My Experience with #Sangam17

Please check

#Sangam17 is the largest independent Oracle user’s group conference in India, featuring key speakers from Oracle and its users. I got an opportunity to attend the #Sangam17 conference this year that was held in HICC, Hyderabad on 8th & 9th Dec 2017. There were many sessions on oracle products and vibes surrounding cloud and chatbot all around. My specialization being in #Peoplesoft, I attended all the sessions related to that domain. The Key topics covered included New UI features, Cloud Manager and PTF.
The general session was on Oracle Cloud and the next wave of cloud computing. The PeopleSoft session that followed dealt with Peoplesoft Road map presented by Srilakshmi Ramachandra (@sri_ramachandra) from Oracle. This concentrated mainly on the latest UI enhancements in the recent HCM and FSCM releases. Srilakshmi covered the following topics.
  1. Innovations in HR Self-Service, Recruiting (Fluid Candidate Gateway) and Onboarding using Fluid UI and configurable activity guides(HCM).
  2. Innovations in Expense Reporting, Supplier Relations (FSCM).
  3. Classic Plus feature.
  4. Ongoing Investments and Strategy for Applications Technology, Peoplesoft HCM and Peoplesoft FSCM.
The next session explained Why Peoplesoft runs better on #Oracle_Cloud and the speaker Nagendra Krishnappa (@nagedra11180) pointed out some of the advantages of running PeopleSoft on oracle cloud when compared to other cloud providers. The main advantages of using Oracle cloud being
  • Automated lift and shift.
  • Automated people tools patch and upgrade
  • Automated setup of Selective adoption environment.
  • Deployment Time
This was more an informative session for customers who are considering moving PeopleSoft to cloud.
In the post-lunch sessions, Customer success stories and use cases got covered. It started with the session Digital Transformations by Extending PeopleSoft Fluid UI. This was an informative session on using Peoplesoft fluid UI as a part of Native App and Chatbots. The customer has a one-stop shop for all applications (including PeopleSoft) used in their organization using Native App and SSO. This eliminated the need for mobile PeopleSoft users from typing or bookmarking the URL to access their information. The session also covered how Chatbots are used to raise and approve a PS request. Personally, this was one of the interesting sessions of the conference and made me explore this area further.
The following session Case Study on usage of Peoplesoft PTF by HAYS helped in understanding their success on selective adoption and how they have efficiently used PTF for testing their agile delivery model. PTF has helped in reducing the amount of testing time required by their business users. A comparative data on the efficiency and effectiveness of using PTF vs manual testing was presented for the modules AP, AR, Billing and PayBill.
Key Takeaways on PTF
1. Developing a good, robust, reusable and consistent design for PTF.
2. Test scenarios - A complex few OR the simple many.
3. Good Design Vs. Bad Design.
4. Pilot Vs. Full rollout
The following session was on Fluid Sub Menu Creation in PS 9.2 .
Another Customer use case on PS HCM-CS Split utility. This session provides a detailed process flow on how to decommission PeopleSoft HCM from PeopleSoft CS using a custom developed automation tool.
The PeopleSoft sessions ended with one other informative session Shaping the Future of Business- Convergence of Oracle Cloud and Peoplesoft. The session covered three major areas
1. Oracle Cloud offerings.
2. PeopleSoft Cloud Manager.
3. Migration strategy.

I wrapped the conference by attending one more interesting session women in IT. The session explored ways of expanding women’s role in upper management and what women, men and organizations can do to achieve the same. There was a fun filled and healthy discussion at the end of the session.
