PeopleSoft’s Fluid Payment Request feature allows users to submit ad hoc payment requests without the need for Accounts Payable assistance or advanced knowledge of PeopleSoft. An activity guide walks users through four simple steps to enter invoice, supplier and accounting information. Users can access the Payment Request feature wherever they are, as the pages are fully accessible from a desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Oracle’s report, The Digital Finance Imperative, outlines how the role of Finance within organizations is beginning to change in the Digital Age. As a company’s most valuable assets are now intangible, companies are turning to data in order to make informed decisions. In the digital age, CFOs and Finance management accountants in particular are becoming more of a player in this data-driven decision making, management realm.

This year the PeopleSoft ReConnect show took place at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. Early Tuesday morning for the opening day of this deep-dive event, customers were invited to network and participate in focused discussions during the SIGs (Special Interest Group) and the industry user group meetings.  had the pleasure to sit on the Financial Services Industry Users Group (FSIUG) meeting and as usual the meeting room was full. If you are not yet a member of a SIG or Industry user group, I highly recommend that you sign up for one. These customer groups are a great venue/tool for your organization to push for new functionality in the product. Further, Oracle Strategy is present and works closely with them for input and direction on where the Product should head next. It is also a fantastic opportunity to share experiences and gain insights from colleagues, who have gone through upgrade, integration, and customization issues that you and your team are facing now. The first day wrapped up with an exciting opening reception! Ataway had the pleasure to meet with past and current clients, prospects (hopefully future clients) and the Oracle Strategy Team during the opening reception

Marc Weintraub recently interviewed David Bain about the new changes in technology for PeopleSoft regarding mobility and the new Fluid UI.

After the introduction, 3G PeopleSoft was among the first application vendors to release an application that was native: iReceipts. PeopleSoft was again the first to release an application on the ADF Framework: Mobile Inventory Management. Again, PeopleSoft was the first to build with the Mobile application framework, the mobile self-services Campus Solution.

Then, PeopleSoft delivered on 9.1 a series of mobile applications using PeopleSoft technology:

David Bain explained that the mobile products were built with the technology available at the time, but the PeopleSoft team wanted to include within PeopleTools an easy-to- use technology for organizations. Including this Fluid UI technology within the PeopleSoft toolset will shorten the lifecycle costs for customers. The customers will then be able to use the same skills to administer and deploy PeopleSoft for Mobile applications, thus reducing the complexity.

The new fluid UI will be delivered to customers in 9.2 through the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM). PUM will help customers uptake any features or enhancements without having to go through a major upgrade. The application, with the Fluid UI, will be responsive and optimized on the technology they are running on.  A series of applications will be delivered for HR (Manager Self-Service Homepage, My Team view and Analytics approval, etc.) and Finance (Travel Authorization, Employee Status Reporting, Supplier watch list, etc.).

The new PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (UI) is coming to PeopleTools 8.54! Fluid UI enables the delivery of PeopleSoft applications in a modern, intuitive and personalizable way across multiple devices (i.e. tablets, smart phones and desktops). Regardless of operating system, the new Fluid UI is using the latest state-of-the-art technologies, such as HTML5 and CCS3, and incorporates them into the PeopleTools. Fluid UI will be able to detect what type of mobile device users are accessing the application from (i.e. tablet, mobile) and will leverage location, pictures and more!

This new UI will be responsive to a device’s form factor. This means that the application will be optimized to the device size and render the information in a dynamic manner.

During the Collaborate and Alliance roadshows earlier this year, the new Fluid UI was shown off by Paco Aubrejuan, Senior Vice President of Development for Oracle's PeopleSoft product line and Jeff Robbins, Oracle Senior Director, PeopleTools Strategy. Robbins was able to demonstrate several times how PeopleSoft is truly a state-of-the-art solution and that PeopleTools drives PeopleSoft innovation.

Ataway received recognition from Oracle during the Collaborate 14 conference!

Thousands of Oracle users met in Las Vegas last week for the annual OAUG/IOUG/Quest event, Collaborate 2014. On the second day of Collaborate, Adam Savage from the hit TV series “MythBusters” delivered the opening keynote. Savage, who was described by the Collaborate team as the ultimate mix between artist and scientist, captivated the audience with his presentation on “Curiosity: Asking the Right Questions.” 

The second day was also dedicated to product line roadmaps. Lyle Ekdahl, Oracle Senior Vice President Product Development, had a packed JD Edwards roadmap presentation (complete with crystal ball readings!) JD Edwards has already released 32 mobile-focused applications for Android and is planning 100 by the end of the year on iOS. Meanwhile, Paco Aubrejuan, Senior Vice President for PeopleSoft Products, presented the new PeopleTools 8.54 to support HTML5 mobile applications. PeopleTools 8.54 comes with mobile-friendly responsive designs for PeopleSoft or standalone pure mobile applications. Ataway had the pleasure to present two sessions: one on PeopleSoft Expense in the Cloud and the other on Transforming Finance. The two sessions were well attended.

Ataway was honored to receive a certificate from the Oracle Open Strategy Team (pictured above), which was awarded based on our new specializations, customer success stories and Solutions Catalog page

During the third day, education sessions continued in full force with a variety of exciting and relevant talks on all product lines. Between sessions, Quest members networked and shared ideas on their upgrade customizations.

Thursday was the last full day of Collaborate 14, and continued with standing room education sessions on JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, EBS, Fusion, SOA, BPM and SAP. Collaborate 14 ended with a great party, COLLABO-CON, which saw a packed dance floor full of superheroes -- and even some Stormtroopers! Attendees were able to grab candies and drinks from superhero themed bars and dance with Transformers!

Thanks for everyone who visited our booth, as well as the Quest, OAUG and Organization teams for all their efforts in making this event successful. Finally, thanks to Oracle for presenting so many sessions during the event and sharing their product knowledge with customers.

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.
