Human Resource Systems Support

Service Owner: Irene Sanderson

NIU’s Division of Information Technology (DoIT) implements, maintains and supports NIU’s core human resource systems. These applications include:

  • PeopleSoft Interaction Hub to support the MyNIU portal.
  • PeopleSoft Human Capital Management modules for Human Resources and Payroll.
  • the Civil Service database on a SQL Server with Microsoft Access.

In addition, NIU owns but has not implemented PeopleSoft modules for Time and Labor, eProfile, and ePerformance.

The PeopleSoft Human Capital Management modules are monitored with automatic alerts on the database via the Enterprise Manager, but the web and application servers are not actively monitored. The current project to implement the Oracle Exalogic Engineered System of integrated storage, compute, network, operating system and software products will allow for active monitoring across the PeopleSoft Human Resource ecosystem.

All faculty and staff have access to HR Self-Service through the MyNIU portal at In addition, job changes create triggers for certain actions (e.g. hire, re-hire, etc.) that are read by eDirectory to create employee account ids, email accounts and HR System Self-Service accounts.
