COLLABORATE 14 PeopleSoft Recap

Marc Weintraub
Vice President, Product Strategy

just took place on Monday, April 17 – Friday, April 11 in Las Vegas, NV.
 It was another successful event driven
by the Oracle user groups of: Quest
International Users Group
, the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG), and Independent
Oracle Users Group (IOUG).  The event had
approximately 6,000 total attendees with nearly 1,250 sessions and panels
packed with first-hand experiences, case studies, and practical “how-to”
content.  PeopleSoft content was delivered
through the Quest International Users Group with over 170 PeopleSoft-centric sessions.  That included over 60 PeopleSoft customer led
sessions and over 45 Oracle led sessions.

Most PeopleSoft conference participants attended Paco
(Oracle Senior Vice President, PeopleSoft Development) PeopleSoft General Session: PeopleSoft
Update and Roadmap (Session ID: 109590). With an audience of over 400 people, Paco discussed how Oracle’s investments
in PeopleSoft applications have transformed PeopleSoft into a modern enterprise
software solution by providing:

  • A consumer internet user experience
  • Intuitive, process oriented business flows
  • Contextual, information delivery
  • Simplified productivity
  • The enablement of a mobile workforce
  • The ability to easily adopt and manage changes

The highlight of Paco’s session was the live demonstration
of the new PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (UI). The new PeopleSoft Fluid UI enables the
delivery of PeopleSoft applications in a modern, intuitive, and personalizable
way across multiple devices (tablets, smart phones, and desktops) regardless of
operating system. Using the latest state-of-the-art
technologies like HTML5 and CCS3 incorporated into the next PeopleTools release
(PeopleTools 8.54), the new PeopleSoft Fluid UI is delivered via a device’s
browser. It is responsive to a device’s form
factor – this means application screens can be optimized to different sized
devices and render the most appropriate information in a dynamic manner. In his PeopleSoft
General Session: Technology Update and Roadmap session (Session ID: 108630),
Jeff Robbins (Oracle Senior Director, PeopleTools Strategy) continued the
discussion on how PeopleSoft truly is a state-of-the-art solution and how PeopleTools
drives PeopleSoft innovation. Check out

of PeopleTools

Leaders from Oracle’s PeopleSoft product management and
development team were on hand and conveyed the value of PeopleSoft 9.2 as well
as the future investment strategy for PeopleSoft. A large
number of PeopleSoft conference attendees indicated they were live or moving to
PeopleSoft 9.2, illustrating the continued and growing excitement for
the PeopleSoft 9.2 release. One force driving that
excitement is the PeopleSoft
Update Manager
(PUM). The PeopleSoft
Update Manager revolutionizes how Oracle delivers new PeopleSoft capabilities
and maintenance. With it, customers can
self-select the changes they want to apply on their schedule. This enables customers to get more value from
their PeopleSoft solutions at a lower cost via a new PeopleSoft delivery model. Michael Krajicek (Oracle Senior Director,
PeopleSoft Architecture Development) got into the details of PUM during the Optimizing Maintenance Strategies Using
PeopleSoft Update Manager session (Session ID: 108520).

This conference wasn’t just about PeopleSoft and what it can
do. A significant number of sessions
also shared how PeopleSoft customers can gain additional value from the rich
portfolio of Oracle applications. From
UPK and GRC Advanced Controls to Hyperion and Webcenter, Oracle product experts
discussed the integration of these solutions to PeopleSoft and customer
successes in these areas. All-in-all
there was fantastic content for PeopleSoft customers delivered by Oracle,
partners, and customers as well. Conference attendees can access uploaded session content here
(conference login required). Mark your
calendars for COLLABORATE 15 being held
Sunday, April 12 – Thursday, April 116 in Las Vegas, NV.
