Big Win for SaaS: Workday sells 200k seats to single company

On-demand software startup Workday has landed the largest known SaaS deal to provide an electronics company with a human-capital management software service for 200,000 employees.

It's the strongest proof yet that large companies have started to embrace the software-as-a-service delivery model.

The company is Flextronics, a $28 billion electronics manufacturer. CIO David Smoley says "HR should be simple. When you look at the usability of Workday it's a natural compared with traditional vendors that make it incredibly complex to implement and make changes."

What Workday does for HR software, Sonian does for hosted archiving: Simple, Secure, Affordable. One click and you're done.
