  19. 19. PeopleSoft Tools Interfaces & Conversion Tool: SQR’s People Code: The proprietary scripting language used in the development of PeopleSoft applications. People Tools: •Development •Administration •Reporting and Analysis Panel Designer: Tree Manager: Used for creating panels (screens) for user input Process Scheduler: Process Scheduler provides PeopleSoft applications with a user-configurable tool that integrates with PeopleSoft panels, PeopleSoft security, and PeopleCode functions. Through this integration, Process Scheduler enables users to request and monitor batch processes related to their PeopleSoft application. 1) Reporting 2) Conversion 3) Interface Tool Used for security and reporting.
  20. 20. PeopleSoft Tools Application Designer: Using Application Designer to build, maintain, customize, and upgrade PeopleSoft applications. We can use Panel, panel group and menu to create application. Data Management: Data Mover: It allows you to import and export data across multiple database platforms. Import Manager: to import data into your PeopleSoft tables. Mass Change: It use to create SQL processes which supplement your application functionality.
  21. 21. PeopleSoft Tools Reports: SQR’s: Crystal: Crystal Reports from Seagate software is a report formatter that helps you generate clear and easy-to- read printed reports containing data from your PeopleSoft applications. N vision (mainly financials): PS/nVision enables you to retrieve information from your PeopleSoft database into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet—not merely as "raw" data, but as information in a form that helps you see the big picture, explore the details, and make decisions. Query: For defining database queries in an easy-to-use graphical environment. You create queries to extract the data you need from your PeopleSoft database. Tree Manager: Tree Manager to create and maintain trees. A tree is a PeopleSoft object that defines the groupings and hierarchical relationships between the values of a database field. Cube Manager: Cube Manager allows you to define and save templates for building and updating OLAP cubes. The Cube Manager provides all these benefits while achieving a nearly platform-independent solution -the great majority of a cube's design attributes can be applied to either Arbor Essbase or Cognos PowerPlay. Used for complex reporting
  22. 22. Business Process: Workflow: Message Agent: To automate the process with 3rd party applications. To automate the Business process without any human intervention. Example Purchase Req, Purchase Order etc., PeopleSoft Tools

  40. 40. What are legacy systems? „ IBM Mainframes in the high-range and AS/400, Unix in the mid-range systems „ Developed 2-3 decades ago „ Poorly documented, expensive to maintain and yet extremely fast and robust! „ Used by most banks, insurance companies, manufacturing, automotive, power/ utilities and retail clients Introduction of Legacy Practice
  41. 41. What are Legacy Systems? Mainframes „Relatively large computers built to handle very large databases, thousands of user terminals with fast response times, and millions of transactions „Used mainly by •Large companies for mission critical applications and bulk data processing e.g. Banking and Insurance (Mellon Bank, Allstate), Retail (Wesco, Les Schwab, Lowe’s), Healthcare (Kaiser Permanente, Harrington Benefit Services), Automotive (Blue Bird, Goodyear), Telecommunications (Alltel) •Government organizations (e.g. Ohio Dept. of Taxation) Mid Range Systems „Application System 400 (AS/400) Middleware „Technologies used to connect Legacy to Open Systems (Microsoft/ Sun technologies) ƒIBM MQ Series ƒTIBCO
