It is truly giving the functional teams the ability to deliver so many more automated workflows to our end users which will increase their efficiency in processing AP invoices, Treasury reconciliations, T&E reports. The new WorkCenter concept will allow us to reduce our customizations in half.” - Kathleen Kultys, AVP-Business Finance Manager Chubb Insurance (FMS/SCM customer testing) X “Release 9.2 is phenomenal, we don’t know if there are enough functional people to take in all features… WorkCenters are excellent and will make users more productive and reduce or eliminate customizations.” Unknown University of Louisville? (FMS/SCM customer testing) “WorkCenters in PeopleSoft 9.2 provides users with a single page that contains all of their work.   This new innovation will allow users to be more effective and efficient by the ability to see and manage their work on a single page.  WorkCenters include information users need to complete their tasks, truly making them a one-stop center for users.” - University of Louisville’s David Baugh, Director, Financial Systems X “The new PeopleSoft 9.2 release looks intuitive and simple to use.  We’d expect to see quick user adoption with minimal training.  We also see the opportunity to eliminate customizations based on the new functionality Oracle has delivered in PeopleSoft 9.2.” Cal State University System X “The implementation of Oracle’s PeopleSoft 9.2 will provide AARP with a platform that will allow for system consolidation savings, best in class processes, high power user interface that improves productivity and efficiency, increased financial data visibility and enhanced data integrity, “ said Robert Hagans, Jr, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at AARP.  X “We anticipate that features like pivot grids, enhanced mobile integration options as well as the improved functions and usability in several modules (e.g. Recruiting) will enable our HR users and employees to improve the overall experience with PeopleSoft 9.2. In conjunction with our Exadata/Exalogic infrastructure PeopleSoft 9.2 alongside its interaction-hub will deliver significant benefits for Daimler when it comes to user performance,” said XXX, XXX  at Daimler. X Searchability of items in ePro will make users love it Nationwide  (FMS/SCM customer testing) X “When looking at our PeopleSoft environment Scott & White Healthcare realized we had to make a decision.  Upgrade from 8.9 to 9.1 and keep PeopleSoft as the system of record while implementing a best of breed Talent suite, or move into the future with PeopleSoft HCM 9.2.  After seeing previews of PeopleSoft 9.2 at Open World the decision was made clear.  PeopleSoft 9.2 brought overall usability, Recruiting ,and other Talent Management functions to the next level.  The move to upgrade to 9.2 will bring significant stability, reliability, and an improved user experience to the application.  Together with tools 8.53, Oracle’s Secure Enterprise Search,  and the PeopleSoft interaction-hub enhancements, our executives, managers, and employees will be able to get the right data at the right time.”  Jeremy Pelley, Director of Business Applications X And many PeopleTools Features that are changing the usage paradigm for PeopleSoft Applications

PeopleSoft Update Manager Future Plans

22 PeopleSoft Lifecycle Management PeopleSoft Update Manager
Change Packages Tailored to a Customer’s Unique Needs and Maintenance History Get Current Regardless of Prior Maintenance Level Apply Maintenance on Your Schedule Enables Maintenance Best Practices Single Change Package Streamlines Maintenance Process You create a package tailored to your needs. No more bundles or maintenance packs! Change package is tailored to YOUR environment – what you need to apply and what you already have. No longer a ‘one-size fits none’ bundle. Finer level of granularity when choosing what to patch; today, bundles are all or nothing. Customer decides how much to change. Only one change package to apply. Using Change Assistant to add in customizations to the customer change package generated using PUM from the PeopleSoft Image. You create a single custom change package based on your PUM selection. Impact analysis and project apply can be done once per patch cycle, as opposed to having to apply multiple changes packages downloaded from Oracle today New tools to further automate the process. PUM Tool calculates the dependencies based on the customer selection and includes those in the change package PUM Tool generates custom change package based on selection and what is already applied to customer environment Dependency calculations and impact analysis are done locally Patching on your (customer) schedule now ours (PeopleSoft) Get the full and current PeopleSoft image every time. Create custom change packages from your local copy of the PeopleSoft Image on your schedule. Dual track maintenance strategy makes staying current on the PeopleSoft Image quick and inexpensive. You can continue to plan proactive strategic updates but also quickly react to critical patching as