OAKS Outage scheduled for May 29 – June 2

The Department of Administrative Services Office of Information Technology announced today that the Ohio Administrative Knowledge System (OAKS) is migrating to new hardware beginning Friday, May 29th at 5:00 p.m. and should be completed prior to Tuesday, June 2nd at 7:00 a.m.

This fall DAS OIT will implement PeopleSoft Financials version 9.2.  This weekend’s outage is in preparation for the OAKS Financials 9.2 upgrade and release of future functionality. This move provides modernization, enhancement and optimization, and provides OAKS with a new technology platform which standardizes the system’s underlying PeopleSoft architecture and supports the larger IT Optimization effort.

What is the impact?

All OAKS applications will be unavailable between Friday, May 29th at 5:00 p.m. and Tuesday, June 2nd at 7:00 a.m.  As a result, there will be no OAKS access during normal state operating hours on Monday, June 1, 2015.

We have worked to minimize any changes this could cause to the look and feel, functionality or user experience.  Users should contact their normal helpdesk points of contact should they encounter any issues.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
