Private software-as-a-service company Adaptive Insights was ready to be public, travel around the country to promote its upcoming introductory public offer to its stakeholders.
Then Cloud Giant Workday came together, and $ 1.5 billion later, Adaptive Insights became a working subsidiary.
Adaptive Insight CEO Tom Bogan, who has called Workday Co-founder and CEO Aneel Bhusri a friend for over a decade, told CNBC on Tuesday that the workday's rapid takeover came down to two things: compatibility and trust.
"I think the key was the adaptation of cultures of the two companies," Bogan Cramer told in a joint interview with Bhusri. "Very customer-centered, very employee-centric, and with the cooperation Aneel and I had, there was much confidence that was needed to make a deal in a short period of time."
Adaptive Insights, focusing on cloud-based planning, collaboration and analysis, will add about $ 5 billion to working day market opportunities, not to mention its 4,000 customers and offers, Bhusri said to Cramer.
