  1. 1. Big Data + PeopleSoft = BIG WIN!Session #31711March 19, 2013
  2. 2.  Kirk Chan, VP of Business Development Former PeopleTools Strategy 17 years working with PeopleSoft Ramesh Panchagnula, President Former Oracle/PeopleSoft FunctionalArchitect 15+ years working with PeopleSoft
  3. 3.  SmartERP Overview Introduction to Big Data Concepts Big Data Use Cases for PeopleSoft Applications Q & A
  4. 4. About SmartERP
  5. 5. About SmartERP: Sample Client Embedded PeopleSoft Dashboard
  6. 6. What is Big Data?• Three Characteristics of Big Data:• Variety, Volume and Velocity
  7. 7. When is Big Data a Big Fit ?• Complex information processing is needed• Unstructured data needs to be turned into structured data• Queries can’t be reasonably expressed using SQL• Heavily recursive and complex algorithms• Machine learning• Data sets are too large to fit into database RAM, discs, too manycores (10’s of TB up to PB)• Data value does not justify expense of constant real-timeavailability• Results are not needed in real time• Fault tolerance is critical• Significant custom coding would be required to handle jobscheduling
  8. 8. Big Data LingoComponent Details1 Hadoop File System3 PigLatin2 MapReduce4 Hive5 ZookeeperOpen source distributed file system. Master/slave architecture. Scalable,fault tolerant distributed file system.Applications need streaming access to dataBatch processing rather than interactive user access.Large data sets and files: gigabytes to terabytes sizeDistributed programming Model. Powerful framework for parallelcomputation.Map: Apply a function to every object in a list . Each object is independent.Reduce: Combine the results to produce a final resultPig is a platform for analyzing large data sets. Pigs language is Pig Latin,lets you specify a sequence of data transformations.SQL-like query language called QLData warehouse system that provides SQL interface.Data structure can be projected onto unstructured underlying dataCentralized service for maintaining configuration information,naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing groupservices.Text Search and Indexing6 Lucene / SolrColumn oriented, non-relational, schema-less, distributed databaseTable is made of any number of regions.Random, real-time read/write access to Big Data7 HBase
  9. 9. Big Data Ecosystem

  14. 14. Use Case 1: Tax Dashboard and Reconciliation Select FinTransactions• Sales Tax datafrom Ordermanagementand Billing• Use Tax datafrom AccountsPurchase Ordersand Payables• Data for SpecificPeriod,Department,Location,Customer etc. Tax File dumpedto Hadoop• Dump data fromADP tax file intoHadoop• Process themetadata• Validate thedata Analyze and processthe data from bothsources (PS &BigData)• Based on YourTaxManagerrequirementmassage the data• Summarized taxesbased on variousreportingdimensions ReconciliationDashboard• Dashboardrequirements• Drilldown into PSFTfrom dashboards• Discrepanciespresented Fin Transactions• TaxManager totake actions to fixthe discrepancies.• Notifications tocustomers onexpired tax exemptcertificates• Adjust the Tax FilingProcess

Use Case 1: Tax Dashboard and Reconciliation--DEMOSolution DetailsAnalytics and Reporting• Dashboard and Reporting built on Taxware Taxfile loaded into Hadoop• PeopleSoft Tax tablesDownstream Tasks• Sales tax and Use Tax export file dumped intoBig Data and processed by Smart BigDataManagement• Tax amount discrepancies are found for variousdimensions• Tax manager is notified to reconcile thediscrepancies between PeopleSoft GL andTaxware system• Customer Tax Exemption certificates processingTax Reconciler Demo
  16. 16. Use Case 2: Supplier Diversity Process Select VendorData andPaymentTransactions• ReviewPeopleSoftVendor Masterdata• Select thepaymentsprocessed.Supplier filesdumped to Hadoop• Dump supplierdata fromvarious sourcesinto Hadoop(Ex: FederalContractorRegistry, D&BFeed,Procurementdepartment ofall Stategovernments)• Search thediversity of thesuppliers basedon therequirement. Analyze andprocess the datafrom both sources(PS & BigData)• Based on YourProcurementdepartmentrequirementmassage thedata to analyzethe diversity of allthe vendors.• Summarizedpayments basedon variousreportingdimensions ReconciliationDashboard• GenerateSupplier diversityreports RefineProcurementpolicies• NotifyProcurementdepartment foradditionalprocessing• Notifications tosuppliers onexpiredcertificates
  17. 17. Use Case 2: Supplier Diversity ProcessSolution Details Analytics and Reporting• Dashboard and Reporting built on PeopleSoft vendorTables.• Supplier Diversity feed from various organizations usedto categorize the PeopleSoft vendors(Few Org: CCR, D&B, MBE, WMBE, All State Gov.) Downstream Tasks• Procurement Department will be notified based onexceptions.• Suppliers with expired certificates will be notified Benefits• The competitive advantage afforded your organizationthrough effective supplier diversity.• Allows for better supplier diversity related purchasingdecisions.• Promotes business opportunities for diverse businesses.• Generates various supplier diversity expenditure reports.
