Oracle solutions help Ohio State University to improve functioning


Oracle said Ohio State University upgraded to Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management 9.2 and PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0.  The university also deployed the PeopleSoft Interaction Hub.

The company said these solutions are helping the university automate compliance with the Affordable Care Act and various tax regulations, reduce legacy system customization, and take advantage of new human resources (HR) and student administration functionality.

“Oracle’s solutions help us as we strive to support student success, as well as staff productivity and efficiency,” said Dave Keiffer, senior director of enterprise applications, Ohio State University.

The Ohio State University enrols more than 65,000 students on its main campus and four regional campuses.

With the PeopleSoft Interaction Hub, Oracle said, OSU improved system access and functionality for more than 110,000 student, faculty, and staff users.  It added that with one central access point, users can more easily find the information they need.

In addition, OSU was able to lower the level of customizations to its core HCM and student information system software, reducing the time required to maintain these modifications by more than 50 percent.

This reduction will help the university lower IT management costs, as well as decrease the time required for future upgrades.

Separately, Oracle President Thomas Kurian demonstrates Oracle’s cloud innovation across applications, platform, and infrastructure services at Oracle OpenWorld 2015.

Kurian also demonstrated several services on stage, showing how easily people can tap Oracle’s cloud services.

“Any person, anyplace in the world, with just a browser, can access our cloud and get access to all these amazing new product innovations we’ve delivered,” Kurian said during his keynote Tuesday in San Francisco.
