Business/Systems Analyst with 1,001-5,000 employees
Initially, it was complex, expensive, and it was done with the help of an external consulting company since the expertise was not there and it was a decentralized organization. They also had to implement payroll in 20 plants or so at the same time with a custom T&A application and hundreds of requirement gathering sessions and hundreds of training sessions. If we had to do the same thing, it would be a lot different; we know what is required and how it needs to be done. View full review »

If you know PeopleSoft, then the setup is straightforward. If you go to the PeopleSoft education sector they make it complicated and people don't understand. It's important to provide consultants with proper training. Often the implementation is completed incorrectly and they blame the solution. It's not the solution, rather it's the people who implemented it incorrectly. If it's not set up correctly then it will take the software forever. View full review »

Some clients are hesitant to get rid of some of the customizations that they are used to and being able to pick up the versatility provided by Oracle to make their life easier. They are hesitant to adapt to the system and then they won't be able to pick up and go on cloud. The deployment for version 9.2 took about four to six months, depending on how large the project or the scope is. Deployment on cloud depends on if they are going by face to face, and it will take anywhere from three to four months because they give patches. These patches are pretty straightforward.

The initial setup is straightforward. It is not complex. Deployment depends on the size of the organization. If you are just installing it, it can take a week, but if you are installing, and doing a quality implementation it can take five to six months, which would include doing analysis, customization, and testing.
