PeopleSoft Founder Plans New Company -

"PeopleSoft Inc. founder David A. Duffield plans Monday to announce a new company called Workday Inc., he said Friday in a recorded phone message sent to reporters.
In the call, Mr. Duffield described the business as 'a new generation of on-demand ERP,' or enterprise-resource planning, a category of software that PeopleSoft offered. By opting for an on-demand service, Workday is following the lead of such companies as Inc. of San Francisco and NetSuite Inc., of San Mateo, Calif., which helped popularize the notion of managing business tasks through a Web site rather than using programs installed on their own computers."
