City of San Jose Saves Money & Time with Sierra-Cedar’s Upgrade Lab for Oracle’s PeopleSoft HCM Upgrade

As support for HRMS 8.0 SP1 was coming to an end, the City of San Jose was ready to take advantage of the latest functionality and platforms offered by HCM 8.9—such as the various delivered eApps. To complete the upgrade on time and on budget, the city sought the help of an experienced application management services provider.

Sierra-Cedar took a blended upgrade approach to the application upgrade, using both traditional onsite consultants for functional tasks and the CMS lab for the technical portion of the upgrade. As a result, the city achieved cost and time savings, reduce technical infrastructure burden, and obtain the high level of knowledge transfer and training it desired.

Key Project Highlights:

  • Project management, technical and functional consulting for PeopleSoft upgrade from HRMS 8.0 to HCM 8.9 using Sierra-Cedar’s CMS Upgrade Lab
  • Training through Oracle’s PeopleSoft UPK tool
