It’s official, there is no PeopleSoft 9.3

This morning Oracle released a statement confirming that there will not be a PeopleSoft 9.3 for any of its applications.

This isn’t a surprise – as it’s something that has been alluded to on more than one occasion by Oracle execs – and neither is it to be viewed as a negative step.

The model of big, disruptive, high cost upgrades every several years no longer works and continuous improvement is now the accepted best (more...)

PeopleTools 8.54: Looks Exciting

I’ve been a bit behind on reading my news.  Back in April, PeopleSoft released their “Release Value Proposition” for PeopleTools 8.54, and it’s got me excited about it.  Then, a week or two ago, PeopleSoft published the pre-release notes.  I don’t have any inside information, but I thought I would list the features that looked exciting to me…

Flipping The Fit Gap

I've been in the software business a long time now...I can remember from first-hand experience how things were done 15 and 20 years ago.  It seems like one of the biggest changes from then to now comes in our approach to "Fit Gap".

Fit Gap sessions are part of most packaged application implementations approaches.  The idea is to compare user requirements with software functionality in order to see how well the software "fits" with (more...)

There’s also an excellent web-comic here that explains quickly how the exploit works:

Here is Oracle’s list:

Simple Is The New Cool

We've all heard it: "simple is the new cool".  It's true.

We certainly see it in the UX world.  Simple designs for human interaction.  Tell me what I need to do, how to do it, and make it easy.  If I only had a dollar for every time I heard that mantra... And when we consider the market moving to the cloud, UX is the major differentiation - and simple is carrying the day every (more...)

Cross Posted from my Personal Blog

I managed to get through high school and college never taking a second language, even in the ’80s this required advanced maneuvers through the academic handbook.  Why would I do this?  Was I against taking a language?
