St. Petersburg College, in conjunction with their partner Sierra-Cedar Consulting, have migrated their PeopleSoft systems to OCI. In addition, in conjunction with their partner SpearMC, they have deployed Fluid UI and used delivered configuration frameworks to reduce customizations.
St. Petersburg College (SPC) is running PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, HCM, Finance, and Interaction Hub enterprise applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. SPC moved PeopleSoft infrastructure from on-premises to OCI in March, 2019 with all in-house staff and with the help from Oracle. The migration to OCI was more than just a "lift and shift." SPC converted all web and application servers from Windows (bare metal and VMs) to Linux VMs in OCI. OCI services enhanced the College’s disaster/business recovery strategy while improving efficiencies in infrastructure management, environment provisioning, and maintenance.
SPC upgraded all their applications to PeopleTools 8.58 and deployed Fluid UI on their enterprise portal in March, 2021. As part of the PeopleTools 8.58 upgrade and fluid conversion of enterprise portal, SPC has also adopted PUSH notification that consolidated notifications from all product pillars to replace the worklist functionality that was in use in the classic version.
During OCI migration and PeopleTools upgrade, SPC used Sierra-Cedar consulting services to assist with the project work.
In conjunction with the upgrade project, SPC partnered with SpearMC on a HCM transformation project to implement Personnel Actions using Guided Self-Service for Managers with workflow approval functionalities to replace their in-house developed MS Access database system (PAAR) and associated manual processes.
Delivered GSS functionality extended with various configuration frameworks like delegation, Page Composer, and drop zones has allowed SPC to entirely replace a standalone system and consolidate the processes within PeopleSoft HR system. The project went live in March, 2021.
Unified navigation enabled for HCM, FSCM and CS.
Guided Self-Service for managers labeled personnel actions, showing both delivered and custom transactions.
Custom fields added to Guided Self-Service using Fluid drop zones.
Fluid approvals for Guided Self-Service include delivered transactions and custom-built transactions like "Request Hire."
Fluid delegation request.
