I’m looking forward to the UK PeopleSoft Conference on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
If you’re UK based and work with PeopleSoft then there’ll be something for you there. This year there are 4 streams, the usual three of Tech, HR and Financials, plus a new Global Payroll stream, and all 4 are full of content.
The agenda is available here, but in the Tech stream there’s lots to grab the interest. I’ll be spending most of my time in the Tech stream where we have sessions on some of the new features for those interested in Tools 8.5x (Reporting Console, Web Services, Test Framework) and some other sessions that apply to older versions of PeopleTools too (Archiving, Query, Batch Scheduling).
I’ll also be giving a couple of sessions myself. The first is “Case Study: How using ‘The Cloud’ accelerated Pret’s PeopleSoft project”, where I’ll walk through how we used Amazon EC2 to dramatically speed-up/improve Pret a Manger’s PeopleSoft implementation. I’m also doing a joint session with a very smart colleague of mine – Simon Wilson … I’ll be talking about “Automating and Monitoring PeopleSoft using Open Source Tools” and Simon will be showing his solution for “Comparing and Syncronising Config between Environments”.
Although there’s some great content, that’s only half of the value of attending. It’s also awesome to meet like-minded peers to discuss what’s happening at different customers and hear the great things that they’re doing.
Looking forward to it!
