SEOUL, June 21, 2023 – Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced an expansion of its strategic partnership with Samsung SDS, the leading system integrator and cloud-based HR technology and service provider in South Korea.
