PeopleSoft 9.2 Upgrade Project Overview


PROJECT GOALS & DESCRIPTION

The focus of the PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade project is to continue improving services to the University community and maintain our long-term investment in the Oracle PeopleSoft administrative suite.  

UVM purchased the PeopleSoft administrative suite including the Financials, Human Resources and EPM systems in 2004.  Given the constant demand for system change based on regulation changes and demand for new services, as well as increased speed of technological changes, this software is constantly updated.  This means that continuous updates to our production systems must be made, and major upgrades which provide new functionality, performance and technology updates will generally need to occur every few years. This should be looked at as the new state of affairs; software updates will continually be released and we will need to apply them in order to stay current.

 UVM must upgrade to maintain support and to have an upgrade path to the future Oracle/PeopleSoft versions. The upgrade will also put us in a position to be able to leverage new and improved functionality within the PeopleSoft software.

ACCEPTANCE / SUCCESS CRITERIA

 
We will know that we have been successful if each system is upgraded to PeopleSoft version 9.2 and those who use the software are able to conduct their work without interruption or slowdown. The number of calls for support and footprints should not increase over our current volume after an initial period of adjustment time of two months.
