Kovaion, proudly announces the successful roll-out of upgrade of PeopleSoft application to latest image (HCM 9.2.21 / PT 8.55.13) for one of its key customer. This is one of the challenging project wherein 23 countries were utilising multilingual HCM with tight central and local integrations. The significant objective of this project is to GO Mobile & STAY Current with the PeopleSoft Application and Tools version, to facilitate easy updates for new application features/fixes.

Business Objectives:

Mobile Adoption -Intuitive and responsive PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface introduced to access Application across all types of hand held devices.

Selective adoption – An approach to ease maintenance, facilitating controlled and strategic maintenance to the Application

Stay current on PeopleTools – Upgrading to the latest PeopleTools version, facilitating easy updates and fixes.

Reduced customization – Utilization of features delivered by latest updates of Oracle PeopleSoft, defying the need to customize the application.

This upgrade introduced some of the latest advances from the PeopleSoft Solution such as Improved User Experience – Fluid Enablement & Dashboards facilitating easy navigation using Nav-Bar, Reporting & Analytics, and Enhancements to Guided Self Service transactions.

Project Key Achievements:

Multi-lingual and Multi-country: Upgraded HR Application is used by 23 countries in 8 languages. Prime challenge was to ensure Retro-fitment of country- specific Customizations and up-stream/down-strream integrations to be intact.

Rapid Implementation: The entire project (from Feature Analysis to UAT Acceptance) was completed within three months.

Minimal Downtime: Since the HR Application is used by several countries, Upgrade had to be performed within the Business off-hours (of all countries in different time zones).

Key Success Factors:

Strategy: Kovaion planned an Agile approach fine-tuned for PeopleSoft Upgrade and PUM projects.
A TEAM: Kovaion involved a team of highly experienced PeopleSoft specialist including DBAs, Upgrade Specialist, Functional, Technical & Testing resources.

Change Management: Adoption of mobile based UI was seamlessly switched by engaging customer leadership team.
Customer Vision: The Customers are an energetic team, with clearly defined progressive goals. They were forward thinkers who wanted to experience innovations to their HR Application.

Focus on UI Enhancements & de-customization:

Branding: The HR application was branded with images, color combinations to match the standards of the Customers’ other websites/applications.

Fluid User Interface: With the upgraded HR application, PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface was introduced. Fluid User interface was enabled for Employees, Managers and HR users, giving the application a new “Look and Feel” with specific landing pages.

PeopleTools Features: PeopleTools features, like Navigation Collection, Tile Wizard were explored wherein frequently used Classic pages were gathered into a Fluid collection and exposed to the Managers /HR Users as a tile on their landing page.

Elasticsearch: Replacement of Secure Enterprise Search (SES), made available on PeopleTools 8.55.11 or higher, utilizes less resources and indicates better performance.

Having completed this upgrade magnificently and making a confident & assertive mark with the customer, Kovaion, at present is working on multiple new projects for the customer. To name a few,
HR Application UK Rollout – A new implementation of HR Application for UK HR user.

APAC Enhancements – Enhancements to the Fluid enabled HR application to expose more Self Service related transactions for the users.
