Update for the old, in with the new: HR and Payroll System Annual Maintenance success
You'll have heard about the highly successful transition to People and Money for April's payroll run. But in order to make that work Applications Directorate and Finance had to do a last round of updates to the old system to ensure the University met legislative and HMRC requirements, and reduce the risk of any security breaches, in the lead up to the deployment of the new People and Money system.
Gavin McLachlan, Vice-Principal and Chief Information Officer, and Jen Milne, Deputy CIO and Director of Applications Development and Operations, passed their thanks to the project team for the brilliant effort to patch the current system at short notice and within a challenging timeline.
The HR and Payroll system annual maintenance successfully applied the required security and tax year-end patches to maintain the current Oracle E-Business Suite application in the lead-up to the launch of the new People and Money System. This proved to be a critical project delivery to ensure continuity of staff payroll through this transition period.
In addition to delivering the security and tax year-end patches for the current payroll system, the project also delivered these patches to the People and Money system environment to ensure they had the latest system updates and data.
