Attending OpenWorld? Come and say HI!

We’re ready, are you??  As you plan your schedule for next week, please be sure to stop by PeopleTools booths at the Demogrounds area in Moscone West, first floor. The Demogrounds will be open Monday through Wednesday, and you’ll find us in 3 pods in section 3155. Rumor has it that we’re back in the far corner to attract traffic throughout the entire vendor fair. Do you have questions about Selective Adoption? The Fluid UI? PeopleSoft on the Cloud? Be sure to stop by.

We’ll also have our PeopleTools experts available to chat with you in the Meet the Experts hall on Wednesday at 1:45 - stop by Moscone West 3001A and get answers to your questions. We’re not trying to put the Support Center out of business, so DON’T bring your list of open SRs…but if you have some things you’ve been wondering about, run them past us - we’ll share our thoughts.

See you next week!

Open World: PeopleSoft Preconference Training Opportunity

If you are attending Open World this fall, you may want to take advantage of some additional PeopleSoft training that will be available.  Finding time to squeeze training into your schedule is never easy, so you may want to consider attending Oracle University’s Preconference training.  This is a one-day event held on Sunday, September 30th from 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Hilton or Hotel Nikko.  You can choose from a couple of PeopleSoft sessions (and Fusion sessions) that are delivered in an accelerated, seminar-style format.  This is a particularly convenient way to get training if you are short on time.


·         PeopleSoft Test Framework Script Creation and Optimization

·         New Integration Technologies for PeopleTools 8.52

·         Oracle Fusion Applications: Security Fundamentals


Get the details about the event here.  To register for the training, just add it to your Oracle OpenWorld pass from the conference registration pages

Oracle OpenWorld is on the Horizon

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 is only a few months away, and we're excited about our slate of sessions and other activities scheduled this year.  PeopleSoft sessions are perennially among the best attended and well-received sessions, and we plan to keep that trend going. We have a full complement of sessions planned, from updates for some of your yearly favorites to lots of completely new topics.  Some of the long-standing favorites include the PeopleSoft Technology Roadmap, PeopleTools Tips and Techniques and a number of candid panel discussions.

Coverage of the latest trends include new sessions on PeopleSoft on mobile platforms, PeopleSoft's new user experience and interaction model, advances in reporting and analytics and employing virtualization to reduce costs.  The PeopleTools team is also working closely with Applications groups this year to demonstrate to users how advances in PeopleTools will have a direct and beneficial impact on the latest applications releases.  There are plenty of sessions for developers and administrators as well, from sessions on enhancing, integrating, maintaining, and securing your applications, to tuning for performance.  We'll also update you on the latest platform roadmap.

In addition to these conventional sessions, we will of course be manning the demo pods, where you'll be able to see the latest functionality first hand. We plan to engage in lots of direct customer interaction.  One of the highlights each year for our team as well as attendees is the session in which a panel of senior PeopleTools leaders talks candidly and engages in open Q&A with customers about our products.  This is definitely a discussion worth joining in on.

Keep your eyes on this blog in the coming weeks for details on many of the sessions we have planned.  We look forward to seeing you at OpenWorld 2012!
