OpenWorld 2015 Tuesday

Today in the PeopleSoft stream of this massive Oracle OpenWorld conference the key messages have been

1. FLUID:  All applications being built going forward will be built using Fluid technology.  It is the primary UI.  It's not just a mobile technology.  It is the PeopleSoft UI now. Classic, of course will still be available and supported.

2. SEARCH:  In response to concerns over the future of Oracle SES the announcement today is that Elastic Search will be available to use sometime in 2016. https://www.elastic.co

No PeopleSoft SaaS

3. CLOUD:  Oracle are NOT investing in a PeopleSoft SaaS offering.  However, tools and features are being added to PeopleSoft in order to make it much easier to manage in a private or public cloud environment.

Cloud "enable" PeopleSoft



4. PEOPLETOOLS 8.55+:  A whole ton of new features and improvements arriving in PeopleTools 8.55 and beyond including
  • Fluid Dashboards
  • Fluid Activity Guides with horizontal and vertical train-stops
  • User will see the Fluid Homepage when they login as default now.
  • Tile Wizard (like Pagelet Wizard)
  • Central Homepage administration with push mechanism to deploy to users
  • Tiles can now be resized by the user
  • Navbar will now remember your context when it's collapsed and works a lot faster 
  • Fluid Master/Detail pages

I ended the day with my Cedar Consulting colleague and friend Duncan Davies (aka The PeopleSoft Tipster) on the Penthouse roof terrace of The Battery for a UK Partner networking event and BBQ.
