Maybe you have seen the show “Shark Tank” where entrepreneurs present their ideas and the best ideas are recognized and rewarded. PeopleSoft meets Shark Tank at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco event. Do you have a business challenge that you would like PeopleSoft to solve? Do you know what the solution is, but Oracle just hasn’t developed it yet? Now is your chance to tell the PeopleSoft team your idea and attempt to make it a reality.
The Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco 2015 session “PeopleSoft Meets Shark Tank-Pitch What You Want to See in PeopleSoft” (CON8327) will consist of conference attendees presenting their ideas on how to use PeopleSoft to solve a specific business challenge. Selected presenters will have only five (5) minutes to present the challenge they are addressing and the PeopleSoft solution they are proposing. Selected presenters can use these five (5) minutes as they see fit. They can present using slides, demonstrate a prototype/mock up, play a video, or use sock puppets – whatever best communicates their solution.
PeopleSoft team members will evaluate proposed solutions and select a winner. Solutions will be judged on the following criteria:
- The scope and importance of the business challenge to be addressed
- How well is the business challenge solved
- The use of the latest PeopleSoft capabilities (for example, PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface, Pivot Grids, Activity Guides, WorkCenters, and so on) in solving the business challenge
- Presentation of proposed solution
- Adherence to the five (5) minute maximum presentation time
- Overall creativity
Winning solutions will be acknowledged on the PeopleSoft blog for their
innovation, creativity, and vision as well as be evaluated for productization and
potential incorporation into the PeopleSoft solution. Win or lose, every selected participant will walk away with a token of appreciation from the PeopleSoft team.
Space is limited. No more than eight (8) organizations will be selected to present. All presenters must be pre-screened and qualifying ideas will be invited to present at the Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco 2015 session. To qualify you must submit a one (1) page or less abstract to me, Marc Weintraub (email@example.com) no later than Friday, October 2nd 2015. Your abstract should include:
- Your name, organization, and contact information
- The business problem you are addressing
- A summary of your proposed solution
Qualifying presenters will be notified during the week ending Friday, October 9, 2015. Both customers as well as partners are encouraged to participate.
Even if you are not participating by submitting a proposed solution you are invited to attend the session as an audience member. This should be a fun and exciting Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco 2015 session, I look forward to seeing you all there and hearing your proposals.
