Dreamforce to Showcase How Businesses Can Tap Into the Power of Social, Mobile and Open Technologies to Become Social Enterprises

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference Booth #321 -- Cloud computing companies salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) and Workday, Inc. today announced they will join forces to deliver workforce data to the social enterprise. Workday will deliver two new offerings that will extend data from Workday through salesforce.com's social, mobile and open technologies. The first will enable Workday data to be integrated into Salesforce Chatter -- salesforce.com's secure, private social network for businesses -- to securely share, collaborate and act upon workforce data in real-time. The other will allow customers to create custom applications with Workday data feeds on Force.com, salesforce.com's enterprise platform for building and running employee facing social apps.

Comments on the News:

  • "Salesforce.com and Workday are both committed to transforming companies through the power of the social technology," said Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO, salesforce.com. "It is exciting that customers can now bring the power of social collaboration to workforce data."
  • "Workday is excited to work with salesforce.com to deliver seamless interoperability between Chatter and Force.com with our suite of Human Capital Management and Financials applications. We believe that this partnership will deliver great value to our joint customers," said Aneel Bhusri, co-founder and CEO, Workday.

Through the partnership, Workday will deliver:

  • Salesforce Chatter and Workday Integration: Workday customers will be able to use Salesforce Chatter to securely share and take action on worker data that resides natively within Workday. This packaged integration pushes traditional Workday business processes, such as approval requests, into a real-time social stream. It also allows real-time enterprise-wide collaboration on topics that cross traditional departmental barriers, such as sales cycles, personnel, payroll, budgeting and spend on company initiatives.
  • Custom Force.com App Leveraging Workday Data: Workday customers, partners and developers will be able to securely pull workforce data residing within their Workday application into Force.com to build custom apps.

Pricing and Availability

  • The Chatter integration is scheduled to be generally available in late 2011. The Force.com customizable app will be available on the AppExchange, the leading marketplace for business apps on a date to be announced.
