On Monday, PeopleSoft 9.2 was officially launched at the annual Alliance Conference in Indianapolis. Over 4,000 customers and partners from the Higher Education and Public Sector industries were on hand for the keynote announcement delivered by Paco Aubrejuan and Mark Armstrong. Over 500 sessions were held from Sunday through Thursday by Oracle and the customer community. Over 400 of these were customer and partner led. A separate Executive Forum track included 125 customers. Held annually, this is probably the most collaborative event in the enterprise space as customers openly share their case studies and approaches to solving business problems. Over four days of sessions the PeopleSoft team provided deep dives and demonstrations of the new features in 9.2. Prior to the conference, two days of Product Advisory Group meetings were held with members of the PeopleSoft Strategy team to discuss items under consideration for future releases. At a session on PeopleSoft 9.2 HCM, the entire room raised their hands expressing an intent to upgrade. Indianapolis was an appropriate venue to get the 9.2 engine started!