needed. Customer can keep a current local copy of the VB to search for fixes and patches at any time, react more quickly to critical issues by searching the current image by object or bug ID. You can find patches specific to your use cases. Search for specific legislative and regulatory updates and have the system create a package specifically for those updates. PUM provides the tools to assist customer in identifying required or desired fixes and features and with analyzing the impact of patching those changes. New PUM tools allow you to search by specific PeopleSoft object or Bug ID. PUM feature to select all fixes to "get me current“ New metadata provides object level patch and search capability Across the board, reduced manual steps for patching. Change Package is custom for the customer request and consolidated so that each object is in the package only once regardless of how many fixes include that object or how long it has been since your last update. Reduced time and effort for Analysis and preparation, Patching, Verification. Analysis, customization, and verification needs doing only one time initially in your DEV environment. A custom change package created in DEV can then be applied to all your other environments. Get the full and current PeopleSoft image every time. The PeopleSoft Image (PI) is a rollup of patches delivered on a VirtualBox appliance that is downloaded from MOS No need to deploy and maintain separate demo environments. Use a copy of the PeopleSoft Image virtual machine. You search for the PI patch set in MOS You can still search MOS by bug number or product and find the PI containing your bug fix The VirtualBox image contains the actual applications maintenance database and file system and is on the current PeopleTools patch level You search within the PI using PUM for the fixes and features content In MOS, the “Bugs resolved by this Patch” section and readMe file contain all the Bugs or features delivered in the PI Consistent Processing with Today After PUM steps to leverage existing knowledge and training - Customer applies PUM custom CP to DEV first, then generates new CP from DEV including customizations. Apply to TEST for through testing, then to PROD - PUM continues to integrate with Change Assistant, Change Packager, and Environment Management Framework (EMF) - PUM is evolved from Update Gateway functionality to give you a familiar, yet enhanced, search experience - After generating package in PUM, the customer experience is the same using PeopleTools Change Assistant and Change Packager to apply the changes to their environments. - Dealing with customizations in the context of applying maintenance / features Other - Plan to deliver new image on a regular schedule - New features will be delivered the same way and can be selected and applied when customer desires - Customer experience is still very similar using PeopleTools Change Assistant and Change Packager. After creating your custom change package for patching using PUM, apply it to your DEV environment for customization, analysis, and validation. The, use the same Change Assistant and Change Packager tools you use today to generate your change package to apply to your other internal environments. - Using Usage Monitor, you (customer) will know what you use the most, and use metadata correlation to give them better information about the areas they use and the bugs impacting those areas Translations Delivered Differently – the image contains the English and ML version combined (though with exceptions) Documentation included with the VB download contains information about the contents of the image Information about what is fixed in the image release, including bug IDs and descriptions Cumulative across images Distinguishes between bug fixes, new features, and regulatory items Benefits / New Capabilities of PUM You create your initial change package Reduced the # of manual steps Change package is tailored to YOUR environment – what you need to apply and what you already have. No longer a ‘one-size fits none’ bundle. Only have to apply one package – regardless of what you need or how long it’s been since the last time you updated your database New capabilities to find bug fixes – ability to search by PeopleSoft object Ability to press the ‘make me current’ button (related to above) Something about translations – and that the image contains the English and ML version combined (though with exceptions) Using Usage Monitor, we’ll know what they use the most, and use metadata correlation to give them better information about the areas they use and the bugs impacting those areas Time to deploy is fast...from download to patching b/c VM Customer don’t need to be on specific PT releases!!!! Tailored to Each Customer Customer Specified Selections Customer Defined Fully Patched Images Use of PeopleSoft LCM Tools Inclusion of Customizations take changes regardless of current maintenance state take only changes you want or need single change package can get you current your schedule not ours more efficient streamlined process
