FLUID UI – one of the most talked about feature in PeopleSoft

Fluid UI

PeopleSoft as an ERP application has reached to a point where it needs to adapt the flexibility so that people can access PeopleSoft through different devices such as Smartphones and Tabs. With the release of PeopleTools 8.54, Oracle has introduced a new User Interface called “Fluid UI” which is simpler, more intuitive and works across multiple device sizes like laptops, desktops, phones, tablets etc. This interface will show content in a dynamic manner in response to the size of the screen

Dynamic & Adaptable in true sense

Using the flexibility of CSS, HTML 5 and java script, the fluid UI is said to dynamically adapt to the user’s device screen size making the fluid pages device-independent. What this means is – it provides a common user experience on variety of devices irrespective of the screen size. Through this responsive design, browser will resize itself depending on device size, be it Smartphone, tablet or laptop.

The new experiences for a user

  • Home Pages
  • Tiles
  • Global Search
  • Related actions
  • The new fluid Navigation Collection feature using which users can more easily navigate to the information most important to them.


  • Device independent
  • Gives the response based on user device
  • Can be personalized based on needs e.g. Tiles can be added or deleted from homepage based on personal needs

The fundamental feature of the Fluid Model is the Home Page which provides the base for the users to navigate and carry out the respective works. In a way Fluid home pages are similar to the classic PeopleSoft home pages but fluid model provides the end user with the new User experience that renders well on the dashboard or the home pages. Tiles/Grouplets are lifeline of Fluid UI page. Tiles help the user to navigate to a fluid page or classic PIA page.

Fluid UI has a lot of promise in it and there is much to explore if we really wish to experience it in all sense. Even though it’s a relatively a newer territory and we need to explore it, it’s worth the effort. We will be back with further details and will try to showcase its capabilities by creating something within the ‘fluid framework’.

……… Till then Stay tuned!

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Worksoft Blog – Process Intelligence: A Multi-Dimensional Approach

The ability to extract process knowledge has become easier through the years. Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
