Dashing through the data, converting to the FDM, oh what fun it is to build, a Workday tenant. OHHHHH FST, FST, FST all the way!  We have a bit of a holiday theme in today's WFST broadcast, because the FST team is building the first tenant of Workday Financials for UVA, and it's going to be a long-awaited gift.  Join Patty and Brandi for updates on Configuration & Prototype and more.
