The University of Wisconsin System Boosts Efficiencies and Streamlines Processes with its Upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2

The University of Wisconsin System (UW System) engaged Sierra-Cedar to lead the upgrade of its Shared Financials System (SFS) applications (Financials and Supply Chain) from PeopleSoft 9.1 to 9.2. SFS is used to process, track, and report on all financial transactions across the UW System. The project’s goal was to improve the existing PeopleSoft system by increasing use of delivered functionality, streamlining current business processes, and reevaluating and reducing existing customizations.

Key Project Highlights:

  • Improved process efficiencies, laying a solid foundation for UW System’s upcoming move to the Cloud.
  • Reduced the number of UW System customizations, streamlining application maintenance.
  • Implemented delivered Fluid functionality such as Dashboards, Work Centers and Mobile Capabilities, enabling students and faculty to take advantage of many self-service features.
  • Aligned with Oracle’s PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) Quarterly Update cycle, eliminating the need for future upgrades.
