HACKENSACK MERIDIAN

Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH), New Jersey’s largest health network, HMH was falling behind on implementing PeopleSoft PUM updates and PeopleTools patches.

  • CHALLENGE PRESENTED
  • With Peopleoft 9.2, Oracle started releasing smaller updates more often. However, as Hackensack Meridian Health discovered, frequent updates meant frequent testing. They needed a way to reduce the amount of time and effort spent on testing, without sacrificing quality or increasing risk.
  • PROPOSED SOLUTION
  • PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) libraries can contain thousands of test scripts, so SpearMC collaborated with HMH to analyze which systems and processes were the best candidates for automated testing. We then built a custom library to meet their needs. Once we complete automated testing after each update release, we provide an evaluation report that surfaces potential issues and recommends a selective adoption strategy.
  • RESULTS ACHIEVED
  • With SpearMC’s help, HMH now has a repeatable library of automated test scripts, as well as a partner to provide ongoing support and consulting so they can stay current while reducing internal labor costs. SpearMC has already saved HMH thousands of hours, and the savings will continue to grow. Now that our team has taken on the majority of testing and evaluating, HMH can redeploy resources to other valuable work.
