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.
Tag: HR/SIS PeopleSoft upgrade
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.
IT Community members already know that over Memorial Day weekend we will upgrade the current Human Resources (HR) and Student Information Systems (SIS) from PeopleSoft version 8.9 to the latest software available from our vendor, HR 9.2 .As you would expect, these changes will affect the data that many of our organizations rely on for operational processing and strategic planning. Redevelopment and testing of the queries and reports that use this data will be necessary. The project team will be taking steps to reduce the risk of exposure or loss of university data by improving access security. These efforts may result in technology or connection changes for you if you are a data user, but the changes are not on the critical path for this project. We are approaching this effort unit by unit, beginning with the units that use SIS and HR data the most (e.g., Enrollment Services and Undergraduate Education and the Office of Human Resources). We will make changes in other units once a preferred solution is identified.
It’s finally happening in 2014 -- at the end of May, to be precise. That’s when a brand new version of our HR, Payroll and Student PeopleSoft applications will be available to college and department users in OHR, Payroll, Enrollment Services and the Wexner Medical Center.
