Another European opinion on Workday

I recently had the pleasure of attending 2 more Workday online classes.  They began at 5 PM UK time.  To start with, I had to listen to the instructor kick off the call by asking who we were supporting in the Superbowl.  I didn't give a flying fig about the conversation (as Philly was out).  Instead I was doubly irritated that I could only choose an online course that was either East coast or West coast US timezone and here we are two years after I first started ranting on the topic and Workday STILL doesn't have a proper European presence.  It's fine you have an office in Dublin, but the courses are offered in the US timezone.  In addition, the Superbowl thing was very US centric...I don't even know what to say here.  Often in a foreign county, 'you don't know what you don't know' and I think it applies here.

Either WD wants to be a global player or not...not sure which it is in the moment though.

Another European blogger has a few thoughts about Workday.  I have some further thoughts brewing on this topic, but would recommend that you give this post a look in the meantime.
