Teams within the Office of the Chief Information Officer and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are collaborating on a project to update the current PeopleSoft Financials System infrastructure (including the eMaterials System), by moving away from outdated physical machines to virtual machines. This post is intended to supply interested parties in the university community with awareness and understanding.
By collaborating with Oracle, we discovered they offer several options to work together more effectively, including a wealth of online resources for users to access when they need help. Since that discussion, Oracle has provided a training session to all of our OCIO teams on best practices, and their continued support is already starting to make a positive difference in the solutions we provide to our customers.
Oracle provides the following tips for getting the most out of their products (which power BuckIQ and PeopleSoft applications), as well as a full list of resources located on their blog.
The OCIO will be rolling out a new business intelligence initiative to bring all of Ohio State together in a One University vision, allowing every college and business unit to reach beyond the data analysis they have today. BuckIQ will deliver easy access to user-designed and pre-designed reports, data presentation that is more easily understood through a business lens, and familiar language for easier adaptation to new systems and tools.
So what is BuckIQ?
