A leader acts as a sort of facilitator, making sure that every voice is heard and all ideas are considered. Here are ten key differences between a manager and leader.

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.).

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!

PeopleSoft released the PeopleSoft In-Memory application to help Chief Financial Officers and Finance Executives drive business performance through faster, well-informed decisions based on real-time simulations of business and regulatory changes. Today’s environment is challenging for CFOs to keep reducing costs, maximize productivity, find tools supporting financial decisions that impact the bottom line and, finally, reduce decisions based on historical data or estimates. CFOs need a global view of their organization and the ability to forecast the effect of the business world – and spreadsheets are far from it.

Recruiting is essential in attracting the productive workforce your company needs. For many HR directors, a key objective in supporting current business and growing new initiatives is to improve job search efficiency without compromising the candidate experience. 

According to the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, 90% of candidates apply for jobs through the Internet. With the growth of online recruiting, hiring managers need to select from larger pools of candidates, find the ones best suited for the position and engage with them more effectively. Top candidates have more choices, and how they feel about their treatment during the search process will have a direct impact on their decision to join your organization -- or the competition. So how can your organization set its online recruiting strategy apart from the crowd?

As Internet users, we get a new search experience every few years (Amazon, Google, etc). The new PeopleTools 8.52 brings a better consumer search experience within the application. PeopleTools 8.52 introduces a new search capability that not only improves the ability of users to find content, but will also fundamentally change the way people navigate around the PeopleSoft system. PeopleSoft’s Search Framework, otherwise known as the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, provides a standard, declarative method for creating, deploying and maintaining search indexes for all of your PeopleSoft applications. The Secure Enterprise Search (SES) provides a free text search across multiple objects and multiple instances within PeopleSoft.
