Big Bang Approach: Simultaneous PS Financials V9.1 Upgrade and New Rollouts [107440]

Sr. VP & Partner
Drivestream, Inc.

In some instances, a big bang approach to a simultaneous upgrade and rollout makes sense versus a small bang or phased schedules.

With time restrictions and limited resources and budgets, it may not be possible to plan for an FSCM upgrade first and afterwards, rollout a reconfigured model to new user divisions with new requirements. The rollout would require retrofits of the existing configurations and changes in the existing business processes.

A plan was executed to simultaneously complete an upgrade to V9.1 and update the current business model to both support both existing and new requirements.

Business agility comes with the ability to incorporate new functionality when new opportunities or challenges arise. Today's most progressive IT organizations increase their performance through co-existence.

This session will present a successful case study of how a Drivestream Customer enhanced their on-premise HCM application by integrating Oracle Fusion Cloud applications. Coexistence allows IT organizations to adopt new applications over time and add new capabilities to their foundation of existing software investments whether it's PeopleSoft, EBS, JD Edwards, and even non-Oracle applications such as SAP.

This modular, building-block approach is possible because Oracle Fusion Cloud applications are built using service-oriented architecture (SOA) designed to ease integration between software platforms. This session will be co-presented with a customer speaker.

The Cloud promises the end of tedious and time consuming application installations, customizations, testing, deployment, and launch processes that can take months or even years. However, deploying enterprise class HR applications, even SaaS applications, take some time, otherwise users risk poor implementation and low user adoption.

Drivestream has developed a HCM Cloud approach that incorporates Rapid Start implementation with innovative, hit the ground tools and templates that shorten the time it takes to go-live with Oracle HCM Cloud solutions.

Oracle HCM Cloud includes Talent Review modules such as Goals Management, Performance Management, Compensation Management, and others. Come join us to learn step-by-step what tasks you can follow to quickly deploy Oracle HCM modules. We will look at a live example where Drivestream implemented goals management in less than 60 days!

The Cloud is on everyone's mind! Chief HR Officers want the convenience and rapid availability of on-demand Human Capital Management applications. Chief Financial Officers want to lower total cost of ownership without sacrificing features and performance. Chief Information Officers want to increase business agility, but worry about security, user adoption, and training.

But everyone knows that sooner or later they all will have to migrate their on-premise applications to the cloud. The question is: How to scope, plan and budget for Cloud Migration, and come up with a project plan that leverages existing resources, identifies needed new resources, and presents a budget that management will approve?

The Drivestream Cloud Migration Assessment brings together extensive on-premise application experience, state-of-the-art knowledge of cloud technologies, and best-practice assessment methodologies to help on-premise users migrate to the cloud. This session will inform attendees on the best way to understand what is required to take their enterprise applications to the next level.

The Finance team at Yonkers Raceway in New York City was finding it tough going. While the fastest horses were running on their tracks, their PeopleSoft FSCM applications were running on outdated PeopleSoft systems.

To upgrade their systems they engaged Drivestream, their Oracle Platinum Partner, who helped them learn all of the new features from their current version to the new version. They identified all of their customizations, and calculated the level of effort required to retrofit these customizations to the new platform. Finally, they created a detailed upgrade project plan.

Following this plan, Yonkers and Drivestream were able to successfully upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2 in 100 days! That's right -UPGRADE and DONE in 100!
