Aneel Bhusri as quoted in SaaS Start-Up Workday Acquires Cape Clear

Workday acquired Cape Clear Software, one of the last remaining independent providers of an enterprise service bus, the middleware technology for service-oriented architecture. The SaaS startup, also known as the PeopleSoft alumni association, has positioned itself as an on-demand alternative to ERP.

Mary Hayes Weier writes “It’s a critical technology and talent acquisition for Workday, since IT managers often cite concerns about integrating their legacy apps with on-demand apps as the biggest barrier to SaaS adoption.”
