It is finally here - Oracle Open World 2016! Starting this weekend, tens of thousands of Oracle customers and partners will meet in San Francisco, CA for one of the largest annual user conferences in our industry. If you are a PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM) customer, there will be plenty of sessions, content, and opportunities to network with other customers, Oracle employees, and partners who are subject matter experts in all the different areas covered by PeopleSoft HCM. The vast majority of HCM related sessions will take place at the Palace Hotel at the corner of Market and New Montgomery Sts.
This year we have more customers co-presenting with us than any other previous Open World. Come to our sessions to hear first hand how your peers in the industry have been successful with the deployments of PeopleSoft, including how they are adapting to the ever changing business climate that we all face. There will be specific sessions covering Selective Adoption, Fluid, Global, Self Service deployments, among many others. We will also have a few customer panel discussions where you will hear different perspectives and strategies for PeopleSoft deployments. Customers that are scheduled to share the stage with us this year include:
We are also bringing back the popular Meet the Experts sessions - three of them in fact - focused on HR, Workforce, and Talent Management. This is an excellent opportunity to not only engage with PeopleSoft product experts, but also to network with other customers and ask any question you want.
Also, do not forget about the demo grounds at the Palace Hotel. This year, we will staff the PeopleSoft HCM demo pods with product experts who can answer questions about both future roadmap features as well as existing functionality. Use the demo grounds as a resource to learn more about how the applications should and can work for your organization, whether it is a product you already license or not.
This year's conference theme for PeopleSoft customers will be Fluid. With all the momentum of customers deploying Fluid, coupled with the Fluid enhancements available in PeopleTools 8.55 and our latest HCM images, we are leveraging many Open World sessions to share Fluid stories and experiences with you. We realize many customers are still in the planning phases of their Fluid deployments which is why sessions focused on Fluid will most likely be the best attended ones this year.
