Starting with the OIT-sponsored “Get Upgrade Ready” event (see pictures below) this week, we are hosting events that prepare users for the change. The IT event was so well attended and so engaging, we wished we had sold tickets!
Soon-to-be-announced is the upcoming “Upgrade Fair,” a day-long event for PeopleSoft users to get a feel for what the upgraded systems will be like. [Update 4/8/15: here is a link for more information on the Upgrade Fair]
[Around 500 staff and faculty attended IT's Get Upgrade Ready event on January 7th in the Great Hall, where t-shirts were provided, and attendees listened to Upgrade presenters. To see more pictures and Tweets from the event, search #upgradeready.]
We will equip existing helplines and call centers with information and training to answer your questions during Cutover and Go Live. Behind the scenes, we continue testing and refining the systems, and releasing relevant information as it becomes available. Please make sure you are preparing by checking out training on the Training & Education page.
