Health Information Exchange: Enter IoT & Data Science
The idea of Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIO), Regional Health Information Exchanges (RHIE) and, generically speaking, Health Information Exchange (HIE), is not a new concept. Acronyms change, new ones are coined and some are no longer in vogue. Nevertheless, the underlying principle is universal; it is the integration and exchange … continue
Data Monetization, Internet of Things, and Data Science as a Service - Part 2
As mentioned previously, we explored the rudimentary beginnings, from a specific perspective twenty years ago, of Internet of things (IoT), Data Monetization and Data Science as a Service (DSaaS). The foundation of the perspective was predicated on technology, statistics and competitive advantage sought by the William Wrigley Junior Company. Albeit … continue
Data Monetization, Internet of Things, and Data Science as a Service - Part 1
The idea of data monetization, albeit more popular and growing today, is not a new one. Broadly speaking, data monetization is deriving value from data; either direct revenue through its sale or realized benefits from its usage and manipulation. The internet of things (IoT) is generally described as the internetworking of physical devices, embedded … continue
Do's and Don'ts to Employee Motivation
We live in a ‘Do More with Less,’ fast-paced world, resulting in directors, project managers, business analysis leads, application leads, or even ourselves as team members, struggling to find ways to keep our team - and ourselves - motivated. Everybody wants something done now – and done their way – which places a tremendous pressure on … continue
Addressing the Issue
If your ERP implementation includes the revenue cycle, you will probably need to convert customer data to the new financial system of record. How do you know when to create a new customer record versus when to add an address to an existing customer record?

Keeping Your System Fit – Data Archiving
I was able to pull up the page in seconds in January. How come it takes minutes in October? The batch processing window used to be much shorter before; now we are not able to meet the SLA requirements. What’s happening? Remember the help desk calls regarding PeopleSoft application performance issues and DBAs, PeopleSoft Administrators and … continue
Managing Your PeopleSoft Customizations
With the latest PeopleSoft 9.2 applications, we now have a true pick-and-choose interface, where all dependencies are managed for us, and a true "custom" change package can be built. If I were running 9.2 GA, and needed a fix from PUM Image 16, I would simply choose that fix, and any requisite code is built into my change package. While this is a … continue
A New Breed of Integration – PeopleSoft FSCM and ImageNow
Not too long ago this world was filled with tons of storage rooms filled with endless paper as it is a requirement by law to keep documentation for a various number of years for audit purposes. Today the world is rapidly moving towards better, more sophisticated software such as PeopleSoft and ImageNow that can solve this problem.
Understanding Your Chartfield Design
Clients often question their chartfield design. It is a big question comprised of many smaller questions. Some of those questions are best answered with questions. Here is one such answer in the form of a question.
Preparing for a New Set of Users in PeopleSoft
Remember when life was more predictable? Your job was known. The systems you used were designed around the business. Upgrades were long. IT staff was busy all the time without time for you (well that might still be the case). Approvals were passed around the office for signature, on paper! If someone was out of the office, you had to wait for them … continue
