For several years now, UIS staff have actively participated in strategic activities that position us as leaders in the higher education community in the PeopleSoft application space, such as regularly contributing to Oracle national and regional conferences and offering presentations on our proven practices to spread knowledge. One of the most important ways UIS staff represent the university to ensure our technology needs are heard is by volunteering time each year to serve on Oracle Higher Education User Group (HEUG) Advisory Groups and committees. Currently, seven UIS staff members serve in a variety of different capacities.
Per the letter the HEUG President recently sent out thanking UIS staff for their time commitment and contribution to influencing the direction of PeopleSoft application modules:
The Advisory Groups are the heart and soul of our community. For example, we could not accomplish the following without representatives such as (UIS staff members):
Members may also serve on sub-committees and generally give presentations at the conference (see the UIS presentations offered at the 2017 HEUG Alliance conference). Additionally, UIS staff offer advice and support on our implementation and business processes as requested by member higher education institutions as they look to implement PeopleSoft modules in which we are viewed as experts.
Having a voice in influencing strategic direction for our critical universitywide applications ensures that CU’s current and future requirements are taken into account when Oracle makes decisions about the PeopleSoft enterprise system roadmap. UIS will continue to represent the university from the inside with HEUG representation and participation as leaders in the PeopleSoft space in the higher education community.
