Oracle has announced the general availability of its PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0. The introduction of PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 completes the delivery of the PeopleSoft Enterprise 9 Suite.
In response to customer feedback and insight, PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 enables organizations to successfully deploy fully integrated talent management strategies and configurable business processes across the enterprise. Additionally, this latest release leverages Oracle Fusion Middleware and industry-standard technology to help reduce the total cost of ownership while increasing business value.
Relying on PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0, organizations are equipped to implement enterprise-wide talent management strategies. The new Profile Management feature serves as the foundation of all functional areas of talent management including recruiting, performance management, development, learning management analytics and competency management. PeopleSoft Profile Management integrates all talent management applications and defines organizational, job and person profiles from a common set of skills, experiences, certifications and other attributes. As a result, organizations can seamlessly match candidates to jobs, create prescriptive learning and development plans and measure performance against established goals.
PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 delivers more flexible and configurable capabilities that enable organizations to tailor applications to complement their unique business challenges and reduce the need for customizations. For example, SmartHire is a new capability that includes a template-driven approach to streamline the hiring process. By leveraging SmartHire, organizations can deploy job or location-specific hiring templates across the enterprise, allowing rapid, flexible hiring from non-traditional locations while helping to reduce administrative costs and eliminate the need for customization. Additionally, with enhancements to the person model functionality, customers may more effectively manage the non-traditional workforce, while an embedded online I-9 processing tool will help to ensure compliance and increase operational efficiency. In areas such as payroll, benefits and performance, customers will find new, easy-to-use, highly configurable tools that enable them to more effectively execute their business processes.
PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 has been integrated with components of Oracle Fusion Middleware including Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (previously called Oracle XML Publisher). These integrations give customers a comprehensive, standards-based platform to address the challenges of disparate technologies and applications. Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher helps reduce the high costs associated with the development, customization and maintenance of documents while increasing the efficiency of document and reporting management. A centralized and highly configurable approvals and delegation framework reduces the need for customization, enables regulatory compliance and increases overall data integrity. PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management 9.0 is based on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) with enhanced and additional web services to improve extensibility and performance.
