August 2012:

SNUG Members:  we have a fantastic opportunity to attend a PeopleSoft/Oracle conference right here in our own backyard - Hartford, CT.  With budgets and time tight , its becoming tougher to travel to the west coast for critical current information on your Peoplesoft products.  The conference is called PeopleSoft ReConnect! (click this link for more information and to register)

Quest User Group is hosting the conference and is really ramping up its PeopleSoft education opportunities.  That’s why the SNUG is not only partnering on their new event but having it replace ours this fall because it’s going to be that good and right here in New England!  

 As you may already know, we’ve partnered with Quest for many years on the Quest Northeast Conference and though that was a good event, it was not focused solely on PeopleSoft.  ReConnect is PeopleSoft only conference and it was built with key PeopleSoft SIGs, RUGs and Oracle Product Strategy Teams participating.  Just think over 125 sessions of nothing but PeopleSoft content and networking!

 This deep dive is different than what’s offered at the global COLLABORATE conference or at our regular meetings, so take a look today! PeopleSoft ReConnect has 125+ sessions that include discussions with Oracle PeopleSoft strategists and development team, roundtable sessions and upgrade information. Topics inlcude the following: 

PeopleSoft Topics: 
PeopleSoft HCM Absence Management, Payroll, Benefits/Compensation, Talent Management, Time & Labor and more.

FINANCIALS- PeopleSoft Financials Accounts Payable, Project Costing, Asset Lifestyle Management, Receivables/Billing, General Ledger, Treasury Management and more.

TOOLS & TECHNOLOGY- PeopleSoft Release 8.52 features, functionality, the hurdles of implementation and work-arounds.

SUPPLY CHAIN/ MANUFACTURING & DISTRIBUTION- Customer Order Management, Inventory, Planning, Transportation Management, Manufacturing and more

SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT- PeopleSoft Supplier Relationship Management Procurement, eSupplier, Purchasing, Contract Management and more.

Space is filling up so be sure to register early to guarantee your spot. You’ll not only get a great education experience, but you’ll be able to share your thoughts with Oracle Strategy and Development leaders and the special interest groups that will champion future release discussions.
