The WalkMe Browser Extension Requirement

Technical staff can find information here about the WalkMe requirement at UC San Diego and information about deploying the WalkMe Browser Extension on all university work computers. 

Requirement Background

The WalkMe service team was tasked with designing a possible solution for the following problem: 

Problem: In Oracle Financials Cloud (OFC), users are submitting transactions with incomplete POET data. OFC does not validate a combination of chartstring and POET data thus, not preventing the user from submitting an ‘incomplete’ form.

Proposed Solution: Use WalkMe to create a validation that will stop the transaction from being submitted if incomplete by prompting the user to fill the corresponding POET data before submission. 

Result: A pilot of the proposed solution showed the following:

Data Validation Pilot Results
Date Range Transaction using WalkMe Correction Triggers Error Correction %
7/12 - 7/31  1,559 241 15.5%

 

The pilot results show that 15.5% of transactions have incomplete POET information and were corrected, thus avoiding a 45 minute, on average, correction time of a submitted incomplete form. Incomplete forms affect reporting of sponsored projects funds, leading to financial risk to the university.

Governance Response

ESR's Enterprise Information Services Committee (EISC), our governing body, reviewed the WalkMe pilot findings and the successful utilization of WalkMe across 12 enterprise systems since January 2020.

Decision: Authorize the deployment to all UC San Diego work computers as a centerpiece of business functionality going forward.
