Discover the Latest Enhancements IN PeopleSoft 9.2 Optimize Value with User Efficiency Internet-Like Search

Related Actions

Most enterprise software tasks are menu-driven. You navigate a menu to determine what action you want to take, and then search for the object you want to act on. Today’s business users expect an experience more like the internet, and need a faster, more sophisticated approach.

The adoption of the expanded Related Actions Framework delivered in PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 further streamlines navigation by enabling users to take contextually relevant actions on objects instead of using traditional menu paths.

With the incorporation of Oracle Secure Enterprise Search, users can search across multiple objects and instances using free text search terms and faceted results, enabling a more efficient, intuitive approach to navigating data. And Oracle Secure Enterprise Search supports multiple languages across a global scale, providing wider access to sensitive information while protecting data from unauthorized use.

Visualization Users can better navigate the system and execute activities faster and more easily with new visual guides such as Train Stops and Activity Guides. Train Stop visualizations lay out the steps of a process in a highly visual manner across the top of a work screen to help users better navigate self-service actions. And Activity Guides enable intuitive, step-by-step processes that simplify a user’s interaction with the system.

Protect Value with Cost Savings PeopleSoft Update Manager

Data Migration Workbench

There are many drivers that affect the TCO associated with enterprise software. Paramount among these is the cost to stay current with maintenance. PeopleSoft Update Manager helps reduce the time, effort, and cost of application maintenance. Customers can tailor updates to their specific needs, and apply only the patches and enhancements essential to them. Users can also get current on their own schedule, regardless of what updates they have or have not applied.

The Data Migration Workbench simplifies upgrades when migrating data from the staging to the production environment, by providing a secure and auditable approval workflow and validation of reference keys and data. Customers can move from manually rekeying migration data, which brings a high risk of human error, to automating the migration of data sets.
