NUS Convenes Inaugural Asia PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions Special Interest Group

The National University of Singapore (NUS) has convened the first ever Asia PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions Special Interest Group (Asia CSSIG) at a two-day event held on campus on November 24.

NUS raised the idea of an Asia CSSIG in response to the increasing number of higher education institutions around the region adopting Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise Campus Solutions.

Tommy Hor, Director of NUS Computer Centre, said: "Asian institutions are at a different stage of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions adoption compared to our counterparts in North America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand. "PeopleSoft Campus Solutions is seeing good adoption in almost every country in Asia," said David Redden, General Manager, Asia-Pacific Education Sector, Oracle.

The Asia CSSIG is open to all existing institutions that use PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, or who are considering the use of the solution. Response to the inaugural Asia CSSIG was overwhelming, with the number of attendees significantly exceeding initial expectations. The 140 participants from 25 education institutions in Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, Malaysia also represented a good mix of management and project/support team representatives from the various institutions.

The various presentation sessions at the Asia CSSIG were helmed by participating partners who covered key aspects of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions experience from implementation, upgrades, through to the solution going 'live', and thereafter. Participating higher education institutions, including NUS, shared their experiences and key learning points about the solution. Participation from Oracle was noteworthy, with the Oracle Development organisation's Gary Allen, Senior Strategy Manager from the Oracle Campus Development team, providing insight into PeopleSoft Campus Solution product direction/updates and enhancements. Oracle Consulting Services also shared best practices and critical success factors in implementing PeopleSoft Campus Solutions across several regional universities, including NUS. There was also an update from HEUG on the organisation's latest developments.
