What is Workday community shared tenant?

A Workday tenant is an instance of the Workday software, including data that exists independently of other tenants. There are many types of deployment and production tenants, each intended for a specific use

There are 4 types of Workday Tenant,
1. GMS (Global Modern Services) Tenant (demo data)
2. Prototype Tenant
3. Full Dataload Tenant
4. Testing Tenant

A GMS services tenant with fictitious test data for Workday implementation partners to create demos, test upgrades, and try configurations. The GMS tenant gives you an opportunity to see configured features and custom reports using fictitious organizations and workers. The term deployment tenant refers to the Implementation tenants used to implement the Workday solution, such as for loading employees, configuring features, testing, and building integration. The term deployment tenant does not refer to a customer’s Production, Sandbox, or Sandbox Preview tenants.

Tenant is a unique environment that holds different data set maintained by Workday. To my knowledge, the term Tenant was coined based on the Owner – Tenant, Example if you are renting a property from a landlord, then you are called as Tenant and the person who rent it out is the Owner. Here, Workday is allowing its customers to use the product in the cloud space, in-turn Workday charges its customer in the agreed frequency.
