In February of this year, Oracle University launched the PeopleSoft Learning Stream. Oracle's Learning Streams are short, educational vignettes. I was given the privilege of recording 6 streams:

We’re a shade under a month away from the biggest event in the calendar for those that work in the Oracle marketplace – the Oracle OpenWorld Conference.
It runs every year in San Francisco and draws a massive 60,000 attendees from 145 countries (plus 2.1 million online attendees). That’s huge.
There are more than 2,500 sessions from ~3,600 speakers, approximately half of which are customers/partners and half are Oracle themselves. As well as the sessions there are (more...)
A week or so back Cedar held a free Selective Adoption event for clients and friends. The idea behind the event was to help those on 9.2 already to make the most of what Selective Adoption can offer, and to show those that are yet to make the step to 9.2 what the future could look like.
The event went really well. Jeff Robbins opened the proceedings, giving an overview of the technology and what (more...)
Here is Youtube video for more insights on Hybrid Cloud Management :)
Just a couple more weeks and we will be enjoying the great weather and hospitality of San Francisco. I am anxiously anticipating another great OpenWorld conference. As always, I look forward to meeting with you between sessions or in the demo grounds. I will be presenting "PeopleSoft Developer: Tips and Techniques [CON8596]" on Monday, Oct 26 at 12:15 p.m. in Moscone West—3007.
I find the OpenWorld/JavaOne content catalog a little intimidating. If you are (more...)
I received notice yesterday that our latest book, PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Mobile Applications Development (Oracle Press) 1st Edition, is now shipping. Probably the most exciting news is that Amazon has the book listed as the #1 New Release in the Oracle Databases category.
No, it's not released yet. Well, maybe during the upcoming Oracle Open World
25-29 Oct. ? Who knows.
It's not even a RVP (aka r
It's called a Planned Features and Enhancements, note #1966243.2. I came across this My Oracle Support note whilst I was looking for something else. It is really worth reading.
An new Oracle internal DevOps team... to make faster development.
Non-exhaustively, we may see coming : (more...)
There are two extremely bad decisions commonly made with enterprise software, and I see both take place every day.
This doesn't work the way we expect. File a bug.
Over the years, my own experience tells me that two-thirds of bugs filed aren't really bugs. What we really have is a user who fails to understand how the software works. And, yes, we can always respond with RTM (or worse), but the stream of bugs (more...)
While doing a google search today I noticed that there is another blog that has copied all content from my blog and posted it as their own content and even kept a similar sounding name: http://oracleapps-technology.blogspot.com . I have made a DMCA complaint to google about this. I will update this article about how it goes.
I’m in awe of many people. I’m lucky to have met and worked with some truly smart and outstanding individuals. (I just wish I wasn’t so reserved and was able to tell them!)
If I was asked to pick a handful of the most talented people however, Seth Godin would undoubtedly be up there.
I’ve not met Seth in real life (although I had a near miss at OpenWorld 5 or 6 years back) but I’ve (more...)
Yup, moving on one more time. Hopefully for the last time. I’m leaving Sierra-Cedar Inc. for a position as Sr. Director with Oracle's HCM Center of Excellence team.
As an enterprise software guy, I see the evolution of SaaS and Cloud as the significant drivers of change in the field. I want to be involved, I want to contribute in a meaningful way, I want to learn more, and I want to be at the (more...)
I noted with interest a job posting earlier today. It has all the usual requirements (PeopleSoft, ERP, infrastructure, project management skills etc), but what jumped out at me was the phrase:
This is a 100% home based/remote working position. You will never be required to visit an office.
Although home-working is definitely on the increase – many clients now allow people to work remotely some of the time – this is the first that I’ve (more...)
Why Should I Care About Queuing?
Queuing in the application server is usually an indicator of a performance problem, rather than a problem in its own right. Requests will back up on the inbound queue because the application server cannot process them as fast as they arrive. This is usually seen on the APPQ which is serviced by the PSAPPSRV process, but applies to other server processes too. Common causes include (but (more...)
I’m genuinely delighted that Graham Smith has added his profile to our ‘How I Work‘ series. Not just because he’s one of the World’s best known PeopleSoft experts, or just because he’s recently joined Cedar’s family of PeopleSoft consultants, but mainly because I was sure he’d give some really interesting answers.
For those who don’t know Graham, he led the PeopleSoft Technical Team at Oxfam for longer than he’d want me to reveal, (more...)
