USG Announcement: iStrategy Status UpdateApr 21, 2015, 09:06 am - Becky Smith
iStrategy has been unavailable since the PeopleSoft 9.2 application upgrade due to retrofits in iStrategy needed to accommodate changes in PeopleSoft Financials for the 9.2 application upgrade. Examples include changes to budget reference and budget period fields. Additionally, the iStrategy technical infrastructure has been upgraded. These infrastructure changes were completed within the last couple of days. ITS is finishing up data validation testing and plans to have the iStrategy application back up and running on Wednesday, 4/22.
The USG - ITS Department will send out another status update by Wednesday, 4/22. We will advise you of that update as soon as we receive it.
Thank you for your patience. We do apologize for the inconvenience this delay may have caused.
PeopleSoft UpgradeApr 13, 2015, 05:18 pm - Becky Smith
The PeopleSoft Financials system, including the automated Expense Reimbursement and Online Requisition modules, was recently taken offline in late March by the USG IT Services for the purpose of completing a major version upgrade.
We are pleased to tell you that the full system is now back online.
Following the PeopleSoft upgrade, all campus users should have the same access as they had prior to the upgrade.
Should you encounter any problems in using the PeopleSoft system, or not have the necessary access, please contact Maurena Grant in Financial Accounting at 344-3388 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciate your patience during the upgrade.
PeopleSoft Interface to iStrategyApr 13, 2015, 05:06 pm - Becky Smith
On March 31, 2015, the University System completed the conversion of a new PeopleSoft upgrade. Unfortunately this upgrade caused problems with the the nightly interface from PeopleSoft to iStrategy. That interface has been down since the conversion.
BOR ITS is aware of the issue and is working to restore the interface. At this time BOR ITS does not have an estimate of when this problem will be resolved.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update you as to when the interface is restored and data in iStrategy has been updated.
You can track the current status of this issue on the BOR ITS Service Status webpage: http://status.usg.edu/istrategy/
We apologize for any inconvenience.
