Consolidated PeopleSoft HR System (CHRS) Coming in 2015
The CSU is upgrading and consolidating its PeopleSoft HR systems over the next two years, much like they consolidated the Finance systems a few years ago. The new database is called CHRS and San José State is currently scheduled to move to the new environment in April, 2015. There will be a lot of information coming in the next year and a half but here are a few critical items to note:
- Data from all 23 campuses, plus the Chancellor's Office, will be in one database.
- The HR database will be separate from the Student database. Systems will be put in place to keep personal data in synch.
- Security will be put in place to ensure only SJSU employees see SJSU data, with the exception of staff in the Chancellor's Office.
- Processes will change, and training and documentation will be provided to ensure a smooth transition.
