About CAPI

How effective is your organization at managing changes made to the Application Designer Objects, File Server Objects and the functional configuration/business rules data in your PeopleSoft application?


Built using PeopleTools technology, CAPI is an end-to-end change management and version control solution that helps you to competently manage the changes made to your PeopleSoft application. CAPI directly integrates with your PeopleSoft application, which helps you to effectively plan, better manage and efficiently utilize your PeopleSoft application.Through its version control, application designer/file objects locking, workflow, migration management, CAPI enables organizations to control and enact change without disrupting business.

CAPI has many features that distinguishes itself from other similar application change management products available in the market. Using CAPI, you can now control the changes and maintain multiple version of your application designer objects, file objects, folder objects, functional configuration data, database objects and COBOL Stored Statements, all in the same change request.


More About CAPI
Change Control To process a change request, your business processes call for many specific tasks and activities that comprise your change management procedures. CAPI enables you to automate complex change management processes and implement controls that are necessary for compliance and audibility. With CAPI, task routings and notifications are automated resulting in efficient communications.

CAPI's flexibility means that you can easily model your organization's change management processes in CAPI so that you can enforce the required controls and build custom workflow tasks, routings, system codes, and approvals.
Version Control CAPI helps to reduce your support costs and mitigate the risks associated with the quality and reliability of your PeopleSoft application programs and functional configuration data. CAPI versions and stores all of the Functional Configuration Data, Application Desinger Objects, File Objects, Folder Objects, Database Objects and COBOL Stored Statements in its own repository. This reduces the risks of overwrites or lost development work by giving your team the power to immediately restore any object version without having to perform time-consuming database refreshes. In addition, CAPI prevents development conflicts by allowing your team to reserve and lock Application Designer Objects across all of your environments - making synchronization as easy as a mouse click.

Development Support CAPI supports all phases of the Application Development Lifecycle from requirements gathering, design, development, testing, deployment, and production support.

CAPI has built in features that support each of these functions in a fully integrated and efficient manner. For example, you can create and associate a business requirement document to a workflow task, associate a functional and a technical specifications to the requirements, and create test scripts. As testing is completed, application failures are reported as Issues which results in Change Requests that are processed in CAPI with code versioning, approvals, and migrations.
SOX/Regulatory Compliance CAPI enables companies to achieve SOX/regulatory compliance by enabling companies to enforce controls, implement established change management processes, and meet reporting requirements.

CAPI delivers a powerful and dynamic reporting platform using which the customers can choose what to print and how to print. The customers will also have the option to explode the attachments directly inside the document. This means, if you had stored 3rd party email approvals, requirements document, design documents and other related documents inside the change request, those attachments will be exploded automatically inside the report.

 - you can use the internal resources to either customize the product or develop additional reports
Operating System independent - CAPI´s application server and process scheduler can be configured on Windows/Unix/Linux/Solaris or any other operating system certified to work with your PeopleTools version Most of the application change management products for PeopleSoft delivers a feature to automatically build the project (or record definition) in the target environment as a part of the deployment. To build the project in the target environment, these products shall internally invoke the application designer; this directly creates a dependency on the operating system in which the product can either be installed or its services configured.

This further means that, if you have your existing PeopleSoft application configured in either a Linux or Unix operating system, then you´ll end-up purchasing additional hardware and Windows operating system license.

Whereas CAPI delivers a feature using which you can configure CAPI´s application server and process scheduler in any operating system certified to work with your PeopleTools verion and still have CAPI to build project automatically in the target environment.

This means, with CAPI, you will not end-up purchasing either new hardware and additional operating system license, instead you can leverage your existing hardware infrastructure and operating system license to configure CAPI´s application server and process scheduler in UNIX/Linux/Solaris/Windows operating systems.
A single instance of CAPI can support multiple PeopleTools versions If you have multiple PeopleTools versions installed, then, with most of the application change management products for PeopleSoft you will have to either purchase additional product license and/or install additional instances.

For example, say that you have FSCM in PT8.52 and HCM in PT8.54; then, with some of our competitor products you will have to purchase additional product license and install two instances of the product (per the example - one for FSCM and another for HCM), because they simply do not support multiple PeopleTools versions.

Whereas, a single installation of CAPI can work across multiple PeopleTools versions; this means you don´t have to purchase any additional product license.

Additionally, using CAPI, the stakeholders (including the developers, testers, managers, etc) can access the single of CAPI instance to work on the change requests belonging to all the PeopleSoft applications running on multiple PeopleTools versions.
Version Control Functional Configuration Data mcAMDOIS takes pride to be the first vendor to introduce this imperative feature to version control functional configuration data. After we introduced this feature, some of the competitors had tried to deliver a similar feature; however CAPI still has the distinction on the ease-of-use, efficiency, security, versioning, migration and rollback aspects of this feature.

