Pang said with each passing year, Workday has made its platform more configurable, allowing the creation of custom fields, but it has taken a cautious position when it came to throwing the doors wide open to custom development."As competitors have become more sophisticated in their usage of Paa S, Workday has had to follow suit," he said.In his blog post, Bhusri addressed that very point, writing, "Workday intends to enable customers and our broader ecosystem to use our platform services to build custom extensions and applications." According to Dan Beck, Workday's senior vice president for technology strategy, the Workday Paa S will provide developers with the ability to work outside the confines of the Workday ecosystem, making it easier to build multi-Saa S integrations.That capability could lead to developers recommending Workday, despite its high cost, to IT decision-makers who might have been reluctant to select an HCM platform perceived as not fully open. "We've been busy building out our applications," Beck said.
