Opening Session

Innovating with PeopleSoft in Today’s Turbulent Times

At Reconnect 2020, you will see presentations from Oracle, customers, and partners on new features and strategic investment opportunities.  Continuous delivery and innovation remain imperatives for delivering value, and yet they are even more challenging now, given unprecedented changes to budgets, operating models and economic outlooks.  In this session, Rebekah Jackson, vice president of product strategy at Oracle, will share insights, trends, and lessons learned from the PeopleSoft Innovators – customers like you that have deployed new capabilities.  Which initiatives delivered value?  Were they worth the cost?  And, if they had it to do over again, would they?

How to Overcome the Challenges in PeopleSoft Financial Reporting

Does this sound familiar? “We were running reports in PeopleSoft/nVision, but the data produced was just a point in time. There was no interaction. If a number came out and you wanted to know the data behind it, you had to go into PeopleSoft and create and run several iterations of a query to find the dollar amount and what was behind that.” If that sounds like your organization today, then you won’t want to miss this presentation and live demonstration, where you’ll discover a better way of tackling financial reporting in Peoplesoft that could save you hundreds of hours, ever year.