In our competitor products, to check-in a version of the functional configuration data changes, one has to write data mover scripts and run these scripts as part of the migration. The problem with this approach is that, PeopleSoft maintains several vital information as a part of the configuration pages, which must never and ever be updated in the production database at any point in time. Additionally, these products does not deliver any quick way to rollback the changes made to functional configuration data.

Whereas CAPI delivers a easy-to-use and secured solution to version control, migrate and rollback functional configuration data. With CAPI, you don´t have to write any data mover script to check-in and migrate the changes made to the functional configuration data. CAPI handles functional configuration data as individual objects and stores multiple versions of them in its own version repository.
Version Control Non-PeopleSoft Object Types While most of the application change management products for PeopleSoft delivers the functionality to version control PeopleTools Objects (including File Objects), CAPI travels the extra mile.

Using CAPI, you can version control Folder Objects (including the files and sub-folders inside a folder object), COBOL Stored Statements and Database Objects (like stored procedures, functions, etc), migrate the changes to one or more target environments and also do either a complete or selective rollback as well.
Schedule DBA/Migration Scripts Whenever a change request is deployed into the target environment, it is a common requirement to have the deployment process to automatically run the DBA or migration scripts. For example, either during the migration or rollback there may be a need to run SQL/DMS/Shell/BAT scripts either before and/or after the migration.

In order to implement an effective internal control procedure, the auditors wants the DBA´s to maintain a complete log of the scripts run, who approved the scripts to be run, when the scripts were run and what data got affected by the scripts, etc (ie., when, what, who). Architect does not address this requirement to capture the scripts output and the DBA’s are required to maintain the log manually.

Using CAPI, you can schedule any number of SQL/DMS/Shell/BATscripts and any combination of these scripts and most importantly configure the run order in which the scripts must be run as a part of either a migration or rollback. When scheduling the data mover scripts, you will get the additional option to have the script executed either in a user mode or bootstrap mode.

As a part of running these scheduled scripts automatically in the target environment (or any other source environment), CAPI will automatically capture the script and script output and store the same as a part of the migration history. You can inquire on both the script and script output any time and also generate a report on the same for your auditing requirements.
Release Management In most of the organizations there may be requirement to schedule monthly release, quarterly release, half-yearly release, minor release, major release, etc in addition to the regular change requests. It may be required for a change request to be tagged with a particular release with the option to either be processed individually or to be rescheduled as a part of another release.

While some of the application change management products for PeopleSoft does not deliver any feature, CAPI delivers an effective release management feature to address this imperative business requirement.

Using CAPI´s release management feature, you can tag a change request to a particular release, reschedule the same to a different release or process the change request individually as well. The release can be scheduled to run at a particular date and time and can be deployed to one or more target environments, in parallel.
Database Connectivity - CAPI leverages PeopleSoft delivered Java packages and does not use neither database links nor staging database For establishing database connectivity to an environment, some of our competitor products use database links (linking to be setup between our competitor product´s database and all the other database instances in the migration path - including the production database instance).

It is globally agreed fact that database links are prone for performance issues and security issues. The general advice from known security administrators is to refrain from creating any database links, in particular, to the production database.

Additionally, in some of the application change management products for PeopleSoft, you may find them using a "Staging Database", either to version or migrate the change request. It is quite a common phenomenon for the objects to get “struck” in this staging database; which has to be "debugged" to retrieve the "struck" object.

As you may agree, it would make sense for a product developed using PeopleTools technology to leverage what is already delivered with the technology instead of using other issues-prone alternatives. CAPI has been meticulously designed to leverage PeopleSoft delivered Java API´s to establish database connection to all the database in the migration path, making it safe and secured.
Deploy and Rollback version either online or offline While most of the application change management products for PeopleSoft does not provide the option to schedule its process either online or offline, CAPI delivers the option to schedule majority of the delivered processes to run either online or offline.

For example, using CAPI, you can schedule a migration request to automatically run at a particular date and time - say, on Sunday, 7:00AM. Similarly, you can schedule other processes (like versioning, rollback, etc) to automatically run at a particular date and time.
Selective Data Refresh During the day-to-day production support, there may be tickets which may be data related production issues.

For example, say, the PeopleSoft support team receives ticket saying that one of the voucher is not getting picked by the PayCycle process in Financials application. The root cause of the issue may not be in the PayCycle Application Engine process, per say, but may be due to the voucher data or payment data or other data related issue. In order to debug such a kind of issue, the PeopleSoft Support may wish to get a copy of the production data in any of the downstream instances, so that they can debug the issue to find out the root cause.

