TCNJ is “LIVE” on Oracle Cloud!!

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year!  We are proud to announce that as of today TCNJ is “LIVE” on Oracle Cloud!

In 2018, TCNJ embarked on an exciting initiative to support the College’s strategic plan and enhance the campus with state of the art cloud technology.  This endeavor reinforces the College’s ongoing effort and commitment to gain operational efficiency, increase productivity, mitigate risk, and prepare for future business needs.

For nearly two years the project team has been working diligently to transform the way the College does business by aligning with higher education best practices.  This effort includes a redesign of the entire chart of accounts structure, the enhancement of numerous business processes, the development of various system integrations and the configuration of eleven Oracle Cloud modules.

The Financial systems now available on the Cloud include:

  • General Ledger and Budgetary Control

  • Procurement / Purchasing

  • Accounts Payable

  • Accounts Receivable

  • Cash Management Transmittal System

  • Fixed Assets

  • Project Portfolio Management – Grants and Capital Projects

The Human Resources systems now available on the Cloud include:

  • Core HR / Employee Self Service (replacing YESS)

  • Taleo 2020 Recruiting and Onboarding (for all hiring, including students)

  • Performance (evaluations for non-unit and grant employees)

To access Oracle Cloud use the “Cloud” link located on the TCNJ Today navigation bar and sign in using your TCNJ single sign on credentials, the same log-in information you use to access email.  For optimal user experience be sure to use either Firefox or Chrome as your web browser.

We invite you to join us for a Town Hall to learn more about TCNJ’s Oracle Cloud.  The session will feature Executive Sponsor presentations, live module demonstrations, and a panel of project leadership to answer questions.

Date:           Friday, January 17th
Session 1:    10:00am – 11:30am
Session 2:    2:00pm – 3:30pm
Location:    Library Auditorium

Please visit the Oracle Cloud Project website frequently for the latest information on topics including job aides, informational videos, event calendars and training resources.  Please note, limited user access will be provided upon go-live and additional access for certain job functions, such as purchasing and grants administration, will be granted after completion of required training.

For specific Finance related questions please email oraclecloudproj@tcnj.edu.
For specific HR related questions please email HR@tcnj.edu.

We are pleased to deliver this new technology to TCNJ and would like to thank everyone who participated in the Advisory Group and User Acceptance Testing.  We would also like to extend a special thank you to the entire project team and our implementation partners from Huron Consulting Group. Your outstanding efforts and hard work on this major milestone are greatly appreciated and made this a successful implementation.

Additional Oracle Cloud modules including Planning and Budgeting, Benefits, Absence Management, Time & Labor, and Payroll will be coming soon.  Stay tuned for more information!
