Oracle Open World 2016 from a PeopleSofter point of view: Thursday 22nd and Wrap Up

So Open World 2016 has come to an end. But before the curtains fell, there was still some activity and interesting PeopleSoft sessions to attend.

Reporting and Analytics

My day started with a session name Getting the most Out of PeopleSoft - Reporting and Analytics [CON7075] with the participation of Matthew Haavisto, Jody Schnell and Ramasimha Rangaraju.

Reporting has evolved a lot in the last few years, and not only in PeopleSoft. Gone are (more...)

Oracle Open World 2016 from a PeopleSofter point of view: Wednesday 21st

We are reaching the end of Oracle Open World. Wednesday ended with the Appreciation Event which included the star appearances of Gwen Stefani and Sting. Both were really appreciated by the public, but I personally found Sting's performance just fantastic.


Anyway, let's live music behind before it clearly shows I don't have a clue about it. Wednesday was also a very intense day around PeopleSoft. I was able to attend very valuable sessions around different (more...)

Oracle Open World 2016 from a PeopleSofter point of view: Tuesday 20th

We are now at full steam in what regards PeopleSoft at Oracle Open World. As my jet lag gets better (today I woke up at 4.30am, quite an achievement), so does the announcements at the PeopleSoft specific sessions.

The day started with a general keynote facilitated by Safra Catz and Thomas Kurian. I have found the second part most interesting as it went deeper into the announcements made last Sunday by Larry Ellison. Compared (more...)

Oracle Open World 2016 from a PeopleSofter point of view: Sunday 18th and Monday 19th

In every crisis there is an opportunity.

This is what I thought as I woke up for the second day in a row before 2.30am due to my jet lag here in San Francisco. So I decided to use this marvellously quiet time to write my first blog article about my experience here at Oracle Open World 2016.

Sunday was good to warm up our engines. We completed the event registration. I am saying (more...)

PeopleSoft – What Does The Future Hold?

In an earlier post titled Banishing PeopleSoft Myths I shared my perspective of the current state of the PeopleSoft product and marketplace. I thought it’d be an interesting exercise to try to look forwards and to define what I think the future might hold for the product line. Some of this might be a little off-target, some might be a mile off target and some I might have changed my mind on if you ask me (more...)

issue with security profiles while upgrading

TL;DR: Do not use secured view in the definition of a security profile During a migration from 11i to R12.2 we noticed that whatever chance in the assignment screen had as side effect that the employee was not visible anymore under secured responsibilities. So Oracle deleted all records for such employee from the per_person_lists table, but the call to renew them did nothing. The

OpenWorld 2016

In a matter of days, customers, partners, employees... and everyone else related to the Oracle ecosystem will converge on San Francisco for the 2016 edition of the Oracle OpenWorld conference. This is by far the most comprehensive Oracle conference of the year, covering both applications and technology. I am really looking forward to attending this year as an Oracle partner. Since I won't be working the Oracle demo grounds, please feel free to stop me (more...)

See you at Oracle Open World!

This year I will be attending again Oracle Open World, as I did in 2014. I'm really looking forward learning what is new in PeopleSoft and networking with lots of interesting people from around the globe.




However, this year will be special for me as we will be presenting one of the sessions. The presentation will be delivered by César García Galán, a fellow consultant at BNB, Daniel Plaza Pardo, PeopleSoft (more...)

I’m Logesh Balasubramaniam and this is how I work

The next profile in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Logesh Balasubramaniam. Logesh is one of the newer bloggers – posting on his LeanIT Designs site – however he provides great content and is usually one of the first to tackle new functionality.

Oracle Buys NetSuite

Oracle set the ball rolling with Netsuite acquisition. Oracle OpenWorld Keynote—Cloud Innovation, Mike Hurd (Oracle CEO) predicted that by year 2025 - "Two software-as-a-service (SaaS) suite providers will have 80 percent of the cloud enterprise application market. I volunteer us to be one of them Everything came full circle with NetSuite last week, when Oracle […]

Hit by the ‘Tech Support’ Scammers

I got a call earlier today from the Tech Support Scammers. You’ve probably heard of this horribly unethical practice already, but the premise is that they cold-call seemingly randomly and try to convince you that there is a problem with your PC/router, and then attempt to get you to allow them remote access to your PC to ‘fix it’. Some then claim problems are due to expired warranties on the computer and demand payment, others (more...)

Banishing some PeopleSoft Myths

There seems to be quite a bit of uncertainty and misinformation in the PeopleSoft marketplace currently, so I thought it might be time to banish a few myths:

1. PeopleSoft isn’t being improved/getting investment

There are those with vested interests or other biases that will always deny this regardless of the evidence put in front of them, but PeopleSoft is improving in leaps and bounds. In the last couple of years PeopleSoft has been moving at (more...)

Understanding Positive Pay

Positive Pay can best be described as a fraud prevention program or tool. Technology has increasingly facilitated the ability of criminals to create counterfeit checks and false identification that can be used to engage in fraudulent check activities. As a result, companies must adopt practices to protect against check fraud. Positive pay can provide this […]

Dynamic Java in PeopleCode

The PeopleCode language has a lot of features and functions. But sometimes, it seems there are tasks we need to accomplish that are just out of reach of the PeopleCode language. It is at these times that I reach for Java. I have written a lot about Java, so I'm sure many of you already know how to mix Java with PeopleCode. While certainly a rational solution, one of the pain points of a Java (more...)

Setting Environment Variables in Application Server/Process Scheduler Tuxedo Domains

The topic of how to manage environment variables was mentioned recently on the PeopleSoft Administrator Podcast
Recently I have built a pair of PeopleSoft environments for a proof-of-concept and have faced into exactly this problem.  I have two PS_APP_HOMEs (application homes) share the same PS_HOME (PeopleTools home).  The environment variables need to be correct before I open psadmin to administer the application server and process (more...)
