2015 - 2nd Quarter

PeopleSoft Finance/Supply Chain Upgrade May 23-25, 2015

By Donna Johanning, Director of Financial Information Systems

The PeopleSoft Finance/Supply Chain modules will be upgraded to version 9.2 over the Memorial Day weekend. The upgrade was commissioned to allow for continued support of the application suite and to support the strategic goals of the University of Missouri System. This is a life cycle management project that is necessary to extend support for the PeopleSoft Finance and Supply Chain application suite. The current software version has been in production since December 1, 2008; support for this version ends in June 2015.

As part of the upgrade process, the project team has reviewed delivered features in an effort to reduce the number of application modifications and plans to leverage new functionality that will improve university business processes. Training materials are being updated and information sessions are planned to explain any changes to Finance and Supply Chain procedures and to introduce new features that are being deployed.

Changes to the scheduled availability of the Finance and Supply Chain modules during the week prior to the upgrade will be necessary to prepare the database for the upgrade, as well as a complete shutdown during the three day weekend. The schedule for the last two weeks of May will be communicated once it has been finalized in early May.
