Explorations in Equation Engine

I took a nice foray into Equation Engine the other day, and I don’t want to forget what I learned.  On a demo instance, I want to go through a quick example of writing an Equation using Residency Data.  We’ll try to grab the Residency status for a particular person (in state or out of state).

The Data

You can see the residency data at this navigation: Campus Community > Personal Information > Identification > (more...)

Changing My Lab

As we continue to see more inroads made by cloud and SaaS technology, I have to admit to a downside...what can I work with in my local lab.

My local lab consists of two iMacs, an Apple Airbook, several arrays of 1-TB external hard drives from OWC, and a serious effort in leveraging virtual machines (I'm personally a VMware fan).  It wasn't too long ago that I could run most Oracle technology on my (more...)

About User Groups

I'm hanging out in the middle of nowhere this week...Fort Riley, Kansas.  Here to visit my granddaughters.  Which means I'm missing ODTUG's KScope14 conference.  Missed the OAUG/Quest/IOUG Collaborate14 this year as well.  Will also be absent at OAUG's ConnectionPoint14 in Pittsburgh.  Will be missing a few others that are usually on my calendar as well (But I made it to UTOUG Training Days, Alliance14, and the MidAtlantic HEUG conference - will also make it (more...)

New Pastures

I try to keep the content on here focused on the products and implementation tips however I hope you’ll indulge me with one personal post.

After six and a half enjoyable years I have left Succeed Consultancy. I’m leaving behind a lot of talented colleagues and great friends, however for reasons that I don’t want to bore you with it’s time to move on.

As of yesterday I’ve started work for Cedar Consulting. One of the (more...)

Learning From The Earnings Call

So now that we've heard the Oracle FY14 Q4 financial results, what did we learn?  Most noticeably, Oracle continues to be a company in transition...and that transition is beginning to take hold.  Changing a company and an ecosystem as large as Oracle's is like turning a battleship...it takes time.  But we have some pretty clear evidence that the battleship is turning.

Let's look at the numbers for a minute.  Oracle's SaaS and PaaS (more...)

PeopleSoft 9.3 – A clarification

After the release and subsequent removal of the ‘there is no PeopleSoft 9.3′ post on the My Oracle Support site and twitter I’ve been in contact with Oracle to find out the truth behind these rumours. Let me share with you what I have learned directly from Oracle…

Oracle believes PeopleSoft customers want new capabilities delivered at a high frequency that they can adopt in a non-disruptive, low cost way. They understand that the model (more...)

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...)

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?

Nope.  I desperately wanted to take a language, but I lacked confidence.

The only language offered in my high school was Spanish, and I wanted to take French or Japanese (it was the ’80s).
