With Workday on AWS, Workday says customers can meet complex data sovereignty requirements while maintaining the security, scalability, and performance they expect from Workday.
“Now, more than ever, cloud technology is crucial to digital acceleration and provides the agility organisations need to succeed in this changing world,” notes Workday Australia and New Zealand managing director and vice president Stephen Jack.
He adds: “Adding Workday Financial Management and Workday HCM on AWS to the region ensures businesses in Australia—including those that are operating in a regulated environment—now have the option to modernise and replace aging technology and disparate systems with Workday.”
Amazon Web Services head of channels and alliances Davinia Simon says delivering Workday’s core applications on AWS is a key milestone in both of the companies’ partnership.
“It not only underscores Workday’s rapid pace of innovation and growth, but also enables more global organisations to take advantage of the full scale, reliability, and performance of AWS,” she says.
Workday was also appointed to the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) Cloud Marketplace, a digital sourcing arrangement of cloud computing offerings.
The same Workday applications mentioned above are now available via the Cloud Marketplace to all Australian federal, state, and territory government agencies seeking to replace ageing technology and disparate systems.
Many public sector organisations around the world have chosen Workday, the company says, including Public Trust in New Zealand, the Crown Commercial Service, United Kingdom’s biggest public procurement organisation, United Kingdom’s Cabinet Office, and the City of Los Angeles.
The Cloud Marketplace can be accessed via the DTA’s BuyICT platform.
Jack says Workday collaborates with some of the world’s most innovative businesses and public sector organisations.
“With our appointment to the DTA’s Cloud Marketplace we can now offer the Australian government innovative cloud applications for finance, human resources, and planning so they can drive IT modernisation and thrive in this changing world,” Jack concludes.
