Software and Business Applications
Authority Manager is a web application that gives Stanford managers a central location to manage the systems authority their employees need to work the PeopleSoft SA, HRMS, and Oracle Financials systems. The Authority Manager maintains the authority registry, the master record of who can do what.
SALLIE (Stanford ALL-Image Exchange) is Stanford’s campus-wide system for managing and sharing digital assets (photos, videos, and other files) used in communications.
Nolij is a web-based document imaging and management solution used by departments to electronically collect, store, and manage business files online.
Essential Stanford Software is a collection of applications provided free of charge to help you plug into the Stanford University Network (SUNet) and gain access to Stanford's computing services. ESS includes applications to keep your password secure, protect against computer viruses, send and read email, and exchange files.
OpenAFS client software for both Windows (XP/2000) and Macintosh (OS X) provides an alternative to SFTP clients like SecureFX (for Windows) and Fetch (for Macintosh) for users who frequently access files in AFS space.
Oracle Business Intelligence - Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) enables you to access a full range of reporting and analysis tools, including interactive dashboards, ad hoc queries, financial reports, and search.
Stanford uses the PeopleSoft application for its Human Resources
Management and Student Administration system. Administrative users,
students, faculty, and academic advisors use the system via the Axess
site which is the portal into the PeopleSoft application. Back-end links
to and from PeopleSoft enable information to be shared across systems
including the Registry, Oracle, Kronos, ID Card, Parking &
Transportation, and others. The PeopleSoft service site contains
information about the system, how to create reports, and links to
PeopleSoft training opportunities.
Creating reports based on data in the PeopleSoft Student and HRMS system is done primarily via Stanford's Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) reporting portal.
The Software Licensing group negotiates and manages software licensing University-wide. The group's web site provides an extensive list of available software. If you don't find what you need on the list, staff will help you find the best alternative source.
Workgroup Manager is a web application that gives Stanford community members a place to define groups of community members for use in various online applications, including web authentication. Though the name workgroup may imply usefulness only to faculty or staff, workgroups can be helpful to, and maintained by, anyone with a current SUNet ID.
