UIS showcased PeopleSoft insights at this year’s COLLABORATE 19

University Information Services (UIS) had six colleagues participate at COLLABORATE 19, an annual technology and applications forum for the Oracle community. This year’s conference was held in San Antonio, Texas from April 7-11, 2019 with over 1,000 education sessions, 250 exhibitors, and 600 speakers present.

COLLABORATE 19 is the largest user-led, user-focused event for Oracle users of all levels. IT decision makers, users, and vendors gather to share real-world insights and practical solutions to maximize return on their Oracle investments.

“This is my and my team’s third year attending COLLABORATE, and we always gain new insights into the direction PeopleSoft is going as well as how other companies and universities are using myriad technologies with PeopleSoft to deliver world class solutions to their users.  It also served as a fantastic team-building and collaborative event between HCM Development, HCM Systems, QA, and Team Portal in a setting where we could easily discuss the benefits and challenges of implementing new solutions for the University of Colorado,” said Chris Toomer, Assistant Director for Enterprise Portal, Mobile and System Applications.
