Businessweek reports that it's going to IPO this month, seeking about $500 million and that it's taking some big, big money sales from Oracle and SAP. Dave Duffield, the founder of PeopleSoft, founded Workday to make life tough on Larry Ellison and seems to be succeeding, according to the story. Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos and Reid Hoffman have invested $250 million in this Ellison attack."
