The value of an upgrade is clearly not the same as the initial implementation, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a painful or costly endeavor. We offer a myriad of upgrade choices that are right for you.
Historically a PeopleSoft system upgrade was often deemed a necessary evil, bringing little to no value to an organization, and done to maintain vendor support.
PeopleSoft 9.2 is "the last upgrade." Nearly two dozen updates have been provided to customers since the 9.2 release. Customers have substantial flexibility in selecting what and when to update, And while the images of each update are cumulative, a good practice is to stay within a year or two of the latest image.
Customers upgrading to 9.2 will see a more modern application with substantial new features over 9.1 or earlier releases.
We can work with you within your investment parameters to make an upgrade cost-effective and productive, whether we perform the end-to-end process or work with you to supplement your internal activities. We can also analyze the existing configuration to ensure you are getting the most out of your initial investment.
Organizations who have been on 9.2 for a while, but have lagged in embracing regular, frequent updates, may want Beacon to advise on and set up various new features in the latest release.
Customers on a solid, well designed PeopleSoft 9.2 platform may decide to stay. Organizations who plan on remaining on PeopleSoft may benefit from some combination of new feature deployment along with reconfiguration of some "pain points." We can assess and perhaps optimize your current system, or help you with a longer-term plan for your business applications.
