The third day of the Alliance 2014 conference kicked off with an inspirational keynote from Shawn Achor, a lecturer who is regarded as one of the world’s leading experts on the connection between happiness and success. Achor, who teaches for the Advanced Management Program at Wharton Business School and collaborates on research with Yale and Columbia University, delivered his keynote on “The Happiness Advantage.”

In 2012, Achor’s research on happiness made the cover of Harvard Business Review. His TED talk has become one of the most popular of all time, with over 3 million views.  “The Happiness Advantage,” his newest lecture, recently began airing on PBS stations nationwide.The gist of his lecture is this; most people believe that once they become successful, then they’ll be happy. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology and neuroscience have shown that this formula is actually backwards: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe.  In “The Happiness Advantage,” Achor, who spent over a decade living, researching, and lecturing at Harvard University, draws on his own research—including one of the largest studies of happinesspotential, both at Harvard and companies like UBS and KPMG—to fix this broken formula. Using stories and case studies from his work with thousands of Fortune 500 executives in 51 countries, Achor explains how we can reprogram our brains to become more positive in order to gain a competitive edge at work.

Ataway's Tina Travis presents at Alliance 2014.

Ataway was excited to attend many sessions last Monday at the Alliance Conference! On the second day of the event, Oracle made a big announcement  regarding major investments in higher education solutions, including a new Oracle Student Cloud, a new Higher Education functionality delivered in Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, and a new release for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Suite. 

Oracle plans to provide a flexible deployment model for administrative systems customers in the Higher Education field. Oracle's offerings will enable institutions to run their student and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems on premise or to migrate to a cloud-based deployment when it makes sense for the institution.

Since Friday morning, around 150 customers have been in Vegas for the PAG/TAG summit, which started at 7:30 and wrapped up on Saturday afternoon. The PAG/TAG summit is an amazing opportunity for institutions to have better dialogue with Oracle Product representatives on the Oracle product lines. At Ataway, we highly recommend clients participate and represent their areas of expertise, working together with Oracle to build the roadmap of your future.

The Alliance Conference officially kicked off this Sunday with 19 Community Sessions -- informal sessions providing an opportunity to network with other individuals who have an interest in specific process areas, as well as getting an overview of the conference and sessions being presented in this track. As usual, the Community Sessions proved to be an incredibly useful way to meet with other users and product experts. It also had a good overview of what sessions to attend at the conference.

The Community Sessions were immediately followed by the Mix and Mingle at the MGM Grand Garden Arena concourse prior to the Opening Session. Mix and Mingle was a great opportunity to network, catch up with attendees and help Oracle customers with technical and business process questions.

The day concluded with the Opening Session and Reception in the Vendor Hall. Ataway had the pleasure to talk to a lot of institutions and respond to many questions on PeopleSoft 9.2 HCM, Finance, Campus Solutions, Fusion, BPM and SOA.

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow, Monday, March 10th, for our mini Session: Leveraging WorkCenters for Admissions & Recruitment (3:15 PM - 3:45 PM, Room 122). And be sure to check out our guide on the 17 sessions you won't want to miss at #Alliance2014!
