Top 5 Enhancements Since PeopleSoft 9.2 (Financials)


Between November of 2009 and February  of 2013 there were exactly zero enhancements released for PeopleSoft Financials customers. 


With the release of PeopleSoft 9.2 in March 2013, PeopleSoft replaced its upgrade process with an update process.   In Release 9.2 there are no more upgrades, but there are new features. Our Financials functional consultants recently selected these enhancements as the Top 5 since 9.2 was released.

PeopleSoft RECONNECT 2017

Dan Maude

Chicago is My Kind of Town, and once again, there have been connections reconnected. Once again, about 500 people attended RECONNECT 2017, the Quest User Group's annual deep-dive PeopleSoft only conference. 

This is always a fine conference for PeopleSoft Enterprise customers, as it is focused and its' moderate size does lead toward more sharing and networking than the giant conferences Oracle has (and PeopleSoft used to have). 

At the same time though, this conference is a Cryan' Shames. The Sugar and Spice of many sessions was offset by the Kind of a Drag almost total silence on the real actual future and the Cloud. Outside of PeopleSoft developers and management there was zero Oracle presence and things between PeopleSoft customers and Oracle seem more disconnected than ever.

Selective Adoption Fundamentals

Roger Dial

Adjusting PeopleSoft 9.2 Maintenance 

For more than two decades, PeopleSoft followed the industry standard for how to deliver new application functionality to customers. The periodic delivery of massive application upgrades which were difficult and costly to apply was a model which customers had no choice but to accept. Internally, IT Departments and Line of Business system owners took up battle positions over upgrade scheduling. IT, which controlled the resources, would hold out for as long as possible to avoid committing time and money to an arduous PeopleSoft upgrade while Business owners would track and monitor fixes and enhancements delivered in new releases to build a business case in their favor.

PeopleSoft Update Manager and PeopleSoft Testing

Dan Maude

Selective Adoption and PeopleSoft Testing

As a technology, the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) has proven to be solid and reliable for Financials and HCM, and is now also available with Campus Solutions. PUM does streamline the maintenance process, and makes it easier for customers to stay current, (or get current regardless of prior release levels). And, no more upgrades.

But PUM does not simply automate the old patch, bundle, maintenance pack update process. New functionality and features are co-mingled with traditional fixes and updates. Again, this delivery of new features has worked well from a technical perspective. Selective Adoption pick the features (and fixes) you want, when you want them – changes the application management process. Somebody from the business has to work with development and together decide what updates to include, and when. 

This requires an "attitude change" for most organizations, and probably more collaboration. Changes are smaller (than an upgrade), but more frequent. New images  there have been 17 for Financials in the last two and a half years – require a quicker pace, and may change roles in the supporting organization.
