Marc Weintraub recently interviewed David Bain about the new changes in technology for PeopleSoft regarding mobility and the new Fluid UI.

After the introduction, 3G PeopleSoft was among the first application vendors to release an application that was native: iReceipts. PeopleSoft was again the first to release an application on the ADF Framework: Mobile Inventory Management. Again, PeopleSoft was the first to build with the Mobile application framework, the mobile self-services Campus Solution.

Then, PeopleSoft delivered on 9.1 a series of mobile applications using PeopleSoft technology:

David Bain explained that the mobile products were built with the technology available at the time, but the PeopleSoft team wanted to include within PeopleTools an easy-to- use technology for organizations. Including this Fluid UI technology within the PeopleSoft toolset will shorten the lifecycle costs for customers. The customers will then be able to use the same skills to administer and deploy PeopleSoft for Mobile applications, thus reducing the complexity.

The new fluid UI will be delivered to customers in 9.2 through the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM). PUM will help customers uptake any features or enhancements without having to go through a major upgrade. The application, with the Fluid UI, will be responsive and optimized on the technology they are running on.  A series of applications will be delivered for HR (Manager Self-Service Homepage, My Team view and Analytics approval, etc.) and Finance (Travel Authorization, Employee Status Reporting, Supplier watch list, etc.).

The new PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (UI) is coming to PeopleTools 8.54! Fluid UI enables the delivery of PeopleSoft applications in a modern, intuitive and personalizable way across multiple devices (i.e. tablets, smart phones and desktops). Regardless of operating system, the new Fluid UI is using the latest state-of-the-art technologies, such as HTML5 and CCS3, and incorporates them into the PeopleTools. Fluid UI will be able to detect what type of mobile device users are accessing the application from (i.e. tablet, mobile) and will leverage location, pictures and more!

This new UI will be responsive to a device’s form factor. This means that the application will be optimized to the device size and render the information in a dynamic manner.

During the Collaborate and Alliance roadshows earlier this year, the new Fluid UI was shown off by Paco Aubrejuan, Senior Vice President of Development for Oracle's PeopleSoft product line and Jeff Robbins, Oracle Senior Director, PeopleTools Strategy. Robbins was able to demonstrate several times how PeopleSoft is truly a state-of-the-art solution and that PeopleTools drives PeopleSoft innovation.
