Podcast: Workday Acquires Peakon for $700M

Insights for IT Negotiations


Workday is looking to fill out their product portfolio through acquisitions as opposed to going out and buying market share which is a strategy Oracle once used back in the early 2000s. Peakon will allow Workday to gather data on employee engagement, diversity & inclusion, health & wellbeing, as well as company culture. Jeff Lazarto, UpperEdge’s Practice Leader for Workday, discusses more about this $700M acquisition and how it ties into Workday’s VIBE Central dashboard which launched in 2020.
