ABSTRACT
The article deals with the decision of David Duffield, billionaire founder of PeopleSoft, to come out of a second retirement to build a new company called Workday. The new company sells software that big companies can access over the Web to run most of their important back-office functions such as payroll, personnel, asset-tracking and financial processes. Web software is billed as a flexible alternative to maintaining a suite of huge applications from SAP and Oracle inside a corporate data center.
