Is your organization still running PeopleSoft HR 8.9 or 9.0?
Would you like to leverage the latest PeopleSoft talent management capabilities without upgrading your core HR?
Good news! You can deploy PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 Career/Succession Planning, ePeformance, eCompensation Manager Desktop, and Recruiting Solutions using Oracle-delivered integrations without an HR upgrade. Using a proven integration model and architecture similar to our PeopleSoft ELM <> PeopleSoft HCM integration, organizations can implement any or all of the PeopleSoft talent management solutions integrated back to their core HR 8.9 or 9.0 system.
The reference and transaction data flow from an HCM 8.9 / 9.0 instance to an HCM 9.1 (or ELM 9.1) instance is easily enabled by using PeopleSoft Talent Management 9.1 to PeopleSoft HCM Integrations.
Because you’ll maintain your valuable data in a consistent PeopleSoft-to-PeopleSoft approach when using PeopleSoft Talent Management 9.1 to PeopleSoft HCM Integrations, the time and resources required to maintain your system data is reduced and simplified. Some of the benefits include:
- Consistent employee information.
When you view or access your employee information, you want it to always look and function the same. Third party systems might display or manipulate your employee information differently than your PeopleSoft HCM system currently does, and that could impact overall usability. With our PeopleSoft-to-PeopleSoft approach to Talent Management, your employee information remains consistent across all applications. With our delivered integrations, your current HCM installation remains your core HR data system of record.
- Integrated security.
Security of your valuable data is vital in today’s business environment. Because the HCM 8.9 / 9.0 and Talent Management 9.1 applications share a common and integrated security strategy, maintenance of your security is eased and tighter security of your data ensured.
- Ease in maintaining users and roles.
Granting your employees access to the appropriate applications and pages within those applications is easily handled in PeopleSoft applications through the assignment of users and roles. If you were to use a third party solution for your talent needs, you would have to maintain such access controls in two places, thereby increasing your workload and increasing the likelihood of out of sync access across the systems. Having a single application user and role structure minimizes your maintenance workload and ensures consistent application access across your entire system.
- Quality user experience.
Oracle has dedicated much of their recent development efforts to increasing the usability of our applications. As you know, a quality user experience results in increased productivity, happier employees, and reduced support costs.
- Standard application menus.
Part of your organization’s overall productivity includes as much standardization of menus, navigational structure and navigational steps as possible. PeopleSoft’s common navigation approach across all of our applications ensures that your employees will not be slowed down by constantly encountering unfamiliar navigational patterns to the important application pages they need to get their work done.
- Consolidated related content.
Since you’ll be managing your core HCM functions and your Talent Management functions with identical technology, the related content across databases can be consolidated and used in all applications.
In addition to the benefits that result from an all-PeopleSoft system, there is much value realized in using PeopleSoft Talent Management solutions:
- Cutting edge Talent Management functionality.
- Consistent use of technology that you already understand.
- Increased user adoption and reduced training costs due to application familiarity.
- Single system of record.
- Improved productivity with PeopleTools 8.5x.
I’ve saved the best for last, the PeopleSoft Talent Management 9.1 to HCM Integrations are delivered natively at no additional cost to Oracle’s PeopleSoft HCM customers and can be downloaded today from Oracle Support. Organizations need only have the product licenses for the Talent applications they are deploying. Oracle is constantly striving to assist our customers when they need to implement new and improved functionality while limiting implementation costs and time. The PeopleSoft Talent Management 9.1 to PeopleSoft HCM Integrations for our HCM customers do just that for those who need a robust and feature-rich Talent Management solution while staying with their current HCM implementation.
