Introduction and general background

Oracle's PeopleSoft applications are the basis for a great number of the University's mission-critical functions. Other enterprise applications - supported by OIT or by other distributed IT units - integrate with PeopleSoft to provide specific functionality to targeted user populations. The OIT PeopleSoft team publishes the change control schedule on this page for the University of Minnesota business analysts and technology staff who represent business process owners in the support of the group of PeopleSoft applications. Other University support applications may follow the same general schedule.

Additional notification and approval from a Service Owner is required. Critical requests are migrated beginning at 4:00 PM the day they are requested. If a time other than 4:00 PM is needed, it must be indicated in the Service Owner's notification.

Approval of test results should be submitted to a Service Owner by noon for a request to be migrated at 4:00 PM. If the migration is to occur at a time other than 4:00 PM, approval of test results should be submitted 4-hours prior.
