DayNine Continues European Expansion With German Office

Appoints Former Siemens AG and Unify Executive as New Country Manager of DACH to Support Ongoing Customer Momentum

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and KARLSRUHE, GERMANY--(Marketwired - December 01, 2015) - DayNine Consulting, Inc., a global Workday (NYSE: WDAY) services partner, announced today that it has opened an office in Germany to expand its European presence and better serve its growing global customer base for Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources. Based in Karlsruhe, the office is part of a new legal entity established by the company -- DayNine Consulting (Deutschland) GmbH.

The company also announced that Rainer Maier, a former Siemens AG and Unify executive who led a variety of global IT projects for the organizations, has joined as country manager to oversee DayNine's growth in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (DACH). Immediately prior to joining DayNine, Maier was the vice president of service delivery at treorbis, a Hamburg-based international consulting firm, where he focused on establishing the company's human capital management BPO (business process outsourcing) offering and driving its overall cloud strategy.

"We've seen significant traction throughout the DACH region and our new German office will be extremely strategic for us as we expand our presence across Europe," said Jonathan Trew, vice president and general manager, EMEA and APJ, DayNine. "Mr. Maier's appointment ensures that DayNine's expansion will be supported by leaders with a wealth of experience in building global services for enterprises."

"This is an exciting time for Workday and DayNine, especially as German, Austrian and Swiss enterprises are increasingly faced with unique challenges of doing business globally," said Maier. "Successful finance and HR transformations are often complicated by regional market requirements and regulations. DayNine offers the best of both worlds -- a partner that is locally experienced and globally present."

Demand for Workday applications continues to rise

More than 120 organizations with a presence across more than 115 countries have selected DayNine to help deploy Workday. DayNine's proven global expertise is grounded in the company's ability to be fully immersed within each client's business, successfully navigating the linguistic, cultural, and regulatory nuances that make each client and its Workday deployment unique.

  • Ferring Pharmaceuticals, a research-driven, specialty biopharmaceutical group active in global markets
  • Global, a British media company
  • Siemens CVC, a Siemens portfolio company for IT solutions and services

"With about 1,200 employees across 11 different countries, Siemens CVC had a complex and diverse HR system that required a global standard," said Dominik Loeffler, head of global HR, Siemens CVC.
