Neither Rain, Nor Sleet ...

... nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." Don't know if it's still true for the US Mail but, the Publisher team was on the go despite the "epic" storm in San Francisco today.
Siva Ramanathan from MasterCard and Noelle
gave a great session on Publisher in E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, Siebel, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and JD Edwards World.
Siva gave a great demonstration of using the BI Publisher Template Builder. He also told the story of how it used to take a business analyst, an IT developer, and a consultant from the vendor of their 3rd party tool THREE MONTHS to create a new PO or modify an existing one (like changing the signature) - and this was happening across 50 operating units. Now, using BI Publisher, it takes a business analyst only THREE DAYS to create a new PO or implement changes and does not require the intervention of IT nor anyone else. Imagine ... 30 times faster implementation time with 1/3 the people to create or edit a Purchase Order ... Priceless.
Noelle, the superwoman of many hats, covered each Application's integration with Publisher and an update of what's new and planned for each. The audience was hanging on her every word when they weren't laughing at her jokes.
There was a little less traffic at the demo pod today ... possibly due the storm but, Fethiye, Leslie, Noelle, Alin, Klaus, Nikos and Pradeep kept the demos going all day long. And of course, Osama-bey, the inspiration behind the innovation, was there to pitch in as needed.
Also saw a presentation packed with lots of great details on using Publisher in PeopleSoft by Millie Babicz and Todd Kummer of SpearMC Consulting.
