‘The Cloud’, a simple term with so many interpretations. PeopleSoft users considering a move to the cloud have many options. What cloud, what do I move and what value will I get by making the move? This session will provide an executive level view of what cloud options are available for PeopleSoft, things to consider when making the move and what you can expect once you make the move.
We will share perspectives from customers that have made the move, that are currently in the process of moving and that are evaluating if they should move. It is not a one-size-fits-all decision and having realistic expectations is an important first step.

This is not a technical presentation or a step by step guide to the cloud, but is designed to help managers and executives navigate the hype and options when considering a move to the cloud.

Objectives:
•There are several cloud vendors to choose from. This session will give you some things to consider to help you select the best one for your organization.
•In addition to selecting the right vendor, there are other factors to consider when making the move, do I move everything to the cloud or certain environments, and who does what once I am in the cloud? We will help with these questions and more.

The Regional Medical Center (RMC) in South Carolina had big plans for PeopleSoft going into 2020. With MIPRO Consulting’s assistance, those plans included updating PeopleTools as well as doing PUM updates and adding new features for both their Financial and Human Capital Management systems. Shortly after the projects kicked off, COVID arrived and could have brought everything to halt. Instead, RMC pivoted, adapted its plans to accommodate remote employees, consultants, and project managers. The end result was a successful, on-time update that included the use of many new features and a system that was current and positioned well for the future.

Everyone has back button experiences and opinions. Joy when it works. Confusion when it takes you somewhere unexpected. Frustration when absent. The University of Minnesota upgraded to PeopleTools 8.56 and fluid user interface in the spring 2019. This was proceeded by a lengthy technical and functional project including fluid tiles, fluid navigation collections, Unified Navigation, and much time understanding and modifying back button behavior. This research and effort produced reliable and predictable back button behavior.

Kick the back button blues (not the St. Louis Blues) and always get back to where you once belonged.

Objectives:
•Functional appreciation how the back button works.
•Discuss the back button. How it should function, that is, Oracle's intentions vs. our assumptions.
•Technical review exposing the back button mysteries.
•Special attention to debugging the back button using browser debugging tools. This is available to everyone, not just for developers.
•Review "bugs" identified by the University of Minnesota. Discuss back button related modifications. Our modifications were eventually converted to Event Mapping.
