Inundated with 'Cloud' and SaaS application messaging many PeopleSoft customers relegate Cloud technologies as solely a future consideration not applicable to their current licensed PeopleSoft applications. This session covers a number of Cloud and internet technologies and solutions customers can and should leverage today with their current PeopleSoft environments.
