Is PeopleSoft HCM a Modern HR System?


Great writeup from Maria Ana Santiago over at PeopleSoft Apps Strategy discussing the buzz around “modern HR systems” and how PeopleSoft HCM 9.2 fits within that label. We’ll be the first to say that pandering to an ambiguous marketing term like “modern HR system” is a slippery slope, but indeed that’s what we hear our clients talking about. So slippery or not, it’s valid.

Santiago’s post comes as a recap of the OHUG PeopleSoft HCM roadmap session, and it’s a great summary of Oracle’s position for PeopleSoft HCM in the current landscape:

During OHUG we showed and demoed what we have delivered in the latest product images as well as what we are planning on delivering during the rest of this calendar year.  Several of the new applications and new capabilities to be delivered are being built with Peopletools 8.54 Fluid technology. The paradigm shift that started with 9.2 is now taking another dimension and completing the modernization of PeopleSoft HCM.  PeopleSoft Responsive and Fluid design allows PeopleSoft HCM to have applications that can be optimized for multiple devices – phone, tablet and desktop -. It doesn’t matter what size of monitor you have, or what type of tablet, or which phone. Our applications will render and adjust to the device you are using. Some of the applications we demoed at OHUG were: Mobile Approvals, Time and Absence Entry,  Manager Self Service with the new My Team View and Guided Self Service, Employee Self Service with new Personal data / profile self service capabilities.

The whole thing is a great read, especially if you are (or are looking to become) a PeopleSoft HCM 9.2 customer.
