Organizations are managing a daunting task to safeguard access to their PeopleSoft application from on-site and remote/hybrid users. On top of that challenge, they must manage potential security threats like phishing, ransomware and data exfiltration from hackers. Together this creates an atmosphere of constant battling to detect and respond to intentional and unintentional threats to the organization.

In their latest report, “A Practical Guide to Zero Trust Implementation”, Forrester recommends the Zero Trust security model (aka. ‘never trust, always verify’) to provide an extra layer of security beyond the traditional perimeter-based security. Due to increasing digital transformation and the COVID-19 pandemic, Zero Trust is rapidly becoming the security model of choice for many organizations. However, implementing effective Zero Trust can be challenging for organizations.

Contract entry has become a very long and daunting process as our customer contracts are getting more complicated. To address this challenge, we implemented a csv file upload process to create contracts utilizing Component Interface. The new process has saved our company many hours of manual work every month. This presentation will discuss why we needed to implement the new process and show how we got it done.

Objectives:
•The manual entry of a contract was taking more than 30 hours of user's time.
•We implemented a csv upload process which uses 10 different component interfaces to create contracts, add amounts and discounts, rev plans, bill plans, projects, milestones and renewals.
•Challenges -
•Lack of real time contracts to test in lower environments as the associated projects did not exist there.
•We had to add a lot of validations to the process to avoid process failures.

‘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.
