    Next Steps for Canadian Tax Components in Peoplesoft

    Jun 21, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    Following-up on the successful creation of a new XML build component for T2202 files, let's take stock of where thing stand on the Canadian tax front and decide where we go from here. When our working group was first formed, there was talk about revamping the existing SQR to make it more flexible, given most institutions had customized the out-of-the-box product to suit their own needs. So, is that still something we need improved? What other functionality is missing or needs improvement? This is a follow-up to the community discussion held during Alliance 2021.

    Fluid 101: You won't drown, it's only Fluid!

    Jun 22, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    A successful implementation of Fluid requires a lot of pieces to come together and work in cohesion. Not only must the technology aspects align but also the mindset of all users needs to be aligned. When DePaul University upgraded to CS9.2 we had the option to either stay on classic pages or take the opportunity and go to Fluid pages. Going Fluid would mean a very dramatic change to the look and feel of Campus Solutions. In addition, to look and feel, there would also be a huge change to the navigation for all users. In essence, we were going to change the entire portal for our Campus population and that would mean a learning curve and in-depth training for the entire user population. After almost 10 years of little change, this was a large undertaking. This presentation talks about why we made the decision to go Fluid, how we discussed and got buy-in from key areas around the university, how the discussions led to a uniform design of home pages and tiles. This presentation will also talk about the efforts that went into Communication and Training and briefly touch upon the technical aspects of creating Tiles and Navigation collections. Speaker: Shaheda Taji, Sr. IT Project Manager, DePaul University CPE ELIGABLE Credits: 1 Field of Study: Computer Software & Applications Learning Objective 1: Focus on communication aspects for large sized projects Learning Objective 2: Leading change for a university wide impacting initiative Learning Objective 3: Managing stakeholder expectations

    Tech Trends 2021: Thriving Through Disruptive Change

    Jul 13, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    We are pleased to invite you to the formal launch of our partnership with Info-Tech Research Group. The pandemic and the economic fallout that it brought caused many businesses to go bankrupt, unable to adapt to the disruption of shutting down physical operations and interacting with customers and employees digitally. It’s the latest reminder that to survive in today’s economy, organizations must build resilience to withstand the next major market disruption. To thrive, they must create the capabilities that will seize on the opportunities brought by change. In the Tech Trends 2021 Report we’ll explore three trends that help create resilience in the face of disruption: 1. Digital sustainability – apply technology towards the goal of achieving cost savings in energy reductions and reduced carbon emissions. 2. Machine learning by design – make machine learning a core part of your value proposition. 3. Self-sovereign cloud – maintain maximum control over your infrastructure with encryption, data sovereignty compliance, and optimal infrastructure.

    ElasticSearch 101 - What, Where, How and…Why is it needed?

    Jul 20, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
    ElasticSearch is the tool/process Oracle has delivered to allow searching of objects and information within Peoplesoft. While Elastic search exists within all pillars (HR, FIN, CS) this discussion will focus on the use of ElasticSearch within Campus Solutions (CS). In my experience, ElasticSearch, in CS, was introduced primarily to work in tandem with the Fluid Class and Catalog Search and Enrollment functions. While ElasticSearch can be used for many other functional areas, Class and Catalog searching was the primary delivered purpose. We will look at the following areas of interest related to ElasticSearch without going too deep into any one of the topics: • Why set up ElasticSearch? • What is needed to set up ElasticSearch? • Where are all the pages that can affect the set-up, testing, and administration? • How we have used ElasticSearch at Clarkson. • Who needs to be involved?

    Managing Remote Work: Lessons Learned and Future Challenges

    Jul 21, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (ET)

How can we leverage our experience from the past year of sudden remote work to help inform our best practices moving forward? Presenters will discuss various future scenarios (in-person, hybrid, fully remote) and provide questions and tips to help prepare ourselves and our teams for the next phase of this journey.

    PCM Community Hour: If you want to grow, where do you go?

    Aug 11, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (ET)
    Dinosaurs went extinct because they stopped evolving. Well, maybe they actually got hit by a meteor, but you know what they say that a species needs to evolve in order to remain relevant. The same concept applies to our careers and the roles and responsibilities we play . We are living in an ever changing world and adaptability is important, however, even more important is growth. With that in mind we'd like to discuss opportunities for growth for project managers and want-to-be project managers. Come join us in a lively and engaging (it always is when you all join us) conversation to identify opportunities for growth and navigating the future!
