Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.

IT leaders are in a tough spot. Business leaders need help improving processes, but IT needs to focus resources on its own mission-critical innovation projects. Over the past 18 months IT backlogs have risen by 29%, resulting in growing tensions between IT and the business. Across industries, IT leaders are increasingly turning to no-code application development to free themselves from the burden of the backlog.
In this 30-minute webinar, Adam Hoover, Solutions Engineer at Quick Base, Inc. will discuss how a no-code application development platform can enable you to drastically reduce your backlog and keep your team focused on the projects that have the greatest impact. He’ll cover how to identify partnership opportunities between the business and IT – and share three effective models for working together while maintaining high quality across the IT ecosystem.
Longi Engineering, a leading Microsoft SharePoint partner, was engaged to assist a leading Performing Arts Center in implementing an organizational SharePoint intranet to allow them to increase employee collaboration, automate previously manual processes and collaborate more effectively. The organization faced numerous challenges such as document management, legal contract workflow, records retention and labor intensive/error prone manual processes.
Longi Engineering was engaged to assist a Community Action non-profit in implementing SharePoint to fulfill several organizational requirements they had as well as resolve multiple challenges they faced. Manual paper processes were hindering the organization from being able to efficiently focus on their goal of providing services and strengthening the community to improve the quality of life for residents in their County.
Longi Engineering was engaged to assist a Private Equity Firm in implementing a SharePoint deal management system as an additional component to their existing on premise SharePoint server solution. The organization faced multiple challenges in that they did not possess an efficient technology solution that allowed them to manage their deals and associated history. One of the organization’s goals was to create a centralized, easily accessible dashboard interface from which they could rapidly determine the status of a deal as well as manage their deals. Their deal lifecycle had multiple stages depending on whether a deal was New, in a diligence phase, on Hold or Dead.
SharePoint is a technology that most organizations have access to these days, yet it is one that is open not utilized fully. This is in part due to organizations not being fully aware of the breadth of SharePoint’s capabilities. Most SharePoint power users/administrators are aware they can leverage SharePoint as a document repository and to share data seamlessly with a group of colleagues, however, they often are not aware of how to leverage some of SharePoint’s key foundational components effectively. As someone who implements SharePoint, one of the biggest complaints we hear from organizations is users aren’t using it, adoption is low. Without user adoption no technology implementation project can be successful. It is difficult to pinpoint one reason that causes adoption to be low, however, taking steps to effectively build your SharePoint site with a solid foundation along with an end goal of high user adoption is a great way to start.

How can enterprises overcome the issues that come with traditional data warehousing? Despite the business value that data warehouses can deliver, too often they fall short of expectations. They take too long to deliver, cost too much to build and maintain, and cannot keep pace with changing business requirements.
If this all rings a bell, check out Attunity’s knowledge brief on data warehouse automation with Attunity Compose. The solution automates the design, build, and deployment of data warehouses, data marts and data hubs, enabling more agile and responsive operation. The automation reduces time-consuming manual coding, and error-prone repetitive tasks. Read the knowledge brief to learn more about your options.
Container platforms such as Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift combine with agile development methodologies to speed up application development and deployment. By allowing developers to break applications up into smaller components (also known as microservices), containers can help reduce dependencies, allow component-level scaling, and encourage rapid release lifecycles.
By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis.
"The practices of continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment offer the promise of safer, faster, and more efficient software development. Critical to realizing this promise is the integration of application delivery and security services into the development and deployment workflows.
F5 offers the platform, the integration, and the training to insert industry-leading application protection and optimization services into workflows so that software can be built, tested, and deployed with the services it needs to be secure, fast, and available.
