Workday, the leader in SaaS-based enterprise solutions for global human resources, payroll, and financial management supports applications in a virtualized model powered by OpenStack and OpenContrail. In this session, we will share our path to production and what are the best practices that our development and operations teams have created to continue this successful path. We will share some of the details of our architecture model and how we never touch APIs directly but always by code and repos. Please, join us whether you are just starting your path to production or are already an experienced user of any of these platforms.
