4 Objectives ●Analyze the deltas between current Business processes and version 9.2. –Identify Gaps –Confirm Inventory of Interfaces, Customizations and Reports. ●Facilitate the next stage – Design and Configuration ●A list of potential post upgrade improvements requiring new or changed configuration and business process that cannot be implemented now due to upgrade constraints.
6 Global Enhancements ●Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) – Provides global search capabilities that enables the user to take action from search results without navigating through the menus thereby increasing productivity –SES is implemented through the PeopleSoft Search Framework.

Approvals are at the line level (asset) and the approver does not need to be defined as an asset owner to access the Approve Disposals component. Access can be restricted to specific users via permission lists.
