Beacon of Light

I recently enrolled in and attended all the classes on Workday HCM, Payroll, and Finance Live Class Training conducted by Mary and found it to be extremely beneficial and important for anyone who wants to pursue a solid career in Workday. Mary is an authority in all areas of Workday and is a Go-To-Person for everything Workday or for that matter other ERP Products as well like PeopleSoft because of her extremely rich and extensive and in-depth experience in the ERP Arena. Like Mary always mentions that ERP is like an Ocean, whether it be Workday, PeopleSoft, SAP, etc. or any other ERP Product and there is always something new to learn, I consider Mary to be the beacon of light or lighthouse showing us the light and helping/coaching/guiding/directing our career boats to the right destination while we are sailing in the big ERP Ocean and keeping us up to date with the latest and greatest in Workday. I have also enrolled in the Workday Integration, BIRT and PRISM Reports Live Class Training which will be conducted by Mary sometime soon and I will be really looking forward to attending it as I already know that I will be gaining a wealth of knowledge by attending the classes and which will help me to a great extent to further my aspiration for a fulfilling and solid career in Workday. - Shupratim
