  • Provide the ability to run the application on any device.
  • Provide a simplified UI with analytics

Customized PeopleSoft, Global Footprint, Older Version

Gallaudet was on PeopleTools 8.57, but they had not implemented Fluid features due to resource and time constraints.

  • Still using classic PeopleSoft application features and pages.
  • The superfluous concern of customization
  • Not a single-source access to information through fluid homepages
  • Behind on PeopleSoft application new features
  • No access to simplified UI with analytics.

  • Use Selective Adoption to apply Fluid UI changes
  • Customize delivered Fluid UI content
  • Conversion of Classic pages to Fluid UI
