OpenWorld Experience and Vision
Jackson explained that Oracle’s objective at OpenWorld is to illustrate the vision that you can achieve with PeopleSoft – what’s possible today and where it’s going in the future. Oracle will announce and demonstrate recently delivered features and capabilities along with the roadmap for various functional areas. In addition, Oracle will highlight the strategic investment areas – what they are and why they are being focused on.
There is a whole slate of product-focused sessions that will provide information about all of the product areas. There will also be a number of panel discussions that include product experts from the development team, members of the customer staff and teams that represent what you can achieve with PeopleSoft, and members of the partner community.
Oracle will also be announcing and recognizing the next set of PeopleSoft Innovators at the conference.

The Exchange at OpenWorld
Jackson urges PeopleSoft customers to head over to Moscone South to visit The Exchange, discussions areas, and kiosks that all house information that is valuable and available for PeopleSoft customers. There will be a kiosk for each of the PeopleSoft application areas and another for PeopleTools and technology.
The PeopleSoft Information Development team will be manning the kiosk and will be available to answer questions that you have about OpenWorld or PeopleSoft. They can also help you develop a custom session schedule to use while you’re at OpenWorld. If you give them information about your role, your product area, and the topics you are interested in, they will help you generate a custom session schedule.
The Applications Unlimited sales team will be in The Exchange to answer licensing questions you have. They can talk you through exploring a new product or getting a follow-up demonstration of a particular product or functional area.
