How the program works

Open all Close all
  • What's the difference between PeopleSoft Innovators and Feature Innovators?

    Feature Innovators rapidly adopt one or more individual PeopleSoft features available in the latest update images.

    PeopleSoft Innovators transform their businesses through the widespread adoption of two or more broader initiatives, such as Analytics or Selective Adoption.

  • Which features do I need to deploy to qualify as a Feature Innovator?

    If you’ve deployed recently delivered features, you qualify for the Feature Innovator program. Over time, the features that qualify for the program will change. When we deliver strategic new features, we’ll add them to the list. When we have a critical mass of Feature Innovators for a specific feature, we’ll remove it from the list.

    For the full list of features, see PeopleSoft Feature Innovator Nomination Form.

  • How do I get into the Hall of Fame?

    Have you fully embraced today's PeopleSoft? If you’ve transformed your business in all (or nearly all) 20 categories listed on the nomination form, such as digital assistants, analytics, and Cloud transformation, then you may qualify for the Hall of Fame. Each nomination will be evaluated carefully, on a case-by-case basis.

    The required Hall of Fame transformation categories may evolve over time if we introduce new strategic initiatives. For the full list of categories that are evaluated, see PeopleSoft Hall of Fame Nomination Form.
