  1. What should every PeopleSoft customer do to run their PeopleSoft systems effectively in 2023?

This section highlights various ways through which a  PeopleSoft customer can run their PeopleSoft systems effectively, such as updating PeopleSoft systems on a regular cadence, and using recent tools like the new PUM Automated Updates feature (PAU). Other tips include using Fluid technology, moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and proactively engaging with Oracle Support. New capabilities like running 'Analyzers' is also discussed. YouTube videos and similar resources are also highlighted as valuable tools for customers to learn more about PeopleSoft.


  1. What’s the best way to avoid running PeopleSoft ‘the old way’?

According to the experts in this episode, there are broadly 2 things you can do to improve the way you use PeopleSoft. Firstly avoid customizations and secondly to modernize the user experience. Avoid unnecessary customizations with tools like Drop Zones, Event Mapping, and Page and Field Configurator. One of the most recent and powerful ways to improve the user experience is to deploy Global Search for both navigation and content search, thereby eliminating clicks through a menu structure, leading to increased efficiency and end-user engagement.
