Don't Just Go to 9.2: Transform!

To upgrade or not to upgrade…that is always the question. At Ataway, we know and share in your dilemmas, whether they are technical or functional. We know that an upgrade is always a big decision to make as you try to reconcile cost, improve productivity and stay current on a supported release.

PeopleSoft 9.2 (FSCM, HR and Payroll) is not your usual upgrade, in many respects, as it is a true game changer. The first and most important aspect to consider is that 9.2 will be the last upgrade you will need. The current Oracle roadmap for PeopleSoft runs until 2022 (at least). All new features, fixes, etc., will be delivered through the PeopleSoft Update Manager rather than through the traditional upgrade model. “Customers can now select the feature they need and adopt them at their own pace. PeopleSoft Update Manager is a game changer,” says the General Manager of PeopleSoft Applications Development, Paco Aubrejuan.

A real game changer indeed! It is like having the features of a cloud application without the hassle. You can roll out or opt out of features without pain or disruption of an upgrade, keeping full control of your environments and features at a minimal cost. There will be no more costly upgrades. This will be the last one!

PeopleSoft 9.2 is a real game changer. It is a game changer that will transform the way you think about your PeopleSoft ERP—a more agile, less expensive option, resulting in higher productivity and user satisfaction.

Benefits of Implementing PeopleSoft 9.2

PeopleSoft Update Manager is a lifecycle management process for PeopleSoft 9.2 customers to use for all their application maintenance needs. Customers can now determine which maintenance to apply and when to apply it, as well as the ability to select a single change package to keep the application current. With 9.2, you no longer need to upgrade in order to stay current at all times.

PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface /Mobility enables transactions to be displayed on any device (mobile tablet, laptop), allowing the user to make informed decision anywhere. Customers using these features reported productivity gain of 45% (as it required less training and fostered greater end-user adoption).

WorkCenters enable users to be more effective and efficient by providing the ability to see and manage work on a single page. Customers reported a productivity gain of 30% by leveraging the WorkCenter.

Customer Success Story

A large chain of grocery stores wanted to upgrade from PeopleSoft 8.9 to 9.2 in order to stay current and leverage new functionalities to streamline the business process. The company selected Ataway to do the Financial and HCM upgrade.

Solutions

During the analysis and design phase, Ataway’s team of experts evaluated the new features to be incorporated into the upgrade to optimize customer business processes and minimize the upgrade risk. The Ataway team took full advantage of the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) to uptake functionalities and fixes during the implementation process as well as to perform knowledge. Ataway helped the customer to transform with PeopleSoft 9.2 by implementing Cash and Deal Management to automate the bank reconciliation process and to get cash visibility with the cash position worksheet.

Achievements & Outcome

The project was delivered in 8 months for PeopleSoft FMS and 7 months for PeopleSoft HCM. The customer reduced its customizations, gained new functionalities and automated its business process, reducing operating costs. Ataway delivered a successful go-live on time and within budget, leveraging technologies for business transformation.
