While we're on the topic of databases, etc., the University of New Hampshire
is in the preliminary stages of shopping around for replacements for our
financial and human resource packages and for our home-grown sponsored
research information systems. We are hoping to find one vendor that might
offer an integrated solution in all three areas.
SCT/Banner and PeopleSoft are two vendors that we are beginning to study. The
former currently has a grants module that I've been told by colleagues is not
satisfactory for comprehensive grants management. The newest product verion
is just now being implemented by campuses and holds some promise. PeopleSoft
is developING a grants module but has no product as yet.
If your institution is currently running Banner financials and/or human
resources OR PeopleSoft financials and/or human resources and you or a
colleague at your institution would be willing to share your experiences with
these products (particularly as they relate to sponsored research), please let
me know off-list. I'm trying to gather as much info as possible, and would
love to talk/e-mail with you.
