Coppin needed to upgrade and integrate its PeopleSoft applications to make them efficient and easier to use. Being a leader in technology themselves, Coppin wanted to leverage Cloud technologies.
Risk of HCM 9.0 going out of support
Aging and retiring workforce
Attrition resulting in knowledge drain
The high cost of on-premise infrastructure
The Coppin IT Team was supporting PeopleSoft applications across different releases which complicated their operational and support models. FSCM was on V9.2, and Portal (Interaction Hub) was on V9.1, whereas, HCM and CS were both on V9.0. HR users were lacking self-service capabilities which most other organizations were already using. Assistance was needed to upgrade to a modern environment that included a migration to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:
Security and compliance risks associated with being on an unsupported PeopleSoft version
Inability to patch and update older versions of the software
Resource and skills challenges in-house to upgrade to PeopleSoft V9.2
HCM 9.0 application with legacy features and antiquated UI
By rapidly deploying a low-cost, high-performance architecture on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Astute Business Solutions accelerated Coppin's upgrade projects, with predictable costs and measurable outcomes.
