Thousands of companies are investing millions of dollars in PeopleSoft systems -- and a crucial factor in the success of these systems is careful database and report design. Now, for the first time, PriceWaterhouseCoopers consultant Adam Bromwich presents comprehensive, authoritative guidance on the successful design of PeopleSoft HRMS databases, tables, and reports for maximum value and effectiveness. Bromwich begins with a detailed overview of how the PeopleSoft database is organized, functionally and technically. Review the database's key tables, and the tools PeopleSoft provides for finding the table you need. Throughout the book, Bromwich focuses on the most efficient approach to retrieving PeopleSoft data: using SQL to access the database directly, rather than going through menus and panels. You'll review table design and reporting in HR, Payroll, and Benefits; and master the Structured Query Reports (SQR) language, PeopleSoft's most powerful reporting tool. You'll learn proven methods for designing both primary and secondary data tables for maximum performance, simplicity, and ease of data retrieval. Bromwich also demonstrates how to avoid common pitfalls in PeopleSoft table design -- including costly errors specific to multinational organizations. For all PeopleSoft developers and power users who will be creating databases and data tables to be accessed through PeopleSoft.Review:
Adam Bromwich's objective in PeopleSoft HRMS Reporting is to synchronize the perspectives of technical people (PeopleSoft designers and administrators) and functional people (managers who use PeopleSoft). If technicians know what managers need and managers know what technicians can do, more productive enterprises will result. Bromwich succeeds admirably, explaining the human resources, payroll, and benefits aspects of the PeopleSoft HRMS database. Taking a table-by-table approach to the information PeopleSoft stores, the book explains each field in many of the most useful tables and details unusual formatting where it's an issue. He also explains how various pieces of data relate to one another and how best to access them. In one sense, this is a guided tour of a great big relational database.
What's neat about Bromwich's style is his frequent inclusion of workaday tricks and shortcuts for getting things done quickly and easily. These aren't the contrived "hints and tips" that characterize so many software books. Rather, they're practical procedures that the author has learned on the job as a consultant. He's also quick to clarify confusing aspects of PeopleSoft's interface, explaining, for example, that a pay run ID is not the same as a user run ID or a run control ID. He's also careful to explain how PeopleSoft has changed through its revisions, documenting how what used to be a straightforward record of U.S. Social Security numbers is now a more complex facility for handling many countries' citizen-identification systems. --David Wall
