PeopleSoft Automated Testing Success: A Case Study at State of North Dakota and ND University System
Presented by Tarunraj Amuthan, Manager, Test Automation & Randall Johnson, Vice President, SpearMC
Hear about how both the State of North Dakota and the North Dakota University System streamlined their PeopleSoft Automated Testing operations by using PTF and Testing Grounds. Testing a PeopleSoft patch is usually a major undertaking for any organization. However, the State of North Dakota (ND State) and the North Dakota University System (NDUS) had the added complication of maintaining six separate pillars, including Campus Solutions, Financials, Human Capital Management, and Enterprise Learning. Staying current is no easy task, so ND State and NDUS teamed up with SpearMC to implement an automated testing solution that drastically lessened the burden on staff and improved defect identification. We will discuss how we implemented PeopleSoft Test Framework, where our Testing Grounds bolt-on fits into the equation, and how we are supporting their patching moving forward.

Emerging Technologies like ML/AI for Scanning Unstructured data from Peoplesoft
Presented by Pratap Madgula, Director of Innovation and Implementation, OneLink and Finance Technology, Kaiser Permanente
An effective way to leverage emerging technologies to solve some common complex problems which are currently being done manually. A cool way to utilize ML/AI along with Natural Language processing to scan large volumes of text. The primary goal is to identify Keywords and frequency of keywords that relate to diseases using tokenization and Lemmatization models. Opensource Models like FuzzyWuzzy logic and Document Frequency Terms (DFT) were extensively used.
Our Business Operations at Kaiser captures long texts and unstructured data for each research subject (about 6000 to 10000 of them a year) that they work on. This unstructured data is captured in long text fields and sometimes runs into multiple pages for each subject. We created models to scan through volumes of texts, identify Keywords using python Spacy models, and have the models predict the area of and type of study.

Driving Efficiency into Selective Adoption (or how to stop PUM updates from feeling like a full upgrade)
Presented by William Cage, Executive Vice President & Saad Mohammed, Director – Functional Services, ERPA
PeopleSoft release 9.2 introduced a major change in the way that the system is kept up to date and extended with new functionality. The promise was greatly reduced effort and much more timely updates. Many organizations have not seen the benefits they expected. Mostly, this is driven from a view that PUM updates are mini upgrades, and the Selective Adoption message and process is not coming through. This webinar will focus on the full process of Selective Adoption (of which PUM updates are only a part) and provide strategies that will allow the update process to become more efficient through scheduling, planning, use of automated testing, and development strategies to minimize the impact of customizations. We will include thoughts around governance also. This should provide a strong structure to put in place that will drive down the effort involved in applying updates and will increase your internal users satisfaction with the system.