Depending on the volume of data, traditionally you would either write a data mover/SQL script (after painstakingly identifying the underlying tables) or refresh the downstream instance with a copy of the entire production database (if the data volume is relatively high). As we would agree, either of these approaches are time consuming and whenever there is such a kind of production issue, the business would want the PeopleSoft Support team to provide a resolution ASAP.

CAPI provides a helping hand to quickly resolve such a kind business critical data related production issues. Using CAPI´s Selective Data Refresh feature, you can very quickly get a copy of selected data copied from production database into any of the downstream database instances and immediately get to the business of resolving the issue - without waiting for the entire database to be refreshed or write data mover/SQL scripts.

CAPI´s Selective Data Refresh feature has been meticulously designed to deliver a high performance while working on a large volume of data. The in-built multi-threading process (for load balancing) will equally distribute the load across the threads, thereby delivering a high performance without disrupting the business.

Selective Data Refresh is a trendsetter feature which is available in CAPI ONLY and not in any other application change management products, for PeopleSoft, available in the market.
Environment Refresh Once in a while it may be required to refresh any of the downstream database instance with a copy of the production database. In most of the organizations, the PeopleSoft Administrator´s would take a backup of some of the PeopleTools data (like Security, Process Scheduler settings, IB settings, etc) and import the same after the database refresh is completed. It is a classic business scenario, that may occur frequently is some organizations, where it is required to preserve some of the PeopleTools data or application data after a complete database refresh. Additionally, in HCM or other PeopleSoft applications, it may be required to scramble the data in the downstream database instance after a complete database refresh.

While some of the application change management products for PeopleSoft delivers the feature to do a complete database refresh; none of them helps you to preseve PeopleTools data or application data in the target database instance and also run data scramble script post refresh.

CAPI is a delivered with an unique Environment Refresh feature (which is a trendsetter in its kind), using which you can specify the rules to define what data needs to be preserved after a complete database refresh and also schedule the data scramble scripts to scramble the data post refresh. CAPI´s Environment Refresh feature has been meticulously designed to deliver a high performance while working on a large volume of data. The in-built multi-threading process (for load balancing) will equally distribute the load across the threads, thereby delivering a high performance without disrupting the business.

Severity Definition
Severity 1 Your production use of the supported programs is stopped or so severely impacted that you cannot reasonably continue work. You experience a complete loss of service. The operation is mission critical to the business and the situation is an emergency. A Severity 1 service request has one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Data corrupted
  • A critical documented functionality is not available
  • System hangs indefinitely, causing unacceptable or indefinite delays for resources or response
  • System crashes, and crashes repeatedly after restart attempts

Severity 2 You experience a severe loss of service. Important features are unavailable with no acceptable workaround; however, operations can continue in a restricted fashion.

Severity 3 You experience a minor loss of service. The impact is an inconvenience, which may require a workaround to restore functionality.

Severity 4 You request information, an enhancement, or documentation clarification regarding your software but there is no impact on the operation of the software. You experience no loss of service. The result does not impede the operation of a system.

What´s up with Functional Configuration Data?
At mcAMDOIS, we continuously challenge our competitors through our innovative ideas and technological advancements. mcAMDOIS takes pride in delivering this unique and trendsetter featur to address an imperative business requirement; that is to control the changes made to PeopleSoft Functional Configuration Data (i.e., your SETID, Business Unit setup data) and also to maintain one or more versions of the same online. From your PeopleSoft experience, you might have seen instances where the functional administrator had inadvertently changed the SETID data directly in the production environment, causing severe impact to the business.

Any uncontrolled change to the functional configuration will severely impact the business. Any changes to the setup data MUST be controlled and it has to follow through the standard Software Development Lifecyle process, which will make your PeopleSoft application 100% regulatory compliance.


Traditionally, any changes to the functional configuration data will be done using one of the following methods:

  • Directly update the setup data via the online pages,

  • Write SQL scripts to insert or update the setup data directly using the SQL query tool,

  • Migrate the setup data from the development or test environments using Data Mover Scripts.
With these traditional methods, the functional configuration data are vulnerable to data integrity issues and/or data loss.

  • you don't have a process to keep track of the change - who changed it, what was changed and when it was changed,

  • there are no easy ways to rollback the changes, if needed,

  • if the setup data are migrated using either method a or method b above - any slight mistake in the script will severely impact the entire business process; these are very high risk methods.

