33 What do we want to Mobilize?
2009 ?

34 TCU Mobile

35 What do we want to mobilize?
What did we want to mobilize in 2009? What TerriblyClever told us we wanted to mobilize. The University’s presence Simply a home in the app store world. Directory, Athletics, News, Events, Map, Classes, Videos Helped us get ahead of the curve briefly Put us on the map with Stanford and Duke. Introduced the concept of the suite approach to mobile phones

36 What do we want to Mobilize?
2013 Everything

37 What do we want to Mobilize?
Business interactions (ERP) Academic interactions (LMS) Basic information (TCU Mobile) Athletics Events Radio Station Dining Hall Menus Shuttle information/Maps What did people want? The first two things, what did we give them? Everything else!

40 Stony Brook University
Situated on 1,000 wooded acres on the north shore of Long Island Undergraduate students: 16,342 Total students: 24,500 More than 1,900 faculty More than 12,000 total employees

41 PeopleSoft Background
PeopleTools 8.50 Campus Solutions 9.0 HCM 9.0 Heavy use of PeopleSoft Portal Customized Bolt-ons: What Do I Owe Student communications-focused customizations

42 Requirements User experience is critical
Navigation Customizations (action and messaging center) Detailed analysis of each page Focus on key processes in initial phase Grades, Schedule, Messages, To-Do’s, Holds Grey Heller Solutions, Proprietary and Confidential

43 Common Mobile Use Cases
Campus Solutions HR / Benefits Procurement Financials Administrative Access

44 User Interface Challenges

45 Mobile Devices are Different
Different screen sizes Phone / Tablet / in-between Portrait / Landscape Real Estate is critical  Zooming and scrolling right/left decreases productivity Fingertips are only means of input

46 Security / Support Challenges

47 Security Authentication Protecting Application Data and processes
Data on device? Restricting access based on location or device (device not security) Protecting your network Infrastructure Logging and Auditing Security Administration

48 Supporting Mobile End-user Support LifeCycle Support
Troubleshooting Issues Training LifeCycle Support Upgrades Customizations Testing It’s all about the architecture

49 Managing a Mobile Project

50 Project Management Considerations
How will mobile devices connect to your PeopleSoft Development Environment? What are your wifi access policies? Will you need to provide access to the public internet? How do you roll mobile out to your users? Phased vs. Big Bang How do you gather sufficient user feedback? Surveys

51 GreyHeller Implementation Methodology
Plan for several “Quick wins” Avoid waterfall development model  involve end-users early in the process Day 1 – Review mobile UI immediately Iterate through configuration changes with continual user review Split implementation into 2 parallel paths User Interface Infrastructure and Security Load Balancer / Proxy Server Soft Launch Student Focus Groups & Surveys

52 Current State of ERP Mobile highlights shortcomings ERP Software
Usability Flexibility Adaptability Security ERP is too expensive End-user productivity Implementation Keeping current Administration Technology is evolving rapidly

53 Defaulting and Validation
The Future PeopleSoft Navigation Presentation Interactivity Defaulting and Validation Process Flow Security and Auditing Evolve both desktop and mobile user experience Responsive Simplify Streamline Compel Eliminate 90% of customizations Control and secure Use existing system as starting point

54 Questions For more info and a copy of this presentation:

55 History of Mobile 2000 PeopleSoft company directory
WAP/WML 2002 Disconnected CRM Mobile Embedded DB2 2005 PeopleTools Mobile 2 Never Released 2010 Mobile Inventory Mobile Expenses iPhone Applications 2011 iPad Support 2000 PeopleSoft company directory Used wap/wml as underlying technology WAP is wireless access protocol, WML is wireless markup language Generated by iscripts in psft Provided way to look up employee info through phone Never used by any customer no formal support was ever added to psft for building wap/wml apps 2002 Psft crm 8.4 ships with disconnected mobile support Driven by port of acquired vantive to ptools Key design point was to do something different than siebel (which needed 2gb install ) Ptools was extended to support mobile, but separate license was required approximately 50 customers ended up licensing standalone mobile Peopletools mobile embedded db2 as database and had simple page processor and could even run peoplecode. Component interfaces were given support for helping synchronize data. 2004/2005 Peopletools rewrites the mobile support completely. Targeted for pt 8.46, mobile version 2 is a full peopletools install with tuxedo, weblogic and sqlserver. Due to acquisition this never sees the light of day, although remnants can be found in ptools today (look for references to msf)

56 Future of Oracle Offerings
Strategy Re-think business processes with a mobile focus Create mobile versions of targeted transactions Q4 2012 iScript-based Application “stop-gaps” Q4 2013 PeopleTools 8.54 Mobile TBD ADF-Built versions of Campus Pages
