Streamline Data Sharing Between Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and PeopleSoft Human Capital Management

In a move to streamline the sharing of critical student, faculty, and staff information, colleges and universities are taking advantage of new, out-of-the-box integrations between Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management and PeopleSoft Campus Solutions.

With secure integrations, higher education institutions can share core personal data between the two applications, even in cases when individuals serve multiple roles within the institution—a student who also works part-time for a college, for example.

The new integration is available for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0 and PeopleSoft Human Resources 9.0/ 9.1. Oracle included the integration in its latest feature pack. Feature packs make new capabilities available to users of PeopleSoft applications in regular incremental releases that come between major upgrades of the platform.

This is the second in a series of moves by Oracle to simplify data sharing with PeopleSoft Campus Solutions (see the related story, “Cut the Costs of Linking Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and Blackboard Learn”).

Real-World Benefits

An early beneficiary is Kansas City’s Metropolitan Community College, which completed the integration between PeopleSoft Human Resources 9.1 and PeopleSoft Campus Solutions last fall. The college sought to create a single, trusted record for its 21,000 students and 3,000 employees. The school now maintains most personal data in PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and syncs student, faculty, and staff information with PeopleSoft Human Resources.

“We found that installing the integration for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions to PeopleSoft Human Resources was relatively straightforward. Now the data flows virtually seamlessly,” says Patricia Amick, director of administrative systems and management services at the college.

Palomar College, a two-year community college in California’s San Diego county, integrated the applications during its upgrade to PeopleSoft Human Resources 9.1. Because Palomar stores records of employees in the student database, and vice versa, it uses the integration to maintain a single record for each person.

The close ties between the programs also minimize the changes its employees faced as they began using new PeopleSoft Human Resources 9.1 capabilities. The result: many users didn’t realize a significant architectural change had taken place, according to Don Sullins, the college’s IS director.
