Understanding the Phases of Implementation

Although few implementations follow exactly the phases of a system development lifecycle (SDLC) or implementation plan, the following implementation phases are provided as a framework through which you can gain an understanding of how and when specific PeopleTools are intended to be used. This framework should be viewed as a high-level educational guide rather than a strict, implementation model.

Note: Some PeopleTools may be used in multiple phases of an implementation.

Note: The implementation phases in this framework are intended to help you gain a better understanding of PeopleTools regarding how and when they may be used. The implementation phases in no way imply strict dependencies between phases. Every implementation is unique.
