On July 7th, Jeff Keller, VP of Talent Acquisition for MIPRO Consulting wrote about the buzz around Campus Solutions 9.2 Release that Oracle will be delivering. The release is targeted for the second half of this year and Oracle recently released a Campus Solution 9.2 FAQ. It is must-read for all PeopleSoft Campus Solutions customers. As Jeff mentioned in his blog, higher education customers are excited about this new release since it has been quite a while since 9.0 was released but waiting for releases is a thing of the past. After upgrading to 9.2, PeopleSoft Campus Solutions customers will be able to take advantage of all the new future functionality using the technology provided by PUM. For those of you who are not familiar with PUM, PeopleSoft has introduced and implemented an innovative “Selective Adoption” model for delivering software changes. Customers are able to select which updates they want and when they want them to apply them. This customer-centric new approach is made possible by the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM), a technology that delivers software changes in Update Images. The FAQ document talks about the Fluid UI that will be available after the initial roll-out of the 9.2 release. With the Fluid UI the user, whether accessing the application via a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone, experiences the application as if it has been built for that device. In this mobile world that we live in this functionality meets the needs of everyone from students to administrators.
