PUM - PeopleSoft Update Manager

PeopleSoft Update Manager

Emory’s PeopleSoft financials system (known within the community as “Compass”) was upgraded in November, 2016. This upgrade enabled Emory to move to the new lifecycle management for PeopleSoft. Oracle’s PUM (PeopleSoft Update Manager) process will enable Emory to avoid lengthy upgrade projects by remaining current with smaller releases (PUMs).