Answer these questions

  • Do you have any automated process to maintain multiple versions of the configuration data that you had setup?

  • Did you ever wished that you are provided an easy option to restore your previous/old configuration version, instead of depending on PeopleSoft development team or DBA to restore the data for you?

  • Did you ever wished that you could very easily pull a report on the changes made the functional configuration data; either for your management or for your auditors?

Solution In our perception, a Change Management and Version Control application for PeopleSoft cannot be complete, if it does not provide version control for the functional configuration or the business rules data. Using CAPI, any changes made to the functional configuration data can be first done in the development instance, tested, UAT´d, approved by functional owners before moving the changes into the production. With a proper change management mechanism, like CAPI in place, for all the users you can remove the update/display privileges to functional configuration data setup pages and make them as read-only, so as to comply with SOX/regulatory compliance.
CAPI for PeopleSoft Version Control
CAPI helps to reduce your support costs and mitigate the risks associated with the quality and reliability of your PeopleSoft application programs and functional configuration data. CAPI versions and stores all of the Functional Configuration Data, Application Designer Objects and File Server Objects in its own repository. This reduces the risks of overwrites or lost development work by giving your team the power to immediately restore any object version without having to perform time-consuming database refreshes. In addition, CAPI prevents development conflicts by allowing your team to reserve and lock Application Designer Objects across all of your environments - making synchronization as easy as a mouse click.


Since a PeopleSoft database can only contain the latest version of an object, a change management product should be capable of storing multiple versions of objects with full recovery capabilities. During development stage of the change request, you may take a backup of the application designer objects and file server objects. You may be restoring different version at a future stage. It is imperative that all the development work are backed up automatically to ensure that not even a single piece of development work are lost, due to any unforesee reasons or human errors. CAPI captures and stores an unlimited number of versions taken during development, which archives any combination of functional configuration data/application designer objects/files in each version. This reduces the risks of overwrites or lost development work by giving your team the power to immediately restore any object version without having to perform time consuming database refreshes. CAPI prevents development conflicts by allowing your team to reserve and lock Application Designer objects across all of the configured PeopleSoft environments.

Highlights
  • Add Application Designer Objects either individually or from a project definition
  • Add File Server Objects - using XCopy, FTP and SFTP for connectivity
  • Synchronize project definition
  • View object properties online
  • View object history online
  • View object lock history online
  • View object pending lock requests online
 
  • Create Version Sets either online or offline to run at a scheduled date and time
  • Schedule to automatically create a version set or backup the development work at a specific date and time
  • Create the Version Set with either all or selected objects in the change request
  • Override Object´s Upgrade Action while creating the version set
  • Filter and view the objects in a version set

CAPI - Deployment/Migration Process

Problem The migration process needs to be simplified and managed properly in order to eliminate the risk of unintended changes. After a customized object is tested in a development environment, the change needs to be migrated from one database to another. A change may need to pass through a series of databases before it finally becomes part of the production environment. It is advantageous for a PeopleSoft change management tool to support multiple, complex migration paths.

For example, a major change may migrate to a user acceptance environment prior to production, while a bug fix may go more directly to production due to its urgent nature. Naturally, the change management tool must allow you to select the correct migration path for the particular change. Given support for migration paths, an effective tool should check all databases on the path for object availability, providing developers with immediate visibility of object conflicts. An accessible audit trail of all changes and migrations affecting database and program objects is the primary reason for implementing a change management tool.
Solution CAPI delivers a one-click version migration process. CAPI allows you to automate the migration process by combining Functional Configuration Data, Application Designer Objects, File Server Objects, and Scripts all together within the same Change Request. By clicking a single button, the PeopleTools objects will be migrated to the predefined database and the files to the predefined directories on the predefined servers. There are no additional user credentials to specify nor need to know the source files reside or target directories reside.

You can migrate change request online, offline, schedule it to run at a specified date and time or as part of a release. You will also have the option whether to run the migration scripts or not.

In addition, CAPI's ability to execute DMS and SQL scripts allow you to perform all these script executions from the browser without having to launch another application. All the migration logs and script execution logs are automatically attached to the Change Request so that you have a central location for all the activities that occurred during the migration.

Highlights
  • Choose whether to run uploaded migration scripts or not
  • Build Project in Target using either Application Designer or Data Mover
  • Migrate Version Sets either online, offline or as part of a release
  • Rollback Migration either online or offline at a scheduled date and time
  • View migration/rollback scripts and scripts output online

CAPI - Release Management
In a typical PeopleSoft implementation, the request for changes may be taken up and deployed into production as a part of monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, minor or major release. You may create one or more change requests for a release and deploy this release into the target system. CAPI helps you with the release planning to deploy the release all the way to the production.

