PUM Upgrade Overview

On Dec. 10–13, the UCPath will receive some new features and fixes as part of the PUM upgrade cutover. This upgrade brings UCPath up to the current version of Oracle PeopleSoft Human Capital Management System.  

Since UCPath was introduced in the UC System, the upgrades had been paused for the duration of the phased rollout across all UC locations. During that time, UCPath fell behind on 20 Oracle system upgrades. The PUM upgrade enables UCPath to catch up to the current version, which improves stability, expands functionality and reduces security risks. This upgrade enables UCPath to get current and stay current.  

What does the PUM upgrade mean for UC Davis? 

While the PUM upgrade does not impact the employee experience in UCPath Online, those who regularly use Workforce Administration (WFA) and ePerformance will notice a few of the new features and fixes. The following table provides a comparison between current state and future state, after the PUM upgrade is complete.
