PeopleSoft goes Mobile, again

For years PeopleSoft had Mobile applications build on PeopleTools for various applications. On June 5, 2009 this got deprecated, see statement from Oracle below. But now Oracle is again taking the Mobile road, this time not using PeopleTools, but Oracle Mobile ADF. First to be released is Oracle Mobile Inventory, available for Windows Mobile, Ipad and Android, in fact all devices with a mobile browser. Hope that Oracle will incorporate Mobile in other applications too.

Importing departments and creating the Department Tree

Some while ago I was asked to import departments from a Non-PeopleSoft system and to generate the department tree for these departments. As usual you start off by looking for Vanilla solutions. What I have understood, is that the department tree is usually created manually and using the TreeManager utility TreeMover they are copied across environments. So PeopleSoft has a Vanilla solution for importing and creating department trees. However, after examining the TreeMover, which is a powerfull tool I have to admit, it is a feasible solution only if already a department tree is created manually.

Why do I say this?
