Let the vendor demos begin! (on Monday, that is)

The first round of vendor demos for ctcLink starts Monday! Oracle is up first and they are proposing their own (Oracle PeopleSoft) suite of administrative software products and an Oracle team that would do the work of implementing the new systems alongside the ctcLink core project team.

More than 100 evaluators–who volunteered and have been involved in the process for several months–will be attending the live demonstrations.

As we reported here last week, college and SBCTC staff are welcome to tune in to the demos via live streaming video. Your ctcLink college team members have all the details, so check in with one of them if you are interested. If you aren’t sure who is on your ctcLink team, go to the ctcLink College Resources webpage (available to CTC and SBCTC staff only) and click on the ctcLink College Teams roster near the bottom of the page.

You will also be invited to give your feedback through a short, online survey.

Here is an overview of the ctcLink Vendor Demo Schedule for all three weeks. If you have a certain area of interest, you can see which days that particular module will be covered. Unfortunately, this is as specific as we can get with the schedule. We know the basic topic for each day, but we don’t know in which order the vendor will demonstrate specific functionalities. But, ctcLink College Teams have access to some additional information that may be helpful in choosing when to watch the demos based on your area of interest.

If you have additional questions, check in with one of your ctcLink college team members.

Thanks in advance for your interest and participation!
