Earlier this month, Ataway participated in the second annual Asia HEUG conference held in Macau, for which we were proud to be a Silver Level Sponsor. (View our Day 1 Recap here). During the conference, our focused and clear message to deliver strong business expertise to the region for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions along with continuing Ataway’s proven methodology for developing local support teams was very well received by this most gracious audience of higher education professionals.

With approximately two hundred people in attendance, we spoke in depth to a varied mix of Institutions representing public and private schools from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines and Singapore.

Ataway's Experts at our booth in Macau.

The largest Oracle application user conference in Asia for the higher education industry kicked off earlier today! The 2013 Asia Higher Education User Group (HEUG) Conference is currently underway at the Sheraton in Macau, and Ataway is excited to be a Silver Level Sponsor for this year’s event. Following a successful inaugural conference in Hong Kong last year, Asia HEUG turned the conference into an annual event at the request of the fast-growing user community in the region. The first day of this year’s conference kicked off with sessions and a standing-room-only crowd!

Day 1 of the 2013 Asia HEUG Conference saw some great sessions from industry leaders.The University of the Philippines gave a presentation on how they addressed the needs of their students and faculty members located across different campuses all over the Philippine archipelago by using a hybrid, cloud-based solution in addressing these issues and constraints.

Gary Allen from Oracle also gave a great presentation on Business Intelligence and Analytics to help Higher Education Institutions understand, learn and gain insights from enormous amounts of data . Allen demonstrated tools organizations can use to manipulate and analyze  big data in order to make better decisions for their operations and interact with delivery services for students, instructors, staff and other constituents.

The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) also gave an insightful session on their academic advising module. In 2012, OUHK decided to make use of the latest features of the module to develop a user-friendly and powerful online function (Course Choice Advisement). The module addresses the specific needs of OUHK students and helps them make effective course enrollment plans for graduation. During the presentation, OUHK shared their challenges and discussed how they have been tackled. The session was very useful for universities thinking of fine-tuning the academic advising functions of Campus Solutions 9.0.
