Deeper analytical insight and agility is at the forefront of growth strategy for companies across all industries. However, the complexity of defining the appropriate path to leverage the benefits of the Cloud to gain meaningful insight from your data can be overwhelming.
If you’ve made the move to Fluid, the rest of this blog will just make you smug. For those who haven’t moved to the latest PeopleSoft user interface, let me provide you with both practical reasons and financial reasons on why you’d want to update your PeopleSoft to a modern user interface (UI).
Recently, I met with Marc Weintraub from Oracle to discuss some ideas that may not be crystal clear to PeopleSoft customers or the public at large. At the top of our list was, “What did Oracle mean when it said, ‘Oracle is fully committed to supporting and investing in its PeopleSoft solutions indefinitely’?”1 That’s a long time—“indefinitely.” Read more
There is some uncertainty about what it means to move PeopleSoft “to the Cloud.” The simplest description is running your PeopleSoft (PSoft) system outside of your facility—in someone else’s facility. There are many options available. There are options regarding what you are responsible for and what the vendor is responsible for (e.g., patching SW, security, where/what country you want the facility, among many others). I see PeopleSoft in the Cloud as really how ERP services were provided in the past and how ERP services can be provided now—moving from the physical data center you grew up with to a more effective environment in the Cloud.

Co-presenting with Earl Parks from Gallaudet University[i], the premier U.S. school for the deaf, was the highlight of my week at Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) 2016. Gallaudet was a major player in passing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1980, which led to the adoption of universal design[ii], helping a great diversity of people, including me. The OOW presentation covered Gallaudet’s upgrade to PeopleSoft (PS) 9.2 and its deployment of the PS Fluid User Interface (UI). Read more
Built for higher education from the ground up, Student Cloud is being designed in tandem with customers to deliver a comprehensive student system solution. Student Cloud is the umbrella name for all six pieces of Student Cloud: Student Engagement, Student Recruiting, Student Support, Student Management, Advancement and Financial Aid. Each piece may be purchased and used independently or in any combination as Oracle is supporting co-existence strategies and recognizes that Cloud technology is about meeting transformative university objectives vs. a “rip and replace” technology change. The pieces of Student Cloud are being released over time with all but Student Management and Financial Aid available now. Read more
PUM: for the uninitiated, this acronym might not create a great deal of excitement, but wait until you use it. PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) has been described as “the tool that breaks up a large upgrade into small, easy-to-apply updates.” One user describes PUM as “a search tool to find applicable patches.” Another says, “PUM simplifies maintenance”—and it really does!
I don’t have a blog for today where I share information. I have an “ask” for all of you. I’ll be at Oracle OpenWorld next week attending sessions, and talking with Oracle representatives. What questions do you have about PeopleSoft? I’m looking for you to send me questions on PeopleSoft functional, technical, and strategic areas. I’ll ask, research, and find answers for you. Just send me your questions this week. If your question is about PeopleSoft/Fusion co-existing, that’s a fair area and I’ll include it. Thanks in advance. This will be a great learning opportunity for us all.
The easiest way to email your questions is to click on this link, and I’ll do my best to find an answer to your question(s): PS9.2@Sierra-Cedar.com.
