Last week, the Quest International User Group did not disappoint with an eventful and busy Collaborate 2016 at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 5,700 plus customers in attendance were very engaged and actively contributed to the buzz with PeopleSoft, particularly around the value proposition of upgrading to HCM 9.2 and PeopleTools 8.55. PeopleSoft customers in attendance was up from last year's conference. About 70% of the PeopleSoft customers surveyed at the conference were already on 9.2 or in the middle of upgrading. With all the talk about 9.2, there was plenty of focus on how customers are making the most of the PeopleSoft Update Manager tool to selectively adopt new Fluid enabled capabilities, explore new application functionality, and stay current with regulatory/legislative compliance updates such as the Affordable Care Act. There were also many interesting customer- and partner-led sessions on how to make the most of new 9.2 application features and the new capabilities available with PeopleTools.
As the conference came to a close, we announced the General Availability of HCM Image #17 available for download from www.peoplesoftinfo.com. For a video preview of all the features available with Image #17, click on the following video --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgSQ6sfhomo
Just as a reminder for those who missed Collaborate this year, you have a second chance to socialize and connect with other PeopleSoft customers, PeopleSoft subject matter experts, and Product Managers at the Quest RECONNECT conference in Rosemont (Chicago), Illinois July 19th - 21st. See you there.
