PeopleSoft Platform Benefits from Major Upgrades

More than 3,000 Oracle application users from around the world attended the recent Alliance 2013 conference, and Oracle took advantage of the setting to unveil Oracle’s PeopleSoft 9.2. The new release demonstrates the company’s continuing commitment to the PeopleSoft platform, with more than 1,000 new features and enhancements.

Oracle also released a new version of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, its leading student management system and alumni development solution for higher education.

PeopleSoft Becomes Easier to Use
These latest releases feature a new user interface that fundamentally changes how users interact with PeopleSoft applications, says Marc Weintraub, product strategy director for PeopleSoft. The addition of Oracle Secure Enterprise Search not only delivers results, but enables users to act on them. “For example, if the search results display a list of employees, managers can select individuals to adjust their hours or perform other relevant functions,” he explains.

The solution also visualizes common business processes to help individuals navigate multistep activities. “We’ve made it intuitive for people to walk through processes that are important but may not be something they do every day,” Weintraub says.

The platform also provides the personalizable WorkCenter feature, which consist of preconfigured collections of common user tasks presented in a command center format. Among them is the Grants WorkCenter, targeted at helping higher education institutions manage funding activities.

New Innovations in PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
PeopleSoft Campus Solutions provides a range of new capabilities and architectural features to promote successful student outcomes. In addition to a traditional on-premises version, Oracle is also making the solution available in an on-demand service model (see the related story in this newsletter, “Managed Cloud Services Option Gives Schools An Attractive New Choice for PeopleSoft Campus Solutions”).

The latest innovations enhance three key areas.

  • Architectural advancements. Web services and APIs now make it easier for schools to share data across internal systems. For example, schools can exchange relevant data about students, staff, and facilities between PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and learning management and HR applications.
  • Productivity tools. The common attribute framework enables schools to add fields to existing records without having to customize the application. This allows institutions to tailor attributes in individual records to meet local requirements and maintain those changes even after implementing new updates to the core solution.
  • Student success. Program enrollment capabilities let institutions create and track education plans for each student that show the entire sequence of courses required to meet individual academic goals. The plans aid students when determining their courses of study and help schools better plan and schedule resources.
