Oracle's PeopleSoft applications are the basis for a great number of the University's mission critical functions. Other enterprise applications integrate with PeopleSoft to provide specific functionality to select user populations via an innovative XML-based service layer. Many students and staff members interact with these external self-service applications, as opposed to the native PeopleSoft screens.
The PeopleSoft system as used at the University of Minnesota is large, complex, and highly tailored to the University's environment. Instance refreshes, code migrations, and application of patches/bundles/regulatory releases are frequent, ongoing events.
OIT provides development support and codes all application customizations and software integrations to these applications. The information on this page is published for University of Minnesota business analysts and technology staff who are authorized to access these systems.
