at SAP and Oracle's heartlands.
"Within eighteen months we'll be easily on feature parity with SAP in our target industries," said Duffield.
