IBM and Workday form strategic industry match up

16 Aug 2016

IBM and Workday, an enterprise cloud applications provider, have formed a strategic multi-year match up. 

In a move that adds further depth to their already well established partnership, Workday has adopted the IBM Cloud. 

According to the two companies, IBM Cloud will become the foundation for Workday’s development and testing environment. This move is aimed to provide Workday with greater efficiency, flexibility and global scale.

IBM Cloud will be the primary platform for Workday’s development and testing and Workday says it will continue accelerating the pace of innovation for its applications and services.

Aneel Bhusri, co-founder and CEO of Workday, says the two companies are both delivering transformative applications and services in the cloud.

"Workday will use IBM Cloud to continue accelerating Workday's internal development and testing efforts to support our ongoing global expansion."

According to IBM, its global cloud data center presence includes nearly 50 highly scalable and security-rich IBM Cloud data centers in 17 countries, and on six continents.

The company delivers a range of enterprise cloud services to provide clients with more choice and flexibility in their digital transformation.

For Workday, the use of IBM Cloud will expand over time, beyond basic development and testing.

Robert LeBlanc, senior vice president for IBM Cloud, adds that leading enterprises like Workday, continue to turn to IBM Cloud for its global reach, flexibility and resiliency.

"Through a preferred cloud partnership with IBM, Workday can accelerate its innovation efforts to better serve clients around the world."
