SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Google Cloud today announced an expanded partnership with Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ: WDAY), a leading provider of solutions that help organizations manage their people and money, that will bring new generative AI capabilities to enhance how customers build and manage apps on Workday.

Accelerating Intelligent App Development in Workday Extend with Gemini
