PeopleSoft 9.2 Upgrade Services



Spyre Solutions Introduces Flexible Upgrade Options!


We offer our PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade services on a “cafeteria-style” paradigm. You can engage us to execute a “Complete People-Soft Upgrade” or you may choose to use us for one or more of our standard service offerings. Our goal is to be flexible rather than prescriptive. We can mix and match the way we perform the upgrade depending on factors specific to your organization.




Spyre Solutions PeopleSoft 9.2 Upgrade Service Offerings:


Upgrade Assessments

The primary goal of Upgrade Assessments is to establish the scope/parameters for the upcoming upgrade. This service is performed on Fixed Price basis and is performed either entirely by our Upgrade Factory experts or as a combination of on-site consultants and offsite Upgrade Factory experts.




Spyre’s Methodology Leads to Rapid Assessment!

We utilize a methodology designed to rapidly assess the scope of the upgrade effort. SQR’s, queries, application engine programs and component interfaces are programmatically analyzed. The resulting reports are then analyzed to identify the required remediation and allows for a more accurate estimate of the level of effort to complete the upgrade. Comparisons of modified SQR’s are performed to determine the extent of remediation required.


fit gap


Fit Gap assesses the various fits and gaps between the new release and your current business environment. This assessment is used to define the high-level scope of the re-customization effort.

The following are considered during your business fit/gap analysis:

  • Identify as many opportunities as possible to retire existing customizations based on new delivered functionality
  • Include both the online and batch environment, and determine your business needs
  • Identify the current business processes including online processing, reporting, and interfaces
  • Review new functionality and compare it to your current functionality to identify possible conflicts & impacts
  • Review existing customizations and evaluate if they can be dropped or continue to be necessary

Upon completion of the Upgrade Assessment you will have a clear understanding of the upgrade requirements & scope and you will have the necessary tools to develop an accurate upgrade plan!


Technical Upgrade Services

The technical portion of the upgrade by definition consists of:

  • Update your PeopleSoft software
  • Copy any new object(s) into your database and adjust all your system components—such as application data, SQL tables, indexes, views, batch programs, and so forth—accordingly

Our clients may choose to utilize our Canada-based Upgrade Lab for further cost savings.

Customization Retrofit Services

In a perfect world your PeopleSoft implementation runs 100% vanilla, but this is never the case. Our clients typically have numerous customizations, application extensions, custom reports, and interfaces that need to be addressed during the upgrade. Spyre Solutions customizations retrofit service is designed to identify and retrofit those customizations that are deemed necessary into the newly upgraded environment.

A preliminary RICEWF list (Customizations, Reports, Interfaces, Enhancements/Extensions, Workflows, Forms) is created at the start of this service for scope review.


9.2 Functionality Implementation Services

Every new release offers functionality enhancements.

Our PeopleSoft experts evaluate these new functionalities vis-à-vis your business environment and work with you to determine:

  • New functionality that brings value to your business process
  • New functionality that brings value to your business process and allows the retirement of existing customizations
  • New functionality that brings value to your business process but requires additional customizations

A draft final  RICEWF list and new functionalities implementation list, including levels of effort, are created at the start of this service for scope review and finalization.

On the basis of this deliverable an implementation strategy is formed. Spyre Solutions functional and technical specialists can help you execute on all steps necessary to bring the required new functionality to production. This service is performed by a hybrid team of PeopleSoft functional and technical experts.
