SAN RAMON, CA. /Newswire/ – Appsian – Formerly GreyHeller today announced that Stony Brook University has gone into live production with Appsian’s PeopleMobile™ mobile app for Oracle® PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. The mobile solution for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows smartphones and tablets enables students to view important information on-the-go and supplements the computer workstation self-service capabilities.

According to Frances Dykstra, Stony Brook University’s Associate CIO, “PeopleMobile™ allows Stony Brook University students access to a set of Oracle® PeopleSoft Campus Solutions capabilities – both standard PeopleSoft functionality and SBU customizations – to be accessed from smartphones. We expect PeopleMobile’s design to minimize the amount of ongoing maintenance required of SBU’s technical staff. Appsian’s security system, ERP Firewall, which is embedded in PeopleMobile™, was a bonus. Used by PeopleMobile™ to detect a user’s device, it also provides an additional layer of security on top of PeopleSoft. A bonus feature is the ERP Firewall’s extensive logging and auditing of both mobile and non-mobile access to PeopleSoft enabling us to see how Oracle® PeopleSoft applications are being used.”

PeopleMobile™ optimizes any PeopleSoft pages and customizations for display on smartphones. PeopleMobile™ simplifies common mobile application development by eliminating the need to develop individual mobile renditions of every PeopleSoft page/customization for every mobile device. PeopleMobile™ leverages Appsian’s proprietary security algorithms to prevent security breaches while providing detail logging of mobile and workstation access to PeopleSoft.

Hendrix Bodden, Appsian’s CEO, said “Stony Brook University conducted a rigorous evaluation of vendors of mobile functionality for PeopleSoft. Their selection of Appsian confirms the power and flexibility of PeopleMobile™ and the strength and value of our security system, ERP Firewall. We believe that Stony Brook’s selection and implementation of PeopleMobile™ and ERP Firewall confirms Appsian as the gold standard for Oracle® PeopleSoft mobile and security technology.”

Stony Brook will be presenting a session on their mobile project at the HEUG Alliance 2013 Conference in Indianapolis, March 17-20, 2013
