PeopleSoft Reporting and Analytics

PeopleSoft has always offered powerful and versatile reporting capabilities with several options. Contemporary reporting is changing, however. PeopleSoft now provides reporting and analytic options that make reporting a strategic part of enterprise business processes. In fact, now reporting can be embedded directly into business process flows as an integral part of the user interface. With this cutting edge approach, users generate reports in context, within transactions, where the data can be used for better decision support and the data is fresh and secure.

Chief among these exciting PeopleSoft reporting capabilities are Simplified Analytics. Simplified analytics are new reporting features that are easy to use and that put power in the hands of end users and business experts. Functional users don’t have to rely on technical professionals to generate the reports they need. With these tools, data can be sliced and diced as required, as well visualized in different ways to gain greater understanding of the information presented.

Of course enterprises will still need conventional reports for activities such as Period Close and other regulatory reporting. In those cases, customers can employ the powerful, integrated BI Publisher. In addition, PeopleSoft continues to support PS Query, nVision, and SQR. Process Scheduler is available for scheduling and distributing reports.
