PeopleSoft on OCI: The State of Oklahoma – We’ve Moved and Continue to Improve

Presented by:
Rob Mowid, MIPRO

View abstract

Abstract:

The State of Oklahoma successfully took on the challenge to move their PeopleSoft Financial and Supply Chain environment to OCI and updated their PUM image. While that was a big step, it was only their first step. Their vision and plan included migrating departments and agencies off of legacy systems and onto a centralized PeopleSoft platform. The move to OCI set the foundation for that to happen. This session will recap Oklahoma’s journey to OCI, and focus on what has been done since then and what lies ahead for the state.

We will share an overview of the State’s path to OCI and discuss plans for additional PeopleSoft usage, complementary tools and products and their plans to maintain that environment long-term.

Objectives:

  • Learn from the State of Oklahoma’s experience. How to utilize the software, resources and skills you have available to help plan and execute a long-term strategy for managing your financial system.
  • Understand the importance of executive leadership and support when undertaking an initiative of this size and scope. Support from Cabinet members, State leaders and agency CFO’s created an environment that allowed the State the ability to map out and execute.
  • PeopleSoft is a great foundation for your financials and allows for the use of complementary tools and systems to provide a complete solution for your financial needs.
