Glitch persuades district staff to better explore PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
Los Angeles Pierce College Roundup on September 19, 2018
Nearly 1,800 Los Angeles Pierce College students were accidentally auto-enrolled across 1,100 different lessons for the Fall 2018 semester, from the waitlist. Allegedly, the error occurred because of the difficulties with integrities of a new student information system (PeopleSoft Campus Solutions).
The engine run was performed due to a request placed by a Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) employee for assistance on a waitlist inquiry. The incorrect parameters were input into the system and, as a result, the waitlist engine run was performed throughout the district. Students knew about the auto-enrollment through their self-service portal, and the technical team managed to handle the problem.
I think the positive that we can take out of this, is the administration’s willingness to acknowledge their mistake, take responsibility and their will to correct it in a timely manner.
Athletic counselor Joseph Roberson
Regalado hopes as the college and district staff continue to learn PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, the staff will become more familiar with the system thus making a smaller margin for error.

Oracle provides features to tune application packages’ SQL like PeopleSoft
ToolBox on September 7, 2018
Application package software is a collection of software programs designed to be licensed to third-party organizations. Although a package software may be tailored for a user’s specific needs through parameters or tables, the software itself is not developed specifically for an organization. So, users do not own the source code and have no way to modify the embedded SQL statements for performance tuning purpose. There are a lot of application packages built on Oracle RDBMS such as Siebel, PeopleSoft JD Edwards, SAP, etc.
In order to help application packages’ users, Oracle provides some features for helping users to tune their SQL statements without the need to change their source code.
