Workday Turbocharges Its Partner and Developer Ecosystem with New Workday AI Capabilities

Company Showcases New AI Services for Workday Extend and Launches Workday AI Marketplace at Annual Developer Conference

LAS VEGAS, June 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leading provider of solutions to help organizations manage their people and money, today announced new AI innovations to make it easier than ever for developers and partners to build intelligent solutions on the Workday platform – and for customers to discover and benefit from those solutions. This includes AI updates to the company's developer platform, Workday Extend, and the general availability of Workday AI Marketplace, giving customers access to the best AI solutions from Workday and its partners in one centralized place.

These innovations are being showcased at Workday DevCon 2024, the company's fourth annual developer conference with more than 1,200 attendees. The Workday developer ecosystem and Workday DevCon have both grown by more than 50% since last year. 

"We are leading the enterprise AI revolution, and we're doing that not only by innovating at Workday – but by enabling AI innovation for our customers and partners as well," said Matt Grippo, senior vice president, core software, Workday. "With these new offerings, we are unlocking more possibilities for organizations to drive business efficiency and realize greater value from the Workday platform and ecosystem."

Propelling Intelligent App Development with Workday AI Gateway
Workday unveiled several new AI services via Workday AI Gateway, which gives developers access to the power of Workday AI to build intelligent apps with Workday Extend. Along with enhancements to existing skills analysis and document intelligence services, planned new AI services include:

  • Intelligent Answers. Leverages generative AI to enable users to get answers on existing documents or multiple files (e.g. an employee handbook, expense policy, travel rules, PTO, sabbatical policies) by querying them using natural language.

  • HCM Recommender. Applies machine learning to worker profile data and job requisition data to recommend similar workers based on user-defined attributes, helping managers create new connections and opportunities for their team's career growth and development.

  • Data Query. Leverages generative AI to simplify the data query process in Workday by enabling a user to create a data query in natural language.

Workday AI Marketplace: Unifying Trusted AI Innovation from Workday and Partners
Workday also announced the general availability of Workday AI Marketplace, giving Workday customers access to the best AI solutions from Workday and its partners, together in one place.

There are currently more than 15 AI partner solutions available in Workday AI Marketplace, making it easier than ever for Workday customers to leverage the power of AI to streamline business processes and enhance decision-making. Customers can choose from trusted AI solutions to help them address business challenges in areas such as accounting, contracts, fraud detection, recruiting, skills transformation, and more – saving valuable time and resources.

"While AI is making it possible to innovate and deliver customer value faster, it's increasingly difficult to assess the quality and trustworthiness of the myriad AI solutions in the market," said Damien Taylor, chief technology officer, Workday practice, Kainos. "Workday AI Marketplace makes it easy for our joint customers to find responsible AI solutions that extend the value of the Workday platform and gives partners a launch pad to co-innovate and showcase our best AI solutions that are responsible by design."

Putting Generative AI to Work at Workday DevCon
At Workday DevCon, developers will participate in a 24-hour hackathon to experiment with the new AI services as part of Workday AI Gateway and use Workday Extend Developer Copilot, the human-machine teaming capability in the Workday Extend Developer Site that leverages generative AI, to support the development lifecycle.

Workday Extend Developer Copilot is natively embedded into App Builder – Workday's no/low-code web-based developer toolset – to provide more rapid developer learning through natural language search and chat, and text-to-code generation capabilities designed to improve developer productivity and customer time-to-value by turning natural language into app code.

Workday AI Gateway is available with Workday Extend Professional. Intelligent Answers, HCM Recommender, and Data Query are planned to be made available to early adopter customers this month. Workday Extend Developer Copilot is planned to be available to early adopter customers beginning next month.
