Hanging With The HEUG

So I'm hanging with the Higher Education User Group this week in Las Vegas; Alliance 2014.  It's been a year or so since I've gotten to Alliance, so it's pretty cool to be back here.  I'm also excited in general about working with Higher Education customers.  I've only been here for a day so far, but I've noticed some very obvious things already:
  • The people here are almost desperate to provide their students with a (more...)

A Crazy Game Of Poker, Verse 2

A few months ago, I announced my resignation from EiS Technologies ("A Crazy Game Of Poker").  Another one of those leaps of faith - agreeing to part months ahead of time, not quite knowing where I was going next.  It's a great approach to parting ways with an employer if all parties can step up to behaving like grown-ups.  It gives the employer time to find and train a replacement as well as picking your (more...)

Big Data Oracle NoSQL in No Time - Getting Started Part 1

I have been exploring NoSQL and Hadoop since the buzz word started to flood.

I will start to blog more on that but before I begin with the (more...)

Installing PeopleTools Client on Ubuntu Linux Host

Ubuntu has been my choice of OS for some time now. It works great for the most part until I start trying to interact with the Microsoft-centric business world. App Designer is one of those pressure points. Normally, my clients give me a Windows-based remote desktop, but for playing around with things outside a client, I needed a way to run App Designer locally on my laptop.

I finally figured out how to install App (more...)

Alliance 2014 Agenda

It is hard to believe it has been a year since the HEUG Alliance 2013. We had a lot of fun in Indianapolis. I have been reviewing the 2014 session lineup and it looks pretty exciting. I must say that I am very pleased to see several sessions on REST, iScripts, and User Experience. With Alliance 2014 just a couple of weeks away, I wanted to make sure I posted my schedule:

Getting Lucky

Every once in awhile, I get lucky.  Out of the clear blue sky, life tosses me a bone…or a gold nugget…or a diamond.  We’re speaking figuratively, of course. I’m not much for bones unless it’s in the middle I’m BBQing.  Gold and diamonds…yeah, I’m not THAT lucky.  But I digress.

Datafication of Compensation Distribution

Is your data science providing you enough indications that challenge your existing compensation strategy?  Does it reveal that the art of compensation distribution performed by your managers is not in accordance with your compensation strategy? Old habits die-hard, so you need to make sure that your plan for data-driven decision-making is not getting overridden by compensation managers’ belief system and they are not ignoring data science recommendations.

I ran into this error with the Ben Admin Snapshot process. It was the second time I ran into it, so I thought that I had better make sure that I got this in my notes so I would remember it.

Great Link: PSChrome Extension

The other day, I ran across this nice Chrome Extension called PSChrome.

I had an old TamperMonkey script that I had used, and I was wondering if an extension might make more sense. When I looked to see if one already exists, I found PSChrome.
