The University de Santiago de Chile uses PeopleSoft FSCM, HCM, and CS applications, but all of them were on version 9.0 running on outdated hardware and software. This presented a number of challenges including:
Heavily customized legacy applications
USACH had attempted a Campus Solutions (CS) implementation before with CS version 9.0. Based on that, they concerned about delays in procuring the infrastructure and resources needed to install and set up the PeopleSoft application software for their project. They were also concerned about resource constraints of their internal technical staff, lack of country-specific localizations in the product, and inaccessibility of expert consulting resources in South America to help them during the implementation.
Long lead time to procure, install and configure hosted hardware solution for PeopleSoft CS 9.2 re-implementation
5x higher price quote for an on-premise hosting solution as compared to OCI
Lack of local PeopleSoft CS 9.2 consulting expertise and experience
Traditional project plans and estimates were too long and too costly
The University de Santiago de Chile realized that in order to overcome their challenges and to deliver a modernized application experience to faculty, students, and administrative staff, they have to move to the cloud.
Rapid infrastructure deployment on OCI
Granular cost controls and predictable spend
Accelerated CS 9.2 implementation
Responsive, mobile-friendly student self-service apps
Astute Business Solutions assessed the business needs of the University de Santiago de Chile and developed a roadmap and detailed plan for re-implementing PeopleSoft on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. This included a solution for converting master data and configuration and keeping them current on CS 9.2 with Selective Adoption so that the University could take advantage of the latest features as they implemented this project in phases.
