There is a perception that PeopleSoft's user experience is somewhat dated and cumbersome, and that it can't be improved. The reality is that PeopleSoft offers a modern and flexible user experience that can rival modern web applications and web sites. PeopleTools and PeopleSoft applications are introducing new features and capabilities that will provide such a modern user experience, but there are things customers can do right now that to create a compelling UI for their users.
At Oracle Open World 2011 this fall, we will be presenting a session on how you can craft a great UI in PeopleSoft using configuration, style sheet manipulation, and a little web design--without requiring customization or coding. This session will offer some basics on using the PeopleSoft Portal as well as some new PeopleSoft capabilities like Workcenters and Dashboards. These features can greatly improve the user experience for all sorts of users from self-service to navigation and transaction work for power users and managers. We'll describe what is being delivered, and what you can do for your specific requirements, and we will cover the factors that go into a great user experience. If you are interested in this subject, please attend session 14020, PeopleSoft Answers: How to Create a Great PeopleSoft UI. This session will be on Tuesday, Oct. 4th at 1:15 in Moscone West, room 2024.
