Alliance 2017

We are in the final countdown for Alliance 2017. I am really excited about this conference. It is such a great opportunity to meet up with old friends as well as make new ones. The Alliance session content and delivery is extremely high caliber. HEUG is a very engaged community. The MGM is a pretty amazing facility as well.

At GreyHeller our week starts with an amazing Monday workshop. On Monday, February 27th from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM, Larry Grey and I will be hosting a pre-conference workshop titled Advanced PeopleTools Development Workshop with Jim Marion (session 4378). Our objective is to give you hands on experience with all of the new PeopleTools including Fluid and the Event Mapping Framework. But wait, there's more... Fluid itself is a new development paradigm with a lot of flexibility. In this session you will learn how to use CSS and JavaScript to further enhance the PeopleSoft user experience. For more details and registration, visit the Monday Workshops page on the Alliance conference site.

On Tuesday morning at we join our partner MODO LABS at 8:30 AM to present the session A Student for Life - Engaging prospective, new, current, and past students has never been easier. In this session you will see how MODO LABS partnered with GreyHeller makes it trivial to embed PeopleSoft content in a native, secure user experience giving users access to native, on-device capabilities such as maps, notifications, etc.

On Tuesday, February 28th from 09:45 AM to 10:45 AM, our friends from the University of Massachusetts will be sharing about their experience mobilizing and modernizing the Student Center (session 4036) at their UMass Boston, Dartmouth and Lowell campuses using our PeopleMobile™ product. It really is amazing how our product transforms the PeopleSoft user experience. Definitely a "must see."

On Tuesday, February 28th from 1:15 PM to 3:15 PM, Larry and I will be leading the PeopleSoft Cloud to Ground workshop – Cloud Adoption Strategies and Best Practices (session 4381). In the ERP space, Hybrid "is the new black." There are a lot of great cloud enhancements to a traditional ERP. Anyone thinking about implementing cloud is also thinking about backend data integrations. But what about the user experience? You don't have to settle for a disjointed user experience. In this session, Larry and I will show you how your organization can integrate the UX layer into a single, common user experience.

On Thursday, March 2nd at 9:15 AM, my friend Felicia Kendall from UCF will be sharing about their highly publicized breach (including costs) and their experiences with securing PeopleSoft after a highly publicized breach. This should prove to be a very valuable session. The session is titled University of Central Florida: Post-breach Mitigation & Prevention Strategy (session 4108).

While attending Alliance, be sure to wander through the demo grounds. Our booth (#301) will be right beside the Oracle booth. I'm looking forward to wandering through and visiting with my friends from Oracle, Ciber, Deloitte, Gideon Taylor, Intrasee, Smart ERP, Accenture, Presence of IT, MODO LABS, Huron, Sierra-Cedar, and many more.

See you on the floor!

Jim
I was not at the conference unfortunately and would have loved to attend your workshop.
Is it possible to get the material you may have given out and/or the video that may have been recorded?
Thank you.
