Pakistani Universities Get Part in Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions

Pakistani universities shared ideas, information and experiences at an
event at the National University of Singapore to provide a unified
voice to Oracle on all issues involving the solution among Asian
users, so as to better inform the scoping, planning, implementation,
and product development expertise surrounding Oracle’s PeopleSoft
Campus Solutions for the future.

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.

Mr 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. The challenges faced by Asian institutions are
also quite different as the education systems are not entirely the
same. In a rapid changing business and technological environment, we
believe our needs can be better served when we come together to share
with Oracle our requirements, challenges and priorities in a single
voice.”

“PeopleSoft Campus Solutions is seeing good adoption in almost every
country in Asia,” said David Redden, General Manager, Asia-Pacific
Education Sector, Oracle. “This Asia Campus Solution Special Interest
Group is a great and timely initiative from NUS, and it is very
encouraging to see this marquee Asian university work so hard to
jump-start a forum such as this – bringing together like-minded,
skilled practitioners who are managing, collectively, a huge number of
students and alumni members in the region, to improve their skills and
expertise and to provide their technology partners like Oracle with
rich feedback and insight for us to help make the solution even more
applicable to institutions in Asia.”

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.