The release definition can be deployed to one or more target database instances in parallel. In order to deploy the release, enter the migration parameters; select the run date and time and then click on the Schedule push button. Once scheduled, the release will be processed via the process scheduler and you can verify the run status either in the Release Schedules grid or in the process monitor.

Highlights
  • One or more change request can be tagged to a release
  • Edit the run order in which the change requests must be deployed
  • Schedule the migration scripts to be run automatically
  • Schedule the release to be processed at a particular date and time
  • Deploy the release to one or more target database instance

CAPI - Compare Reports

Problem For a very long time it has been each and every developers dream to see the compare reports that makes most sense to them.

For example, in some of the other similar products available in the market, the compare reports displays the records (or rows) directly from the PeopleSoft System Catalogue (meta-data tables like PSRECDEFN, PSRECFIELD, etc).

Since, PeopleSoft encodes several of the application designer object types, a direct display of data from the PeopleSoft System Catalogue, will not be useful in a real time environment.

For example, in a record definition if a field is set with prompt table edit, the PSRECFIELD.USEEDIT field may contain the value 16384 (if there are other field edits set for this field, then, the value may change accordingly). Both from a developer and auditor perspective, if the value 16384 is displayed in the compare reports, it will not make any sense.
Solution CAPI's compare reports has been meticulously designed to show the details in a format that makes sense to the users (let it be developers, auditors, etc). Using CAPI's compare reports, the users will see the data as they would see it in the application designer.

In CAPI, a record definition will be grouped in as 'Fields Display', 'Use Display', 'Edits Display' and 'PeopleCode Display'. All the record fields will be displayed from the versions that are being compared with all the encoded PeopleSoft System Catalogue values decoded. For example, in the 'Fields Display' tab the field type of a record field will be displayed as 'Number', 'Character', etc and in the 'PeopleCode Display' tab, all the PeopleCode events will be displayed. Moreover, you will have the option to see the PeopleCode online from the compare reports itself. To view the PeopleCode online, all you have to do is to click on the tick mark of any record PeopleCode event.

Again, CAPI has been meticulously designed to show compare reports in such sensible format for all the Application Designer Objects.

CAPI - Workflow Process

Problem An effective change management tool for PeopleSoft enforces documentation of activities relevant to the change. The initial request, the design, the development, the testing results, and the approvals are some of the activities that should be documented. The change management system needs to be able to manage all documentation from the initial specification to the implementation scripts used to migrate to production. Additionally, the change management solution should record information on relevant database administration tasks that have been performed, such as migrations, recoveries, object updates, etc. It needs to become your primary PeopleSoft management tool so that when you need information, it is available immediately. Documentation should be robust and readily available. When preparing for an upgrade, the change management tool needs to be able to report on every change that has been made to your PeopleSoft application with 100% accuracy.

A policy for security and workflow should be complemented with a mechanism for approvals to authorize change. In fact, approvals may be an activity in the workflow. Change flowing through the process may reach several critical points that may require business-level approvals before continuing. Approvals provide check-and-balance controls. Once a change has been developed and unit tested, system testers must validate the change without hampering standard and customized functionality. System testers must approve before the change continues through the change process. Business owners may also need to provide their approval before a change can be moved to the production environment.
Solution CAPI includes a workflow engine for defining the lifecycle of change. Workflow defines the lifecycle for change according to rules, activities and relationship defined by the organization.

The organization defines workflows to fit the business, and CAPI enforces these rules with each change. Workflows can also be defined to control patch activities. Workflow is essential for patch management to ensure issues are researched before a patch is applied and that every patch is fully tested.

CAPI enables far greater reporting and control with respect to your change management processes. CAPI allows you to enrich your change management related information and broaden your organization's access to it. All while systematically addressing approvals, routings, and notifications. This flexibility means that you can easily tailor change management tasks, system codes, routings, and approvals based upon organizational, even team-specific needs.

CAPI´s approval process leverages PeopleSoft Roles. You will have to create one or more PeopleSoft Roles for the approving the users. CAPI provides the flexibility to select the list of users in the Approval Role who can approve the change. CAPI delivers both user based approval and role based approval. For example, you can define either specific user(s) from an approval role to approve or to have any user from an approval role to approve.

CAPI provides the flexibility to store and retrieve one or more document at the workflow task level. CAPI stores the documents in its own repository.

