Is PS/nVision Too Difficult for Non-Technical Peoplesoft Users?

Peoplesoft Icon Noit

Your IT Team is Bogged Down in Report Requests

The out-of-the-box PeopleSoft reports don’t cover finance teams needs, forcing them to write custom reports. However, creating and updating reports in tools like PS/nVision, BI Publisher for Peoplesoft, and Oracle OBIEE, is a complex task requiring technical knowledge. This places a heavy reliance on over-burdened IT resources to manage both recurring and ad-hoc reports. The result is delays, frustration, and an inability for finance teams to run ongoing interim reports to check status and outliers.

Period Close Processes are Drawn Out and Painful

The lack of real-time data and the limited drill- downs offered by nPlosion in PS/nVision complicate and extend your period close. Finance teams waste days going over mismatched journal entries, and balancing debits and credits, to reconcile the General Ledger (GL). Complex data structures force finance teams to rely on IT to create and maintain SQL queries for subledger reconciliations. Organizations with multiple business units struggle to visualize and analyze consolidated data and lack flexibility to cope with last minute changes.

PS/nVision Skills are in Short Supply

A lack of PS/nVision skills within most IT departments, means if one of these people leaves, the organization is vulnerable when making changes to their PeopleSoft deployment. That’s because any modifications to table structures, tree nodes, or other changes that alter a query, can break the PS/nVision reports. To fix this requires a skilled IT resource to rewrite the query, update the template, and then re-run the reports for the finance team.

“What we liked about Spreadsheet Server in particular was that we could connect it directly to our production environment, which is extremely important for audit financials at the end of the year. Not a lot of tools have that option or capability.”
