I want to create a position responsible for our Enterprise Software (Primarily PeopleSoft) I'm trying to come up with a Title that does not signify personnel management like Director or Manager but primarily PeopleSoft Software management. Care to share some good title idea.

Enterprise Software Architect?

Greg,
 
We are working on the same type of thing here.  We are leaning towards something like Peoplesoft Application Administrator (except we are Banner institution).  You could use something more generic like Enterprise Systems Application Administrator, but I'm not sure those applying will know what it means.
 
Just my two cents,
 
Dave

Depending on how you are managing Enterprise Software – technically or administratively (licensing):

 

“Enterprise Software Specialist”

“Enterprise Technology Licensing Specialist” (Or maybe “Licensing Manager” – which doesn’t so directly imply personnel management.)

 

Good luck!

I am curious as to what you mean by ""responsible for our Enterprise Software" as I am considering an issue here.  What exactly does this person do daily and how are they responsible?

Thanks
Theresa

Greg, we created an "Administrative and Student Information Systems Coordinator" position with pretty broad scope of responsibility but similar to what you may be looking to establish.  The job description is attached.

The responses have been very helpful. Just an FYI - I think I am going to steer toward the term Architect probably something like Enterprise Software Architect partly because it is properly descriptive and partly because HR will have no clue how to object to it.

Architect usually refers to a person that is going to design the software. I'm most sure that is a correct description. Here are some synonyms from the Internet: administrator agent, bureaucrat, executive, functionary, manager, mandarin, minister, officer, official, organizer, supervisor executive, director, manager, head, supervisor,president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, executive secretary, head of the department, department head, chief executive, CEO, Chief Executive Officer, supervising director, chairman of the board of directors, director-general, vice-president in charge, person in authority, divisional supervisor, district manager, chair,chairman, dean, registrar, bursar, provost,principal, boss, chief, person in charge,superintendent, minister, bureaucrat,ambassador, leader, governor, controller, chief controller, consul, comptroller, commissar,premier, mayor, organizer, official, master,commander, captain, guardian, custodian,trustee, overseer, leader, inspector, impresario,producer, judge, key person, pencil pusher*, the brains*, big shot*, front office*, the guv'nor*.

Hi Greg,

Since your thinking of creating an Enterprise Architecture position title, are you familiar with ITANA?


This may be what you need to show your HR people, if enterprise architecture (not just Peoplesoft) is what you're considering.

Good luck,

Fred
