Training for PeopleTools 8.54

The PeopleTools 8.54 release incorporates a number of compelling features for delivering, managing and maintaining PeopleSoft applications. Included among these are the introduction of the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface, as well as key enhancements to Update Manager and Pivot Grids.

The PeopleSoft team created the following training to help you learn about and gain experience with these technologies.

PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface

The 8.54 release introduces the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface. Designed as a significant improvement over the PeopleSoft "classic" user interface, the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface moves away from pixel-perfect page layout and provides greater flexibility with the enhanced use of cascading style sheets, HTML5 and JavaScript. PeopleSoft application fluid pages scale from large screen devices, such as laptops and desktops, to the reduced viewing space of tablets and smartphones.

Recommended Training

PeopleSoft Update Manager

The PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) tool, which was introduced with the PeopleSoft 9.2 application releases, streamlined the process of applying updates to your PeopleSoft applications. PeopleTools 8.54 provides new features that provide the ability for the source and target PeopleSoft systems to be on different PeopleTools versions. With that capability, customers on an 8.53 release of PeopleTools can take full advantage of the new 8.54 Update Manager features without going through a tools upgrade.

This course walks you through the entire process to get you up an running quickly.

Pivot Grids

Pivot Grids support operational dashboard reporting within the PeopleSoft framework to provide a pivot table and chart representation of data. Pivot Grids enable users to see different views of data. Within Peopletools 8.54 this important technology has been further enhanced to become an integral element of the PeopleSoft user experience.

Recommended Training

  • PeopleSoft Pivot Grid Rel 8.54 (2-day course): Learn how to create Pivot Grid models using PeopleSoft queries and components as the data sources. Also learn how to view and manipulate pivot grids and charts in the classic view and fluid view, add related actions to pivot grid models, incorporate pivot grid pagelets into your applications, such as a homepage or dashboard, and perform pivot grid administrative tasks.

As enterprises continue to migrate and adopt Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, we continue to see strong demand for training. Courses are available in both traditional classroom and our popular online Live Virtual Class formats.

Here are some key training opportunities you may want to consider.

Online Patching

One of the most significant new features of Oracle E-Business Suite Rel 12.2 is 'Online Patching'. This allows you to apply patches while the system is still running, which reduces the patching and maintenance downtime.

Application Administration

System administrators need to understand the concepts and functions  critical to their job role as it pertains to your applications. The following course covers implementing and managing the Oracle E-Business Suite.

Oracle Workflow

Oracle Workflow Manager allows system administrators to define and manage business processes. You can route relevant information to decision makers, automate processes, deliver electronic notifications to users in a given workflow, and monitor your processes as they are implemented.  The following course will teach you how to design, administer, and manage workflow processes.

Oracle Financials

Training for the Oracle E-Business Suite Financial Management is designed to help implementers and end users set up, use, and manage their financial applications.  The following course provides a deep dive into implementation considerations for setting up and using Oracle Subledger Accounting. You'll walk away with the knowledge to create and translate journal entries to the General Ledger.

The next course is for those who need to know how to set up and use Oracle Receivables to manage receivables processing.

Order Management

If you're looking to learn how to perform the steps to setup Oracle Inventory in support of Oracle Order Management, including how to create subinventories, units of measure and items, then you should take the following course.
