HR/SIS Upgrade Underway!

The HR/SIS Upgrade began on Friday, July 4 and will continue until the morning of Thursday, July 10.

This is a huge project. It affects most everyone on campus – most people use PeopleSoft without realizing it. For example, Employee Self Service (ESS) uses PeopleSoft to enable faculty and staff to manage their personal information, including payroll preferences, contact information and Open Enrollment elections. The re-implementation will enhance the system, offering a new look and making it more user-friendly. You’ll have the same capabilities, though the steps to make updates may change.

For background on the project, check out the previous blog post by Senior Director of Infrastructure Dave Kieffer.
