Advisory Group Goals and Objectives for 2016-2017


Here’s what your Advisory Group is striving to achieve this year:



·         Recruit regional conference participation by publishing conference information through newsletters, listserv and encouraging attendance and presentations.

·         Prior to the 2017 Alliance, post two reminders on the forum encouraging users to vote on enhancements.

·         Facilitate opportunities to explore new AA functionality and provide opportunity for members to respond and give input by organizing relevant sessions and panel discussions.



·         Work with Oracle/PeopleSoft product strategists, analysts and developers on enhancements and produce White Papers if relevant.

·         Complete an annual review of enhancement requests and determine the top five enhancements.

·         Provide product use cases, as requested.

·         The AA PAG will advocate for attention to pre-release bundle testing, complete documentation of changes and identification of cross-module implications.

·         Continue PAG involvement with beta testing whenever possible.


Building Community by Networking & Sharing

·         Initiate and support collaboration with other Product Advisory Groups on cross-PAG topics.
