Basic Requirements for Implementers
PeopleSoft applications support a broad range of configurations that accommodate the way in which you do business. As with any implementation, you are asked to make business decisions during this process to ensure that the final configuration reflects your company's business needs.
The implementation team must consider whether your company will alter your existing business processes to fit within the PeopleSoft system's delivered functionality or whether you will modify the PeopleSoft system to match your existing business processes. These decisions require a thorough understanding of how your business operates, and should be based on a solid knowledge of PeopleSoft functionality.
In the planning phase of your implementation, take advantage of all PeopleSoft sources of information, including the installation guides, PeopleTools documentation, and the PeopleBooks that are specific to your applications.
The Setup Manager is designed to assist you with your implementation of recently purchased PeopleSoft products. Alternatively, you may use Setup Manager to implement new products that are now available to you because of a recent upgrade.
