Update to 9.0 Upgrade Schedule
As you may recall in the more detailed message sent in October, IU is in the process of upgrading to PeopleSoft’s most recent 9.0 versions of the Human Resource (HRMS) and Student Information System (SIS) applications. This is a major product release for SIS.
This message is to inform you that the HRMS and SIS Joint Executive Committee members have revised the start date so that the upgrade to version 9.0 will begin on Friday, February 15, 2008. This start date best supports the operational needs of student service, human resources, and payroll. It has also been determined that the final stage of implementing the upgrade to version 9.0 will require approximately a 5 - 6 day period.
As a result, departments should plan for the HRMS and SIS to be unavailable for access starting Friday, February 15th through Wednesday, February 20, 2008. This phase of the upgrade will affect all individuals who currently rely on the SIS for admissions, advising, financial aid, student records, and student financials processing. It will also affect users of the HRMS for payroll, staff and academic HR, and benefit processing.