Highlights
  • Fully Configurable Workflow to Model your Change Management Processes - 100% Customizable
  • Workflow status based security - Control access to change request pages based on the workflow status. For example, when the workflow is in the UAT status, you may want to restrict the developers from the making any changes (like adding/removing objects) to the change request.
  • Enforcement of required approvals
  • Configure both Role based and User based approvals
  • Create workflow with either user defined tasks or no tasks at all.
  • Define required tasks that must be completed to move from one workflow step to another
  • Document Repository - Attach one or more documents to a workflow task
  • Enforcement to attach documents to workflow tasks

CAPI - Migration/DBA Scripts

Running scripts as part of your migration is a feature unique to CAPI. Using CAPI, you can schedule one or more SQL/DMS/Shell/BAT scripts that need to be run automatically either before or after migration.

Say, you are converting data from mainframe/legacy system and configuring a new Business Unit and are developing few custom pages for this new business unit in PeopleSoft. As part of configuring this new Business Unit, consider that you have the following simple requirement to run additional data conversion and DBA scripts as part of the migration:

  • Run a Windows batch program before migration, to get/fetch the raw data from your mainframe/legacy application.
  • Run one or more pre-data conversion SQL scripts and/or Data Mover (DMS) scripts, before migration.
  • Run fine tuned create table and alter table SQL scripts, after migration.
  • Run one or more post-data conversion SQL scripts and/or Data Mover (DMS) scripts, after migration.

Other change management applications currently available in the market, will allow you to migrate the application designer objects only and some may allow you to run the SQL scripts after migration.

Traditionally, the above tasks will be done with manual intervention every time the change is migrated. We believe that any migration task should be automatic without any kind of manual intervention.

Using CAPI you will now have the option of running those SQL/DMS/Shell/BAT scripts automatically as a part of migration. You will also have the option to run the SQL/DMS/BAT scripts before or after moving the objects (including business unit setup data, application designer objects and file server objects) found in the change request.

As a part of the migration CAPI will run the scripts in the order you have setup and stores the scripts that was run and the script output in its own repository. This further gives the flexibility to modify and test the scripts with every migration (until your final migration to production) and also to keep track on the scripts that was run with each migration requests. Yet another powerful feature of CAPI is that, when you print the Change Request, you will have the option to print the scripts and its output in the Change Request report, which will help you to provide accurate and pertinent information regarding the change request migration to your auditors.

Highlights
  • Run SQL/DMS/BAT/Shell scripts - both before and after migration
  • Select the database in which the scripts must be run.
  • Define exclusive scripts to run during migrations and rollback
  • Track and control the scripts run in production.
  • View uploaded scripts online
  • View script output online
  • Various versions of the scripts run along with a migration or rollback will be stored in scripts repository
CAPI - Selective Data Refresh

Problem Yet another trendsetter feature of CAPI and first of its kind is to selectively refresh the application data between your PeopleSoft environments. In any PeopleSoft installation, there may be a requirement to copy/refresh the application data from either your production or UAT environment into the downstream environments.

Consider that you have a production issue, say the pay cycle (in Financials product suite, Accounts Payables module) is not processing a particular payment. In such a case, you may wish to get the voucher data alone as-is from the production environment and get it loaded into your development/test environment to debug the issue; as the issue pertains to that single voucher and not the paycycle process itself.

Consider yet another scenario where you need get a copy of all the data for a particular BUSINESS_UNIT and/or SETID. Most of the time, in such a case, you will request your DBA to get you a copy of production database in one of your development/test databases.

In most of the PeopleSoft installations, when such requirements arises, the customers would normally tend to take a backup of the entire production database and get it restored on top of the development/test environment. Very few PeopleSoft customers has developed a set of SQL/data mover script or a custom bolt-on application that would export the application data from the production database and import the same into the downstream environments. Since the development/test environments are not usually secured like the production environment, either of the above approaches may breach the security setup or the internal control procedure. From an auditing/regulatory standpoint, it is a very clear violation to say that the development/test environment looks exactly the same as the production environment (say, right after a database refresh), but is not as much secured as the production environment.

Contact us now to watch a live demo of this unique Selective Data Refresh feature. The live demo will help you to understand how this feature can help you to streamline the data refresh procedure, stop performing those time consuming database refreshes and, most importantly, drastically cut-down on the production issue response time.
Solution Well, CAPI addresses this very important requirement by delivering a simple, easy-to-use but a powerful feature using which you can selectively refresh the application data between the environments and also keep track of when the data was refreshed, what data was refreshed, who refreshed the application data and most importantly who approved the data refresh.

