The Oracle CFO (Cumulative Feature Overview) is a great starting point for users to understand the new functionality of a release they are going to be using.

The Oracle CFO tool helps you plan your upgrades by providing concise descriptions of new and enhanced solutions and functionality that have become available between your starting and target releases.

You simply identify the products you own, your existing release, and your target implementation release. With a single click, the tool quickly produces a customized set of high-level, concise descriptions of features developed between your starting and target releases.

The CFO is available for PeopleTools as well as PeopleSoft applications.

How to use the CFO tool:

    • To select ALL products, just click on >> button.
    • To remove the products from the selected Products List, select the products from Selected Products List and click on < button.
    • Use << button to remove all the products from the selected Products List.

The PeopleSoft Cumulative Feature Overview (CFO) Report is a most useful tool for you to have and run if you are interested in optimizing your current PeopleSoft system, considering upgrading to 9.2, or applying a new PUM image. The report will show you what is available in the new system and compare it to what you are missing – i.e., software sitting on the shelf or images you have not implemented yet.
