Each year, UIS staff and other representatives from across the university represent CU as technology leaders in the higher education industry at Oracle’s Higher Education User Group Alliance conference (see Another year, another great experience sharing and gaining knowledge at the Oracle HEUG Alliance conference). This July, Jill Ibeck, UIS Director, HCM Systems, Rana Silver, UIS Application Manager, Campus Solutions Students Records and Sally Page, Senior Associate Registrar, CU Boulder, presented at Oracle’s Southwest Regional User Group (SWHEUG) to spread knowledge, best practices and further the university’s reputation in the field.
Page and Silver presented CU’s new Guest Access functionality (see CU Parents in the know with Guest Access and FERPA Consent to Release). Because of the technical nature of the audience, their presentation focused on helping other practitioners wanting to implement this functionality within their institutions understand the technology and practices behind making Guest Access a reality.
Ibeck presented best practices and lessons learned for process and the software development life cycle, project planning, regulatory patching tips & tricks and effective communication related to rolling out new functionality using Oracle’s PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM). As with Guest Access, Ibeck’s presentation was directed toward aiding practitioners with improving their process without having to “reinvent the wheel” as they rolled out updates using Oracle’s newer utilities for the first time.
Both of these important presentations showcased CU’s reputation and leadership as Oracle practitioners within higher education. CU will continue to innovate and grow in the forefront of higher education technology.