With the introduction of this trendsetter feature, to resolve a data issue in the production database, you NO LONGER HAVE TO PERFORM any of the following tasks, which you normally used to do:

  • Shutdown production database to take a hot database backup
  • Run the export dump of production database, which would normally run long hours in a high volume database
  • Restore the database from the backup or import from the datadump, which would run for several hours
  • Re-apply the security
  • Depending on the DBA´s availability


Using CAPI´s selective data refresh feature, you can perform the following within no time:

  • Refresh selective data, either bulk of records (say, all vouchers in a business unit) or a single record (say, a particular voucher)
  • Run the selective data refresh online
  • Schedule to run the selective data refresh at a particular date and time
  • Capture and store manager´s approval
  • From an audit trail perspective, track when the data was refreshed, who authorized the refresh and who performed the data refresh
  • Any valid user can run the data refresh, without depending on DBA´s availability


Most importantly, if you normally used to run any data scrambling script (say, after database refresh of your HCM database), you can have those scripts to be automatically run post data refresh in CAPI now. This, obviously, will help your database refresh procedure to be SOX/regulatory compliant.

CAPI´s selective data refresh feature has been meticulously designed to deliver a high performance while working on a large volume of data. The in-built multi-threading process (for load balancing) will equally distribute the load across the threads, thereby delivering a high performance.
CAPI - Change Management Reports

CAPI enables companies to achieve SOX/regulatory compliance by enabling companies to enforce controls, implement established change management processes, and meet reporting requirements. CAPI is delivered with a powerful reporting platform that shows the effectiveness of the controls you have implemented. The main focus of CAPI reports is to insure that the controls you have placed in your change management process is being adhered. Using CAPI's dynamic reporting, the customers can choose what they want to see in the reports. CAPI delivers both Summary and Detailed reports.

  • Summary Reports: This is a MS-Excel based formatted report, with each issue or change request printed on one excel row. Please note that this is a XLS format report and not a CSV format report. These reports will come in handy during the IT status meeting.
  • Detailed Reports: This is a MS-Word based formatted report, with one section per issue or change request. You will have the option to explode the attachments directly inside the document or as an icon link to the document. This means, if you had stored the email approvals, design and specification documents and other related documents inside the change request, those attachments will be exploded inside the document. For example, during the year-end audit, you can print this report with attachments exploded. The report will contain all the information (provided if the required documents are attached) the auditors would like to see.

In addition to the above dynamic reporting, CAPI also delivers the traditional SQR Reports, XML Publisher reports (available on PeopleTools 8.48 version or higher), Queries, etc.

Highlights
  • SOX Compliance Reports
  • Custom Report Builder
  • Design what to print and how to print
  • Custom Report Builder
  • Report in MS-Word and MS-Excel (XLS) format
  • Integration with PS Query

  • Automatically explode stakeholder approvals sent via email
  • Automatically explode the scripts and script output run as part of migrations
  • Online, Real-Time Issue and Change Request Inquiry
  • XML Publisher Reports
Choose What to Print
We do not believe in delivering tens and hundreds of reports, as the reporting requirements differ from customer to customer. Instead, we deliver a single powerful reporting platform using which you can choose what you want see in your reports. Define any number of reporting templates that you may need and choose the sections and fields to print in each report template.


Choose How to Print
It is very common for the organizations to setup the document and reporting standards. With any other change management products available in the market, you are struck to use the layout and format that are delivered. But, with CAPI you can design your own layout and even choose the font styles to use.


CAPI - SOX/Regulatory Compliance

Key sections of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 require public companies to provide greater "internal controls", auditing capability and real-time reporting for their financial systems. Section 404 is by far the most important to IT managers and employees as it addresses directly the underlying control systems such as PeopleSoft Financials. Section 404, effectively requires public firms to 'establish and maintain internal control structures and procedures for financials reporting' and 'report on the effectiveness of the internal control structure'. According to The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), internal control is defined as:

Internal control is broadly defined as a process, effected by an entity's board of directors, management and other personnel, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of objectives in the following categories:

  • Effectiveness and efficiency of operations.
  • Reliability of financial reporting.
  • Compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

The first category addresses an entity's basic business objectives, including performance and profitability goals and safeguarding of resources. The second relates to the preparation of reliable published financial statements, including interim and condensed financial statements and selected financial data derived from such statements, such as earnings releases, reported publicly. The third deals with complying with those laws and regulations to which the entity is subject. These distinct but overlapping categories address different needs and allow a directed focus to meet the separate needs.

Internal control systems operate at different levels of effectiveness. Internal control can be judged effective in each of the three categories, respectively, if the board of directors and management have reasonable assurance that:

  • They understand the extent to which the entity's operations objectives are being achieved.
  • Published financial statements are being prepared reliably.
  • Applicable laws and regulations are being complied with.

