Image 23 is out and it has some really exciting features in it. I think from a capability entension point of view this is the best image yet released. Key features introduced are:
- Discussion service – This is something I saw in fusion and I really loved it. This is like an internal social engine where HR topics can be discussed and shared in private or public setting. For example an employee can share his goal and request best ways to attain it or someone can share a quick tip on how to complete a particular transaction. I need to still review it but this can be a game changer for support and collaboration.
2. CAF – Common Analytic Framework – This is probably most exciting. If I am reading it correctly, this means we finally have a framework for self service reporting which is at par with other products in market. So no more figuring out the PS queries. If implemented correctly, this will put PeopleSoft light years ahead of any competition. It will provide unparallel range of reporting products. More to come..
3. Onboarding – Finally we have an onboarding tool in PS. This will now bridge the gap between TAM and HR. Excited to see how configurable it is but if it is based on activity guide then it holds lot of promise.
4. Fluid life events – Another functionality that clients have been eagerly looking for.
