We’re excited to have upgraded the university to the newest versions of the PeopleSoft Human Resources (HR) and Student Information System (SIS). These new versions of our HR, Payroll and Student applications are now being used across the enterprise by the Office of Human Resources (OHR), Payroll, Enrollment Services and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, as well as many other colleges and departments.
The HR/SIS Upgrade began on Friday, July 4 and will continue until the morning of Thursday, July 10.
It’s challenging to strike the right balance when discussing the upgrade to our HR and SIS systems—we don’t want the project to be understated nor do we want it to be overblown. It’s a disservice to the hard work of our staff members to understate it, considering all the time and effort being put into making programming changes and getting users ready, not to mention the work by the users themselves to adjust processes for the coming changes.
We recently made the decision to move the implementation of the HR/SIS Upgrade project from Memorial Day weekend to the Fourth of July holiday weekend, July 4-9. This has always been our planned contingency date if we felt the Memorial Day go-live had too many risks.