While internal control is a process, its effectiveness is a state or condition of the process at one or more points in time.

How CAPI helps you to achieve SOX compliance?
There are no organizations or groups recognized by any U.S. government entities that certify software as being SOX compliant. Instead, application change management software like CAPI is a tool that aids companies achieve SOX compliance by providing the mechanisms by which companies can enforce controls, implement established change management processes, and meet reporting requirements.

The table below lists some of the principles/practices that are enabled by CAPI and are utilized by companies to meet the standards set forth by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation:

 SOX Section 404 Principles/Practices mcAMDOIS CAPI
Segregation of Duties - roles and responsibilities are segregated to prevent conflicts of interest, risk of fraud, and enables better checks and balances.

Gated Processes - implementation of controls to prevent continuation of the process until pre-requisite process is completed such as manager approval or system testing.

Auditing Capability - ability to capture and report on historical record of all changes including who, when, what, and why.
Real Time Monitoring and Tracking - ability to track and monitor the entire life cycle of a change request in real time.

Analysis of Results - periodic and regular operational reviews, metrics, and other key performance indicators (KPI's).

IT Security - implementation of proper security to prevent unauthorized access to data.

Code Versioning - backup versions of code during development and prior to migrations to enable rollback and prevent loss of work.

Reporting on Effectiveness of Controls - ability to report on process exceptions, security violations, and violations to implemented controls.

Segregation of Duties - CAPI's workflow feature coupled with row level security allows organizations to define custom change management processes that segregate tasks depending on the role. This allows the separation of tasks among developers, testers, migrators, and approvers. You can now enforce policies in which the developer who made the code change does not have the ability to perform the migration of that code change.

Gated Processes - Gated processes can be defined within CAPI workflow to require pre-requisite tasks to be completed before the change management process can continue. Thus, you can require and enforce successful testing, proper documentation, and manager approval prior to a migration task.

Auditing Capability - CAPI is the central repository for all the activities associated with incidents and change requests. Detailed transactional data such as whom, what, and when a migration was performed is captured by CAPI and this information is accessible via online pages or delivered reports.

Real Time Monitoring and Tracking - CAPI's flexible reporting and query capabilities allow for monitoring of activities in the system from high-level management statistics to the detailed issues and change request tasks that are on-going. The Issue/Change Request Tracker provides an easy search and navigation point to everything going on in the system with the ability to drill into detail transactions.

Analysis of Results - The detailed historical information accumulated in the CAPI repository provides the opportunity to analyze performance across numerous metrics including average time to resolution, statistical counts by type of requests, by functional areas, priority, specific users and time-frames. Queries and reports can be developed to provide timely analysis of the Key Performance Indicators for your organization.

Information Technology Security - CAPI is tightly coupled with the PeopleSoft infrastructure and security which results in an industry-proven security solution. In addition, security within CAPI has been extended to include row-level permissions to enable organizations to implement security solutions that are highly flexible with a greater granularity.

Code Versioning - One of the main features of CAPI is the ability to version all Functional Configuration Data, Application Designer Objects and File Server Objects. Code versioning can be built into your change management process to allow easy back out of code changes after a migration. Detailed information on each historical version of the object is easily accessible using online pages and you have the ability to revert back to any previous version of that code object.

Reporting - CAPI is delivered with a powerful reporting platform that show the effectiveness of the controls you have implemented. The main focus of CAPI reports is to insure that the controls you have placed in your change management process is being adhered.

CAPI - Hardware and Software Requirements

Since CAPI is built using PeopleTools technology, there are no hardware and software requirements specific to CAPI installation. CAPI's hardware and software requirements are same as the hardware and software requirements of installing a PeopleSoft environment. Refer to the Hardware and Software requirements documentation of your PeopleTools version for more information.

The technical architecture of CAPI is same as your PeopleSoft Internet Architecture. CAPI's application server can installed in Windows, Unix and Linux operating systems. However, if you have a non-Oracle database and if you are planning to use CAPI's Build Project feature, then, it is imperative that the CAPI's application server is installed in a Windows based operating system only.

Supported Platforms

CAPI is certified to be installed and run on the following PeopleTools versions:

        8.41, 8.42, 8.43, 8.44, 8.45, 8.46, 8.47, 8.48, 8.49, 8.50, 8.51, 8.52, 8.53, 8.54, 8.55, 8.56.

The certified Database Server, Operating System, Web-Server and Third-Party products are governed by the certification of your PeopleTools version.

At this time, CAPI is certified to be installed and run on the following RDBMS ONLY:

        Oracle
        Microsoft SQL Server
