10 Innovations in PeopleSoft 9.2 - #2 Lower TCO With The Peoplesoft Update Manager

With the new PeopleSoft Update Manager in PeopleSoft 9.2 the way you manage updates to your PeopleSoft systems puts you in control of all changes on your schedule.   You can selectively apply patches with reduced time, effort, and cost.    Bundles and Maintenance Packs are no longer used.      Instead, a tailored custom package is automatically generated based on the parameters you select from the latest PeopleSoft source image.   You have access to all updates from Oracle on a cumulative basis and can select and search for specific updates such as new features, legal and regulatory changes, or a patch related to a specific issue, process or object.    Any prerequisites are automatically identified.  The  process of generating a change package is enabled through a new wizard with easy to follow steps and options.     As changes are introduced to your test environment the PeopleSoft Test Framework provides a closed loop process to run regression tests scripts against your changes.  For a quick overview of the PeopleSoft Update Manager check out the Video Feature Overview here:

Manager Self Service at your Fingertips

Last week we released new and improved Manager Self Service capabilities in PeopleSoft HCM 9.1. We delivered a new Manager Dashboard, streamlined many Manager Self Service transactions, provided new Pivot Grid capabilities, and implemented one-click Related Actions accessible from multiple places – all with the goal of improving every Manager’s self service experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Manager Dashboard

These new capabilities have the potential to significantly impact an organization’s bottom line, and here is why.

Increased Efficiency

The Manager Dashboard provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for your Managers with all of the key data they need consolidated into a single view. Alerts notifying managers of important tasks are immediately viewable and actionable. Administrators can configure the dashboard to include the most important pagelets needed for their organization, and Managers can personalize it to fit within their personal way of conducting their tasks. The Related Actions feature further improves the ease with which Managers get their work done by providing one-click access to Manager Self Service transactions. 

Increased Job Satisfaction

The streamlined Manager transactions, related actions, and the new Manager Dashboard provide an enhanced user experience. Managers are able to quickly get in, get the information they need, complete their transactions, and get out. Managers can spend their time focusing on getting the business results they need instead of their day to day HR tasks.

Enhanced Decision Support

Administrators can ensure the information and analytics they want their Managers to use are available from the Manager Dashboard, establishing best business practices. Additional pivot grids relevant to your own organization can be added to the Manager Dashboard. With this easy access to the relevant information in an easily understood format, Managers can make the right business decisions needed to improve their team and their team’s productivity.
